    Unfortunately i'm over 40, but i have a young taste in most things (especially music) so if anybody fancies a chat about it feel free to message me. I listen to stuff like Of Mice & Men, My Chemical Romance, Avenged Sevenfold. Currently still a bit obsessed with the most recent Bring Me the Horizon album, even though i've never liked them before. Pondering whether i should give their other albums a try, they seem to quite a bit louder than this one. Not that that would bother me necessarily, my ears like loud. Loud blocks out the world.
