Do you remember the first time you heard extreme metal? what impression/effect did it have on you? how did you hear it etc.?

I was raised as a Jehovahs witness and read as a child about 'the dangers of death metal music' in particular I remember reading about a band called deicide and the song 'sacrificial suicide'-I was freaked out but curious. When I was around maybe 11/12 I managed to find the deicide tape in a second hand store. I was pretty scared but bought it. I hide it well in my room and as soon as both of my parents were out of the house, I put the tape in a pressed play. I was freaking out the whole time but when the vocals came in It scared the shit out of me-I'd never heard vocals like that before. I took it out and threw it away, fuckin pretty scared-due to being taught /indoctrinated since birth to really fear the occult and 'demonic' things. Looking back it's a really funny thing.

I can still recall the exact feeling (fear) that came over me as I first heard it. What's your story?

my dad (who's a music teacher) brought home some ROCK-encyclopedia CD-ROM when i was 7 or 8.
there was a narrative sequence about the sub-genres of HEAVY METAL
when it came about DEATH METAL, a pic of Obituary popped up (the old one where they are on a field in front of a leaf-less tree) and a short clip of "TILL DEATH" played

the whole thing was so unbelievably cool!

I grew up with bands like AC/DC,Black Sabbath,Deep Purple,Led Zepplin etc.,because my father was and still is a fan of those groups and their music. That was around 1993/1994 and I got more and more into Heavy Metal,then Thrash Metal and so on. It was a kind of development. And I still listen to all those bands today and really enjoy them. I think,I'll never get bored by those bands and their music. Smile

I don't know about "first" time, but I remember being intrigued and horrified by Cannibal Corpse when I was young. Actually, Tomb of the Mutilated and The Bleeding were two of my first cassette buys.

Listening to a Swiss radio broadcast (DRS3 Rock Special each Wednesday night 10pm-12pm) with lots of Metal and even some few Thrash/Death Metal and to some strange Death/Grind stuff on German Bayern2 on Monday 5pm-6pm was a nice introduction to this. Listening to Judas Priest's Painkiller with headphones lying in bed in the DRS3 Rock Special with the age of 15 made it for me to escape from the typical Scorpions/Helloween/Manowar stuff.

John Peel's festive 50 in 1988. He played sessions by Napalm Death and Bolt Thrower in one show. I had already progressed my listening onto Metallica, Megadeth etc. but hearing this was something else. Not looked back since thne really

hard to say. I've got three different stories. at 14 I had been listening to Metallica for a bit, Megadeth, Pantera and newer Sepultura (BtR, Arise, Chaos). at some point I bought Morbid Visions/Bestial Devastation and didn't understand it. it felt blunt and impossible. edit. I remember playing it for a friend and his reaction was "do you really LIKE this?" and to be fair I didn't at the time, though I tried. I also remember thinking that the Bestial Devastations cover and band pic on the back were the coolest thing ever



a bit later I had started watching this metal show that was on TV late in the evening. there I saw the Blashyrk video and I was enchanted by axe wielding demons in the snow and the whole epicness of it. next day I went and bought Battles and Nagelfar - Hünengrab im Herbst because the cover intrigued me. I was floored by that album, still am. after that I think I bought Hvis Lyset Tar Oss.

I'm not sure how this lines up with the second story, but at some point around then I had gotten this idea that I might like really ugly extreme music, so one evening this "death metal" band was playing at a local club. I remember convincing a friend to come along (and drive me, he had a moped that could fit two people) and I remember standing there, pummeled by the chaos, bobbing my head, totally immersed. the last song they played their "hit" at the time and the whole venue was filled with smoke, red light, rotating heads, hair flying and fucking war machines on stage. I bought their demo afterwards and couldn't stop smiling. I think my friend on the other hand found out that night that the extreme end of rock wasn't for him. this was the song

around 1989 a friend of mine had "reign in blood". it sounded pretty good, but at the time i didn't pursue it. i was into the punk aesthetic and thought all heavy metal was for wusses. so, even though "reign in blood" was really fast and aggressive, it just wasn't enough for me to breach my prejudice.

