    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.

    A New Level Of Confidence And Power

    I believe metal is essential to my existence. It motivates me and empowers me when I feel powerless. In the famous words of Pantera, it provides "a new level of confidence and power." It helps me to vent my frustrations when all I see is red, and I feel like I might just snap...

    ........and She Came To Me With A Serpents' Kiss

    Revelations by Iron Maiden is my all time favorite heavy metal 80's song.  I can still picture my husband at age 15 singing the words to me.

    Keeps Me Motivated

    Listning to heavy metal is awsome when doing stuff like cleaning or decorating, it helps to keep me going and rather than taking breaks randomly I decide that I will work through a whole cd and stuff gets done so much more quickly.

    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...

    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...

    Heavy Metal music seems always to be playing in my car. I love the beat, the guitar solo's, the "bad boy" image. I feel great when I am listening to Iron Maiden, Metallica or Megadeath. It seems to speak to me. I just feel at home.
