The band that got me into metal? Or, specifically death metal? Probably Cab Calloway's Minnie the Moocher...

Sometimes I wonder why I have the taste in music I have. I don't recall my mom ever listening to that much music. My dad...? He has like one burnt CD that I made for him. Does he listen to it? Nope.

In fact, I can hardly cope without some music in the background. Either that, or I have to have a fan blowing. My dad? He can drive us up to see my brother and he will be in silence for over five hours. I have my mp3 player with me, so it's not monotonous. I cannot believe he can be in such silence for so long without going insane

I was, definitely, by no means gently ushered into the world of metal. My dad was always a massive metal head, and he used to have Maiden, Metallica, Motorhead and Priest among others blasting out over this old CD stereo type thing he had installed in the corner. I started out hating it and soon turned to bands like Green Day which had a more upbeat vibe and more of a melodic tune; only because it easier on my less experienced ears than a Slayer thrash metal song would.

At the age of about 5 I received my first albumn, American Idiot. I was in love with it but of course, at that age, I wasn't a die-hard fan of any genre. I listened to music spanning many genres like Gary Numan and the Black Eyed Peas.

One day, when I was around 7, I was listening to the stereo in my room and my dad came in and gave me a CD. It was Pearl Jam - Ten. His very words were 'It's good to enjoy different types of music but just try this out, its what got me into what I love'.
I'm sure I can remember those words off by heart solely down to the fact that was the very moment I fell in love with rock, metal and grunge. Alive and Even Flow were the first songs and I was instantly intoxicated. This lead onto bands such as Alter Bridge, Alice in Chains and Nirvana, (AIC is my everlasting love).

Further expanding on this I came across bands like System of a Down, which I adored, which then lead onto Metallica. Now Metallica is really the band that rocketed me off into the world of metal. I found a real love in Metallica, and I think this is due to their melodic tunes and real passion in their songs. After Metallica thrust me into the world of heavier metal, I soon found Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Anthrax. These three bands were also heavily enforced by my father.

Now my passion took a new course into thrash metal like Slayer, Mastodon, Megadeth and Anvil.
I continue to find new bands and new interests today, and the never ending pathways of metal and rock are what I mostly indulge my free time in these days!

But if I had to pick a single band out of there, that really got me into metal?
It'd have to be Metallica - without them I probably wouldn't have found most of the bands that I know and love today.

My favorite band. Good job, dad!

But don't simply flow down the stream of metal. I always look back onto bands that caused the metal genre to grow: The oldies.

probably The Kinks when I was a little kid in the 80's and oldies radio played You Really Got Me.

that got me into metal. I just didn't know it yet. Punk too

I guess the first metal band I've heard was Dream Theater. Previously, I'd heard an acoustic tribute album by Pipo & Elo, I think it was Scenes From a Memory. This led me afterwards to the original album and that's how I got into the band. Later on (or maybe at the same time, don't remember so clearly), I began to listen all the classic stuff such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Judas Priest, Dio, Iron Maiden and so on.
