You could have used "Pig Brick" as a username (two actual words) and the meaning would be unchanged. Food for thought.

Hey, I'm David and I love metal. I still feel like a newbie to it as there are a lot of well-known bands I haven't listened to extensively...but luckily I got past the "listen to one band for months on end" phase so that I could broaden my metal horizons. :) I'm currently learning how to play guitar, so that I can make and record metal.

That's supposed to be a phase? Damnit...

Hey people,

I'm a mid twenties (27 to be precise) guy from Croatia, obviously a metal afficionado. It's been quite a while since I got introduced to this amazing world of music (wouldn't want to remember just how long has it been, don't want to feel old :D), though I enjoy other forms of music as well (mostly classic rock, some jazz, classical, some kinds of pop music, especially hardcore punk and derived forms - which make a juicy combination with metal - etc.).

Of my metal, it would be easier to list genres I tend to dislike. That being, though definitely not to the point of not standing anything produced within the paradigm, euro-power (think Stratovarius; it seems to me that there's a noticeable difference from one band to another here, e.g. I enjoy myself a dose of Gamma Ray for instance) and gothic metal.

Other than that, I'm majoring in English and Comparative Literature, and I don't feel like typing anymore :D

I'm a newb. Sup.

Also I play guitar and keyboards in a stoner band with no recordings or anything online because I refuse to post anything until we make a recording that doesn't suck cadavertits.

Pleased to meet you.

Hello there,

I'm an almost 30 year old guy from the Netherlands. Started listening to metal when I was 13 or 14, first Rhapsody and Roots by Sepultura. The first album I bought was Virtual XI from Iron Maiden, the second album was an original pressing from Merciless The Awakening. After that it went quickly from bad to worse, I really like black, death and some doom and thrash.

Other hobbies are boxing, gaming and other stuff.

Cheers.

You are shooting yourself in the foot with that one though, as no gay person would respect someone with a standpoint like that. Ergo, you are actually disrespecting gay people.

Stop talking about groups of people as if they were a optional faction in an mmo

Hello everyone. Ols here. I have found MA to be a vastly useful site for researching new bands, as I am sure many of you would agree. Decided to start posting in the forums as a result. I live in TN, USA, and I mostly enjoy Black, Doom, and Death, though I am by no means hold a militantly kvlt attitude and enjoy other forms of music as well, so long as the writing is quality. I am a guitarist currently trying to put together a doom metal outfit and am currently writing a solo black metal project and doing a split with another band at the time of this writing. Anyways, I hope to contribute what I can to this community in any way I can. Always for the love of metal :)

I tried signing up about half a million times over the past year or two, but I never received the confirmation email on either of my main accounts. I finally used a shitty throwaway account with a shitty username so I could make a post and now I plan on sticking around and making more of them.

If anyone frequents the last.fm games/general discussion forums, you probably already know me as noodle_man.

Hello, I am Lord Atherton and I hail from Canada.

First post. Been peeking through this site for a few hours and decided to register. Will probably be sharing this account with my boyfriend because he is probably going to want to register his band here or something, but I really love this site so far.

Black metal, Death metal, Thrash metal - in that order are my faves.

Hello there, I am Angbandian. I hail from Angband. I want to clarify although I am young and my rank is "metalcore kid", I do not listen to any heavy metal or core in-real-life. I only listen to metal that is not sludge, punk, 80's, or core. I favor things such as black/death/folk/ambient/pagan stuff.

I am happy to be on the metal archives and I will do my best to be worthy of existing within the metal community. I do not believe "anything not on the archives isnt metal." But i am happy to be among people who actually have good taste in metal... i mean, "music"... and I am proud to be in the community.

Hi, I'm Sid

I'm from Philippines, so that makes me a Filipino. I came here to seek different opinions on different topics and learn things.

I have a broad musical taste. I listen to Heavy Metal, Power Metal, Death Metal, (some) Black Metal, (some) Pop, and 90's mainstream rock.

I'm a 90's guy. I've been first exposed to heavy music in the late 90's. I will not mention any bands from that time, but let's just say 'mainstream rock/metal' at that time. So that's the thing that sticks to me until now.

But as I grew older, I found more genre along the way and my musical appreciation has matured compared in the past.

I sing. I sing a lot. I sing all the time, there's nothing spectacular with my voice though. I'm a bland Michael Kiske-imitator.

See ya.

Hello, I'm Astrid from Norway.

I joined because I needed help keeping track of all the bands I listen to, because my memory is absolute shit.
I also hope I'll discover loads of great new bands here and so on...

Greetings! ...from the Bay Area (California, USA).

I grew up in the late 80's and early 90's listening to heavy and speed metal, as well as rock. I love classic 60's and 70's rock, and even some 90's stuff too, but 80's metal will always be my favorite genre. You can view my favorite bands in my profile.

The first metal album I ever bought was Iron Maiden "Live After Death" on cassette back in '91 or '92. I was around 10-11 years old. They've remained my favorite band of all-time ever since.

