    I miss it so much!! Slipping into a black tube

    top, a studded dog collar and some knee high boots and blood red lipstick...walking thru the crowd and pretending not to see their heads turning. That driving, pulsating beat pulling me into the stadium. Guitar screaming, floor vibrating, a sea of hot, lithe shirtless male...

    At first I was lost in all the genres of music.

    Listened to everything without liking something that much. But then a friend gave me a lift home with his car and he was listening to In Flames. I loved that music and asked for the band and then bought the album. Nowadays I have evety album. I am still new to metal but I have...

    They say that what a person does in private is

    a reflection of their true character. I grew up on a farm so my family listens to a lot of country. My girl listens to more modern top 40. Now, as a professional businessman I usually let my friends, family, and coworkers pick out what we listen to in the the car. But when I...

    I'm getting old but I miss the days of playing

    in metal bands. I've been influenced by Faith No More, NIN, Tool, Deftones to more recently by bands like Killswitch Engage, Parkway Drive, and Every Time I Die. Any new bands I should check out?

    I see comments almost everywhere

    that Metallica is overrated. I think yeah some sort, posers choose Metallica as their favorite.But that does not mean they are not a legend. I think people should stop smearing, especially to big 4.

    When I was 15, I found an identity in metal

    that I never had before. I don't mean in terms of how other people saw me, but in terms of how I saw myself. I began to get more comfortable in my own skin. To look how I wanted to, to speak how I wanted to. I also found myself hearing music I'd never considered existed, from...

    I'm picky about music.

    My favorite metal bands are Fear Factory, Tool, and Mastodon. I've been fortunate enough to see each of them live once.

    I've come to realize

    that most of AC/DC's songs have a very upbeat, positive sound. Makes you want to go out and live. I mean REALLY live. Achieve tremendous goals, take on impossible odds. Look at your downfalls and say, "**** don't faze me."

    I love all varieties of metal,

    which really confuses my mother. On an oldie's metal day, I am getting on her good side. On a christian metal day, I am covering evidence. On a heavy metal day, I am depressed. On a metalcore day, I worship Satan. Her reactions and lectures are quite amusing considering none of...

    I like a mix of death metal,

    nu metal, and metalcore. Mostly Arch Enemy, The Agonist, Light This City, Dark Tranquility, and I'm just getting into Children of Bodom. Other bands I like but wouldn't consider full on metal r Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace. Yay! :D
