    • Hi all at Metal Forum, just found your website and liked it so much I'm Ludo from Venice (Italy); born and raised in a small village in the Dolomites (Italian North-East Alps) my "rock life" started in the Summer 1986, I was 13 and one older friend gave me Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet album. My "metal life" started immediately after that when I bought the cassette of Iron Maiden's Piece of Mind (still today my favorite Maiden album) in the only "electricity and music" shop of my village. Since then I've been to more than 300 concerts and festivals all around Europe, from BB King to Nirvana, from The Rolling Stones to Mayhem, from Scorpions to Faith no More, from Page & Plant to Pantera. I simply love everything is good rock, hard rock, heavy metal. Like everyone of us I guess, I miss the previous life both as concerns our concerts and my main job which is Hosting and Guiding Solo Travelers and Small Groups of Tourists, mainly Rockers and Metalheads, in Venice and surroundings ! After the first lockdown I decided to dig into rock history from the beginnings, in search for hidden gems I've never had the time to discover and listen (just finished the year 1975) and I started my Youtube Channel just to collect and remember all this gems and alternating them with samples of my hosting activity in Venice. In the end I'm glad to be here, if allowed I will try to post some links about my hosting and initiatives in the Promote Yourself section. One thing is sure, when travel will be possible again if someone of you (staff and members) intend to come Venice... I'm your only Rock & Metal Superhost in town Ciao Ludo
    • Live long. Live legendary.
    • It's funny that you should mention Burzum and yet you don't want the song to sound like "a rat that's being raped" when this Burzum's song and many other their songs sound exactly like that! Right now I can't think of other specific titles cuz I'm almost asleep but this song in particular is exactly a rat that's being raped.   On the other hand the growling/whispered screaming is what makes metal good to listen to. Anyway, what I can suggest to you is a band from my country named Shambless whose genre is "Atmospheric Black Metal":
