After developing a grunge archive site called Collecting Nirvana, and running a handful of metal feature and review sites dating back to the late 90s (Hard Rock & Metal/Metal Heavy/METALBUZZ), Inhale the Heavy (ItH) was conceived and launched in 2012 by an old, black coffee drinking curmudgeon named Ken.
The main goal of Inhale the Heavy is to help lesser-known bands and musicians gain increased exposure. Nothing is more satisfying to Ken than sharing the music he loves, and hearing that a review or a tweet resulted in a new fan for a deserving artist.
During the last five years, Inhale the Heavy has grown to feature a multitude of guest writers, and boasts a tight knit group of talented writers that live on three different continents.
Unlike most metal blogs, Inhale the Heavy will only publish mostly positive reviews. This may seem supercilious, but it is not Ken’s wish to completely trash a band or artist that he and his team may simply not understand. We strive for quality, not quantity.
Heavy Fact: Inhale the Heavy’s logo was designed by Jean Saiz. In addition to being a very patient and talented artist, Jean is the guitarist/vocalist for the Miami based sludge band Shroud Eater. She also runs Primitive Violence, an independent label focusing on releasing cassettes in limited edition packaging.
