Hello metalheads, first of all thanks for adding me to this group. I'm a student at Northshore, Auckland and as part of my curriculum I'm working on a research to study about the heavy metal scene in Auckland. The research will involve simple interviews so as to understand how metal bands are accepted here and how the gigs go. I am looking for 5 volunteers, heavy metal fans who attend gigs on a regular basis and have a fair idea of the local bands too. I'd also join them for any gigs in the next 2 months. It'll be exciting to watch new artists, so "PLEASE DO PING ME IF INTERESTED!"
FYI I've sung for a few bands and can pull a few strings, we could jam as well. Cheers!
