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.

Five Finger Death Punch Talk ShipRocked 2014 + Upcoming Touring Plans

Anyone on this year’s ShipRocked cruise knows that Five Finger Death Punch could have completely powered the boat themselves with a pair of electric performances.
