    Thunder

    music in general takes you away. you get lost int the lyrics, the guitar thunder, the rhythm of a steady drum. metal takes you a different place. it is this escape like nothing else. it can help you rise above all the sh*t. it basically says **** it all and get over it. which, in...

    I Can't Stop And Won't... EVER!!

    When I listen to some good metal it just puts me in the mood, I feel like I'm on top of the world and nothing else matters. Miss May I, We Came as Romans, Bring Me the Horizon. Whenever I feel down I listen to some metal and scream my problems away.

    I Traveled 17 Hours For A Single Concert.

    I am obsessed with heavy metal, more of the underground music really than anything else; and more so, mostly Scandinavian bands. It lets something on the "outside" match the fast-paced(ness) on the "inside" for one. I am always thinking about new ideas, writing, theories...

    Metal Is Part Of Us

    I was raised on Heavy Metal thanks to my mum, she would let us listen to proper music when we where young so Metallica, Motorhead, Black Sabbath and Dio would be on repeat. Metal became a part of me from that point and it just amazes me to see what metal has become from is humble...

    Judas Priest Is My Drug Of Choice

    Seriously. I'll never get enough Priest. Rob Halford's voice is heavenly. Tipton and Downing are guitar soul mates. I'll jam out to them until the day I die.

    My Love Life With Metal/Rock Music Is The Best Relationship I've Ever Had!

    I suppose I've been brought up with soft rock/middle of the road rock/classic rock due to my dad with Queen, Dire Straits, Springsteen and Billy Joel, etc. But my own love affair started when I was 12/13. I first properly got into Michael Jackson when he was doing the Slash/Van...

    Alright!

    Found my old Ipod and played it during my work out tonight. It was loaded with old Nugent, Van Halen, Iron Maiden, AC/DC and Motorhead! Stuff I haven't listened to in years. Great stuff!

    Metal Meltdown

    At the beginning, there was jazz. As I was raised by my grandparents, I grew up with this type of music, the swinging type, old people's dance music. No place for Rock N Roll, Blues or Heavy Metal, just the catchiness of horns and various gospels in church. At this time of my...

    Tired Of Forcible Christian Haters

    I'm tired of sociopathic Christians saying "Metal is the devils music" or "Rock n Roll will damn you to hell". To all you idiots who believe this, maybe if you'd take ten seconds to listen to the frigging lyrics, you'd see metal isn't all blood-drawing and brain bashing. Half the...

    I Grew Up In The 80'S

    I grew up listening to Iron Maiden, Metallica, Helloween, Anthrax; all that wonderful heavy metal music from when metal was born. It has influenced me a lot and these last years I have been fortunate enough to play in a band that plays music inspired by that era. I feel lucky!

    when I was 9 years old. I have no idea what the very first song I heard was, but I do know that I've been hooked ever since. Some of my favorites include Judas Priest, Disturbed, and Iron Maiden to name a few. But within the last few years, I've also gotten into some of the...

    My Journey To Heavy Metal

    I grew up with very little exposure to music beyond what my parents listened to. My dad listens to country "music" and my mom loves '80's rock, so that's mostly what I listened to, more from habit than from actual enjoyment. When I was in my first year of High School, I heard...

    Gosh, I Love Metal.
