Started with ACDC / Iron Maiden / Metallica / Hendrix tapes that my older brother had when I was 9. Then extreme metal was nailed when I first heard the Mortal Kombat Movie soundtrack when I was 11. Napalm Death kicked my ass!
That soundtrack sold over a million copies in the U.S. (certified platinum), which is pretty good when you consider it had the likes of Napalm Death and Fear Factory on it. Amazing record and awesomely diverse.
(It also has my friends' old band Mutha's Day Out on it, so it has a special place for me. )
HAHAHAA oh shit for real? That muthas day out track cracks me up. Certainly an amazing sound track start to end!
It IS an amazingly diverse soundtrack. Gave me a bit more appreciation for other genres, too.
As for MDO, don't judge them solely by that song on the soundtrack; they just looped part of it a few times. Dunno why. (They're the only band on the soundtrack who also appeared in the movie, though!)
They were only 16, 17, 17, 18 and 21 when they were signed and we met and befriended them about a year later. Really cool, down-to-earth kids from Arkansas; one of them now plays drums for the sludge-doom band Rwake.
