Many years back, around the time I was hardly 13 I used to play alot of videogames, and so I'd join videogame communities to discuss my inherent interest. Around the time, back in middle school, it became 'cool' to follow the role of a mal goth and I couldn't help but admire the breakthrough in my previous idealized aesthetics of cool. From this enthused ignorance, I started paying more attention to the more alternate musical interests of people on the internet, that I had misjudged as having lived the same alternate lifestyle. I started off listening to H I M, Cradle of Filth and Iron Maiden but by the time I got to high school my taste evolved into various power / progressive / folk metal artists such as Ensiferum, Porcupine Tree, Tool, Kamelot and Helloween. I don't think I ever truly got sucked into metal until my senior year, when I finally gave death / black metal a fair listen. I got seriously attached to bands such as Death, Nile, Arcturus, Quo Vadis, Shining, In Flames among countless other bands.

Very lame, but so it goes.

The first metal band I got into was Rammstein after seeing the music video for "Du Hast" on MTV back in '97.

The first album I ever bought was Alice in Chains' Dirt when I was 8, which was the same year I started playing bass. Some people consider them a metal band. I don't. I just threw that out there for those who do. After that, Metallica, when I recorded a staticy Welcome Home (Sanitarium) from the local college radio on cassette on my family's only CD player. This was '94 or '95. I was really into Metallica from then until about 14. While they were releasing Load, ReLoad and Garage, Inc., I was sticking with the first four or five albums, my favorite still being Master of Puppets, although I did buy Load first.
After that, I discovered Pantera when I ripped off Official Live 101 from a Columbia House disc order. They were so ****in' fast. When I first listened to the live versions of Sandblasted Skin and Suicide Not pt. 2, it was the fastest music I had ever heard, so naturally, I listened to it as loud as possible on my DiscMan everyday at school. That was 13.
And then I discovered Slayer through some friends. They pretty much replaced Metallica as my "second favorite" band after Pantera took the helm.
Since then, a lot of good bands have kept me into metal: namely Opeth, Nile, Between the Buried and Me, Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, and a rash of hardcore bands like Burnt by the Sun, Car Bomb, Psyopus, Dillinger Escape Plan, and The Black Dahlia Murder.
