About Ben Hutcherson

Patreon said I should tell you about my journey.
Journey? Can't say I'm a fan. I'm a metalhead, after all.

*mixture of applause and audible groaning*

Howdy folks. I'm Ben, and I'm honored to have the chance to connect with y'all about music--including, but not limited to, heavy metal. You probably know me as the long haired guy who plays a flying V and growls in Khemmis. You might also know me as the long haired guy who plays a variety of pointy guitars and growls in Glacial Tomb. Maybe you know me as the long haired guy who writes about metal for academic and journalistic outlets (e.g., Decibel, Noisey/Vice). Hell, you might know me as the long haired guy who was once your Sociology professor. 

That's me, the Doctor of Doom.*

With your support, I can keep doing all of those things and more. "Like what?" you ask.
  • Guitar and recording gear reviews
  • Deep dives into my personal gear and music collection
  • Songwriting and guitar lessons
  • In depth discussions about music, life, and community
  • Reimagining pop hits as (more or less) serious metal songs. You have seen the "Smooth" cover, haven't you?
  • More cool things I haven't even thought of yet. But rest assured, they will be excellent.

Welcome aboard, friends!

-Ben
