Michael Baker


Michael Baker is a man with a frightening affection for 90’s metal, to a degree where 90’s metal tries to keep away and let him down politely with mace. He thought it would be a good idea to write some reviews in an attempt to get back onto music’s good side. With a music taste which is getting stranger everyday: Michael only seeks to alienate himself from conventional sense. Through an ever fluctuating music list filled with prog, punk and everything in between; Michael is a hoot at children’s parties.

Smells faintly of cabbage.

Unsane – Sterilize

‘Sterilize’ is an album with a singular dead end destination and nihilistic purpose, but with many ways of taking you there.
