      Matthew Russell, a lifelong fan of metal/hard rock music, has been captivated by the genre since birth. Raised in a rich antique and old-fashioned setting from the 1980s and 1990s, his interest unavoidably extended to the music of the time. Furthermore, Matthew’s continuous interest in and deep connection to metal/hard rock music is due in large part to his father’s great affection for the genre. Matthew places a high value on music in his everyday life, spending over 10-12 hours listening to his favorite songs.

     While some may consider this too much, Matthew finds tranquility and quiet of mind by engaging himself in the intriguing world of music. It provides a type of relaxation and an escape from the stresses of daily life. Matthew listens to music that has a special value to him, with each track using a different emotion or memory. While he prefers not to get into specifics, he recognizes the personal significance of the music he listens to. “Hollow” by Pantera is one such music that has a special place in his heart, since it connects deeply with his feelings and experiences. When asked about his first song choice, Matthew strongly chooses “Pull the Plug” by Death. This song holds a special place in Matthew’s artistic journey since it represents his deep attachment to the genre and the emotional depth. In short, Matthew Russell’s love of metal/hard rock music is more than just a passing interest; it is a deep-rooted passion that he has nurtured and treasured his whole life.

      His experiences and upbringing affected his musical preferences, and his devotion to the genre demonstrates the power that music can have on a person’s life. His story serves as a reminder of the immense power that music can have, transcending time and generations to establish connections that run deep into the heart and soul of its listeners.
