About Chris Harris

I'm Chris Harris, an opinionated wordsmith who's been listening to metal, analyzing it, and writing about it for years for various media outlets ranging from MTV News and Rolling Stone to Noisecreep.com and Revolver. In 2010, I launched my own blog, GunShyAssassin.com, and ever since, the site has assembled an allegiant horde of fans who can appreciate GSA's sardonic tone and overall aim to report metal news in an objective way while voicing informed opinion.

GunShyAssassin.com is dedicated to truth, justice, and intense music. From tour dates and album news to opinion pieces and exclusive streams, GSA is a last vestige of truth in a metal blogosphere beholden to label personnel and advertising interests. The site has many voices, but is primarily run by one man with an unrelenting tendency to burn bridges and piss people off.

What is Patreon? It's sort of like KickStarter, but instead of funding one big project, you'd be helping me publish new blog posts every single day. Think of it as tossing a couple of bucks into a tip jar each month for the daily entertainment and information the site provides.

There are reward tiers (details follow) that you can sign up for, depending on the level of support you're willing to provide. Like stockholders, I'm even offering patrons the chance to vote on key matters involving the site, including which other bands the site will bans from future coverage.

I'll remove ads from GSA entirely once I generate $500 in monthly patron contributions, and will renew the site's domain upon reaching $300 in monthly sponsorships.  

If the site continues beyond May 11, GunShyAssassin.com will continue to remain a free, subscription-less site.

This Patreon thing is simply for readers who dig what I've been doing and want to help keep the site going.

GSA isn't about me anymore. It's about you and your encouragement. If you're down with what GSA is about, or my writing's have ever made you laugh, or we've turned you on to an obscure doom band you never knew about or even clued you in to an awesome tour rolling through your area, consider supporting at $1 per month or more.

Your patronage helps me to keep churning out news stories, and will give me the freedom to make the site even better!
