Much like Rustyn my introduction to heavy music came in the form of Kiss with their Alive! album as I entered my rebellious, angry teenage years. From there it was Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and then the NWOBHM explosion that sealed the deal. When thrash was invented in the ealry '80's it became my favourite sub-genre. While it's true that I am an ordained minister in a traditional Christian denomination I am and always have been Too Metal For Church.... the name of my twice-weekly show on Metal Nation Radio.
