The band that got you into extreme metal? for me it was Morbid angel, Id been listening to faith no more and rage against the machine etc but I had a cousin who was older and he played me Domination I remember I'd never heard somthing as heavy and hooky as "where the slime live".

I'll just go ahead and say Metallica back in 1984. Whether or not that's extreme metal or not, I'll let you cats debate that to no end.

Same band but 2 years later in the high-school!

Bathory "S/t"
Celtic Frost "Morbid Tales/Emperor's Return"
Mercyful Fate "Melissa" & "Don't Break the oath"
Venom "Black Metal" & "Welcome to Hell"
Destruction "Infernal Overkill/Sentence of Death"

All in the same day. I can't recall which was exactly first so I listed all of the bands that the person who exposed me to Black Metal had me listen to and that I became interested in.

Bathory's Requiem was the first extreme metal album I heard. I stole (ok, "borrowed" without telling anyone, intending to return it but I lost it then) the tape from my dad's workplace along with some Iron Maiden, Metallica's Black Album and a local RAC tape. Must have been around 9-10.

Rediscovered the tapes I hadn't returned when I was 15. I still like Requiem. Embarassed

I'd like to say that it was the early metal bands that I listened to on the radio in the early 90's, such as Black Sabbath and Judas Priest, but when I actually started buying music is was mostly shitty nu metal (and the black album). A friend of mine gave me some Fear Factory and Entombed mp3s while I was helping him build an addition onto his house, and that sent me in a better direction.

Black Sabbath to AC/DC to Motley Crue to Iron Maiden to Metallica to Megadeth to Emperor (The Century Media Black labels bands mainly) and Cradle of Filth... from there everything else flooded in. (pre-internet)
Those days sure made the music you found and appreaciated... appreaciated a lot more in retrospect. Twisted Evil

Just curious. Do you still like Cradle Of Filth? Wondering since there are so few who do.

There are songs I like more so than albums say. Whenever they release a new album these days I do download it and give a listen. I don't buy them anymore, can't say I like them much now honestly. I will however play Damnation and Day from end to end, really like that album... that one and Cruelty and the Beast. Everything else I wouldn't miss or wouldn't have mattered if I never heard them.

So I guess, yea. I like them... Wink

Cool thread. My friend's older brother let me borrow Death - "Fate" at an impressionable age. Shortly after was Seven Churches.

For black metal it was Burzum s/t and Transylvanian Hunger. Cliche, but that's when it clicked for me.

Honorable mention to the first few DRI records for being the fastest music I'd heard when I heard it.

Metal: Metallica.

Extreme metal: Dimmu Borgir, particularly Stormblåst.

I don't listen to either now, by the way. Razz

No idea. But I suppose moving to more extreme from Kiss, Twisted sister and Metallica happened with Destruction 'release from agony' and Bathory 'under the sign of the black mark'. I remember I was hanging out with my superpoor cassette player and playing those to neighborhood grannies when I was 13-14yo. Then there was of course Slayer and alikes. Further it went in 1990 with Napalm Death and Carcass and Morbid Angel.
