I grew up on metal. The first metal album I got was Maiden's Powerslave (on vinyl, natch) and I became a true Maiden freak up until they released Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, which I thought was awful at the time. I then got into thrash bands like Metal Church, Metallica, Living Death, Kreator, DRI, Prong, Sabbat, etc. When I got sick of thrash I moved onto death metal like Death's Leprosy album, Carcass, Godflesh (still one of my faves). On the metal side of things as of late I've been listening to a lot of grind (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed), and DOOM (Paradise Lost, Trouble, The Obsessed). I've got a soft spot for the NWOBHM bands like Holocaust, Tank, classic metal like Canada's Sword, Scorpions, early Def Leppard.....I could go on and on.....
METAL FOR LIFE! Cheers

YES!!!  Karma to Torgo for knowing who Savatage is!!!

Their very 1st album Sirens is one of the unsung classics of power metal.    I like their 80's stuff the best. 

It was a huge loss to the metal/music community when original guitarist Chris Oliva (who was brothers with singer John Oliva) died in a car wreck.


I thought it was kinda cool on a cheesy level for Paul O'Neil to incorporate the band into his pet project.  You might have heard of them...They're called Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
It was cool that they brought Chris's substitute Chris Caffery along with them too

Anybody remember The Sensational Alex Harvey Band?

Alex Harvey was not really metal, but certainly not "pop rock" either.   TeddyR

"Vambo":

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rg9FcXmwnYo

Their song "Tomahawk Kid" a GREAT tune based on RL Stevensons Treasure Island.  Harvey died in 1982, but the band still plays shows.  You can see a clip of this song on youtube, but I don't think it sounds near as good as the original.

On edit: "Vambo" was the first part of a larger piece called "Hot City Symphony" and I just realized the second part,
"The Man in the Jar" Small | Large
also has a version on YouTube.   This song might appeal to the folks on this site, since it is a kind of 'film noir' set to music.   Smile

A lot of people don't know that Primus' guitarist Larry "Ler" Lalonde was a guitarist in Possessed back in the day.

I knew! Cuz I went to school with him and the other members of Possessed!  TeddyR

I personally love The Dungeons Are Calling. Infact. I'm gonna fire it up in iTunes right now.

I also grew up on all forms of 80's metal. I still have a lot of my old Vinyl. I listened to everything from glam metal to death metal. From the big label stuff to independent labels to trading demo tapes through mail. Damn, I wish I still had some of that stuff...like the original Blind Illusion demos or the old Hirax stuff (Bombs of Death). Ah, memories.

I have a burned copy of one of TSO's CD's. nothing really overwhelming for me but not bad at the same time.

I have a Blind Illusion demo that I got on Ebay a while back.  That was the band that Ler was in when they were playing with Primus and how he started to hang with Les Claypool.

As for Possessed, that's too cool that you went to school with those guys.  Seven Churches is a personal favorite of mine. I also still have The eyes of Horror on cassette which was produced by Joe Satriani due to Ler taking some lessons from him back in the 80's.

I don't know if you heard about this but Possessed's leader Jeff Becerra was shot and paralyzed from the waist down during supposedly an attempted robbery back around 1989.  Some people said that it was a drug deal gone wrong but Jeff has said that it was some people attempting to mug him, he didn't give up his wallet or whatever so they shot him.

He's actually put a fake version of Possessed back together but he's the only original member. I believe that some band called Sadistic Intent is his backup band. I think, that he performs in a wheel chair.

I turned 32 this past March and all I listened to in the 80's was metal.   I got a lot into progressive rock during the tale end of the 80's and then I got really into funk and all other types of music at that point.

But Metal is still my favorite type of music overall.

Yeah, back in the day all I listened to was metal. Now I have a pretty eclectic collection, spanning numerous musical genres, but metal will always be my favorite. It makes up the bulk of what I have in my iPod.

And I am 38. Buggedout

Even though I'm not happy about being in my 30's  (I'm sure that the 40's will be worse  TeddyR ), it still is awesome that most if not all of the metal bands that I loved growing up are still out there playing and performing/recording in some fashion.

I got to see Iron Maiden back on the 2005 Ozzfest and they still looked and sounded as good as when I saw them back in 1986 (though they have 3 guitarists now).

I was Slayer back in February in DC and they still put on one heck of a show.

I'm going to see Megadeth in October in Richmond, VA.    One great thing about veteran type acts is that you can pretty much guarantee a great show out of them.

I grew up on a metal diet and still intake a heavy dose of it.  Particular favs, Testament, Anthrax, Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth, Annihilator for thrash.  Death/Gore metal (as mentioned in another thread) Cannibal Corpse, Decide, Hypocrisy, Exhumed.  And yes a guilty pleasure of mine is the hair metal genre RATT, Winger, etc. 

I used to be the metal director at my college radio station. Its amazing how many metal bands are still chugging along.  Helloween, Overkill, etc. Metal is something you either get or don't and luckily many of us get it here. 

Now for your listening pleasure, a song about Children Of The Corn...

Side note, does any one listen to the new "stoner" and "doom" rock thats been out there in the past few years?  Stuff like Fu Manchu, Sheavy, Orange Goblin, The Sword, etc.

I grew up on metal.  These days my tastes run toward the avant (Sunn/Earth), nostalgic (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) and black metal but when I was a kid and still to a degree to this day, I was addicted to the thrash.  DRI, Suicidal Tendencies, Cryptic Slaughter, Corrosion of Conformity.

One of my present favorites is Municipal Waste.  If you're not listening to them, you really need to do yourself a favor and pick up their albums Hazardous Mutation and The Art of Partying.  It's tight, it's fast and usually funny.

Also, if you haven't seen it, I can't recommend the documentary, Metal: A Headbanger's Journey nearly enough.  It's so good.

Side note, does any one listen to the new "stoner" and "doom" rock thats been out there in the past few years?  Stuff like Fu Manchu, Sheavy, Orange Goblin, The Sword, etc.
Oh yeah.  I'm a little picky about this stuff since a lot of it starts to blend and sound alike, but my big favorites are Sleep, High On Fire and Big Business.

The thing that I love so much about the metal genre is that it's one of the very few that has so many distinguishable sub-genres within it.

You have thrash, speed, death, grindcore, doom, power, black, hair to name some of the more prominent ones.
