"Music's what I need to keep my sanity."

Nikhail is a dreadlocked fellow who likes his music heavy. Raised on the 90's rock scene, his favorite bands growing up were acts like System Of A Down, Rage Against The Machine, and Korn, and it only got louder from there. Now he enjoys immersing himself in all genres, from metal and hardcore, to ska, hip-hop, reggae, deathcore, pop-punk, indie, and everything in between. However, his most cherished artist will always be 311.

If you ask him, nothing is better than live music, so you can usually catch him at a show somewhere in Florida. But be sure to check in the pit, because that's where all the fun (and breathable air) is. In his free time, he enjoys playing the drums, reading up on science and other current events, yelling at his PlayStation like Jake Luhrs, and supporting his native Minnesota sports teams. He'll never give up his love of soda, energy drinks, or coffee because caffeine is important, and also because his initials are literally eNeRGy.

Graduating from Florida State University as an Editing, Writing, and Media major, Nikhail currently resides in the Daytona Beach area. He absolutely loves meeting and talking to new people, so feel free to contact him through email or twitter!

5 current bands he finds incredibly underrated? '68, Angel Du$t, Such Gold, Night Verses, and Palm Reader.
