My name is Ryann and I am the host of the Metalcore Madness show.
I was born in the sunny town of Nuneaton in 1994 and grew up with a wide range of music. My first personal choice was dance and house and I think this was what first influenced me to want to be a DJ. As I got older, some of my friends got me into rock music and this was also around the time I started listening to some of my dad’s choices of classic rock such as; Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Kiss.
From here, I started to find my own taste in music and moved on to more modern rock, metal and metalcore such as Linkin Park, Killswitch Engage, Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch, Architects and my favourite band Bring Me The Horizon.
My diverse love of music helped me later in life when I went on to become a DJ. I first started out with dance and house music as this, at the time was my first choice of music. My love for rock and metal developed and I started working at The Crew. From there on, everything fell into place and here I am now doing two of my favourite things – listening to great music and hosting my own show.
