Around '95, whilst rummaging in the attic, I found some Black Sabbath tapes of my dad's which I loved. I'd always loved the heavier/earlier stuff by Queen, so I just carried on hunting out other early heavy metal and hard rock stuff like Deep Purple, Rainbow, AC/DC etc. Then I met the only other metal fan in my school who introduced me to Iron Maiden and Slayer, I had a brief flirtation with Korn (shame I know, but I guess I'm of that generation) and then I discovered Cannibal Corpse and Napalm Death, probably around 97. Haven't looked back since then!

Fell in love with Guns N' Roses and Metallica, along with all the glam shit in the late 80s. A friend of mine gave me a mixed tape around 1993 with Morbid Angel, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden and some more on it. He did not want it because it was too heavy. Not sure where he got it from. Around this time I also remember buying a special edition magazine supplement (to Metal Edge or Hit Parader) called "DEATH METAL" that featured lots of underground bands of the time. After that brief introduction to metal I got into punk rock (courtesy of die hard skateboarding) and then hardcore and then when I was 15 or so I got back into metal.

Discovered black metal around that time when I was 16 or so (ten years ago), the first black metal shit I ever bought was Nokturnal Mortum's "To the Gates of Blasphemous Fire." Still a favorite for nostalgic reasons. Got into Judas Iscariot and all the pre-requisite Scandinavian bands etc... I also went to tons of death metal shows around this time in Florida.

Over the years I have made rounds being interested in most areas and genre's of metal, but I always tend to stick with bands and movements that are under the radar. I am from an area where real metal is not prevalent so I tend to keep to myself. I do not like popular things and bands. I think it all becomes watered down and generic the second it becomes highly recognized.

i guess my true introduction would have been at around 17 when i discovered a very used copy of the old relapse records comp. 'corporate death'...general surgery, incantation, disrupt, disembowelment, phobia, repulsion - amazing!...i was into hardcore punk and whatnot before all that, but this is probably the one album that left the most lasting impression, and i still like all those bands...

Metallica, Guns N' Roses, Megadeth, Mtley Cre, Anthrax, Iron Maiden, Ozzy, Black Sabbath, etc. were the start of it. The kid who lived next door would make me mix tapes, but all these bands were big at the time and all over the place. I was born in '82 and I got into Metal after "...And Justice For All". I had to be really young.

I don't think I heard of Slayer until 6th or 7th Grade, which was later. From there it was Venom, Mercyful Fate/King Diamond, Deicide and lots of Death Metal, then eventually Black Metal. As time went on, I of course began to dig deeper into the past and tastes naturally developed.

I can remember standing at the "import" section (remember those?) of my local record store staring at "Welcome to Hell" and actually being SCARED of the fucking thing... those were the days...

As fate had it, I met him (the guy who got me into metal, duh) on the very first day of my engineering college (I was around 14-15 that time) which is on the outskirts of my huge city, far away from where I reside. This, my friends, was a college that had mentioned somewhere in its submission form that T-shirts weren't allowed amongst other such wannabe disciplinarian rules. Of course it seemed way too ridiculous and I laughed heartily.

So on the momentous first day of my college, like a stud that I am, I went wearing a Playboy tee (non-offensive I would like to believe). Before the class introduction even began, I was singled out by the principal who then escorted me by my arm to the entrance of the college building and from there on I was escorted by the peon to the gate. I was admiring the special undivided attention that I getting until I suddenly realised that I was being kicked out of the college.

Outside the towering college gates, there was a lone tea-shop and in front of that tea-shop was a bench. Only one guy was sitting on that bench. He was wearing a Mustang car tee and was smirking at me. He turned out to be my classmate and also the guy who would later get me into metal with Metallica's 'Master of Puppets' tape.

I listened to a bunch of shit til I was 14. Then got into some of the more well known Black/Death/Thrash bands like Immortal, Emperor, Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, Kreator, Sodom, Destruction...around then I listened to a lot of Oi/Crust/Grind too...so it was a big mix of stuff at once...Never looked back and just keep on searching for more and more killer shit to listen to. 22 now...so I'm glad I got into this stuff when I did.

I started out listening to industrial rock and shit like that, with some Motorhead and Metallica between the age of 10 and 13, but it was only when I was around 13/14 when I started going more into metal after discovering Machine Head. I went from Machine Head to Sepultura and then onto some of the more mainstream classic death metal and grindcore bands (Morbid Angel, Deicide, Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death), more modern extreme metal bands (Pig Destroyer, Necrophagist, Dying Fetus, The Berzerker) and also Slayer, Pantera and the like. I got into black metal proper on my 15th birthday, with Darkthrone and Mayhem. A few months later, I heard some song by Sadogoat somewhere and so tried to find out where I could get some of their material by emailing Seventh Blasphemer, who told me to order from this one Norwegian distro (Glorify Death). And then over the next few months, I ended up being introduced to Bestial Warlust, Sarcofago, Profanatica, Goat Penis, Anal Vomit, Conqueror, Black Witchery, Revenge, Beherit, Archgoat and Bathory due to Seventh Blasphemer, all before my 16th birthday. At the moment I am 17, but will be 18 in September.

I've always liked Black Sabbath, ever since middle school when I used to smoke dope at a friend's house before class and blast the "Paranoid" album. As far as getting further into metal I am a definite late bloomer. I was always interested in metal, and aware of bigger names in the metal scene but I was really into punk and hardcore for years, tape trading, playing in bands, setting up shows, etc. so that took up most of my musical energy so to speak.
Anyway, several years ago I was on tour with my old band and we were staying with a guy who made a tape for our tour van that had a bunch of old thrash metal on it like Whiplash and Destruction. I really dug it so from there I was on the lookout for metal records in second hand shops and stuff... started buying what I could of old thrash and branched out from there into black metal and later death metal. I still love punk but I feel that heavy metal can give me the same aggressive, antisocial and rebellious music but with more variety and better musicianship. Punk and metal are definitely two sides of the same coin for me.

When I was 12-13 me and a friend broke into a club house of a local "gang" of metallers. We stole some tapes of bands like ACCEPT, IRON MAIDEN, JUDAS PRIEST and TANKARD if I remember right. None of those guys does listen to metal anymore, I guess it was because we stole their tapes, he he !
From that on we we both got more interested in that music and we bougt ROCK HARD magazine at the local supermarket, of course there where only featured big bands and we got introduced to the current albums of those bands like SEPULTURA Chaos A.D. or OBITUARY World demise and so on. It took us a while to realize the older albums of those bands are way better and where looking for them. When there was some second hand LP store in the neighbour city getting a huge collection of metal LPs for sale we where like in heaven. I bought albums only because of the cover artworks and band pics. Still have DESTRUCTION, SODOM, EXUMER, ONSLAUGHT LPs from this shop.
I think that was around 1995-1996.

In 1992 I was on holiday at my cousin, and he had e black album of Metallica. I was eleven years old then. I listened to this and i loved this stuff. The I bought all metallica albums and listened to this for a months. I remember i was thinking that on Kill em all or Ride is other singer, than on black album hehe. Then I started to buy some other metal cassetes, like Venom, Slayer, Megadeth, mostly thrash stuff. About 1994 i discovered death and black metal, classic albums like sabbath or purple or zeppelin, started to buy some zines, going on live shows. I was totally into music, into metal, and I am to this day. And to this Day Metallica is My favourite band of all time, 16 years now.

I find this very strange; that a few metallers would ave their own club house. I think it's great but it's still strange to me.
