Hey everyone,

I'm new to the MA forums, though I've been using the site for a while. I'm also new to metal in general as I only got into it about a year ago. I mostly like death metal, but I listen to a little of everything. Besides metal, I also enjoy math, writing campy sci-fi stories, and reading inane webcomics.

I guess I'll see you all around the forums.

Hi guys! So glad to finally be joining the metal archives. I have been a fan of metal for a long time, since I was around 16. I got into the genre because I was browsing classic rock videos on youtube and I wanted to dig into whatever I could find. At the time I was listening to mostly The Doors, Genesis, and Pink Floyd. I stumbled into a channel that uploaded metal videos through looking through the subscriptions of some guy's youtube channel. That lead me to Slayyer000's channel (or whatever his name was), and another channel called hellheadbanger. Both are now deleted. I discovered some of my first favorite metal bands from those channels through their favorite videos and uploads. Stuff like Unbounded Terror, Frostmoon - tordenkrieg, Aspid - Extravasation, inquisition, etc. At the time I mostly found videos through youtube's related video search and I would create playlists of albums to listen to them. I remember when I first stumbled onto metal it was like I felt like I had unearthed something spectacular that was totally new to me. I didn't discover the metal-archives until about a year later. My interest in metal only grew from there.

Eventually after I felt like I had explored all that the underground of metal had to offer (save for a slew of dogshit underground trendy metal bands) I started to feel at a bit of a loss. That's when I decided I would start to explore other music. I don't listen to that much metal anymore, but it still seems like a genre to me that has the largest offering of material that I could have ever imagined. I tend to gravitate towards more harsh, cynical, unhappy music than anything, so stuff like Joy Division is cool. I like a few goth rock bands, and a few emo bands, a few industrial bands, a few post rock bands, a few shoegaze bands, a few slowcore bands, a few noise rock bands, and I have tried out more stuff that I never care to return to than I have in these genres than with metal. Out of the hundreds of metal albums I downloaded and ended up buying some years ago, I had most of them on constant rotation for years, as opposed to other genres I just get tired of and don't find anything interesting in.

So although metal may not currently be my genre of choice, that's mostly because I got tired of the same old albums on rotation all the time. I am a bit of an insatiable music explorer. I always have my hopes that the next album I unearth will be more interesting that whatever I was listening to before hand. I have been in love with this website for some years. Simply because of the fully realized layout, with discography, ratings, similar artists, photos, lyrics, etc. I was addicted to this site for a very very long time. I hope that the forum will be a satisfying experience for me too.

Hello fellow Metal Archivians. I've been lurking around here for quite some time, and I finally decided I should start contributing, whether it is constructive wiki edits or beautiful time wasting on the forum... So, the basics:

14 years old (But not a dickhead. I try to represent myself in such a way that you wouldn't know I was 14 unless you were told)
Male
Tabletop RPG fan.

Now for all 0 of you who care is a list of some of my favourite bands:
* Bathory
* Dissection
* Behemoth
* Emperor
* Amon Amarth
* Communic
* Marduk
* Blind Guardian
* Ensiferum
* Primordial
* Incursus
* Manilla Road
* Sabaton
* Hammerfall (First got me into metal)
* Inferi
* Belphegor
* Dragonland
* StormWarrior
* Origin
* Satyricon (New and old. *gasp*)

Quite a few others as well, but I can't be bothered writing more of this useless post now. Recommendations based on the aforementioned bands are much appreciated!

Hey guys!
I'm MDL666, writting from Portugal, so, my english sometimes is not very good!
The band that brought me into metal, definitly was Acrassicauda, from Iraq. I've been searching information about some bands in Metal Archives since the last year, but today, i decided to make an account.
Well, besides metal, i like animals (vegetarian), TV shows, some cartoons, read creepypastas and search about the supernatural and other mysteries around the world.
I like to play drums and bass too. However, i only play in a bass that is in a local shop, i have no intentions to buy it.

I think that's all. Cya folks!

Hi Guys, im 17 years old and live in Germany.
I have been listening for Metal about ~10 years, my first favorite song ever was Slipknot's Duality and they were my favorite Band until 2008 (i didn't really like AHIG, and sometime i stopped caring. I still like a few songs but now i even find them a tad embarrassing). At the age of 8 or 9 i got into Children Of Bodom, Avenged Sevenfold and Metallica, i still like COB very much, i rarely listen to A7X and Metallica's ok now, but i'm not too crazy about them anymore. Then in 2010 i lost interest in Metal, i always listened to a bit of Metal at least but it wasn't until 2013, that my playlists mostly contained of Metal. I got into Dimmu Borgir somewhere in late 2010 and bought In Sorte Diaboli immediately, i read online about Black Metal and so i knew the history but i couldn't get into Black Metal at all. I found Burzum's War and Mayhem's Deathcrush funny, but i always thought how could you listen to such stuff. In 2012 i started liking Burzum and in 2013 Immortal. Now i am really into Mayhem and Bathory since a few months, so you could say it took me almost 4 years to get into Black Metal. Since i didn't really listen to Metal anymore i wore 'normal' clothes again and i grew out of most of my band shirts. Now i've recently bought a Bathory Goat shirt and a Mayhem Logo shirt, since i'm getting back into Metal i really want to get the metal look again and i am also growing my hair out again at the moment (the longest i had was to my chin at 10 or 11 i guess). I'm also working on a battle vest at the moment and i will show it in the battle vest threads as soon as i have sewn my new patches on.
Oh yeah and i've been playing the drums for 9 years, 6 of them with lessons and now starting to have lessons again. I also play piano but it isn't as near as much fun as playing drums.
So yeah, there you go, glad if you read all of it, and i'm hoping for a good time here. Cheers!

Are you a fan of 1349 or Rotting Christ? They are going to be playing in Oberhausen next month (separate dates) and I was planning on catching a train out there to see them (I am in Lüneburg on a student visa). Not many metal fans in this town as far as I have seen, but I expect Hamburg is a different story and was planning on poking around there this weekend to see what I could turn up.

Hello everyone!
Even though I'm a member of the site for 10 years, and have posted sometimes on the forum, I haven't introduced myself. So here I go :
I'm a 35 years old metalhead from Belgium, listening to metal for about 20 years now. First metalbands I listened to were Iron Maiden and Metallica (Fear of the Dark/Black Album era). Back in the days my only two sources of getting to know new music were MTV and a radioshow on Studio Brussel called Metalopolis. Thanks to Metalopolis I got interested in the more extreme genres of metal, especially black metal. The first extreme metal album I bought was 'Ancient Rites - Blasfemia Eternal', which opened a whole new musical world to me. From there on things just got worse :D. Nowadays I still listen to metal - almost - exclusively (call me narrowminded), but my disposable income isn't that big, and if I have to choose, I choose metal music. Thanks to this site and internet in general I discovered a lot of new bands, and keep on discovering new bands.
Cheers !

Hail, people of metal-archives.

I finally decided to register to this site since I find myself browsing through either the forums or the database pretty much daily (working is a tedious thing) and thought I'd add our little death metal band to the fold. Much to my suprise I found it already in the queue. I play drums and acted as the appointed slavedriver while producing our debut EP, hopefully I'll hold the same position in the future. I also enjoy various video games, oftentimes a bit too much.

There, introducing oneself is a hard thing, at least without the invigorating power of beer.
