Hi, I'm Tanuki.

So there I was, sitting in front of a Sega Genesis, having a great time breaking all my controllers as I played Fighting Masters, Eternal Champions, and Beast Wrestler. I can safely say the soundtracks are one of the few things that aged well, and even they sound like Wall-E shitting out balls of tinfoil. Songs like Thunderforce IV "Metal Squad" and King of the Monsters "Ugly Hero" are nonetheless metal by their very definition, and were thus integral in the formation of my love for the genre. We don't talk about the music in Doom 32x. Afterwards things became even less nebulous when I got a PS1 and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater; a series lauded for their godly soundtracks. Except American Wasteland, jesus christ. Several boatloads of gateway punk (and 'Ace of Spades') later, and I was officially hooked.

Specifically I'm partial to NWOBHM, USPM, shred, speed, thrash, crossover, and death (OSDM, melodic, technical, etc). Spin these three bad boys for a brief but complete encapsulation of what I appreciate from metal.

Demolition Hammer - Epidemic of Violence
Riot - Thundersteel
Intestine Baalism - Banquet in the Darkness

I'm also a reviewer. And a weeb.
