Awesome man. December 21st for me, waiting patiently. I saw them last year at a rinky dink venue in Pomona. They thoroughly kicked everyones ass. First time I felt like getting in a pit for years. Pike started out the show with a ten minute ear shattering solo.

I started with Hard rock - Deep purple - Made in japan. It was in my uncle's house , looked a cool album so I put it on and it realy hit me... Then a friend of mine brought me a scary album called "The number of the beast" - Iron maiden. This was the gate to metal...

This is a really difficult question for me to answer. It didn't just happen. There were building blocks.

I was exposed to metal at a very early age via my cousins, who were really into groups like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. As a little kid I loved the artwork associated these guys but always found the actual music, young as I was, not nearly as dark or scary or badass as I hoped it would be. When I was in junior high, I was exposed to a different generation of metal by my friends—stuff like Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Death, Obituary, Sacred Reich. This music had more of an edge I could get behind but still I didn't actively listen to much of it (though that would come a little later in life for me) because it lacked a certain weirdness I liked in my music. Nevertheless, these thrash and death metal metal bands, like the NWOBHM bands before them, were essential to me loving metal later in life.

Okay, I'll credit one band. It all changed for me in 1991 when I first Godflesh. I was already a fan of Minstry, Nine Inch Nails, Skinny Puppy, Front 242, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, etc. at this point, but Godflesh put a hard metal edge on that shit like no one I had ever heard before. It was a massive wall of sound. Impenetrable. Bleak. Cinematic. I loved it. They became one of my favorite bands and slowly they would influence me to check out more and more metal over the years.

This was the song that really, truly started it all for me:

Godflesh are amazing. Their music just exudes imagination. I've always been a sucker for metal with a cinematic feel.

The band first got me into metal was Dream Theater. Their music was just amazing, I liked the guitar and keyboard solos so much I fell in love with Progressive Metal in general.

Let me know which so I can track them down. Nothing sounds like Metallica. I heard Testament sounds an awfully lot like Metallica. I didn't think so. Nothing sounds like Kill 'Em All, Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets ...And Justice for All. Okay, nothing can quite sound like them, but I cannot put my finger on anything that sounds even close.

Black Sabbath, on the other hand, I don't know about that one. Still enlighten me, if you can
