Hi, you guys can call me Fai or whatever you like. I liked Metal since I was a kid but I suppose Slipknot got me into it.

Greetings! I go by Missee, nice to meet you :3

I listened to a random mixture of metal (Tool, Rammstein, Demons & Wizards, Nightwish, Sonata Arctica...) later in middle school and early in high school, but didn't really get further into it until university, when I finally made some friends who were into heavier music who made me discover more awesome bands

Hello, you can call me Random, or RP which ever. I didn't get in to metal till a few years ago when a now defunct band Fair to Midland planted the metal seed then bands like Demon Hunter, Avenged Sevenfold, 10 years, Dream Theater, Pantera and Korn helped to foster it in to a mighty metal tree that has branches in all the subgenres of metal. I now listen to the likes of The Acacia Strain, Cannibal Corpse, Soilwork, In Flames, to Within Temptation, Moonspell, and Nightwish. Plus everything in-between, from folk metal like Ensirferum, Hammerfall, and Korpiklaani to the theatrical like Epica, Rhapsody of Fire, and Dream Theater. As well as, black metal in Candlemass, Katatonia, Black Sabbath and many more genres.

I go by Mony, Hello. Music and my family are deeply intertwined different styles of music. Several drummers and guitarist in my family so I grew up with music. Mostly Sabbath, Hendrix, Beatles, Kiss (old school make up wearing kiss, not 80s or beyond), and Metallic (nothing after Master of Puppets). I myself listened to groups like D.R.I., Storm troopers of Death (SOD) , Anthrax, Slayer, Death, Suicidal Tendencies, Fear Factory... yada yada yada. I love music, several genres not just metal. Really into Crossfaith right now. that's about it. If there is any music you want me to listen to, metal or not let me know language is not important as long as the bands music is frickin awesome.

Hi all. Im a bit late to the party it seems. Im Skreig, but my friends call me 'gay'. (kidding. dont do that.)
My musical preference is pretty ambiguous. I like most anything that has a solid riff / beat.
I do play guitar, electric and acoustic, though I am out of practice, but want to pick it up again as I enjoy playing.
I've been to only one concert in my life, as regrettable as that is...

If you wanna shoot the breeze, add me, Im a pretty friendly sociopath. :D

I'm C-Dig. Or CS. Or Digs. Or Chris. Whatever works, I really don't care. I listen to all sorts of crap, and I've been listening to stuff like Slayer n' Pantera since I was practically a tot; so when it comes to metal there isn't much I can't rock out to.

Hi, I've been listening to Metal since I was about 14 years old, I'm 32 now. I was listening mainly to Green Day and the like at that time, but it was my older brother that got me into Metal. He was listening to everything from Korn, Fear Factory, Machine Head, to Cannibal Corpse, Cradle Of Filth, Slayer etc, and it wasn't long before I caught the metal bug. We played in a metal band together along with my best friend for years , I'm a drummer, and we plan to get back to it sometime in the future when our schedules allow it.

Some of my favorite Metal bands are Megadeth, Soilwork, Killswith Engage, Slipknot, Pantera, and A7X, but there are many more, and I also love Horror punk such as The Misfits and Calabese. \m/

I go by Axerilis, and I've been listening to metal for as long as I can remember. My siblings liked to play bands like Metallica, Helloween, Angra, Rhapsody, etc when I was very little, so I guess that's where it started. But I only really became a metalhead when I was about 10. My top favourite bands now are Bullet For My Valentine and The Devil Wears Prada

I've been listening to metal since the 80's when I was born. If I recall correctly I got hooked to metal when I heard Manowar, Iron maiden and Metallica for the first time in the radio on some metal program. I'm pretty open to all types of metal as long as it has a good melody/rhythm.

Some of the bands I listen/listened to over the years in no particular order:
-Sonata Arctica
-In flames
-Children of bodom
-Type O negative
-Iron maiden
... and the list goes on

Hello, I go by Wakko or my real name Bayne which ever floats your boat I guess, huh where do I start. I guess I was just raised listing to Metal music due to my family being real metal/Grunge fans. I think my first concert ever was when i was around 10, saw one of my all time favorite bands live Iron Maiden! long story short I was just raised on music and metal was just one I stuck with.

So I don't feel left out here are some of my favorite bands: Pantera, Lamb Of God, Gwar, Dio, Motor Head, SLAYER, Anthrax, 3 Inches of Blood, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Municipal Waste, Battle Cross, Sepultura, Amon Amarth, D.R.I, Tankard, Cannibal Corpse, Cattle Decapitation, Baptized In Blood.

And Much more. That's me folks, nice to meet you all

I go by Dawnstar. I got into metal when Master of Puppets by Metallica came out. I was listening to my big brothers music through his door and was hooked. I stole the tape and the rest is history. On to Iron Maiden,Slayer,Dio,King Diamond,Sepultura,The list goes on non stop. I Love Pantera, Tool, Puscifer, old school Metallica and Megadeth. Music is my outflow. I play bass and I can scream so it works for me. Im in REHAB (outpatient) right now so Im super fucking pissed off at my world. Metal helps me cope.
