I Love Heavy Metal Music

    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'm really not sure what some of my music falls

    under. To me, it's all just music. I do believe that the majority falls somewhere in the rock and metal spectrums. Like Judas Priest, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, and Avenged Sevenfold. I think they are all heavy metal, but I could be wrong. Whatever they are, I love them.

    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...

    Having been in a metal band throughout my teens

    and early 20's I was always told I'd grow out of metal. I'm approaching 30 and that's still not happened. Now, I've never dressed in "mosher" clothes and still like smart casual but when working out/training, driving or home I'll have metal on. I enjoy the aggression, 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!

    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.

    I want to put together a playlist

    for the holidays. What are some good seasonal heavy metal/hard rock/classic rock songs I can use to celebrate the month of December with? King Diamond's "No Presents for Xmas" is starting things off.

    Always have; always will.

    I don't enforce it on anyone else, but metal represents a fan base unlike any other. True family. Anyone who has ever been to a heavy metal or rock concert can truly identify.

    Black Veil Brides, Pierce The Veil,

    Sleeping With Sirens, Of Mice & Men etc are not "Heavy metal" music, lol. They are more like post-hardcore. HEAVY metal bands are; Avenged Sevenfold, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Metallica, System of a Down, Godsmack, Judas Priest, Lamb Of God, Slayer, Slipknot & Trivium... Stupid...
