Brisbane, Australia.

I promote a lot metal in a lot of ways. I like to focus on the upcoming and the Australian releases. I love hardcore as much as I love metal. I interview a lot of big bands for a podcast coming up that I’m very excited about. I do Pr for metal bands so if you want some exposure to the industry hire me! Metal and hardcore only.

I’m a metalhead from Munich, Germany. Music, especially metal in all its glory, is a huge part of my life, and attending live shows is my “happy place”.

If you like to think in genres, you can mainly find me in the prog corner. But I stick my ears into the countless other styles too, as it’s the variety that makes things very special.

Started my journey in the early 90s, with all its ups and downs. The musical landscape has changed a lot since then, digitalization brought problems for bands (one of the main challenges is to be seen / heard in times of information overflow), but also new opportunities for them and their fans.

What remained is the mesmerizing effect of music. It’s always there, and to dive into the chords and melodies is an incredible gift for me.

One can find a lot of great music out there, old and new, if you keep eyes and ears opened. So it’s my pleasure to join the Noob Heavy Crew and help to spread the word a little bit. Thanks for taking me on board.

My name is Zach. I have a very diverse music taste, even outside of metal. There are very few metal subgenres I don’t thoroughly love. Some favorite metal albums of mine this year have been Forgotten Paths by SaorThe 13th Beast by Malevolent Creation, and Demiurgon by Equipoise. I can’t play a lick of music, but I love promoting it and introducing others to artists I think deserve more attention, whether that be through my short and sweet reviews on the Zax Record Reviews socials, or the longer reviews here at Noob Heavy.

Tehran, Iran.

I am an English teacher by profession and it has given me the propitious opportunity to acquaint myself with various topics and fields of study, only to make me firmly believe that I truly know nothing about anything. Music to me is the main hobby, alongside other forms of entertainment such as cinema, anime, series, and games, particularly board games (oh I LOVE this one). To be honest, I am thinking about pursuing a career in music or entertainment in general in the future.

I’m from Melbourne, Australia and I’ve been a metalhead since the late 80s.

In the early 90s I started a metal band called Cataclysm, which was the perfect outlet for my brothers and my mates to write and play music locally. The band eventually disbanded in the mid 90s.

In 2017 I reincarnated my musical endeavours and started a new studio project; Death Metal band Aeons Abyss. Our first aim was to record and release all our 90s music, and we achieved this in 2019.

I really love the current underground metal scene, and the ability to connect with other metalheads via social media.

To that end, I often post about all things metal on my band’s Instagram account, and have started a series on Noob Heavy called Metal Redux, which is all about putting forward historic metal gems that are there to be rediscovered, especially for those new to the scene.

I’m a metal fan from the US Midwest. Grew up on the classics like Dio, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Black Sabbath. Got into modern metal at first only looking for the best guitarists but became obsessed with the genre as a whole. I like pretty much every sub genre but listen to a lot of death and black metal. I like keeping up with new releases and going to shows as much as I can.

Yo! What’s up, longtime metal fan from the USA. Got hooked on the stuff back in middle school when my mom took me to see Iron Maiden in 2006 and haven’t look back since. My taste tends to jump all over the shop, both under the metal umbrella and elsewhere. I used to be the Metal Director at my college radio station and currently also play and write music in my band Svn.Seeker, I also contribute reviews and interviews to Alternative Control. I’m a big video game fan and part-time collector, PS2 and Dreamcast are my 2 favorite systems by far. The backlog is seemingly never-ending but maybe one day I’ll get around to playing them all.




My content is mainly focused on reviews and plenty of recommendations of what I’m listening too. I’m an avid fan of black metal and all types of dark, weird music. But I listen to a little bit of most genres. 

I’ve been a massive music fan for most of my life and decided I wanted to share my thoughts and opinions with other music fans. So I decided to start an IG page in December of 2018 and that’s how I got started. Since then, I’ve just been having fun writing about whatever music I find exciting.

Noob Heavy was started in April of 2019 by Carcassbomb. Over a surprisingly short time this transitioned into many projects and forms of underground promotion, eventually putting together a team from around the world united by a passion for writing about heavy music of all genres. That’s right, even core.

Noob Heavy also provides PR services and is an official Australian Business, ABN: 29513175919

This is a seperate venture from the free coverage on Noob Heavy like reviews, news and interviews which will always be free. We will never ask a band to pay for coverage and I don’t write bias reviews from my clients. We write about what we want. It does however provide access to our network, mailing list and social media platforms for promotional purposes.
