That's a bit close minded. What exactly turns you off of other genres?

I think the first band that I enjoyed that's stlll considered 'metal' is Black Sabbath,
in particular, this album:

Back when I was a young man, a lot of the bands that were called "heavy metal"
are now considered "hard rock', since the ultra-hard stuff didn't exist yet.

The music my friends and I were into were all guitar-heavy groups--Rush, Aerosmith,
Led Zeppelin, Ted Nugent, AC/DC, Frank Zappa, Van Halen, etc.--and later, most of
the NWOBHM groups (Def Leppard, Diamond Head, Iron Maiden).

Speaking of Iron Maiden, I still love those first two albums with Paul DiAnno!

I guess KORN got me into metal since that was like the 2nd cd i bought

after korn i looked into my dads top 2 fav bands Black sabbath and Led zeppelin and the rest is history

so u can say Rock music is kinda the gateway to metal 4 me anyways

was never a huge fan of Iron maiden or preist ... it just seemed a little more boring to me

Pantera was one of my early fav "metal" bands because they had more of a darker feel more grooves and more ....uhhh anger obvs has a kid thats the stuff that drew me in compared to Maiden and preist

Back in the day, these bands were considered to be 'hard rock' and I can't recall the 'heavy metal' term being used much before the mid to late 70's.
But these bands were the ones that got me started, in order...

Led Zeppelin
Deep Purple
Blue Cheer
Black Sabbath
Blue Oyster Cult

Although, of those bands, the 'heavy metal' tag probably only applies to Black Sabbath these days.
So, if that's the case, it would be this band, this album and the song 'Iron Man'

Kiss back in the seventies: music + super heroes look. When you are 12/13 years you can't resist to such a magical combination

Probably either Black Sabbath or Slayer. Hearing Reign In Blood for the first time was one of the formative events in my music education. Of course I was also getting into Maiden by that time, so it's hard to say. I think by the time you've gotten into two or three metal bands, it becomes impossible to pin down who the next one was.

For me it was definately Metallica that started it all. When I was 13/14-ish I didn't really listen to music at all and my sister decided to put Metallica's "Damage, Inc." on in her car. I was sucked into it. I instantly went and got Master of Puppets.

As for the 4 slot... Honestly for me it was between Morbid Angel and Death. I tend to be drawn more to the extreme side of the metal genre.

Garth Brooks's "Ropin the Wind" is what got me into metal. You can't go wrong with a little Garth Brooks...

Iron Maiden. My dad bought the Flight 666 album for me, and I've liked metal and other "heavy genres" since then.

My first metal album was Bathory. That was pretty mind blowing.
