Simon Arinze as been attending gigs and festivals since the early 2000’s, with Fall Out Boy swiftly followed by the Kerrang Christmas Bash being his firsts.


A fan of all forms of Heavy Metal, but with a particular soft spot for Power Metal, he can often be seen stomping around venues in the South West, Midlands and South Wales. Simon currently reviews and photographs for MetalTalk, with occasional work for other sites.

When he is not enjoying rock and Metal music, you can find Simon pondering rocks of a different variety during his day job as a geologist.
