Today, we’re very happy to present to you a new Epic Metal Blog author: Ansgar Burke from Scottish/German epic heavy metal band Midnight Force. In the past, he wrote articles for different metal platforms – that’s why he’s got more journalistic experience than any of us. Two weeks ago, he already did a great interview with metal queen Jutta Weinhold (Zed Yago/Velvet Viper) for our blog, using his E.P.I.C. nickname crystaltalon. In a couple of days, we’re going to publish Ansgar’s first review about Servants to the Tide’s self-titled debut album, too. But first, we’d like to introduce our new colleague to you.
