Depends if you count Skid Row or not... Assuming not, then I would say 27 years since ...And Justice for All was released.

I always heard AC/DC and stuff like that on the radio, but never really "listened to metal" or realized it was something I liked better than most other music until age 9.

I've been listening to metal, among many other styles, for almost 36 years, but for the last 5, 85% of what i listen is extreme metal.
I think it's weird, the older i get the more i like...

I started to listen to metal/rock properly when I stumbled across "Tommy Vance Friday Rock Show" on the radio back around 1984, been addicted to metal/rock since then.

I started listening less than two years ago, I'm able to trace it back to September 2014 from one of my old forums. As a child I listened to tons of nu-metal like Linkin Park, Disturbed, etc because my dad listened to those, but I never went any further. I could never get into the 80's metal, and to this day I still can't. But I was trying to jump ship from a sinking electronic music scene, and was desperate to go to other genres. One of my all-time favorite electronic groups, Pendulum, made a (surprisingly good) collab with In Flames. So I dived in headfirst to Come Clarity and was hooked.

It's funny seeing my old posts, referring to Amorphis and Wintersun as "pretty alright" and I only listened to In Flames, Soilwork, Arch Enemy, Machine Head, and The Unguided. I still really like the first four.

I didn't listen to metal back then. I didn't claim they were metal, I just said they opened the window for me to metal. Same aggression and distorted riffs as metal. Now I listen to metal.

Please knock off the condescending attitude. You are judging me for what I listened to when I was 8 years old, and saying that what I listened to back then means I don't listen to metal now, even though I don't really listen to nu-metal any more. If I wanted my entire taste to be invalidated based on one or two bands, let alone two bands I listened to when I was fucking EIGHT, I would have gone to the Metal Archives or any of my old forums. EDIT: Misunderstanding, cleared up now.

It's cool. I figured that there might have been a bit of confusion from both sides. I interpreted your "But I'm glad you want listen to metal" as an "aww, that's cute that you think you listen to metal" when you didn't intend that, since that's the attitude I'm used to from the metal community.

I'm glad we can clear it up, in MS we're all friends here

I've been listening to metal for over a year and, not to be a boisterous jerk, my knowledge of metal surpasses that of my metalhead friends who have listened for 5+ years.

I have been listening since December 2009 or July 2009 if you count this band as metal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iY6BOGNHfJk I was 15 back then, 22 now, so it has been 7 years since I discovered metal.

I've been listening for 30 years or so. I got hooked when I heard Live After Death. My brother had it mixed in with all of his hair bands in his cassette collection. Absolutely loved the cover art on that. Shortly thereafter, I bought Somewhere in Time. I've kinda been all over the place with metal. Started with traditional, then thrash, then progressive, then death, then black, and finally some of the more obscure genres. I've got quite the collection of albums/EPs/Singles somewhere around 3500 total. It started as cassettes (none of which I have anymore), then CDs (still have a lot of these), and now I buy a mix of physical and digital albums depending on availability. I'd say my favorite genres are thrash and progressive metal (all forms), but old school death metal is still up there. My wife says I need help and she could be right, but I enjoy it.
