Brian was never a musician, but loves metal music. He worked at the famous Blue Meannie Records in San Diego, and created the San Diego metal online forum sdmetal.org with his good friend Jared. After the closing of Blue Meannie Records, he wanted to create an atmosphere that was similar, and held the very first Metal Swap Meet in his driveway in 2009. A collaborative effort with Israel, the Metal Swap Meet is now an annual event, that is attended by metalheads from all over the western region.
Originally from Mexicali, Mexico Israel has been a fan of Metal since his early teens. A member of several local metal bands and also a organizer of the Metal Swap Meet since 2009.
Born and raised in San Diego, California, song writer and sound engineer Nocturnal Overlord has over 25 years of music, front of house, and recording experience, has played in many different bands and festivals around the world, and has worked with countless bands in the studio and as a live touring musician.
