Itchymenace grew up in an era of Michael Jackson and Madonna. It was a confusing time where he felt out of place until a friend gave him a cassette copy of Ozzy Osbourne's Tribute album. Fate was changed and Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden were soon added to the mix. These days he still loves the classics, especially Motorhead but appreciates so much great new music like the new wave of thrash and much of the American Black Metal. He may be the only Yankee in this group.