I'm currently listening to (and trying to hunt down on CD) the Sabbath albums with Tony Martin (87-90, 94). Fantastic stuff!

And that's about it, I guess.

Hello, I'm Ganondox. I'm not sure if I'm more accurately described as a metalhead or a rocker, because while I like range of music, most my preferred music is in the moderately heavy range, definitely not extreme metal if it's even metal. Some of my favorite bands which are in the archives include Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, In Flames, Nightwish, Blind Guardian and Devin Townsend. Aside from metal, I also like alternative, prog, punk, basically rock in general. Just as a warning, I'm one of those people who has been to lead to think Metal Archives is run by a bunch of elitists who won't recognize metal if it bit them on the ass, definitely not someone who believes that anything not in the archives is not metal, but I'm open minded, so I hope this community proves tolerable and I'll have a warm stay here. There is lots of good information here :) . I can also be a bit of an asshole, so if you see me being an asshole, politely alert me.

Hey, I'm Shawn. I'm a 20 year old male. I'm a huge MUSIC fan. Not limited to only metal, but that's what a majority of my collection happens to be. Anyway, I'm a bit out of the metal loop, life has gotten in the way, and I've fallen way behind on new releases. That being said I'm a huge black metal, and doom/sludge/stoner fan. I'm looking to acquire some knowledge on new releases and bands. And maybe even some older ones that I've left fall through the cracks and never checked out. As you can likely tell by the username I'm a huge Gris fan. Anyway, if there's anything you want to know feel free to ask.

Excellent list of bands, gorgonsisterhood. Especially Dystopia, Electric Wizard, Goatsnake and Amebix - some of my favourite stuff ever.

And yes, Gris is awesome. Been meaning to write a review for their 2007 release.

Hi

I'm raph, 43 years old, metalhead since the age of 13. (it took me some time to find this topic)

I am French and what else can I say...I don't play guitar anymore, I'm a vinyl and cd collector but will surely get rid off my vinyl collection one of these days.

I hope I didn't break the rules of the forum as I posted twice before finding this topic.

from lead to gold...we are metal

Hey there, I'm Josh from MA (that's in the U.S.A), I'm 19 and I've probably had this account for over a year but I've only posted like twice, mostly lurking. I've been playing bass for a little over two years, (just made the jump from 4 to 6 strings) and I'm mostly a death metal fan/player. I thoroughly enjoy reading bad album reviews, even for albums I like because they are works of art.
I love Immolation.

Hi all, I'm a 30+ metalhead with a collection of over 1500 cds. My tastes in metal cover the whole spectrum but thrash is the first genre I liked. There's something about that sweet sound of the chugga chug riff that is timeless.
I live in Australia and when not working I regularly get twisted into knots by participating in the wonderful art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Fave band: Cavalera era Sepultura

I'm always looking for new bands to check out.

Hello,

My name is Ari (just to keep it simple) I sorta know how this site works I come here all the time most of the time offline. I like to say that I'm pretty green to posting and writing reviews which I hope to do soon. Anyways I'm a 19 (almost 20) year old College student living in the great Appalachian mountains in North Carolina, First time living on my own and ready for the world! I been into metal since I was about 11 first show I've been to was when my father took my older sister to see Agalloch and of course I went. I enjoy all sorts of music mostly in the metal realm of course such things as Black metal, Blackgaze, Depressive Black metal, Melodic death metal, Gothic, Death-Doom metal, Funeral, Experimental death/black metal, and some folk. That's it when it comes to metal :)!

I also enjoy writing a lot of short stories and poetry in my free time maybe I can share it on here. I'm a outdoors kind of person rock climbing and mountain biking. You get the picture one of the many things that I enjoy doing also is drinking all sorts of hot teas, craft beers, and red wines. I take my religion pretty serious if you want to call it that a true devote of nature...Well you have it a little something about me.

I hope one day soon I can get acquainted with a good number of you and maybe share ideas or become friends.

Thank you, for your time.


PS: Not your typical "metalhead" honestly I hate that term a lot because I think it's very much misused.

