Actually I'm George, the sole member of Minstrelblud, and I'm new to this forum and wanted to say hi. I'm an amateur pianist with metal influences. I've been listening to progressive and power metal from around the world for the past twenty years. As a pianist, I really enjoy a good ballad, but I nothing is more amazing than when the piano is the center of attention in a fast aggressive song. X japan, Symphony X, Angra, Pain of Salvation, Edguy, and Kamelot are some of my favorites groups.
