Napalm Death are very excited to be part of the second leg of Slayer’s farewell tour! Having been a fan since back in the day, I never would have thought when I bought the import copy of “Show No Mercy” that playing grindcore would catapult us into this universe. We’ll see you in July!

About the Author

Love music! Being around it, watching it, sometimes even playing it since I was a little Trouble-Maker growing up in the Orange County California Punk Scene. I was that one kid who would scale walls and fences just to get a glimpse in side venues to see big bands like Iron Maiden, Circle Jerks, Van Halen ,Black Flag, etc, etc. My past job's has taking me to many cool places. I worked as a PR Asst that has helped with actors & actresses. I have also helped a few bands with their bookings, promos and some management opportunities. For me, music has always been my drug even when I found myself caught up in the drug scene here in the Los Angeles area where I now call home. Today I'm proud to say I've been clean & sober from drug use since 2000. Rock is what I'm mostly into! "Shit that moves you, Shit that has heart and soul." Says the late great Dimebag. I'm currently working as a west coast rep for the radio program Maximum Threshold Radio @ ( You can find me @ where you can see my many journey's into the music scene. MTR: Show email: Email:
