On that note, I may give it another go. If I like it, I will buy it.

Yeah I worked as security at GOO around 2001-2002 and those bands were very popular at the time. Not really my cup of tea in terms of personal taste, but very atmospheric and huge sounding... good times.

For those metal-heads here, what was it that first got you into metal?

For me, it was buying a magazine called Massive and they listed the top 100 albums you have to hear before you die. I bought some, and then it snowballed from there

Of course, I was into metal before then (having seen Metallica in 1993) but having been exposed to a wider variety of bands, I was power-hooked

If I had to come up with my top 5 metal albums of all-time, it would probably look like this -

Metallica: Black Album
Sepultura: Arise
Skinlab: Disembody - The New Flesh
Nothingface: Violence
Five Finger Death Punch: The Way Of The Fist

Easy one for me. My German teacher in Year 7 put on Rammstein's video Engel. Got into them, then my brother showed me a video of an Aussie band Alchemist doing a cover of Eve Of The War. Hands down the single most awesome piece of Classical music covered by a metal band ever. Saw them not long after that when they toured the east coast with a couple of now defunct bands. Had the sorest neck after the first couple of bands, but when Alchemist got on and did this song, I got back up again to mosh like a mofo lol. My neck ended up being like jelly after that night

All time favourite albums, a bit hard for me to choose just 5, but I will give it a shot in no particular order

International

Tyr - Eric The Red
Immortal - Battles in the North/Blizzard Beasts/At The Heart Of Winter
Hypocrisy - Hypocrisy
Behemoth - The Apostasy
Children Of Bodom - Something Wild

Local

Alchemist - Organasm
Dungeon - Rise To Power/One Step Beyond
Aeturnus Dominion - (first album I can't remember off top of my head )
Ruins - Spun Forth As Dark Nets
Furor - Advance Australia Warfare


Had to do 2 separate lists

My doorway into metal was guns'n'roses. At first I got them taped by an older family friend, then I got the cds... pretty much in the order they were released. I remember when I was 12/13 and did a paper round with my walkman playing gnr full blast.

Then of course came Metallica, and Metallica banging on about a few bands and then the floodgates were pretty much opened.

Now it's pretty sparse... don't buy that much new music. Still collect Blood Duster stuff and will pick up the new Soulfly for my collection. Maybe the new Danzig when it comes and the new album Slash has just put out. That's about it.

Top 5 metal albums...

International;

Sepultura - Roots
Soulfly - Soulfly
Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
Pantera - Great Southern Trendkill
Danzig - Danzig II: Lucifuge

Local

Blood Duster - C__t
Damaged - Do Not Spit
Mindsnare - The Death
Beanflipper - garden variety manic depressant
Blood Duster - Blood Duster

I got an Alchemist demo from France the other week, cost me 1.50 Euro and the postage was 6 Euro (I was the only bidder) great tape!

As a child of the 80's it was hair metal all the way. I didn't really discover new stuff until I started listening to 3 Hours of Power then Full Metal Racket on Triple J. Then along came internet radio and Snake Metal Radio opened up a whole new world of metal.

My faves in no particular order:

Amon Amarth - Twilight of the Thunder God/Fate of Norns
Mercyful Fate - Melissa
Carcass - Heartwork
In Flames - Subterranean
Kalmah - The Black Waltz/For the Revolution

Plus throw in some Maiden, Arch Enemy, Wintersun, Vader, Children of Bodom, Kreator... the list goes on.

As promised... (Max gave me kisses... tee hee)



I have my ticket stub from the concert in the back of my Soulfly CD... which is what I do with all my stubs.

Yeah, that's what I usually do to.

Thanks for the picture.
