What band/song got you into metal ?

So how did you guys get used to the dissonant distorted guitars and harsh vocals ?

for me I think I got into prog rock and 70s heavy metal through Guitar Hero and Rock Band (heavy metal bands like black sabbath, etc...), which got me into shit like avenged sevenfold and bullet for my valentine and tool. After that I moved to Opeth and they're the band that broke my cherry for harsh vocals.

First song with harsh/growls vocals that I got into :



think I was about 12 or 13 years old.

how bout u ?

This is the first metal song I can recall hearing that really spoke to me.

o yea metallica was a big one for me too. wouldn't consider those vocals to be particularly harsh though, which is what I think most people can't handle (growls and screams).

Re: What band/song got you into metal ?

Metal in general? Black album

for death/black/etc... Carcass-Symphonies of Sickness.

For me there wasn't an adjustment period really beyond Metallica. I just liked how it all sounded.

Re: What band/song got you into metal ?

As far back can remember I was always surrounded by heavy music because I had 2 older sisters in high school during the hair metal/grunge scenes. I think Metallica and White Zombie were the bands that I liked the most because they were some the heavier bands my sisters listened to and I was really into darker, heavier music because they seemed more taboo. When I saw Cannibal Corpse on Ace Ventura and Morbid Angel on Beavis and Butthead I was extremely interested in them because they were much heavier than anything I've ever heard.

Re: What band/song got you into metal ?

I got into metal when I was around 7-8 years old after watching MTV2, along with a lot of pop-punk and grunge and hard rock. So right at the peak of Nu-metal.

This is the first video I can remember seeing and was probably my first introduction to proper distorted guitars:



Although I do remember seeing the God of Emptiness video on Beavis and Butthead at like 6am and being completely freaked out.

Re: What band/song got you into metal ?

My first metal record was the black album, I´m not sure when I heard metal for the first time. I honestly don´t know. I know that I was in fifth or sixth grade and I roughly know that I migrated from Nirvana, the Offspring, Bloodhound Gang, it was probably Metallica but actually I remember that I kinda liked this shitty German fun metal cover band J.B.O. in the very beginning?! So bad, fucking hell, but that might be the first band that got me interested in actual metal.

If they spent as much time practicing their instruments as they do swinging their hair they might actually be good.

That's to notate progression, btw. Not some kind of hierarchy.

Borrowed a White Zombie CD from my dad. Eventually stumbled across black metal on the internet, then later acquired a taste for death, which I now greatly prefer over black.

Re: What band/song got you into metal ?

CKY was the band that did it for me. The band that came before CKY, Foreign Objects, even more so. That Math/tech/rock/metal band made me appreciate what a "riff" was, and after looking into their influences, I came about to the death metal bands we all know and love.

My best friend growing up was super into Metallica, and I would listen to it but I wouldn't say that that's the band that made me love metal. It sounds unbelievable but Lack of Comprehension was the song that set it off for me. I feel pretty lucky to have bypassed all the mainstream bullshit that people note as being the "best metal band" (black sabbath/iron maiden/metallica) and gone straight to the good shit. I get what those bands did for the music and its evolution, but the amount they affected me personally is nowhere near the level of which Foreign Objects and Death influenced me. Plus, metallica and black sabbath were for the fuckin dirty alternative kids that unfortunately infested each and every guitar class in my high school.

Re: What band/song got you into metal ?

Dad's classic rock > some Seattle > Mudvayne > Fear Factory/Bolt Thrower/Carcass/Dimmu Borgir/CoF > everything else exponentially.

Heard an early CoF track and an Iced Earth song in my childhood but it was too heavy/scary then.
