About Us

Our main contributor is a Dutch corporate lawyer with a PhD, who was infected with the melodic hard rock virus at early age. The next decades he absorbed not only extreme quantities of music, but also read everything about it he could lay his hands on. Convinced never to earn a proper income as a rock journalist, our man got educated and trained as policy analyst and lawyer. He specialised in digesting large amounts of unorganized information, bringing it down to the relevant core and explaining it in a way everybody could easily understand. In 1996 he started writing about melodic hard rock in magazines and encyclopedias in his spare time.

But who we are isn’t really that important. Content is king.

We’re chronicling AOR & Melodic Hard Rock from the past and for the future.

We try to replicate no information that’s already available elsewhere. The content on this website is concise and links to other relevant websites for useful background information. Therefore it’s also dynamic: it will be amended as soon as new insights make it necessary.
