Derek "The Chin Hair Of Knowledge" - CoHost Featured

               What’s up everybody, Derek the Chin Hair of Knowledge here.  Believe it or not if you looked at me now, you probably would have never guessed that for about 12 years or so I listened to no form of music what so ever. It was not until about 7th or 8th grade when I really started getting into music.  The first CD I ever bought with my own money was AC/DC- Live At Donington. After that I was hooked and I started branching out. Next was Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath, KISS, The Doors, Motley Crüe, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Slayer and more. Within the next few years, my sister Morgan started getting me into heavier stuff.  Because who she was hanging around with, she was getting more into different types of music, and what she didn't like, I got my first Carcass CD, Deicide CD, Cannibal Corpse CD.

From there I began getting hooked into heavier, faster, more brutal forms of music. Throughout High school, college and even now, I don't just listen to metal, I like a bunch of different genres of music. In the same day I could go from listening to N.W.A’s Straight Outta Compton and right after listen to Ghoul’s We Came For The Dead album.  I am still a pretty new host to the Metal Experience. I enjoy bringing a different side to the radio show since I listen to bands, not a lot of people know or can be kind of obscure for most people’s tastes. My favorite genre of music is Grindcore and Goregrind. I tend to bring different bands of those genres to the table along with other bands of various other metal genres that I think people might like, or might not have heard of prior to me playing them to the show.

           So who knows, maybe one of the bands you hear during my segment might become your next favorite band, only time will tell...
