About our Authors

Nina Swint


Loyolacore PR

 I’m a promoter, tattoo collector, Chicago-lover, student, and writer. Some would consider me a feminist, I prefer to say I’m active in bringing light to situations of social injustice, especially sexism in the music scene. I like mermaids and cats and long walks on the beach in the middle of fall with hot chocolate. Hot Mulligan and Bonfires constantly on repeat. I just really like pop punk.

Bio coming soon.

Alex Sabatini


Loyolacore Tresurer

So as you can already see, my name is Alex. I was born in Chicago, but I grew in “The Region”. If you know what that is, then I’m sorry, but if you don’t know, look it up. I started playing music when I was ten years old, and I picked up my first guitar when I was fourteen. I’ve been listening to metal for most of my life, and I believe that it has quite literally saved my life. Things to know about me are that I am an ambivert and I want to be a therapist in the future because I am crazy passionate about helping people. Most importantly though, defend deathcore.
