Let me start off by doing a little introduction to this new, somewhat odd column. I have been listening to obscure hard rock and heavy metal for 10+ years and during this time I have discovered some really fantastic bands and artists out there; bands that I felt had enough potential and talent to top the music scene and carve their very own mark in this crazy world of hard music.

For whatever reason those bands and musicians didn't get the big break and disappeared like a ghost in the fog.

I've started searching for these out of the way bands and musicians in the mid-90s, and with the power of the internet I've been able to track down a few of them. But still, there are so many mysteries out there, so many rocks yet unturned and so many treasures waiting to be rediscovered. With the creation of Maximum Metal and its many useful resources, I'm hoping to solve some of those mysteries and bring some of these deserving artists to the forefront again.

This is my mission. This is the sole purpose of Where Are You? To unlock some doors and ask some questions that I haven't seen anyone else ask. So lets grab our metal detectors and see what we can find.
