PostSubject: Your Music History   Sun Aug 09, 2009 6:13 am

Okay so we do this from time to time and we are going to do it again. Time for some general profiling.

Where did your musical journey first begin? Was it always metal since the beginning? How did your tastes change as time went on? What is your musical history?
And lastly, what are some bands you really like that you want to mention? Is there a particular kind of music you are enjoying the most recently?
Also any stuff about CD collecting, finding other metal friends, and of course instrumentation is great.

Pretty much my dad listened to rock and metal so growing up as a kid I heard some of the stuff like Rush, Megadeth, and Iron Maiden, among others. I remember when I was REALLY REALLY young most of the stuff I wasn't really that into unless it had some kind of like a melody. I remember I liked this song by Rush...
Rush - Red Barchetta
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAvQSkK8Z8U
-I still like this and other Rush songs to this day. I first remember this song from when I was really really young like I might not have even been in Elementary school.

Also...
Rush - Limelight
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwXjnVICb3I

---Emergency---
Okay I don't know how this has slipped my mind for so long but...this song is INSANE!
Rush - YYZ
http://www.imeem.com/artists/rush/music/Lh0ffml9/rush-yyz/
-For a very long time the beginning of this song was the most insane thing I knew about and it still ranks up there pretty high. The rest of the song is good but to me the beginning is special.
---Emergency---end

On my mom's side of things I first liked this one band...I don't know what it is called by I know the guy was doing really well and committed suicide. It was like a reggae love kind of music. Eventually she pretty much listened to Slipknot, Slipknot, Slipknot, and like Disturbed and a couple others. The first song I really really liked I was probably about 8 or something...
Slipknot - Left Behind
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVNpAO-SMBE
-Still good.

Two other songs I liked a lot were...
Disturbed - Down With the Sickness
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzdeH6MaNVI
-Still good.

Disturbed - Prayer
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wrw5bFhZoW8
-Still good.


So in the 6th grade I started to go onto Launch, which is a music thing Yahoo! has. I would listen to music there and I pretty much just explored. I ran into Slipknot and I honestly didn't know the name of the band, I thought it was Slit Mark but when I saw Slipknot it made sense and I immediately knew what it was. I also listened to Papa Roach and Power Man 5000 mostly because I heard them in a Gran Turismo game (the second one).

I remember I heard Nile's Sarcophagus and I didn't even know what I was listening to but it sounded damn heavy. I knew it was good but for some reason didn't feel like coming back to it.

I stumbled across...
Cradle of Filth - Fire Still Burns
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LM6mGZtl3o
...and I was immediately hooked. It was by far the heaviest and darkest music I had heard. So yeah pretty much I listened to Cradle of Filth for like all of Middle School, starting in the sixth grade. I also listened to a little bit of Dimmu Borgir. I honestly didn't figure out this was a cover song until like...f***...a really really long time later lol. This is still one of my favorite Cradle of Filth songs, despite being a cover. I really like this song.

In 8th grade I got turned onto Between the Buried and Me and Unearth and started listening to a lot of metalcore up until the 10th grade. I don't know when or how it started but somehow I started getting really into death metal and just like all kinds of death metal bands in the 10th-11th grades. I also started listening to more traditional black metal music. In 12th grade I expanded in every direction and I continue to do so today.

Currently I'm in a bit of a stalemate as to what my musical direction is. Despite knowing bands like Wormphlegm and ColdWorld and the such, I desire more. I need music that is more intense in *ALL* directions. Angry, desolate, beautiful, melancholy, heavy, all at the same time...or something like that. It might even have to be something that isn't metal (but don't take that in a scary way). Or maybe I just need some Red Barchetta for now...

Well, this story is going to be quite a long one. I want to try to put all of the key aspects of my musical tastes into the story.

but, before I start, I want to give you +rep because I love these kinds of thought inducing threads and because I thoroughly enjoyed reading your story and listening to the tracks you posted.


When I was really young, about the time I was 8 or 9, music was not in my life. I grew up in a family that has strong southern roots, so I heard a lot of country music and bluegrass when I was growing up, as well as classic blues rock. For me music was goofy and I didn't understand why people thought so highly of it.

