A question for my lovely followers again!


Hey! ‘sme again! I have another question for you my dears! A lot of people are always interested in my interviews, reviews and playlists (thank you thank you thank you)! Some say that my reviews are on the short side, and some say that my reviews have the good length.

I prefer short-ish reviews, if a review takes more than 3 minutes for me to read I mostly ‘scan’ the most important parts of the review. Still, if there’s a need for longer reviews from me (more than 1000 words), and the need to go deeper into certain objects of the album, please let me know!

By the way, don’t forget to tune in to my show tomorrow on ISKC Rock Radio where you can catch my interview with Robin Wylie of 7sleepers (more information can be found here)!

A big hug from your roving reporter!

Iris, aka Ier!

PS: I made a new friend today! Isn’t my new friend cute?

UPDATE! It seems that someone (person/artist/band) shared this post today (March 15th) on Facebook (I think) because I get a lot of views on this post, which is amazing!

If you have time, please let me know who referred you to this post by posting a comment in the comment section or by sending me an email (grendelhq[at]gmail.com). 🙂 Thank you very much!

UPDATE 2! It looks like hundreds of people are reading this post but sadly nobody has answered my question in update 1. I would love to know who (could be anyone or anything) shared this post on March 15th so I can thank that person personally. Thank you! 🙂

So this was February 2016… (And I hope I will be back soon with a working PC… DARNIT!)


First of all: Apologies again! It seems like my computer is still suffering from technical problems, which means I can’t do much when it comes to writing, reviewing and all the other stuff I would like to do and need to do to keep my work flowing. I really hope that the problems will get solved soon! Anyway, let’s continue with some good news…