later that year i was at somebody's house and they might have been playing a vinyl copy of "symphonies of sickness". it just sounded stupid to me, which it still does, but i was impressed by the cover art.

the turning point for me was when a friend played me "legion" by deicide in 1993. i got that instantly and started buying all the extreme metal i could out of the budget bins. at the time, nobody gave a shit about death metal in chicago and you could snatch up cds for a dollar. if i still had all the cds and vinyl i bought in the '90s, my collection would be worth a ton, but i sold most of it in the early 2000s to pay my rent as a starving musician.

when I was about 12, I had heard a bit about black metal and was at a music shop where I could listen to CDs. So I picked out In the Nightside Eclipse and listened to it in the shop. I remember thinking it sounded just like church choir music with some screaming over it, I was just kind of confused. I didn't buy the CD. Coincidentally now ItNsE is my favorite BM album.

first experiences in "extreme" music would have to be when I was around 9 or so, I would always slip out to my dads garage to borrow tapes to play in my room. he happened to have CC- Eaten Back to Life in his collection. cover intrigued me, so I gave it a spin. definitely did not know what to think of it and was almost spooked my young mind. I imagined these musicians to be like massive demonic type figures (maybe like a more sinister gwar or something) very funny how untrue that turned out to be, and this was probably only a year prior too ace ventura coming out (which I NEVER noticed that part in the movie for some reason, even though I watched at least a dozen times in theater)

also had a friend that had morbid angel- covenant tape as well and I recall that giving me weird feelings around age 10 as well. those tapes pretty much paved the way for me getting into metal though. although slightly less extreme at first. hahaha. slayer was something I was always familiar with at a young age too as it seemed like they were playing stuff from Seasons of the Abyss and other things like this on a late night metal show my dad would often be playing in the garage

I heard Severed Survival and thought it was the most dark, morbid and sick sounding thing I had ever heard and I became completely immersed in the atmosphere. I thought Slayer were the most extreme thing musically that had ever been invented at that point. Then Autopsy just blew that conception away.

Speed Kills -compilation serie on Under One Flag gave a great introduction for me on extreme metal. Especially volume III with Bathory, Death, Dark Angel along with more punky stuff by English Dogs. The sound of Bathory's "Of Doom..." just drilled through my brain, extreme metal indeed! Speaking of more underground-related bands, compilation tapes like Morbid Noise, Apocalyptic Things, Hymns of the Dead a.s.o. showed me the way to the realms of death, thrash and black metal.

"This is not as extreme as I thought it would be. Where's the white noise?"

True story. I was listening to Possessed.

I think it was Pantera and Terrorizer magazine which paved the way for me. I liked thrash at the time and thought Cowboys From Hell was cool, as well as Slayer's South of Heaven. Anyway heard Far Beyond Driven and, though I don't listen to it anymore, it opened the doors to something more extreme. I will also mention that Sepultura's 'Bestial Devastation/Morbid Visions' album and 'Scream Bloody Gore' also left quite an impression on my young mind, and I soaked up the dark atmosphere of it as soon as I heard it.

As for Terrorizer magazine, when I saw that I was still only listening to Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Metallica and for my young mind, in the adverts I saw a reissue for Autopsy 'Severed Survival' and seeing other album covers (can't remember which ones but the gore and violence of it left a massive impression) and being in my early teens, the music seemed almost DANGEROUS to me and the imagery burned into my mind. I also saw a local paper talking about Mayhem, the incident where that fan got hit by a pig's head, read Lords of Chaos and as time went on, I became more interested in extreme sounds.

It doesn't seem quite as 'dangerous' to me now of course, but back then it just seemed like a passage into something depraved and it was a fuckload better than the crap most of my peers were listening to at school.

+1 on Far Beyond Driven, that record opened a lot of doors for me, and in my opinion it's the only really great Pantera record.
