I was never really into music as a kid. Than my uncles gave me some old school metal albums (Sabbath, Metallica, Pantera) and ever since its been metal through and through.

Iron Maiden video clip "Holy Smoke" was actually the first thing related to metal which amazed me so much. After that watching some other metal videos from bands like Cradle of Filth, Rammstein, Metallica, Megadeth, Sepultura and made my decision to stick with this genre...

Nobody was there to suggest me some metal so basically found it myself, I believe the general shit-ness of mainstream industry and pop culture led me to metal. Mayhem's Freezing Moon was one of the first songs I heard and it was love on first listen

I liked what my older brother did and he listened Metallica and Tool. Then some of my friends started to listen Rammstein, Nightwish, Sentenced, Ensiferum, Moonsorrow and even Deicide etc. I was 12 yo at the time.

I started listening to metal in jr high. A older cousin gave away his tapes to his brother and I. I got some Metallica, Sepultura and Iron Maiden and then bought CD's.

I grew up with my parents playing zz-top, pink floyd, queen etc. It kind of developed from there. I started with bands like Metallica, Nirvana and Megadeth when I was 8-9 years old, then got into Dimmu Borgir, Cradle of filth and other "mainstream" bands by the time I was 13. What really got me interested in the darker sides of metal was actually when I first heard Darkthrones Soulside Journey. Must have been the year I was 13. From that point on there was only metal.

Honestly just got bored of the music I was listening to (I'd progressed from pop music to Marilyn Manson, Korn etc) and thought out of curiosity I'd check out metal. I just started to listen to everything. I probably got into Iron Maiden and Megadeth first and then just started to listen to heavier stuff.

I actually started with some pop and rock in the late 70's... then a friend from elementary school lend me a cassette that started it all for me: the number of the beast!! I immediately loved the fast and heavy guitars!!..... and the rest is history.

I initially got into metal through the popular 80s groups, especially Def Leppard and Van Halen. But when my friend recommended Noumena and Blood Stain Child, I knew that metal was something I needed to seriously consider.
And while I've tried to give other genres of music a chance, very few of them deliver masterpieces as consistently as metal does for me. There are consistently 9-level albums every year and, on a good year, maybe a 10 or two.

I used to just not listen to music at all. Then I found Dragonforce... mostly because the name sounded cool to my 13 year old tastes. I slowly progressed from there, going from power, to thrash, to gothenburg to death. I still have a soft spot for Dragonforce to this day, they introduced me to metal.

I downloaded Anathema's Weather Systems because I liked the album art and the review on Allmusic. That was probably the first rock album I've listened to. After that I downloaded their discography and after that I've been listening to metal almost exclusively.

Oh and it helped a bit that my dad had been occasionally listening to metallica's Master of Puppets and the Black album and he was the biggest fan of Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath.

But he didn't influence me a lot I think since when he was listening to those guys I was like 12 so I hated it. I mostly came by myself into metal.

I started with listening to Nu-Metal on the Radio in elementary school, mostly KoRn/Linkin Park type stuff. In middle school got more into it when my bro and friend got into Metallica. I admit I almost didn't like it as first as it wasnt as accessible as Nu-Metal but after a few months I ditched the Nu and exclusively listened to Metallica and Black Sabbath for like a year. Then one night on the internet me and my bro discovered that Metallica was only one of many "Metal" bands, blew our minds and have been a Metalhead ever since. Started with the old school 80's bands and then eventually branched into more modern extreme metal thanks to Children of Bodom(back before HCDR). The rest is history.

I think Metal is one of those things in your blood, when I listened to KoRn as a kid I got this indescribable adrenaline rush, most people get turned off by the stuff. At the same time Metal is bit of an aquired taste, Every time I get into a new genre there is always a learning curve and often I'll be exposed to something but will take several months before I go back and really get into it, like with Metallica the first time.

The film "xXx".

Rammstein is featured in the first scene. They are playing in a Russian underground club.

Rammstein was ever since my favourite metal band.

I guess Linkin Park when i was 9/10 years old if that's metal enough. Heard my brother listening to it and thought it was pretty fascinating how different it was to Eminem and all the other mainstream stuff I listened to back then. If not then Runescape - The Falador Massacre video on Youtube that came out in 2005. The song that was used was Nightwish - Planet Hell and was hooked to just that band for a long time. Next band was Scar Symmetry, then Epica, then Opeth. Those were my 4 bands. Found a dozen or so other metal bands until i stumbled upon this site in 2013 which lead me to really expand my horizons :3