But when I got into the forth grade, about the time I was 9 or so, I had to get myself up in the mornings to catch the school bus because my parents both had to go into work in the very early hours of morning. I would wake up and shower and get ready for school, but my alarm was always set for long before I needed to wake up. I would then lay down out on my living room couch and listen to a small potable radio because god knows there is nothing on TV at six a.m. I listened to what everyone else listened to though. I turned it onto our local hits station, which played a solid mixture of mainstream rock and other pop music. It was through that experience as a child that I discovered that music was one of the most pure forms of entertainment, because I realized that every song you heard was different. I was never really partial to one group at this point, I just listened and heard all the different styles and how diverse each group sounded. Now of course, I realize now that most mainstream bands are not diverse, but as a newcomer to music I thought everything was something special.

The next year, when I was a fifth grader, I joined our local orchestra as a result of this newfound form of entertainment.

A few years later, about the time I was in the sixth grade, I was slowly evolving into the music lover I am today. By this point, I was enjoying the harder side of rock. I listened to a hard rock station that played a lot of heavier rock, such as Tool, A Perfect Circle, Stone Temple Pilots, Three Days Grace, Godsmack, etc. The thing about this music was it got boring really quick. I had learned that a lot of the bands have a very similar formula for their songs, and I desired something more diverse. My dad was still a huge music fan, and by listening to some key bands he listened to I found my first big love of music in Classic Rock. AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Boston, REO Speedwagon, The Scorpions, stuff like that. It all sounded so unique, and I fell in love with it. I loved all kinds of music that had good guitars and excellent songwriting. But, it was not until I discovered The Doors that I truely became a music lover like I am today. I discovered The Doors on the radio. I heard the song "Break on Through", and it sounded amazing to me. I loved how the keyboards sounded in a song like that, and I needed more. So, I got their two disc greatest hits album and listened to it over and over and over until I memorized every lyric and every change in each song.

They were pretty much the band that sparked it all. I know for a fact that my life would not be the same if I would not have found this band.

Here are a few of my absolute favorites from this band

Love Street - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_LbXMxWlEw
Yes, The River Knows - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i27t5txCrwg
The End - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHFK1yKfiGo
Peace Frog/Blue Sunday - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Pt39MV19hc


After I found The Doors, I started learning about every band considered classic rock. Among my favorites are Queen, Hall & Oates, Dio, Tom Petty, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Blue Oyster Cult, Duran Duran, and The Eagles. This kind of music was my diet of music until this past fall, along with classical music, the blues, older country, rock & roll, and jazz.

Iron Maiden

2 Minutes to Midnight - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cE4FHolkO94
Flight of Icarus - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vt3zdoLO-pM


Blue Oyster Cult

I Love the Nights - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izjl-FODymg
Astronomy - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xXEtO3bEe0


As I had been working up to the fall of 2008, I had been gradually getting into bands that were heavier, but that generally were more melodic. I despised "screamo" as I called it, and I grouped everything together that had growling or screaming vocals. I was listening to things like Saxon, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Anthrax, and Motley Crue, but I wanted more. I started exploring for obscure 80's metal bands, and while exploring I discovered the band HammerFall. This was around October of last fall. After HammerFall, I learned about the genre of Power Metal, and I started vigorously searching for any and all things power metal, because to me it was 80's music that thrived in Europe. Soon after that I found out about the metal forums here thanks to Dave's excellent "Fastest Guitar Solos" video and it escalated drastically until now. Brute was the one who finally turned me on to grownling vocals, along with Daves video. The "Follow the Reaper" solo on their kicked my ass and I made a huge effort to like Children of Bodom. Now I'm listening to everything from power metal, to melodic death metal, to symphonic metal, to viking metal.

I hate to say it, but I've only been into metal later than 1992 for about a year. But I'm glad I started to enjoy music, because now I love any and all things metal, not just the 80's metal. Here are some of the most important bands I've discovered in the past year.

Nightwish - Amaranth
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdZn7k5rZLQ

Sonata Arctica - My Land
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEkeAvFeuLw

Children of Bodom - Follow the Reaper
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4mvcfBwCNQ

Ensiferum - Wanderer
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKZd4U397M4

Equilibrium - Blut Im Auge
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yom8nNqmxvQ

Wintersun - Battle Against Time
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vs5727QFhtw



For now, I'm just looking for everything. I love music, and I always want more to love. I'm trying to expand even more, and I think it's working. But I don't know what my go to music is. I listen to classic rock on a regular basis, as well as viking metal, death metal, and power metal. I think I'm finally reaching the point where I have a love for all things music, and where I'm not just into one style at a time

Slept for about 2 hours so I'll keep this short
At first I liked whatever was on the radio, basically parent music
WHen I was about 13 I started listening to Sum 41 a whole lot. I bought their cds, watched their videos, memerized their songs, try to find symbolism that wasn't there. You know, that good stuff.

