After his participation in last year's Heavy Track panel, Gunnar Sauermann will give the bands at Buma ROCKS! his dead-honest opinion for a second time. Gunnar has studied iron age and early medieval archaeology as well as comparative linguistics in Marburg, Germany and took a degree in Celtic Studies in Dublin, Ireland. For more than sixteen years, he has been a freelance writer mainly for the German edition of Metal Hammer as well as others – and continues to do so.
