About True_Pentagore
Greetings! My name is Ryk Weston, a music journalist for the past 18 years, I also play guitar for a punk/metal outfit called Rotting Beef Carcasses, but I really don't talk about that too much because it's a joke band and we're nothing special. I spend most of my waking hours writing features and interviewing artists.

Born and raised in Northern California, I have spent my life obsessing over music. Weened on the rock hits played on KMEL, my tastes graduated to extreme metal although I never lost focus on the real essence of music and it's true potential. THis was the main reason I got into music journalism because it just wasn't enough to listen to it. The urge to write about it consumed me and got me to where I am now.

I've run my own music publications including 'The Sermon' (1990-2001), Pentagore Newsletter (1997-2002), as well as pentagore.com for a brief time. Writing stints include Nonco Media, The San Diego Reader, and lastly my writing for Ultimate Guitar. Most of my time is devoted to my webzine on Myspace (www.myspace.com/pentagore) as well as contributing to other smaller webzines as well.
