Nuclear Blast

Born in France but raised on the island of Cyprus, Nick has been involved with the music industry for the past 8 years. Having had jobs in different labels that covered everything from heavy metal to electro/dance, and a degree in jazz music, his first steps in the industry were in journalism. With the creation of his own website, Nick interviewed bands and created original video content that reached thousands of fans. He is currently the UK Promotions Manager at Nuclear Blast Records, the largest independent heavy metal record label in the world. He has worked on album campaigns for bands such as Slayer, Anthrax, Nightwish, Lamb of God, Machine Head, Opeth and Meshuggah.

“I am very honoured to be a part of the Heavy Music Awards’ first edition. It’s inspiring to have an initiative such as this one, which aims to celebrate the best in metal and rock music, regardless of whether it’s on stage or off stage. It not only benefits the bands and the industry, but most of all it benefits the fans, giving them a loud voice within the scene that they’ve created and sustained for so many decades.”