This eventually led me to start loving the following similar bands : Blink 182, Gob, and Billy Talent. Eventually my tv watching days led me to the band Alexisonfire which was very heavy to me at the time. I remember I thought Try Honestly by Billy Talent was on of the most hardcore songs to ever be played on television. Ohhh young BYD.
This is how I knew of music then, I saw its music video on tv and if I liked it, I would buy the album and hope there is more than 2 good songs. Then I heard BYOB by system. I was amused, but not absorbed.

Upon entering high school I met a lot of new people who were interested in music. Many of them were highly interested in metal and in particular SOAD. My friend wrote down her favourite system songs on a piece of paper and for nights on end I tried to download them on a horrible downloading program called WinMX. If I was able to download 2 songs in an hours worth of searching, it was a great success. After about a week or two I had systems newest album called Mezmerize. After listening to this numerous times I knew I was no longer a pop punk fan, but a metalhead. After exhausting all possible fun with system-analyizing, singing, bringing it everywhere with me, buying shirts, posters, I got into a crazy genre called "power metal"

Four years ago nobody said "power metal" or at least I never heard it. My friend sent me a youtube link to a DDR video game and the music was Fury of the Storm-Dragonforce. I found it to be incredibly attractive as I love the sound of an adventurous song and the video game feel. After listening to that video repeatedly, I decided to download their music as well. I would listen to the songs and the entire time I would just was for the inevitable 3-6 minute solo waiting for me. I truly enjoyed listening to dragonforce daily, but it was a lesser joy that I am not proud of currently. Because of this band you guys are here today. If I didn't get this obsession with guitar solos (that DF caused) my youtube channel would not have gotten very popular, and if it didn't get popular I wouldn't have made a forum knowing that nobody would join. So dragonforce essentially is the reason this exists.

Three years ago is when I decided that I should be catching up with the older metal. I started downloading crazy bands like Iron Maiden, and Metallica, and some Guns N Roses and Slayer. I quickly became very attached to Maiden and Metallica, and even learned that the rap song "Lets go" was a spin off of Ozzy Osbourne's Crazy Train. I became very fond of marvels such as "One" and "Dance of death"
And here came Guitar hero 2. The soul video game that causes 90% of the hate on my youtube channel. Because of its appeal to mainstream I am constantly accusing of using this videogame as my source for musical knowledge.

In the past two years- ironically is hardest for me to remember. I began spreading my musical knowledge. The bands that most significantly impacted me are the following: In flames, Ensiferum, Wintersun, Blind Guardian, Iced Earth, Kalmah, Dream Theater, Amon Amarth, Lamb of God, Sonata Arctica. The bolded ones captured me most. I still remember when I would kill for Sonata Arctica, until that new album came out.

I'm sure you don't want to read more so I'll stop now. That didn't turn out to be as short as I had planned

I've been a metalhead for about 6 year in my opinion, but 5 of those years was strictly classic metal. Glam Metal, Thrash Metal, etc

A lot of people wouldn't consider me a metalhead for that. But now I listen to tons of different genres that I pretty much just learned about

Sounds like we all started with more well-known bands. I'm not sure what the first underground band I liked even was. I remember what turned me onto black metal now though, it was Marduk. First time I heard Marduk I loved it and it helped me adapt to other black metal bands that were more difficult to get into.

I practice guitar almost every day for about an hour. I've been doing this for a few weeks and have been getting better. It's a lot of fun. I never took a class and started with an electric guitar. My dad has shown me some things like alternate picking and the power chord and some basic stuff like that. I ask him questions sometimes like if I should keep picking alternately even when I move from one string to another and he says yes so I do it. Sometimes I ask him to teach me a riff. He taught me some cool ones like...
Van Halen
Yngwie Malsteem
Slayer
Mercyful Fate

I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with the guitar but I think it is good to learn even if after a year I have to wear oven mitts it'll still be worth it. I'll be bringing my guitar to college when I move in.

