About the author

Hi, it's me the owner of this website, Gabriel Borg. Most of you probably know me by my Youtube username Grindcoreisgod. I'd like to use this page in order to tell you guys a little about myself. I'm 18 and a student. I am currently studying Medicine and Surgery at University. My hobbies include the history of Gas Masks and Chemical Warfare (obviously) and drumming. I live in Malta, an archipelago of islands located south of Sicily. I have decided to put my masks online as I believe it be easier to have all the easily changeable information on a website rather than in videos. However, fear not! I am not going to stop posting videos on my main channel! Anyway, that's enough information about me, check out the collection!
