C. Hayes

I’m a freelance writer and radio producer living in New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington. Aside from infrequently updating this blog, I’m a former contributing editor, feature writer, reviewer, and metal columnist for US-based website PopMatters, a contributing writer for Last Rites, Metal Bandcamp, Backlit, and Hellbound, and my work has also featured on sites such as Ghost Cult and About Heavy Metal, as well as in numerous New Zealand magazines. Outside of writing, I’m the metal correspondent for Music 101, the long-running weekly music show produced by New Zealand’s public broadcaster, Radio New Zealand. I’m partial to metal in all its guises, and also extremely fond of Krautrock, progressive rock, experimental music, ‘70s dub, any film featuring a shark, and a nice cup of tea.
