About the author

I am a fan of all things Mettle! I have been a freelance Heavy Metal & Hard Rock Journalist for over a decade, and a fan of music for over four decades. I have written for a number of websites, and magazines, including Brave Words, Metal Maniacs, Metal Covenant, Metal Temple, etc. I am so appreciative of having met many great musicians, fans, and having celebrated hearing so many variations of Metal. I was reticent to join Social Media for quite awhile. I began with doing a few music reviews on YouTube under the name Mettle Milieu. The response has been quite favorable. I am grateful to have finally joined FaceBook under the same appellative. Now, I am excited to write reviews, perform more detailed interviews, and attend more live venues for this highly acclaimed site. I am also grateful for my wife Wendy "MettleMaiden" Francisco for all her support for the past 17 years with all my endeavors.
