Music Notes: Top Albums for 2018

I haven’t written about music in ages and I think it’s about time even though I still feel like an absolute armature. Music has always been my first love and writing about it can sometimes be hard as I am pretty easy to please. I love sharing great music, and making this list was difficult….

2017: Spain – Resurrection Fest

So we’re finally semi recovered after 11 hours sleep and I can reflect on the last week of absolutely craziness. Getting there: Holy shit. The mission we found ourselves on was challenging to say the least. 14 hours of flying with Taag (upgraded planes, yay!), a stop over in Luanda and finally landing in Lisbon…

Best of 2017: Metal, Punk and all things alternative

This is my favourite albums of 2017, in no particular order. I’ve always said that I’m married to Heavy Metal but Punk is my sugardaddy. My taste in music may be on the darker side but I’m open to listening to anything that will feed my soul, put a smile on my face or bring…
