What’s Full Metal Hipster?

Greetings and salutations, folks! My name’s Shayne and I run this here blog and the podcast it’s named after. It’s called Full Metal Hipster because I write about heavy metal for the Internet and some of the incredibly entertaining content I write pisses off dimwits. Those dimwits frequently call me a hipster because they think it’s an actual insult. Also, I like the movie Full Metal Jacket. That’s really the extent of the thought I put into it.

I hope you enjoy what I’m doing here. It’s a total labor of love. I’m clearly not making any money nor is that my intention. I love underground heavy metal and I want to share some of the stuff I find with as many people as possible. Total support for total death and all that. That being said, if you’re in a band/run a label/do PR and want to share your work with me, I’m all ears. If I dig it I’ll try to work it into the podcast or website and maybe ask to talk to you if you’re not one of those robe-wearing, pseudonymous, basement black metal types who shuns social interaction. I’d love to hear from non-musicians, too. Do you publish a zine? Make films? Run a crazy website? Get in touch, I’d love to check your stuff out!

    I have recently started up a record label/sublabel, Redefining Darkenss Records & Seeing Red Records. I have a list of projects I am working on now, including but not limited to, releases from Vintage Warlords, Decrepit (US), Haul (Indo), From the Depths (US), Gorepunch (feat. Mike Heller of Malignancy & Fear Factory), and From the Hellmouth (featuring Alan Cassidy of Black Dahlia Murder). The first and most recent of which, Vintage Warlords, was just released on May 19th. I would love to be able to send you an invite to my Haulix promo page with the record.

    A little of my background: I was the bass player for Candlelight Recording Artists’, Abigail Williams from 2007-2009 and was featured on “In the Shadow of a Thousand Suns”. I also played in a band called System Divide on Metal Blade Records (songs feat. on both “The Collapse EP” and “The Conscious Sedation”) and co-wrote songs on Century Media Artist, Aborted’s “Coronary Reconstruction EP”.

    Please let me know if you are interested in receiving future promos from my labels upcoming releases – if so, please forward me your contact info. I appreciate your time.

    Cheers,

    Thomas

  2. Before Colored Sands was released this year, it was receiving advance positive press from some of the bigger news outlets and I saw some commenters online wondering if it would become hipster metal , and they made it seem like that was a derogatory thing to happen to it. It s interesting because musically it seems so far removed from most of what gets classed in with hipster metal .
