Hello There!

     Fuckin' hell. Where to begin? They say that beginnings are the toughest part of any project. Journey of a thousand miles and all that. Just a disclaimer; I am terrible at keeping up with this type of stuff. Hell I have my own blog that I haven't posted anything to in well over a year! Be that as it may I want you to know that Comicsnut asked me to post a guest blog like three weeks ago and I am just now getting around to do it, because…. well I guess it's because 1: I am procrastinator and 2: I have been horrendously bogged down in school work.
      Right. So I suppose an introduction is in order. I go by the handle @DeathMetalHero on Twitter ( and any other social media site that some idiot d-bag hasn't already taken my name on. Rest assured I am the one and only.) but you can call me Kronos (Take whatever implications from greek mythology you will from that.) I am a Comic Book connoisseur, a Video Game Virtuoso, and a Death Metal Maniac.
     I learned how to read from comics at the age of 3 and have had a life long passion for them ever since. I am a MARVEL ZOMBIE pure and simple. Sure had some Batman comics as well growing up , but I always found Superman and the rest of the DCU VERY boring. (Still do as a matter of fact. HA!) I was always reading Spider-Man, X-Men, and Fantastic Four so I never really cared what the JLA, the Flash, or any other DC charters were doing, and after discovering Ghost Rider and the Punisher it was all over for DC. I guess it's just the way I'm wired, and not much has changed since then. Granted I do read other things (Image, Darkhorse, and Sirius stuff) but the 616 Marvel U is where I have spent most of my time reading comics.
     I picked up my first video game at about 4; Super Mario Bros./ Duck Hunt on the NES. And actually I had played plenty of games on my cousins Atari 2600 prior to that (most notably the original pitfall) but SMB/DH on the NES was the first game and system that was actually MINE. I enjoyed the hell outta that game, but didn't really love video game until I got my copy of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for NES. Yeah I know, "What a horribly hard game for a kid to play!" You're damn right it was hard. So hard in fact that sometimes I would just sit and look at the cover for a while dreaming of the coolness that I was missing out on, until I would finally pop the cartage in and have another go. To this day I don't think I've ever finished that damn game! Didn't matter though, I was hooked on video games from there on out. In fact Currently rockin' a 320gb PS3 and slowly working my way through Uncharted 3 (Slowly because I never really get the chance to play.)
     I grew up in a house where Classic rock and hair metal (Yeah I know. I can hear you all groaning now!) was pretty much always on tap. So as I grew up I would try to find other good rock and roll bands but always ended up listening to the classics. Except for Nirvana I don't listen to any of the other "rock" that I used to listen to. I actually find what passes for "rock and roll" these days a repugnant, idiotic, mundane imitation of what it used to be, but that's a topic for a future blog. I was in my sophomore year of high school and a coworker brought in Fear Factory's OBSOLETE to listen to after closing. Sure it may not be the heaviest album by my standards now, but I was instantly enthralled by the crunchiness of the guitars, the deep boom of the drums, and Burton Bell's vocals. My taste in music quickly changed after that and I was on the look out for anything that was even remotely like that album. And thus my love of metal was born, and has gotten progressively heavier ever since to the point where some of my favorite bands are Fleshgod Apocalypse, Cannibal Corpse, and Beneath the Massacre.
      Well i hope you've enjoyed my first post to Comic Nut's Jar, and if you didn't then I'm sorry you were bored but you did make it to the end so good on you.
