• Ulla Roschat. Ulla's collection.
    Ulla runs the The Wicked Lady Show podcast and accompanying Tumblr, and contributes to Paranoid Hitsophrenic.
  • Justin C. Justin's collection.
    Justin C. is a tech writer and classical guitarist. He's as surprised as you are that he gets to write about metal.
  • Craig Hayes. Craig's collection.
    Craig lives in New Zealand, where he hosts his own blog, Six Noises. Craig’s written about punk, metal and experimental music in magazines and online at PopMatters, Hellbound, Last Rites, No Clean Singing, Noisey, Invisible Oranges, Under the Radar, … and plenty more sites. Craig’s produced music interviews, documentary segments, and hosted specialist music shows for a number of NZ radio stations. Craig is old. A hermit. And he’s convinced that punk is not dead.
  • Matt Hinch. Matt's collection.
    Matt Hinch wants to play music again but is way too busy at home in Forest Mills, ON for that. Instead he writes about metal on breaks at work (and occasionally at home) for his Kingdom of Noise blog, Hellbound, and Scratch the Surface (and formerly Ghost Cult Magazine). Then sleeps like a baby.
  • Steven Leslie. Steven's collection.
    Steven is a freelance writer, terrible guitarist, and all around death, black and doom fanatic, who is just happy to be writing about something he actually likes for a change..
  • Calen Henry. Calen's collection.
    Calen is a long time metal fan with a penchant for unnecessarily thorough research. Having traversed the metal landscape through the depths of doom and the peaks of grind, he's settled on things melodic, with a bit of black metal coldness, since he lives in Canada.
  • Karen A. Mann. Karen's collection.
    Karen A. Mann is a longtime freelance writer based in Raleigh, N.C. She has maintained a rambling music blog, Mann's World since 2003. Her top metal moment is seeing Judas Priest on the Screaming for Vengeance tour at age 16 and getting Rob Halford's autograph afterward.
  • Hera Vidal. Hera's collection.
    Hera Vidal is powered by coffee, metal, and research. When not researching and writing about black metal, she enjoys crime thrillers, studying the brain, collecting books, and listening to music at an ungodly volume. You can also catch her on Twitter.
  • Bryan Camphire.
    Bryan Camphire was weaned on heavy music and odd time signatures in his native Pittsburgh, studied Criminology and Butoh dance as well as performed doom metal for a decade in New York City, studied and played gamelan in Central Java for three years, and now works with children at a group home in Chicago, living as a new parent obsessively listening to new music every single day.
  • Master of Muppets. Master's collection.
    Master of Muppets doesn't know you or like you, but he still wants to share all the best metal that Bandcamp has to offer with you. He also throws random words together and passes them off as reviews at Angry Metal Guy, and when he's not babbling about atmoblack or doom he's likely listening to it while cursing the gods for ripping Agalloch and Altars of Grief away from him.

I'm grateful for the the following amazing writers, who has given us permission to reprint some of their work.
    The mighty Autothrall is the man behind From the Dust Returned, and known as one of the most competent (and prolific) reviewers of the music we love.

We regularly feature photos by these talented photographers. Many thanks to all of them for giving me permission to use their work, or making it available under a Creative Commons license.
