Personal text: I grew up in a tiny town here in Australia and have listened to metal since I was 10 years of age when a friend played The Number Of The Beast to me and I was immeately hooked. From there went on to Metallica, Slayer, Manowar, Celtic Frost, Candlemass etc in the mid 80's. Then discovered Bathory's Hammerheart album and loved how epic, grand and heartfelt his music was. Then moved onto My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost and remember purchasing a strange album named A Blaze In The Northern Sky and never knowing what to make of it. That would come years later. Mid 90's I found Amorphis, Bal Sagoth, Enslaved and rediscovered Darkthrone and how to understand black metal. Then found Emperor, Dimmu Borgir, Cradle Of Filth, Immortal etc. but have always had a soft spot for old school bands like Judas Priest, Motorhead, Rage etc. These days I listen to anything that sounds good to my ears from black, death, power, heavy, symphonic, gothic, doom, funeral doom etc. Thanx for reading.
