Introducing Matt Knutson (MK)

Postby hellbound1345 » Sun Aug 29, 2010 8:28 am

Hey everyone,

I'm Matt Knutson, a new Junior Writer here at Rockfreaks. I live in sunny Santa Barbara, California, where I'm studying English literature at UCSB. I'm originally from San Diego, which is about 3 hours south of where I live now. I'm 20 years old and I've been a diligent student of heavy metal for nearly the last ten years. I grew up on rock and listened to Guns N' Roses, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC before I got into metal. I first heard Metallica's "Battery" in the 7th grade, and I've been obsessing about metal, from all genres, countries, and time periods, ever since. I have a very broad taste in music, but I usually end up listening to metal at the end of the day. Some of my favorite bands include Bad Religion, Averse Sefira, Slayer, Dead Can Dance, King Crimson, The Misfits, Boards of Canada, and Morbid Angel. In music, I generally value honesty of intent over other factors. Contributing to Rockfreaks combines my two main hobbies, writing and geeking over metal, so it goes without saying that I'm excited to start writing reviews!

Welcome to the crew Matt. I can't even begin to describe how awesome it is to have you and Neil on board, able to attend shows which will probably never take place over here in Europe, least of all here in Denmark.

'sup dude, I was liking me your trial review, so am looking forward to seeing some produce from your hands. I would say it's nice to have a fellow student of English literature on board, but in reality, saying that I really do any studying would be stretching it. Anyway, blablabla, welcome aboard.

I can definitely relate with that. I'm stoked to have added Rockfreaks to my growing list of paper-writing distractions.