Greetings. My name is Peter, I come from the dark Balkan woods of Bulgaria and I am 17 years of age. I mainly enjoy Doom metal and most of its variations (Doom/Death, Gothic/Doom, Funeral etc...), Old School Death metal, Black metal, Darkwave/Post-punk/Gothic rock, Ambient and honestly many other kinds of music, but the accent of my interest is rooted in the sombre and gloomy musical realms... I collect tapes (the best format format for me!), cd's, vinyls and slowly build a collection, I'm currently trying to make it alphabetical... Besides Metal and music in general, I enjoy doing all kinds of art (although I'm far from perfect) - Photography, Drawing, I play the acoustic/electric guitar and keyboards (currently alone (with occasional jams with friends)), but I have a growing idea and a very vast conception for a band which I will form soon. I love the woods, the mountains, being around nature in general, long walks, lonely wanderings in obscure places, graveyards, historical landmarks and ancient ruins... Other interests include: some Gaming, artful, beautiful movies, lucid dreams, history (mainly ancient and medieval) and one of my main hobbies - reading (from Nietszche to Tolkien and from Kafka to Lovecraft... truly a lot of stuff I find fascinating for me). In my leisure time I also like to write (mainly poetry) and fragmentary prose in my creative diary (I draw musical and literary influence from the Romantic and Symbolic period). I joined this very useful website because I wanted to sort my Metal collection more easily and because it's very helpful sometimes (it's even my first bookmark...) - in my opinion one of the best places dedicated to this music in the Internet. I plan to start writing reviews soon (mainly for Bulgarian bands). I am usually not a very sociable person, but I'll try to post here more often as most of the time I only lurk and read maybe because I feel that most of the things are already said...

hi, i'm from portugal.
my arrival to metal was a strange coincidence, in the year of 1999 of the modern era, was a crazy year for music lovers, yes, because an application called Napster that make me stay awake night by night. I'm (and was) a big fan of new age, and i was looking a band called Lësiem, but i couldn't remember the name of the band, so i resolve to write the word "chant" in latin (Cantus) thinking in the possibility the album had a track with that word, but napster gave me only one result Cantus from the band Faith and the Muse.
Faith And The Muse, is a darkwave with many influences (is a unique band), but especially, gothic, once in the gothic world wasn't difficult to arrive Nightwish (Oceanborn (1998), Angels Fall First (1997)), Lacuna Coil (In A Reverie (1999)), The Gathering (Mandylon (1995), Nighttime Birds (1997)), Within Temptation (Enter (1997)), and much others, like Lacrimosa, Theatre Of Tragedy, Haggard, Therion.
When some day i decide to change the wave and started with Symphonic Power Metal, After Forever, Edenbridge, Epica, Kamelot, Rhapsorulli, etc.
And now i like to listen all included in Symphonic/Orchestral/Operatic/Medodic Black/Power/Heavy/Doom/Gothic/Stoner/NeoClassical/Folk/Speed/Progressive Metal, and i little of Death and Thrash.

Hi

I am from Toronto, Ontario. I've been listening to metal since I was 14 years old. I actually got into metal through rap, believe it or not. Long story short, my first favourite band was Linkin Park (I know, it's gross isn't it?). Well I was into rap for some reason in elementary school, and LP's incorporation of rap got me into them. That was my first taste in heavy music, if you consider LP heavy.

Anyway, I heard about Metallica through LP, because they mentioned they were influenced by them. So a friend recommended Enter Sandman and Master of Puppets. That night changed my life, and I knew my righteous path was the one of metal. Master of Puppets was far superior to Enter Sandman and still is. I didn't even know at the time Enter Sandman was their "sell out" song. So, I guess I had a natural taste for pure metal.

For years I only listened to thrash metal such as Metallica, Slayer, MegaDeth and a bit of Iron Maiden. That was pretty much all I listened to in high school. Well, in 2010 I finally decided to give death metal a try. I never thought I would get into it, I couldn't stand the vocals, just sounded like burps and growls to me. But I started listening to Death, which in my opinion, is a good bridge between thrash and death metal.

Beyond Death, I didn't explore death metal much. It wasn't until I started playing the table top game Warhammer, I discovered the death metal band Bolt Thrower, who sing about the game a bit. I was intrigued by their lyrical themes, and album artwork. This is when I really began to grow an interest in death metal. A friend then showed me Deicide and Cannibal Corpse. Now death metal is my most favoured genre!! I've become a happier person now, I can go to more shows, since I've broadened my taste. Thrash bands rarely visit us in Toronto, but death metal bands seem to play here and there.

Well, I hope my story didn't bore you all to death. Thanks for reading, and keep on rottin' in the free world!

Greetings from italy!
First of all i have to say thank you to all the moderators and the coders for creating the amazing resource that Encyclopedia Metallum is:
thanks to this site i've discovered countless bands and i've broaden my musical tastes by a lot!

I'm a big fan of metal in all his possible forms: oldschool, modern, raw, aggressive, atmospheric, progressive, fast, doomy.. i've got no prejudices!
i've started to listen metal in the high school (the classic albums of Iron maiden, Metallica, Megadeth, Bathory, Black Sabbath) then thanks to this site i started to delve into the unique sounds of bands such as Voivod, Sigh, Enslaved and i discovered forgotten rare gems of the underground and new killer albums for my collection

I've also interest in music outside metal: i listen a lot of classical, IDM, prog rock, post-punk, neofolk, trip hop, world music, jazz fusion..

i also play guitar in a band: Wrathcult. We play melodic death metal not influenced by the Gothemburg scene but by bands such as King diamond, Later-era Death, Sigh, Immortal..

Well, i hope i did'nt bore you! Thanks a lot and see you all in the forum!
