Meet the hosts


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 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.
