About Dangerdog
Craig and Lily The Little Black Dog

Created in the fall of 2006 by Craig Hartranft, Dangerdog Music Reviews is an international music review blog, offering reviews of melodic heavy metal and hard rock, progressive metal, progressive rock, AOL and their various sub-genres. The key word is melodic. If, for instance, you're interested in hardcore or extreme metal, you've come to the wrong place.

Craig's love of melodic hard rock and metal dates back the late 60's and early 70's, and also includes classic Motown and Philadelphia blue-eyed soul. But you may be surprised to know that his favorite music is actually classical music. Craig lives in a house with his wife Debi and Lily, The Little Black Dog.
