Liz Ramanand

Liz Ramanand has been a concert junkie and metal head since the ripe age of 9 years old.  Now that passion has turned into an obsession. While working for AOL's heavy metal unit Noisecreep.com as well as Roadrunner Records, she graduated with her Bachelor's degree in Journalism and English from  Brooklyn College.  She makes it her priority to attend at least four concerts a week any less would make her a very unhappy metal head.
