Favorite bands :
Like anyone the list is virtually endless, bands like Metallica, Pantera, Death etc go without saying though so here are a few more obscure bands that i enjoy.
All Shall Perish All That Remains
In This Moment Devildriver
The Faceless Zonaria
Shadows Fall Zontox
Favorite guitarists :
Honestly, the guitarists that have had the biggest impact on me as a player are easily James Hetfield and Kirk Hammet, their music is virtually the reason I started playing, bet you've never heard that before eh?
Matt Heafy and Corey Beaulieu taught me so much about being a better player than i could ever have hoped for, from sweep picking to plain old triplets, those guys are absolutely amazing musicians.
Recent guitarists to blow me away;
Chris Storey & Beniko Orum ( All Shall Perish )
Michael "Machine" Keene & Steve Jones ( The Faceless )
Favorite bassists :
IMO all songs should have bass solo's.
Billy Sheen ( Spelling? )
Brandon "Not Griffin" Giffin
Favorite books :
Mathew Reily is a pretty amazing action/adventure writer.. Even though his books are incredibly far fetched and rediculous.
I'll basicaly read anything that involves ancient historical sites, ancient myths, all that kind of shit.
Warcraft books/Warcraft lore, i know its super nerdy, but honestly warcraft has an amazing story, IMO it takes a huge steamer on LOTR.
Favorite tv :
Two and a Half Men
Favorite movies :
Johnny Depp is pretty much the only actor that i enjoy watching.
Other than that, Silent hill is pretty much my all time favourite movie.
Any horror that comes out of asia
Actualy basicaly any horror movies
