    No, though I did recently party with the Kingslayer. That particular evening I couldn't make it out. Next thing I'm planning on going to in Cowtown is Amon Amarth.


    I'll be there as well, see you there if we connect.

    Hey! My name's Trapper, and I've been wanting to go on what I can only think of as BOATQUEST since it was first announced back in 2010. The money and line up finally, well, lined up this year... and I'm fucking stoked! It should be one hell of a party!

    City/country:
    Savannah, GA

    Age (optional):
    26

    What first got you into metal?
    Metallica was the first band I started listening to, then I randomly heard "Battlefield" by Blind Guardian in a fan made music video and it just kind of struck me. I've been completely hooked ever since.

    Play any instruments?
    Guitar, primarily, though I sing tenor 2 when I randomly find myself in barbershop groups, and I dabble with keys and percussion.

    Top 5 bands?
    Blind Guardian
    Dream Theater
    Ayreon
    Tyr
    This spot changes constantly, but right now, I think it would be safe to say Amorphis

    What do you do?
    IT Monkey.

    What deck are you on?
    Deck 7. 7372, played the lottery this year, as I could only get one friend to go with me and a two person room was simply more expensive than us booking separately.

    What's a creepy thing I can say when I see you that no stranger should know and will weird you out that I do?
    Make a Dark Tower AND a Dune reference in the same sentence. Should be an interesting challenge.

    Wassup everybody! 2015 Will be the first time not only do I board, but first time in my young life I trave far away for a metal show outside my state! Haha cant wait to meet many people, but seeing is my first time here goes nothing.




    City/country:
    Los Angeles California

    Age (optional):
    22

    What first got you into metal?
    2003. I was in middle school in computer class when I discovered a random video file. It turned out to be Metallica St. Anger music video. I thought it was so good at the time even though I had alredy sort of heard the likes of System of A Down , Korn, & Rage Against The Machine. I figured I stick to Metallica, discovered their discography backwards and the rest is history. I then ventured into death metal, power metal, and black metal. Now I enjoy quite a lot from all those and have since disliked Nu Metal lol.

    Play any instruments?
    Not professionally but I can play "amateurishly" drums, violin, and trumpet.

    Top 5 bands?
    Death
    Bathory
    Mercyful Fate/King Diamond
    Emperor
    Sodom



    What do you do?
    I work part time at Universal Studios Hollywood. 3 years and counting. Outside of work I dont go to school. I then spend time with my family, go to shows, and just have a good time when I can.

    What deck are you on?
    Deck 7 Cabin Number 7598

    What's a creepy thing I can say when I see you that no stranger should know and will weird you out that I do?
    I organize my music by their album release, put lyrics on itunes, and cover art, IDK? Lol

    I guess we have Baldielocks (KevinP on the forum, though he doesn't come here anymore methinks) to thank for that . It started way back in the early days of the forum.

    Yea I find Death & Bathory almost a tie when it comes to great albums despite different genres and Bathory having more albums.

    Oh okay thanks for the heads up! :cheers:

    Age (optional):
    28

    What first got you into metal?
    It started with what is know as "mexican national rock" which was fairly common where I grew up. This was the door that opened up a world of music for me. From there I got into classic rock, then into thrash metal, and eventually into the vast number of metal sub-genres.

    Play any instruments?
    Sadly, no. I did try to learn guitar once but never really kept at it, so I never learned. I'd like to learn to play drums now!

    Top 5 bands?
    Amon Amarth
    Tierra Santa
    Led Zeppelin
    Immortal
    Therion

    What do you do?
    I'm a field technician for an Oil/Gas service company

    What deck are you on?
    I can't remember :( BUT I am in one of them, doesn't matter, I'll be there. Wooh!

    What's a creepy thing I can say when I see you that no stranger should know and will weird you out that I do?
    That I wear my underwear inside-out during concerts as a good luck charm....

    No, i'm kidding, but that does sound pretty cool. Actually, I don't know... I'll have to get back with you on that one.

    I am Danica! Last year was my first year, and I can't WAIT until next year. I am half asleep and shall try to fill this thinger out the best I can.


    City/country:
    Calgary, Alberta, Canada!

    Age (optional):
    26!

    What first got you into metal?
    My Mama. She's a metalhead, so I grew up with it. Never really known anything else :D

    Play any instruments?
    I am positive that I could play a mean tambourine. But no, no I don't.

    Top 5 bands?
    Good god....
    ummm...

    Korpiklaani
    Sonata Arctica
    Sabaton
    Alestorm
    Finntroll

    Maybe... I don't know. That requires much more thinking than I can currently handle.


    What do you do?
    Photography (mainly Fetish and Gore), and Chain Maille. I am also currently in school to learn all the fun stuff to do with running a business. A friend and I are opening up a Fetish shop.


    What deck are you on?
    That's a wonderful question.
    K. I think.


    What's a creepy thing I can say when I see you that no stranger should know and will weird you out that I do?
    I have no idea. It's fairly difficult to creep me out. I also have no shame. I get called 'That Red Haired One', and apparently last year I was being calle 'The Red Ball of Energy' because I find it quite difficult to calm down or sit still.

    2015 Wishlist: Sabaton, Metsatoll, Nightwish, Hammerfall, Heidevolk. I dunno. More Power Metal, More Folk Metal!

    Hah, how've you been since ProgPower, Paul? I've seen a few of your posts around and just kind of chuckled to myself. You've been at probably 8 or 9 out of 10 metal shows I've been to in Atlanta.

    Hm, I wonder if I know Raf M, too? Does he usually show up at all the prog/power/folk/thrash metal shows at the Masq?
