Matt Ketchum left his hometown of Pittsburgh and arrived on the shores of Japan in the fall of 2009. He quickly formed a short-lived metal project before the Tohoku earthquake changed his life forever. After assisting in frontline relief efforts he was transferred to Tokyo where he became involved in various projects concerned with Tohoku, including a crowd-sourced photography initiative aimed at raising funds, and a media distribution platform. Before becoming a founding member of Retch and starting the now-defunct event production group Blood Rite, showcasing bands from Japan's extreme music underground, he was the guitarist for Tokyo black metal band Darkcorpse. At the moment, he's back in Pittsburgh working at getting Kaala off the ground there - international metalheads unite!
