I grew up in Seoul, Korea and now live in the Bay Area for college. I didn't know a single 'metalhead' growing up, so it's a miracle that I was able to discover this great style of music. Started in 8th grade with easy listening like Metallica and I've gotten to the point where I can appreciate even the most extreme varieties of metal. The complexity, emotion, and sheer AWESOMENESS of metal music is what encouraged me to pick up a guitar in 10th grade. I've been playing this style of music and listening intently to it ever since.
