Founder, Publisher, Editor, Author. Mike is currently in retail, and although that takes up a lot of his time, he is the also guitarist of local melodic thrash metal band, Aspired Infliction. His favourite bands include In Flames, Nightwish, Dark Tranquility, and At the Gates.
Author, Promoter, Merciless truth, Sex jokes. Mike has been in the Buffalo scene for 19 years (since ’97) or so, promoting shows and supporting your favorite bands. He holds the world title for “The World’s Slightliest Attractive Male” and doesn’t feel the least bit sorry about his love of old Limp Bizkit or Primer 55. Some of his newer musical loves are Buffalo’s own Darkapathy and the wrestling themed sensations, Eat the Turnbuckle.
