    Not Your Normal Type Of Metalhead

    I grew up listening to a lot of the music from the 80's and early 90's. As a result, I got hooked on heavy metal music. The first time I actually heard heavy metal music, I was hooked. If I remember this correctly, Judas Priest served as my introduction into heavy metal. Since...

    Intro & Nod

    Hey All,      I've been listening to metal since a friend of mine from church loaned me a tape that was supposed to have a sermon on it.  It had maybe 5 minutes of the sermon, and then Metalica's And Justice for all for the rest.  I'm a total metal...

    Passionate Lover of Heavy Metal!

    What got me started with heavy metal is that I was very angry with a lot of things.  It helped me express my anger.  I started out with several groups but my favorite is Korn.  In fact, I am listening to Right Now by Korn.  It expresses true anger in it...

    Ok... I'm 14 and I have grown up listening to

    heavy metal, I find it funny when my teachers ask me what music I grew up listening to and they are shocked when I list bands like: Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie, Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold. And many more, they just look at me thinking I'm lying... It's rather funny.. :/

    No, my music choice isn't a phase,

    lol. Everyone's always so surprised when I tell them my favorite bands/songs. Honestly, I find metal and all its categories to be beautiful, in a way. If that makes sense.

    Dirty Deeds On A Friday Night Led Me Down The Allegedly Dark And Dangerous Path.

    I was 12 years old, living in the US, and had just seen a television show the previous weekend about Mafia informants on a news program. I was fascinated by the black lines placed over their faces to protect their identity. This began my fascination with Mob movies. That next...

    Progression

    I began listening to emo bands such as MCR, TBS, and Hawthorne Heights.  Then I started liking screamo bands such as Underoath and Drop Dead Gorgeous.  Soon enough it became a mix between metal and screamo, and then screaming was replaced with growling and my taste in...

    Heavy Metal Is Life To Me.

    I could not imagine a day that goes by without listening to a single heavy metal song. The lyrics and messages that are expressed though heart pounding guitar riffs, double beats and screaming vocals could never be out done in my book. Heavy Metal made me smarter, indepedent, and...

    Recently, I came across the Swedish heavy metal

    band Sabaton. I first heard of them while looking around on YouTube. What got my attention was the fact that their songs are based on various events and/or individuals related to various wars, including World War I and World War II. Those songs that weren't related to war, were...

    Thanks to Thrasher...

    I started getting interested in metal music when I was around ten years old. But I really had no way to be exposed to it. I first heard about Lamb Of God out of my Thrasher magazine I got for Christmas. Along with that, I got a 20 dollar gift card for Target. I happened to be...
