In 12 days time I will have been listening to metal for 34 years.


And yet you still know fuck all na good effort, very impressive. Has it been relatively the same genre or all genre's through out, or has it varied through the years ? i'm guessing the latter.

What do you think? I started out with Kiss and Scoripins and such back in 1979 and am currently listening to SOlothus on the stereo, just compare them to the first two bands

Might as well say i have been listening to metal for 18 years, started listening to NOFX and the Misfits at 12 and now am listening to things Gris and Trist.
Be solid if anyone on here had been purely dedicated to the black metal scene or something for a straight 20 years.

NOFX and the Misfits were punk whereas Kiss and Scorpions were metal at the time, even though people call them hard rock now. And they are more related to current day metal than NOFX, Misfits and such. People in metal only started listening to Misfits due to Metallica wearing their shirts and later on covering them. Btw also listened to motorhead back in 1979 and Saxon and a year later of course Iron Maiden when their debut album was released.

Sorry for misunderstanding you, I thought you wanted to say Kiss and Scorpions ahd nothing to do with metal But yes, it is totally diferent from what I listen to now even though I do listen to pre-1980 Scorpions quite a lot and Kiss only some live stuff nowadays.

Hm... somewhere between 5 and 6 years, though the first year some people would question me about (most of) the bands being metal But I find it pretty amusing(and somewhat cool) that some of the first bands that I listened to all the way back then were Bloodbath and Daath.

I started with rock actually: Rick Springfield, Alice Cooper, Billy Squier, Van Halen, Black Sabbath (this is metal), etc. Late 70's.
80's with NWOBHM, thrash golden days, very little death metal (Death, Obituary), crossover...
90's with grunge, nu metal, rap metal.
00's with...... umm.......... well, several metal sub-genres.... not quite a fan of extreme/noise metal, though; I'm more into the melodic type of metal.
Currently I still listen to all these types of rock / metal, except the early ones (Springfield, Squier, Cooper). But I'm always open to hear new stuff.

I have been listening since I was a freshman in high school. Anddd....... now I am a junior. xD Yea not too impressive. Regardless I started with Wintersun, which led to Ensiferum, which led to Amon Amarth, which led to Dark Tranquillity and many other bands. Then a few months ago I found Caladan Brood, which brought me into the black metal scene. From Caladan Brood of course I found Summoning, then Agalloch, and now tons of tiny little underground atmospheric black metal bands haha.

About 9 years when i was a young teen. Was first introduced into Rock/hard rock/blues by my Dad which he always had Uriah heep/Black sabbath/Cream/Led zepplin playing in the background.

Out of those I was drawn to Black sabbath for their "unique, heavy doomy" sound that none other bands tried to do in the early 70's.

From there the rest is history

I know the exact date I started liking metal, due to the fact the first time I remember hearing metal and liking it, was hearing "Can I Play With Madness" on the UK Top 40 chart show, which was on every Sunday here in the UK. That song was a new entry (at number 4) into the top 40, on the 26th of March in 1988. So that was the exact date I became a metal fan.

More or less from when I was a highschool girl about 16 or 15 when I happen to find Master of Puppets, and for a long time I was confined to some few albums, but before that I was so into pinkfloyd, scorpions, guns n roses

Exactly after 2 years, i popped up in the world.

My sober date of getting into metal was on 26th March 2000 when my dad handed me over Black Sabbath's Paranoid.

10 years roughly. That's counting it as an active genre I purchase from rather than just the first time I heard a bit of metal.

I started listening to metal in about 1992 when I was 12 y.o. - so for about 21 years.

Started off on glam and thrash (1992-present), then alternative (1993-present), then Melodic Death Metal/Power Metal (1999- present) and then Death Metal (2000- present) and Black Metal (a total of 3 years in mid-2000s before I realised only "Black Metal" I liked was Cradle of Filth and Dimmu Borgir )

These days it's a bit of anything provided it's got riffs and vibe,
