Geoff Teach




From the nethermost depths of Chicago’s strong metal community comes Geoff Teach, a journalist with not only deep roots in his hometown, but also an ironclad international reputation. 

Geoff started out his writing career with the well-respected webzine, Rock in Chicago, as the resident metal journalist in 2012, and about a year later, he felt the need to branch out and cover acts from all over the world, so he started his own website from the ground up, Teach’s Criterion of Metal. 

But after having to scuttle his beloved website in late 2016 due to financial complications, Geoff is now making a triumphant return on the world of metal journalism. 

Having already interviewed or reviewed well over a hundred acts in his five-year career – and hearing or witnessing hundreds more – Geoff’s formidable stature as a journalist and ready-made wealth of contacts around the world is a welcomed addition to the Bloodrock Media team!
