Born and raised in a sleepy town of New Hampshire. Ryan Chapman has been an avid, and dedicated metal fan for over sixteen years. When he first heard his first true underground album (Opeth’s Black Water Park) he has since been hooked. He helped book music festivals and plan dark acoustic shows. And he has gone to hundreds of shows over the years. He wanted to give back to the amazing community he literally grew up in. To give back he wanted to really see a side of the metal musicians he grew to love and admire. To avoid the typical tropes found in metal journalism he wanted to see a more personal and human side to the artists and what drives and motivates them to create. Please join Ryan and learn more about a world that is often misunderstood and criticized by the mainstream. Open your mind to the dreaming metal muse…
