    Not Who You'd Expect

    It's funny. The reaction I get from people when I tell them I love heavy metal music. It kind of reveals how stereotypical people can be. I should know. Being a 15 year old, African-American/Irish/Puerto Rican/ every other ethnicity my family could think of, Baptist raised and...

    I first heard of heavy metal music

    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 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...

    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!

    How I Became A Metalhead

    A long time ago, I helped my mother with her cleaning business. I was in 8th grade when I started to help her out. I'd help her during my summer vacation. For people who have never done it, cleaning is back breaking work. Since I was in 8th grade and never worked before, I would...

    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.

    Gosh, I Love Metal.

    I love heavy metal so much. Heavy metal has so much variation in sound and lyrical content. Metal is filled with the most talented instrumentalists in modern music. Its lyrics are brilliant and often very though provoking. Metal is so anti-pop-culture. It truly is thinking...
