Hey, i’m Tristan.
So you’ve landed on my page! Welcome to my little corner of the world where I talk all things Metal. Being a child of the nineties I was moulded by Nu-Metal (don’t laugh). My first CD single, after Robbie Williams was Papa Roach’s “Last Resort”, I’m not doing very well here I am I! Following this Nu-Metal trend until I reached my teens when I discovered real Metal. The pandoras box of Opeth, Megadeth, Killswitch Engage, Death, Every Time I Die, Ignite, Dream Theater and all sorts just spilled out in front of me.
Ten years later, I’m still discovering new genres, new bands and new ideas. From the likes of Fallujah’s forward thinking Technical Death Metal to some of the genius that is Motionless In White’s brand new Graveyard Shift. I don’t listen to everything but I do listen to Metal. After setting up The Metalist, I’ve now been lucky enough to work with some amazing people and have been able to chat to all sorts of dudes from bands all over the world. Finding out what I think anyone who is as big of a fan boy as me might want to know. I might have an opinion but I always visualise Switzerland. Aim to be neutral and impartial. There’s nothing worse than a holier than thou dude who just says “The old stuff was better”… *yawn*.
If you like reviews, interviews and all sorts of Metal business then hopefully you’ll enjoy this blog of mine!
