    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...

    I listen to heavy metal

    and rock because the lyrics are so much deeper and meaningful than pop will ever be.

    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...

    Heaven And Hell

    I first discovered heavy metal music back in the 80s when I was a teenager. I've been a fan since then and have been to numerous concerts. The latest was Black Sabbath in September of this year. I've seen them at least three times and was lucky enough to see them when Ronnie...

    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...

    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...

    Love it. But not the thrash metal (unless it's

    a distinct and even beat and/or tune to it. Generally, the faster it is, the more it invigorates the soul. Frenetic rock is king!!

    Turn Your Back And Run" I'm growing partial to

    detesting a disease in me. It's head swells into beautiful. Dependency. With teeth that feed on flesh and everything. I swear I am not. A small price to bleed and give you everything that you want. Dancing with the spirit, giving heart to pump a dirty vein. Leaving with a scar...

    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...
