We at The Metal Wanderlust seek to spread the word about both underground and mainstream bands in hopes that you will discover new music and help bands gain the recognition they deserve.
Meet the Staff.
Ashley Gould: I started The Metal Wanderlust in early 2016 after mulling over the idea of combining my love for the Metal scene and writing. As we know Wanderlust is a desire to travel and I figured the name would be suitable because Metal comes from various countries and it can lead to many a travelled road. Since forming the site I have sought out to cover the Underground Metal scene along with mainstream acts in hopes that I will inspire others to discover new music, because lets face it the Metal scene is huge and full of undiscovered talent. We post reviews, interviews, and many other Metal related things. I enjoy all realms of Metal so it is hard to pin point a favourite and I have a healthy obsession in constantly finding more music and bands out there who deserve recognition. This is not a hobby, this is a way of life and everyone in it I consider family.
Andrew Cook: “I like METAL. I REALLY like METAL. I catch fish with METAL hooks, drink Beer from METAL cans, drive a car made out of METAL and even eat with a fucking METAL spoon! Metal as Fuck hey”
UPDATE – On a more recent note, The Metal Wanderlust headquarters has moved to the sunny shores of Australia, Brisbane to be precise, as Ashley has decided to step back a little and actually live her life for she is still young, whilst Andrew is old and grumpy and has nothing better to do than yell at the staff all day and drink beer. So although we have moved and Andrew has taken the reigns of a fantastic platform laid down by Ashley, things may move forward in a slightly different direction, but with the same aims written above. We seek to spread the good word of Metal from all over the world far and wide, and bring a few laughs along in the process. Stick around folks! Enjoy the ride!
