Hi everyone! I have been a frequent visitor of Encyclopedia Metallum for a while (actually, quite some years!) and always found it a very important source for anything metal. So I finally decided to join.

A little quick about me: I currently live in Sweden, where I was also born, but I grew up in Italy. I started to listen to metal in my childhood and later teens, first "passively" through my older cousin and later on by my own choice. I used to study languages and historical linguistics at university, specialised in Scandinavian/Nordic languages (yeah, sounds kind of nerdy). Luckily I met quite a few metalhead in my field!

Regarding metal, for many years I stuck mainly to trash and classic metal, than I started to explore the Metal universe discovering new genres, bands and styles. I still like trash and classic of course, having added doom (especially death/doom and funeral doom) and death to my favourite genres. Recently I have started to descend the dark path into the abyss.....i.e. I gave black metal a serious shot (so far, so good!). Favourite bands include (early) Metallica, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Grand Magus, Motörhead, Candlemass, Enslaved, Behemoth, Rotting Christ, Opeth, Arkona etc.

I know I will enjoy here, so...bye and Stay metal!!

Greetings,
I have been visiting here for a long time before I decided to create an account and join in. I am from Turkey and I'm a high school student. I discovered heavy metal about 3 years ago by listening to Rammstein. After listening to the classics for a few months, I started to explore the actual stuff, that is, extreme forms of metal. I started out with Haggard, Septicflesh and Rotting Christ. Then I dived deep into black metal since it gave me the diabolic, yet beautiful spirit I wanted in metal music. I am also a loyal classical music lover since my childhood and I like symphonic metal bands too.
My favourite bands are (not including the classics) Burzum, Rotting Christ, Septicflesh, Haggard, Opeth, Peste Noire, Death, Nile, Nargaroth, Gorgoroth, Be'lakor...
Goodbye everyone, hail Satan!

Hi, I'm SuspendedAnimaniac, I am yet another guy who has been lurking around here for years but never bothered making an account here until now. The funny thing is that I used to listen to nu metal when it was way, way past its relevancy as well as metalcore and post-hardcore when I was as a young teen, thank God I never went through a scene phase. But as I grew older I wanted heavier and more sophisticated music, I got introduced to bands such as Cannibal Corpse and Dimmu Borgir in high school, and from there on it blew everything else I listened to at the time out of the water. Opening my ears and the urge to discover more bands is what brought me here to Metal Archives. I currently live in the unsavory inland part of southern California, and while the vast majority of music I hear blasting out of loudspeakers or car subwoofers is either rap or top 40's, I do on rare occasions see some other metalheads. My younger brother listens to Sabaton and Powerwolf, and as far as I know, they are the only metal bands he listens to, I have even went with him to see Sabaton (feel free to roast me) and Kreator in LA at The Wiltern in 2018.

Literally just been pointed here from another forum, got a wide and varied taste in metal and all the myriad of sub genres. Most recently dusted off my vinyl copy of Morbid Visions for blasting out at home. My commute to work playlist currently has Tomahawk, Hexes and Wagdug among others.

Enjoy good debates and calling shit when I see it.

Hello,

I hail from Trinidad and Tobago. I've been coming on this site for years looking at reviews to see if a band's album is worth listening to and decided to make an account. I like Symphonic, Folk and Power. I also like bunnies. :)

Hi everyone, I've been around - mostly using the archives themselves, not exactly the forum - for quite a long time, since 2003 to be specific. I posted a few times here and there, but seldom use the forum, and I think I owe a proper introduction.

I'm from Brazil (don't know if there are many fellow Brazilians here), not exactly a musician - I just goof on a drum kit when I have the chance, never had formal classes, or any classes for that matter - but a hardcore fan of a lot of metal subgenres. I plan to use the forum more often and catch up with the newest topics, but along the lines of "listen more, say less" until I feel confidence enough to share anything.

Cheers!

I'm from Southern California. I've lurked the archives for years. I figured maybe I would actually start talking to people here as well.

Cheers!

Greetings!

Apparently, I forgot how much time ago I registered myself in this forum.
Anyway, I've been pleased to use the archives since I was a fresh and inexperienced metalhead, and I found them extremely useful. They've been a blessing to me: growing up in a small and insignificant town in northern Italy, right in the middle of what I call "the Un-rock Singularity" (an area where anything remotely linked with rock and its heavier forms is almost unheard of), I had no other way but the Internet to get what I desperately needed, and still need: metal, of almost any kind. Every sub-genre has some bands I like, though I must admit that thrash and death are the least loved kids in the family. But this is not a rule: with some commitment, I found some bands or records I love even there (Vektor and old Dark lunacy, to name a couple).
Now, I decided to take a step forward and starting to write here, hoping to have a good time and always find new bands and records to fall in love with.

See you around.

P.S: please forgive my english. It can be awful at times. I promise I'll try to improve it.

Hi, I'm MickeyLightning. Another long time lurker that has finally decided to register and take part in the discussion. I'm from India and currently reside here but I've also spent about 5 years in the United States (where my Texas folks at?). I've been into metal since about a decade now. Just set up a last.fm today so check that out if you want - https://www.last.fm/user/MickeyLightning

As far as metal goes, I listen to a lot of death and thrash. I also listen to some black, doom and sludge from time to time. Currently obsessed with Infester and Incantation. Apart from metal, I'm into video games, TV shows, and movies, AKA the usual stuff.

Looking forward to posting here more often and eventually getting around to writing reviews.

Greetings,

I used to post here a few years ago as Lowtide85, but drifted away from Metal for a while as I explored other music styles from around the world. I also must admit having and ideological breakdown recently that made realize I shouldn't reject something I love because of what others deem to be right or wrong.

My favorite genre is Black Metal and it's pretty much the only one I listen to (when young though I listened to plenty of Maiden and Symphonic Metal).

Hopefully I'll stay longer this time.

Hey! I'm Claire, a (still somewhat new compared to others) metalhead defying the stereotype that teenagers only listen to crappy mainstream pop and rap! I'm 5 minutes new here but decided to join so I can finally talk about metal (and maybe rock?) to people that actually either know what I'm talking about or listen to the genre. Favorite subgenres would have to be power metal and as of recently, death metal. Jamming out to death metal is my new way to de-stress after a long day...

Anyways, nice to meet you all and rock on :metal:
