when I was in elementary school, I listened to mainstream metal... this was mid 80s when hair metal was still dominant on radio and television. When I was in 6th grade, in 1989 I was introduced to bands like testament, exodus, dark angel, slayer, bloodfeast, crumbsuckers, forbidden, sodom, sadus, and other mostly thrash and speed metal bands thanks to a good friends older brothers tape collection of the heavier side of heavy metal. From there we kept going. By 7th grade in 1990 we had Bolt Thrower, Carcass, Cancer, Morbid Angel, Deicide, Dismember, Morgoth, Pestilence, Cadaver, Napalm Death, Massacre, etc tapes and had not yet had a cd player. Nevertheless, I have been into metal truthfullly my entire life since I was probably 8 years old, and can proudly say I was with death metal and black metal from its very beginning. I do not appreciate having mallcore kid as a ranking because that is just ridiculous now that you have read my relation/background into metal. I understand the point system however and am proud to finally be a registered user since I have been using this site for quite a while now without ever registering.
