I got into metal in middle school. This kid who I can't remember the name of - had long black hair and always wore a Slayer hoodie - lent me a copy of Pantera's "Vulgar of Display of Power". And it went on and from there. Though of course, I went through that gateway band phase (Slipknot, Disturbed, etc.) and I'm not too proud of it. Glad that's all over.

I love (almost) all metal genres - from classics to thrash, to death, to black, to metalcore/deathcore, and just about anything in between. I just don't like nu-metal and modern crappy mallcore.

But my favorite genres are technical/brutal death metal, slam, and deathcore. My favorite bands are Cattle Decapitation, Devourment, Cryptopsy, Dying Fetus, The Black Dahlia Murder, Infant Annihilator, Ingested, Lorna Shore, Suffocation...to name a few.

I'm also a big on symphonic black metal and DSBM. I think Emperor's "In the Nightside Eclipse" is the greatest black metal album of all time. My other favorite BM bands are Belphegor, Leviathan, Burzum, and Xasthur.
