About  

Having studied the mechanisms of Public Relations in university as well as the lovely obscurity of underground metal music in his mind, Lukas adds a well-important part of nichey expertise to the team. Promotion concepts and new marketing ideas flow better whilst blasting black metal through your headphones – trust him, he tested it. In case his mind ain’t somewhere between his work desk or his impressive digital archive of music throughout any genres, Lukas enjoys the highs and lows of table-tennis, long walks and laid-back gaming sessions.

After getting into Modern Rock, 2000s Indie and 80s music as well, her frequent attendance at concerts and festivals across the country has only been a logical consequence of her passion for music.
