Name: Bart Meijer
A jack of all trades in daily life, likes a lot of different things as long as they’re intense and not mediocre. The first time he heard metal – Iron Maiden, Metallica – was in his older brothers’ bedroom, and after that started exploring the world of music on his own. This meant frequent visits to the local music store and taking home albums because of their awesome artwork; the more bands appeared on his musical résumé, the more his musical taste developed. First going from traditional metal to death, black and doom, and then went on to also include stoner and post rock/metal. It’s great to occasionally still discover an awesome new (or old) band. Favorite bands include My Dying Bride, Type O Negative, Judas Priest, Slayer and Nevermore.
