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!
