"Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just, and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form."
- Plato.

Hi, my name is Sandra, I was born in 1990 in Esbjerg, Denmark but currently I'm living in Århus where I'm studying Political Science.

I have a passion for Hard Rock and Metal - all of its subgenres, but I'm mostly into: Hard Rock, Prog. Rock, Heavy, Power, Symphonic, Thrash and Progressive Metal.

So, where does this passion for Heavy Metal and Hard Rock come from?

My passion for music slowly started in my early teens, at that time I was into Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Green day and Nirvana.

Well, my passion for metal slowly started after I was blessed with Metallica's "Black album". One day, The "Black album" found its way into my good old Sony Discman, and that day was a turning point. So much energy and it was almost therapeutic. This is still the same view I have on music today; a medium to escape and forget the stressful and chaotic world we live in. Music is also my way of expressing my feelings whether I'm angry, down or happy it will always help. I also quickly discovered that Heavy Metal didn't approach other girls in the same way it did to me, but it didn't hold me back from jumping on my bed like a lunatic to bands like Iron Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth, Manowar, Anthrax and Judas Priest etc, while inventing new headbanging/airguitar-moves like a real metalhead. I still do it today, of course ;) 

Another special day in my life was the day where I discovered the band that I'm madly in love with, the band that I simply can't live without and that is: Dream Theater. This magical band has changed many aspects in my life in a way I never thought music could.

Besides spending most of my spare time on music, I like soccer, I love cooking (by which I especially include Manowar, Iron Maiden and some great Melodic Rock), playing guitar, PS2, web designing, computer stuff and movies. I also like reading books and when it comes to fiction Jules Verne rules. He is one of my favourite authors; otherwise I prefer a Stephen King novel once in a while.

Stay heavy and loud

- Sandra
