    What are you currently listening to?

    Avenged, Bungle, Ghost, BLS, flamenco artists… soundtracks and scores… yeah not much. I’ve gotten pretty bored of metal because I’ve listened to it so much, so I’m out giving new styles of music a try. So far I’m loving whatever pops up on shuffle, haha.
