As a co-founder and creative director of Metal Digest, the Normless Music Magazine, I lead a team, along with my business partner, working across various projects, from special features, covering shows, events, and interviews.
Adam and I started out with a massive leap of faith -just the two of us and a web developer willing to cope with my aesthetic O.C.D. We have since grown the team into a workforce of 8 brilliant music journalists, who contribute daily to the magazine.
Our diverse, normless curriculum integration focuses on different perspectives, viewpoints, and interdisciplinary approaches to meet the needs of our…
La Hera was founded by a community of artists at and named after the beautiful and powerful greek goddess Hera.
Hera was the Queen of the Olympian gods. In the story of the Quest of the Golden Fleece, Hera was a gracious protector of the heroes. She was Pure and stood for Truth and Honour.
Following the first relaxation of the lockdown rules stemming from the 2020 pandemic, SODOM immediately returned to working creatively, which is one of the reasons why Genesis XIX has turned into precisely what the musicians had in mind.

I wish this recipe…
Short answer: No we do not.
As a music journalist, you get a lot of demos. And a lot of press releases. On a daily basis, no days off. You go into a listening session and you come out on your hands and knees barely able to speak.
And maybe some music will have an extraordinary impact on you, maybe not. Should we only speak of the things we like, ignoring the rest?