Hmm wow musical history this ought to be a fun one to tell lol.
Basically for the first numerous years of my life I listened to alot of country music because that's what was on the radio and "appropriate" for my parents to let me listen to down here. I never really paid attention to it though until I was in 5th and 6th grade when I started to control what I listened to a bit more. I only listened to the radio though and prefered softer rock and pop songs stuff like Maroon 5 and the All American Rejects. It wasn't that I didn't like music I just really didn't care that much. In 6th I started to develop a taste for "heavier" music jamming bands like Creed alot with my friends and I remember hearing Linkin Park for the first time and it scaring the s*** out of me lol.

In 7th grade I actually started to really like music Seether was the first band I really loved (I still own all of their albums and have seen them live twice.) Besides Seether I really got into pop punk like Green Day, My Chemical Romance, ect. All of which I still really like.

In the 9th grade was when I had my first real encounter with metal. A guy in one of my classes introduced me to Lamb of God, Slipknot, Marilyn Manson, Pantera, Nine Inch Nails. Somewhat standard fair for babies first metal but goddamn it was brilliant to me at the time. As well he told me about bands like Slayer and Black Sabbath.

I spent the first two years of my metal fandom exploring on my own via magazines and Headbangers Ball (which didn't suck at the time) and listening to more melodic metalcore and some black metal. All the while I still enjoyed alot of alt rock, classic rock, post hardcore, pop punk whatever I could find really. Because of all of this my musical taste was rather opened and varied. I randomly began to discover bands like Iron Maiden, Slayer, King Diamond that would become some of my favorites.

In 11th grade I found metalhorde.net and met Kur and Dies Irae along with others and my metal tastes began to evolve from there.

Last year was when I really started to "hone in" I suppose on my love of black metal due in large part to my friend Amy and working on Circle of Destruction.

Just recently I've really started to re-explore my love of punk and thats where I'm at now lol.

It was an awkward transition when I look at it now

i guess i have been into metal for over 20 years and my first favorites were

ozzy - the ultimate sin
megadeth - peace sells
metallica - master of puppets
i bought them when they first came out in 1986

and before that i was obsessed with jimi hendrix

i went through a pretty huge punk phase for about 5 years and still like a lot of punk.

i never really just discovered black metal i didn't even know it was called that for years but i have always been a huge king diamond fan and i've always liked evil so it was a natural progression

Yeah King Diamond is pretty much god : O I sort of wandered my way into most genres of metal on my own and had some guidence from there lol. I guess thats why I'm such a big fan of listing and newbie threads. I just realized how totally unspecific mine was but oh well lol I'm a bad writer.

The guitar magazines are really mainstream
They keep saying "Trivium, Lamb of God, Bullet for my valentine, and Children of bodom" are going to "own" the future of metal

bands like that just seriously do not hold my interest. very one dimensional but the mags are right because that's what the masses want to hear. bodom is the best one of that bunch just cause that dude is so ridiculous on guitar but the style kinda get old after like 3 songs. his intro shreds are really the best parts of the songs usually

Yeah I used to be a big COB fan. But really, in comparison to their monster song Kissing the Shadows, everything else sucks. That is the only song with endless energy, the rest of the time the great guitars don't compensate for the headache giving vocals

First rock of any genre I liked was punk rock, namely greenday and sum 41, then AC/DC and other classick rock and eventually Metallica and it branched out from there. Too tired to do a full bio.

i'm also thinking Horn from Germany is gonna put out a monster album next. each previous release has been progressively better and better. naturkraft was the latest and it was massive but the sound just needs to be tightened up and he needs to stop with the random songs with english lyrics.

My music life is like a old road , it has lots of bumps .. As far as i can remember music has alwas been in my home , My mother was a big fan of Creedence Clearwater Revival . the rolling stones , Elvis Presley and the beatles so music was alwas going in my home , On my 8th birthday i got a fisher table top stereo and 2 records . blast off from k - tel and black sabbath we sold out soul for rock and roll . I was in love , The darkness , and power of sabbath was everything to me , My brother hooked me up with kiss , ac/dc , and JUDAS PRIEST !After that it was all down hill , I got hooked on this new thrash band in the early 80s and guess what im still a SLAYER fan .

It all started with The Beatles, my dad showing me them in the car, then I listened to such artists as Tom Petty and Creedence and Sabbath and The Beach Boys up till I was 10. Then I heard the great tunes of Mountain, changing my life forever. I started getting heavier and heavier, first finding Slayer and listening to them non stop until I found a band called Job for A Cowboy, who, back then, was brutal. I started with As I Lay Dying and Such artists and when I found Necrophagist, it just got me into other things. That's the short history of it.
