Pete (aka The Advocate)
 

 

Greetings!  If you are coming to this page, either your a fanatic (like myself and have read everything on this site) or are simply bored.  Well then, allow me to tell you a little bit about myself.  My name is Pete Tucker, I was born in 1976 and have been a devoted heavy metal fan since 1989.  Early favorites included Iron Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and the like.  By 1991, I was looking for darker pastures and through magazines, friends and trades, I became a follower of the metal underground including bands like Death, Morbid Angel, Napalm Death, Sepultura, Entombed, Carcass, and the list goes on into infinity.  It wasn't until 1997 that I really discovered the whole black metal scene, of course, became obsessed with that.  I didn't realize it until later that I had been searching for this type of music for a while....the perfect "Halloween" soundtrack, if you will as I had always loved halloween horror soundtracks (the kind you might play in a window on Halloween) since I was a kid.  

 

As I have grown older, I've really embraced any kind of music for the most part from stuff I was raised on (70's Rock, Country, 80's Rock) to things I discovered on my own (Metal, Synthwave, Folk, Fantasy Soundtracks, Dark Ambient, Horror Soundtracks).  I am an avid collector of vinyl, especially old rock, early thrash and black metal.

From 1993 - 2011, I also tried my hand at making music with my brother and various friends.  The results were varied, from the somewhat interesting to laughably stupid.  My favroite band of this period was Stygian, but I also participated in other bands such as DescensionIsolated Fields and Watching The Coroner.  By 2011, I was diagnosed with tendonitis and making music no longer became a priority for me.  That's around the time Proscriptor contacted me about creating a new ABSU website.  This way, I felt I was able to be connected to the music scene but without making music.  Interestingly enough, this opportunity also gave me a chance to consult with other bands on their web presence including ZemialBlood Storm and Nocturnus A.D. After Death.  

 

When not obsessing about music and vinyl collections, I also study severe weather and historical storms.  I am involved with my home town's Emergency Management team and do storm spotting, emergency ham radio communications, storm damage surveys and disaster mitigation/preparation.  I also enjoy cooking, watching baseball, football and hockey, visiting abandoned places, true stories of paranormal/unexplained phenomena (or even a good creepypasta) and just being a dork, as my wife tells me.

You can find me on Facebook.

Addemdum: I will continue to keep this site up as an archive now that ABSU has disbanded.
