I am not nearly the metal/music know it all like most of you here. I thought I knew a lot--I don't.
Youtube and Facebook are obvious mediums. Kazaa and Napster were paramount in opening new music to me. I had a metal music station on my satellite TV systems and heard Iced Earth and HammerFall ( YES! FUCKING HAMMERFALL!! SUCK IT! ) and was hooked. I lived in a metal wasteland as far as buying metal music.
But, because I'm not a music snob, ( I\m a car snob
) I\m open to so much , and am open to more styles/genres. Half the fun is discovering band that you may have disregarded/ignored etc/...and doesn't cost you a loonie!
I can even listen/tolerate some death metal. Look at me, I'm growing.
