Reviews, Interviews & Features From Real Fans

MNN Family

If you’re interested in joining the MNN team as a reviewer, podcaster, photographer or in the news department head here.

The Management Team

Dan Hemming: Creator, Editor and All Round Good Guy (2 out of 3 ain’t bad!) –
“I started my path here after being given a shot at reviewing over at Scribes Of Metal. After closing MNN for a stint at Midlands Metalheads I thought it was a good idea to ‘get the band back together’ and here we are.”

Dave Barlow: Head Of Underground Coverage – Dave started a love affair with heavy music when he first heard Disturbed’s ‘Believe’ album at 6 years old. In the following 15 years he has enjoyed any form of rock/metal music, from the Goo Goo Dolls through to Annihilator. His all-time favourite band is Papa Roach.

Paris Fawcett: Head Of Podcasts – Paris loves the 90s way too much for someone that was only born in ‘99. She thinks that girls make the best music and spends her days wishing No Doubt would reform and tour the UK.

Jesse Batt: Graphic Designer

The Review Team

Adam Beales: Reviewer

Alex Mumford: Reviewer – Fat but sexy…in a fat kinda way. Good cuddler, would pick a Snickers over a Twix.

Anthony Matthews: Reviewer – Anthony hails from the cold wastes of Northern England where the only respite from the howling winds and the feral populace is music. With tastes ranging as wide as the pacific he still manages to only listen to ‘good’ music.

Emily Calton: Reviewer – After seeing Bon Jovi live at the age of 7, Emily has always had a strong interest in music and the rock scene. When not being a music junkie, Emily is also a huge geography nerd

James Keal: Reviewer – A painfully sarcastic Northerner, talks to himself far too much, loves everything from Gwen Stefani to grindcore.

Jodi Burchett: Reviewer – Antisocial. Sarcy. Angry at the world. I love cats and Creeper. Charlie Hunnam is my husband

Lottie Capel: Reviewer – Creeper more times than years I’ve been alive. I enjoy playing bass and spend an awful lot of time playing video games in my spare time. I also enjoy smooth jazz and writing about my opinions on the internet.

Madi Woollard:  Reviewer – Is 5ft but will still cause havoc in the pit.

Neil Aston: Reviewer

The Underground Team

Colin Osborn: Underground Reviewer – First developed an interest in music when being presented with a budget glockenspiel in his youth. Has tried various sonic means to recapture the high of first hearing that instrument played. All have failed, but occasionally he likes to write about what he hears along the way.

The News Team: 

Ellie Ainsley: Favourite album is Deja Entendu, likes cats more than most people.

Yasmin Hawkins
