    Metal Haven

    I've been a fan of metal for about five years. I got into the genre when i was in 8th grade and didn't look back. I love metal especially when i'm mad or sad because it can go with either. It's something that's saved me from the darkest points in my life. And, i think it will...

    Metal Girl

    What is there to say?  I love heavy metal.  I often run across someone who is surprised to hear it.  There seems to be an assumption that girls aren't all that into metal - especially if a girl is a brainy, businesslike professional.  And when they find out...

    The Devil Horns Stand For Quality

     While heavy metal as a genre has it's fair share of clunkers, it's a whole lot less trend driven and vacuous than a lot of other genres.

    Metal Is Better

     I was a late comer to metal, i had always been a classical music buff, weird eh.  It began with Iron maiden and Metallica, with a bit of Black Sabbath thrown in(though they're not really heavy enough to be real metal - MY OPINION ONLY!!) But, recently thanks to the...

    The Best Music

    When people look at me they don't think that I'd be into metal, but the majority of the music that I listen to is metal. I usually like most of the metal that I hear so I'm pretty easy to please.

    I Love Metal!

    I am a total metal nut! There is nothing that I enjoy more than cranking up my computer speakers (Klipsch THX certified) and just letting the raw power and energy of the music run wild! I am very old school in my tastes, I grew up listening to the likes of Metallica, Slayer...

    I Confess...

    First off, I could have sworn I was in this group all ready. Hmm. Well, Metal never lets you down, ever! Even when you hear something that may not be your brand of Vodka, all that means is you can compare notes on what it is. There are songs about every topic, played in every way...

    I Don't Have Favourite Band..

    And I also don't know a lot of bands, because normally I just listen to heavy metal when I'm quite angry.. and that doesn't happen that often. Maybe I should listen to it more often, because I begin to really like it.

    As Far As Heavy Metal Goes..

    I've been a fan of Heavy Metal more or less since the first Godsmack album came out. Now, while I certainly don't consider them Metal by my standards today - I do have to acknowledge that without them I wouldn't be a fan of bands like Shadows Fall, Killswitch Engage, Soilwork...

    Metal..

    I've loved metal for a long time, mostly due to my father. He listened to metal as I was growing up and I came to love it. As I got older I started listening to some newer metal rather than the older metal my dad listened to. Now, I appreciate both older and newer metal, and...

    I sure am! I can tolerate almost any kind of rock, and well, I say this is part rock, and if it wasn't, well, I'd definantly like it anyways! Even if some people say it's hard to understand what they say, I don't care, because for me, I can sure understand what they say.
