    I think metal lovers feel their emotions more

    vividly and more robustly than most. How can one appreciate such intense sound without understanding the feeling that sound invokes? I hear something powerful and brutal, and it's familiar. That's how it sounds inside of me sometimes.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.
