Social Sundays at Metal Digest.

Featuring and bringing together members from our global community.

We’re all about making community-driven decisions and spreading the word organically about the things we love, relevant brands we discovered, and inspiring people who we look up to.

So, we built this space for us.

We’ll put the kettle on, you bring the cookies.

What’s the one value you want to pass on to our readers?

There are the basic human values which must be always practiced, but I would also add being realistic and practical as core values.

You are about to make a grand entrance. What song comes on as your soundtrack?

There would be several ones and depends on where I’m entering. But since I must choose only one, I would go for ‘The Martyrs Prayer’ from the ‘Iconoclast’ album by the legendary Maltese Epic doom masters: ‘FORSAKEN’

Who put you on this path?

Definitely my parents – I grew up in a Rock n’ Roll household. Thanks to my father who was a huge Beatles and Rolling Stones fan… moreover, through him I have discovered several other artists such as Blondie, The Police, Santana & Black Sabbath among others in my early years of life! Both of my parents used to also work in a local nightclub close to where I grew up and at this club used to do Las Vegas style shows and booked 70’s/ 80’s bands which I got to see when I was still in my early teens!

Moving forward I have had the opportunity to see several local bands playing live plus I was already heavily listening to Iron Maiden, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Ozzy Osbourne. In the early 90’s I got introduced to the first underground bands through cassette trading! I am the proud owner of several demos from bands who are now heavy weights in the Metal Industry. (Btw still have the cassette tapes in my collection). From 1994 onwards I was attending underground Metal gigs nearly on a weekend basis.

That is what drew me to the industry and where it all started.

Best album ever? (more points for something interesting)

‘Iconoclast’ album by the legendary Maltese Epic doom masters: ‘FORSAKEN’
