Your No. 1 Source For Extreme And Atmospheric Music And Film.

Author Eilish Foxen

As a death metal loving, beer and whiskey guzzling, potty mouthed gore obsessee, I figured I would fit right in amongst the realms of writers at Ave Noctum. Having spent my early teens listening to a vast majority of grunge and 80's glam metal, I swiftly graduated to the extreme side of the genre and have stayed there ever since. I spent three years learning how to be a professional metal nerd by studying Magazine Journalism at uni and have written for Terrorizer and MetalMouth. I'm currently in mourning over the loss of the mighty Neurotic Deathfest. Brutal death metal is the love of my life,along with dogs, rats, olives and Game of Thrones.
