Kelly Fay is a recent graduate from Emerson College with a degree in marketing communications. She is pursuing a career in entertainment publicity, specifically in music and film. She has a variety of experience in marketing, managing social media accounts for various entertainment media, including organizations, films, and web-based productions. She is the former bassist of a Rhode Island-based melodic metalcore band Patterns of Myra (formerly East of Eden). Along with going to shows and jamming, her other interests include running, playing video games, tattoos, and lots of sushi.
David Marulanda is a graduate from Boston University’s College of Communication. He is pursuing a writing career now that making the NBA is out of reach for him. He writes short stories and other works of fiction in addition to writing for HXC Magazine.
David enjoys metal, hardcore, and other offshoot genres in between, and also some other weirder, most likely European stuff. He also enjoys reading sci-fi, playing sports and board games, smoking hookah, and finding new bands. He drinks more coffee than you and has a tendency to get hit in the face. Tell him about fun shows he should go to and new music to listen to. (Seriously, I’ll consider almost all requests.)
Maria Spiridigliozzi. An Emerson graduate with a degree in Print and Multimedia Journalism. Maria likes to scream alone in her car to the sounds of My Chemical Romance, HIM, and Fall Out Boy. She currently also works for Sideshow Network, a podcast network based out of Los Angeles. On the side she takes online classes, attends random shows, and attempts to fight the patriarchy.
If you live in NYC and you like hardcore music you have probably seen him at a show.
Trey got into heavy music at an early age when his dad got him into bands such as Megadeth and Slayer. He later discovered two bands that set the course for his music preferences, Slipknot and Green Day. As much as Trey loves metal and hardcore, he has as much love for pop punk bands, as well as a few guilty pleasures. Trey loves any and all music. Fun facts: he has a hamster named after his favorite Green Day album, he’s afraid of clowns, and he likes eating straight hot sauce.
If he isn’t jamming to We Came As Romans, Real Friends or Emarosa, Trey is probably at Taco Bell or watching Clerks.
