    My Heavy Metal Story

    Ever since I was a little kid, I've loved music. I don't know why, but it's something that I've always been sort of obsessed with. When I was a really little kid (like 4-7) I listened to whatever my parents did, which was mostly classic rock and pop. My first introduction to...

    More Than Addicted

       It's like oxigen , canno't live without it. It gives me the energy to face all the problems, makes me stronger when I'm afraid.  I've been always scared of everything before I found out THAT. Metal music has completely changed my life. Don't laugh,I know it...

    Metalhead Since 2004

    I've listened to heavy metal since 2004 when I finished my freshmen year of High School.  In that case I'm probably more recent than a lot of other fans.  The first bands I got into were Metallica and AC/DC, thanks to Beavis and Butthead.  From there it led to Black Sabbath...

    How I Got Into Metal And Progressed.

    Pretty much up till junior high all I had heard was gospel music or classical stuff such as Beethoven or Mozart. That all changed back in 05 when I saw Thousand foot Krutch and Audio Adrenaline at YC with my church youth group. Im still a Christian even though I struggle...

    Heavy Metal: My Headbangers Journey.

    I no longer talk with my mother, but if there is one thing I must thank her for, it is her bringing me into the world of rock and metal. I was no older than two days old when I got my first taste of rock. Full blast in the car as I was being taken home from the hospital was Led...

    My Journey To Heavy Metal Music 2012

    I am very open-minded when it comes to music. All through the many years from my childhood to adult-age I listened to a variety of music, including pop, rock, classics and world music. Rock-wise, besides 'classic' rock, I liked ACDC, Alice Cooper, Gary Moore, Guns 'n Roses...

    Metal...

    Yeah I can relate. I've always thought metal was cool, for as long as I can remember and I started buying my own records at age 12 and haven't stopped. There's always that album you don't have, so you just keep collecting and collecting, though less frequently as you get older...

    I didnt realize this until

    but metal has been my drug and it has been for a while. Everyone handles their emotions differently ways to escape reality. Some people do drugs, hurt themselves and look for ways out of reality. For those who love metal would understand. For me its more than just music. Its...

    I, like many 'young' metal fans, was born too darn late. I'm just 23.There are... endless amounts of bands that I wish I could have seen and so many gigs that I wish I'd had the chance to go to. Pantera is the main one. Then, old school Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer etc gigs. I...
