New Transcendence is excited to welcome Anti Hero Magazine journalist, Randy Shatkowski, to the family! Read his statement below:
Ever since I started downloading MP3s behind my parents’ back on an old iMac desktop and 56k modem as a teenager (pro tip: do *not* let your conservative Christian parents find your collection of Disturbed songs), I’ve been obsessed with music. I write reviews in my head for most albums as I listen to them, and people seem to like reading my thoughts on things, so why not write formal reviews? Whether it’s just a Facebook post or on a website like New Transcendence, I enjoy finding and sharing the best new music I can get my hands on.
I wanted to join NT because I’ve seen a lot of their material pop up recently and they have a real passion for promoting up-and-coming acts, which is exactly what I want to help do.
New Transcendence Owner/Co-Founder, Barrett Stephens had the following to say on his addition to the team: My meeting Randy was purely coincidence but I’m glad that it happened. A few months ago, I was added to a group on Facebook called The H.E.M.I.S.P.H.E.R.E music movement, by our good friend Bradley Dillon from New Fury Media/The Sickest and Randy’s writing with Anti Hero has always impressed me. He has a way of painting a visual with his words, which is exactly what you want in a review. I look forward to showing everyone what he can do, starting with his review for The Day of the Beast‘s The Ultimate Cremation Pyre!
