It has been 12 years, off and on, that I have enjoyed this forum. I believe this forum to be the most powerful and thought provoking one today. It has shaped my knowledge of metal and the deeper meaning behind it. For what it is worth I always mention this site in my everyday conversations.
But the time of my departure is here. I had the ideal that I could meet other metal heads in a physical sense, instead of just writing on this forum. Maybe this whole time I was clueless as to the nature of my fellow Hessians, and I have to understand that I am different from the normal, even here.
I came to this forum in 2000, and had the pleasure of some of the greatest conversations ever, and with those beings who are legendary. Antti Boman and Larry and Corey from Acerebus come to mind.
I feel that I have not done my part here as I should. As stated about or to be clear, I like interacting with people and not sitting behind the screen. I thought by me making a video(s) that I could maybe inspire some more social interaction between us here. Again, I have done wrong and assumed that I could make an impact or bond friendships with fellow Hessians.
So thus I have decided to continue on the path since coming to this forum and create my art, and spread it to various places. On a side note, I have had the honor of writing an official song for a underground cd compilation, so this has compelled me to excel my efforts. I am 32 and I know that someday I will not be able to physically play so I am going forward with this effort.
While I do admit to liking some attention in what I create, this in no way means that I will solely create art for this point alone. No, I have learned well here, and will carry the spirit of this website in a real physical form.
I thank those who have showed the path, and for the life of me, I can not recall the various names I had as my user name(moving across country and computer crashes caused this dilemma) so many of you may not know who I am. But I raise a glass to you and celebrate your knowledge.
RIP GIOVANNI 2000-2012
