Well, I've been looking in the forum, but I couldn't find a topic like this one. Now that I finally got my 100 posts, I can create it . (Hope it wont be locked or deleted though).

I'd like to know when you guys have started to like metal. I think it reveals many things about people's personality, as in my opinion, Metal is not a kind of music you can listen to "by chance". I think there is a kind of... evolution, which eventually makes you listen to this music.

Personally, I started being into Metal only 3 years ago, in 2003, (which is kinda late,) thanks to Rammstein, I was about 14, but even then, I was more into Industrial and Rock. Even if I've been raised with a big brother who used to listen to classic Metal bands such as Iron Maiden and Metallica for instance, I've never thought I would regard myself as a "metalhead" one day.

I guess I wasn't mature enough to understand what Metal could really mean. But we all grow up. I've never really had a "happy" life, and I found in Metal things that helped me much. There were feelings I couldn't name, and Metal enabled me to understand more things about my own life and about people in general.
I think I wouldn't have started listening to this kind of music if I wasn't forced to leave the place I had been living in for years, for the second time. That special event, when I had to move and leave everything behind, made me start listening to Metal. And now i know i cant live without it.

Its your turn now , I'd like to know how and when you started listening to Metal. It might be really interesting I think, and I'm sure there is a lot to say .

Under twenty you're a kid and then you'll be a young adult until 30

When can I start calling you "old man"?

Well, it may sound funny, but when I was 13 I started listening to metal in an unorthodox way. I was searching Lord of the Rings videos on Youtube and I found one whose playback song was Sleeping Sun by Nightwish. And despite the fact that I did not know what kind of music I was listening to, I called it ''operatic rock''. Since then metal became a part of my life. In effect, I have to admit that I used to like classic rock and metal songs since my childhood. I just did not have the chance to discover them, because of the mainstream country I live in.

Started soooo long ago, 11 years, thanks to my best friend of childhood and games of the period. Already listened to some mainstream rock he introduced me to Scorpions, Kiss, Ozzy-time glam-(do not laugh, were other times, young men ...) but the real conversion came about thanks to a few months after Judas Priest. I was attracted to this music and their clothing was all leather and studs for a little boy something really cool! I found their music exciting and overwhelming right now and from there I have never stopped

Technically, I started with Transformers: The Movie. That soundtrack has some sweet metal on it. But I really didn't get into it until high school. That's when I started playing guitar, getting into Slayer and Cannibal Corpse, and Deicide, and playing in a band.

Well, here's my story. It's so awesome hearing what everybody else has to say on the matter.

I would say that my interest in rock started when I was 13. Before that, I would never touch any rock album, considering I was primarily listening to rap (before that, the hardest I had was, seriously, Fenix TX). I was pretty young and naive, and I just discovered the likes of Rancid (yeah, I was young back then, but I still like them a lot!), who seemed so crazy, hard, and powerful. In Middle School, I was around 13 when I became interested in the first metal band, Metallica. I grabbed Ride, Master, and their self titled and gave it a listen. Needless to say, I was blown away with how powerful the music I was listening to. Throughout the rest of middle school, I was listening to that, and it was all over. I had no interest in Bling Rap (thank god!). I was, at the point, a punker with a Metallica bent. It would lead me into being a life long Metal fanatic.

I won't give you my life story (don't worry!), but needless to say, by High School and age 14, I was swapping albums and favorites with friends who had a ton of background in Old School Death Metal and Thrash. I middled about my Freshman year with a lot of 70's and 80's hard rock (which I'm not a fan of any more, barring Led Zeppelin) and Punk Rock, but by 15 it was all over for me. I eased my way into Extreme Metal with the help of Slayer and a few Cannibal Corpse records. Then, I finally discovered Technical Death Metal at the tender age of 15. Thanks to Cryptopsy, Nile, Gorguts (Obscura was one of my favorites at only 15, heh), and a few others, I was hooked for life. There was also the likes of Old School Death Metal like Morbid Angel, who also ruled.

I'm 22 now, and needless to say I'm still listening to pretty much all of the metal bands I was introduced to. However, I'm expanding my tastes to this day, and I've never been happier with my musical tastes. Hopefully, someday, I'll be able to have thousands of metal albums under my belt, and enough knowledge of Metal history to fill a PhD's worth. Wish me luck.

My intro to metal was Dio's "Rainbow In The Dark" video on MTV around 1984. I was hooked within a couple months after that.
