TONY MOTTRAM'S SHOT OF THE MONTH
Yo Ho Ho!! Here We Go!
18 & LIFE BY CHRIS NELSON
Luke 'Loki' Milne
Roger Berserk Fauske
"Metal, for me, has been a consuming passion and lifestyle choice for over twenty years.
"I am either, listening to it, reading about it or watching it live.
"I prefer my Metal to be extreme rather than mainstream; I am not stuck in a particular genre, just as long as it's 'face ripping'."
