-I'm Chris, and I'm from Grand Junction, CO. I'm currently a senior at the Savannah College of Art and Design, studying illustration.
-Some bands/artists that I'm listening to currently are: Meshuggah, Cloudkicker, Animals As Leaders, Woe of Tyrants, Serj Tankian, Hacride, Chimp Spanner, Howl, Opeth, Orphaned Land
-So many musicians inspire me, from a grand scale to just small things, but some that come to mind are Buckethead, the guys from Nightwish (my first album that I've ever purchased was "Once"), Meshuggah, and King Crimson (I could thank them for making me feel proggy).
-I don't particularly like naming favorite albums because my tastes change with time, but my current five faves are: Chaosphere (Meshuggah), The Power To Believe (King Crimson), Opeth (Blackwater Park), Master of Puppets (Metallica), and Lazerus (Hacride)
-I've seen Slayer, Trivium, Buckethead, All That Remains, Killswitch Engage, Behemoth, Manson, Chimaira, White Chapel, God Forbid, Cannibal Corpse, Bullet For My Valentine live.
-I play the viola and the bass guitar.
-I would love to meet Cloudkicker, James Hetfield, Robert Fripp or Akerfeldt. Meeting Buckethead would ruin the mystique.
-Finally, I'd like to join this community because I've been searching high and low on LJ for a community that likes to discuss metal. I also had this crazy idea in my head that I might start reviewing albums and perhaps making album art, and have been searching for a place to maybe post them!
So message me! Let me know what's good.
