How Did You Get Into Metal?

Wed, 10/06/2020 - 21:17

There may already be a forum topic for this but here goes.

How did you get into metal? When did you first here it and like it?

I'll start:

When I was as young as 2 I was often out in the garage working with my dad. He'd always be playing Metallica. New, old, all Metallica. I always loved it. I also got some Led Zeppelin CDs when I was around 4. At the time I enjoyed Led Zeppelin, Metallica, and a lot of classic rock. I remember one time at Costco, I think I was 5. I asked my dad about other metal bands. He told me about the "big 4" and that there were these 3 other bands that came up around the same time as Metallica. (Anthrax, Slayer, Megadeth.)

To me at the time I felt like I had unlocked this whole new chunk of metal. It was awesome. However I didn't listen to those bands for a while.

By the time I was seven I was listening to more metal. But mostly alternative metal, grunge, still cool, but I hadn't found out about all this thrash. Around that time I discovered Suicidal Tendencoes when copying some music to my dad's IPod. (Around 2013, yes, an IPod lol) I listened to "Lost Again" off of "Lights, Camera, Revolution!" a bunch.

And that's pretty much how I got into metal. \m/

Listen to some great metal radio!
