What was the first metal band that you listened to that really made you get into metal?
Judas Priest in 1985. An old friend lended me a tape of their “Screaming for venageance ” album.
and that did ti for me….
idfc wut u people think of that either
darkest hour is amazing
actually, i started out with MCR’s 3 cheers for sweet revenge.
then, i was like, “there has to be more stuff than this”
and then i found the really good stuff
…i think it was metallica and a song i heard from caliban..
Well, when I first listened to Cannibal Corpse, it gave me a huge surge of power. It felt good
In 1988 i first heard Blind Guardian through a cousin of mine (I was 7 years old) and been a fan ever since. Im glad I got into them instead of Metallica
It was a couple compilation tapes I got. Had like Megadeth, Accept, Rush, Dio, Ozzy, and some others on them.
Well, I grew up on Deep Purple but in ‘78 my dad brought me home a Black Sabbath LP and that was it…I was hooked.
Black Sabbath and Zeppelin
system of down and tool
Deep Purple,Judas Priest,Black Sabbath
Pantera in 95 it blew me away,I had no idea there was stuff that intense and powerful,I heard “A New Level” and was like “what the f*ck was that!?” I fell in love
Metallica back when I was in grade one.
It was Iron Maiden when I recently re-discovered Metal.
well when i was like 9
my cousins were like listening to black sabbath,led zep,guns and roses,maryln mannsonyou know….bands from the 70’s and 80’s.so i was really into soo i listened to them and i thought they were so kick a**..so i started buying thier albums and i started like buying posters,shirts..etc…then i listened to SLAYER.omg OMG.he inspired me to be honset to pick up a guitar and play.i love him.i i was like whoaa,this type of music that really expresses how you feel
so yeah,i am so thankful for my cousins becuase if not for them…then ahh!!who knows what i would be right now.i love metal now,it’s my everything.im so glad you asked this question because now i can tell you guys why i am so thankful that metal is in my life.
I’d have to say Def Leppard in the 70’s!!! They paved the way for all the 80/90’s giants: Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Ratt, Cinderella… too many to name
I guess when I was about 10 I was listening to GN’R and Metallica. That’s where it all started for me.
Judas Priest. They were a local band, so I gave ‘em a shot and was hooked. Nearly 30 years later… Looking forward to the new album and tour.
Guns N’ Roses
Winger (laugh all you want, I love Kip!)
… and Van “Roth era” Halen, , no one rocked the loudest as Van Halen back in the day!!!
SOAD , and metallica
I saw the album cover for KISS Alive II and I was hooked.
probably growing up around all the 80’s hair metal my brother was listening to. my taste in music in heavily influence by my siblings and my parents….which is why i listen to and appreciate almost everything =]
i cant remember it being one particular band though, more of the conglomerate of all the bands of that era.
Guns N Roses.
I used to like poser punk… ( Simple Plan, GC, B182 ect) Then in grade 7 I went to my friends house and he put on some AC/DC. I didn’t like it at first but it grew on me and soon after I bought the Back In Black cd and all their other stuff and listened all the time. From them I progressed to Metallica, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. And from there I basically expanded to death metal and stuff.
motorhead or aild
The three rock bands I remember hearing at an early age were Led Zepplin, and KISS, followed by Alice Cooper and Queen. I couldn’t say which came first though!
black sabbath and metallica
system of a down and iron maiden
started with some New Wave Of American Heavy Metal bands
oh man their is a ton…well the firsts ones I got into were:
4. Judas Priest
5. Iron Maiden
6. White Zombie
8. Rage Against the Machine
Then I really started looking around and found some other great metal acts:
2. Angel Dust(German Power Metal Band)
4. Gamma Ray
5. Metal Church
personally ive been listening to metal for the past 16 years, basically since i was born,and love metal with a passion like no other. I got started on the early stuff- queen, kiss, OZZY,you know the good old stuff, but then i rediscovered metal in a new passion, what got me started again was- Killswitch Engage, Soilwork, Lamb Of God,and a favorite of mine FFDP (Five Finger Death Punch). Metal is more then just music to me, Its my life….
