    Rock On

    so, I walked in to a local used CD store and asked the dude, about my age - if he had any Slipknot. He looks at me and says "you don't LOOK like someone who would listen to Slipknot". Since when did the way you "look" dictate what kind of music you...

    Litening To Metal With The Windows Down

    When I was younger I used to blast my metal wherever I went.  For some reason I thought, if only regular people could hear this... they wouldn't be able to resist listening to metal too.  I still like to blast metal in the car but now I turn it down when I get to stoplights and...

    Unhealthy Obsession, Filthy Addiction.

    My love, im an addict, in your sharp tongue i escape. To the sound of madness, in the shadow i decay. Jesus is in the radio, he is making fun of my t-shirt, and ability to speak, lips sewn together in a soul tie of reincarnation. Flashbacks and premonitions, everyone's energy...

    I Grew Up With It

    My parent's were really into 80's hair metal bands like WASP, Cinderella, Motley Crue, La Guns stuff like that and growing up I thought it was the coolest music ever I still think it is. Funny how what music you listen to as a little kid kinda sticks with you as you get older.

    I Can't Stand Anything Else

    I've tried to listen to other things, you know, just to expand a bit. I can't. If it's not metal, it gives me a headache and makes me want to die. There's no metal I don't love. Death metal, power metal, speed metal, black metal. Whatever, it's all good and there's nothing else...

    I grew up during the biggest wave of heavy

    metal music in the 80s and early 90s. Back when MTV's Headbangers Ball was still on the air. While I'm not completely sure which heavy metal singer/band I heard first, I do know that Judas Priest was one of the first ones I did hear, and I've been hooked ever since. Some of my...

    28 Years And Counting

    My first concert was in Iron Maiden in 1985. I was 15. I may be getting older but still love the genre. I'm 43 now and might be the 'token old guy' but I still venture into the pit for most shows. I have been going to shows for more years than some of the kids I see now...

    I'm playing all my songs instead of a playlist

    tonight. Got it on shuffle. Could be the next song is Molly Hatchett. Could be Marvin Gaye. Instead it was I Am The Law by Anthrax. Metal up the arse to get me through the last couple hours of work tonight.

    My First Concert

    My older brother took me to see Judas Priest at Madison Square Garden when I was thirteen years old. What a way to begin! Huge crowd all revved up, me not having a clue as to just how loud and fun it was going to be. Great White opened up (they sucked) and then it began. Great...

    I Like Metal But I Don't See Myself As A Metalhead

    I like metal music. I have albums by Megadeth, Mastodon, In Flames, Shadows Fall, Type O Negative, and several more. But, I tend to stay out of the metal community - not entirely, but for the most part. For one thing, metalheads tend to be a lot more intense and clique-ish than...

    10 Years Of Being A Metalhead

    I started to get into the metal genre at around the age of 13. Before that I was more into alternative rock. But when I was around 13, I got my hands on a bunch of Metallica CD's that my older brother didn't listen to much anymore. I had already heard their hit song "Enter...
