[QUOTE=MotherPuncher;34802849]i agree with vedi, i enjoy prog but i can't stand pretentious douchebags that say it is the ultimate form of music[/QUOTE] Nu-Metal is obviously the most glorious of Metal. But yeah Prog doesn't always make it better or more enjoyable.
[QUOTE=AK'z;34796451]people worry too much about this "branch out" mindset. it's not the amount of genres you listen to, it's the styles that you are capable of connecting with and enjoying. There's a lot of things that I've yet to fully appreciate. [/QUOTE] This coming from Mr. You can't find any song I hate. [editline]21st February 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Vedicardi;34802740]people that think prog is the end all be all are pricks. also 7777 posts god is good.[/QUOTE] I hope I haven't come across that way, I like prog a lot, but I can't say it's end of my musical journey.

[QUOTE=Eluveitie;34786168]Did anyone else start there metal journey with a band other than the big 4 or Pantera? I started with In Flames.[/QUOTE] Incoming funnies for this but I started with Alestorm
i know someone who started with nightwish lol, don't worry about it
[QUOTE=Nonikai;34787419]I have yet to grow out of metal As a matter of fact, I think I won't ever grow out of it. I listen to a lot more sludge, post, jazz and blues now Still a lot of metal though[/QUOTE] Thumbing through the thread I was starting to think I was the only one left. I've branched out a LOT, sure, but I still love me some power/viking metal. And I still listen to a whole hell of a lot of metal. But I also listen to much more electronic than I used to, especially within the past year thanks to satellite radio.
[QUOTE=lil timmy;34804879]i know someone who started with nightwish lol, don't worry about it[/QUOTE] Hey, nothing wrong with starting with Nightwish. Everyone has to start somewhere. It doesn't matter if someone first gets into metal with Disturbed; if at the end of the day they're listening to [i]Show No Mercy[/i]-era Slayer, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, Anaal Nathrakth or Behemoth, or any other "metal" band, does that somehow make them less a metalhead than someone who listens to those same bands but started with [i]Show No Mercy[/i]-era Slayer, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, Anaal Nathrakth or Behemoth, or any other "metal" band?
Up until about 6th grade i didn't listen to anything but what my parents had. christian rock :I middle school was mostly 'nu metal' and stuff like A7X, throughout HS it was a lot of metalcore early on (thus the name ABR). now i listen to pretty much all kinds of metal, recently it's been a lot of progressive stuff or 'djent' if you would call it that, kind of a silly name though [editline]21st February 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=lil timmy;34804879]i know someone who started with nightwish lol, don't worry about it[/QUOTE] Old nightwish had some excellent singing in it
Djent is a shitty name for anything and I refuse to use it if I'm not feeling lazy. But yeah growing and change is natural and all that stuff.

[QUOTE=Zenpod;34804587]Incoming funnies for this but I started with Alestorm[/QUOTE] I started with Bullet for My Valentine :v:.
I use to be super into Green Day when I was like 12. Not anymore, though I still like Dookie.
started with Metallica because of Guitar Hero then there was the Slipknot era, kinda emabarrassed about that one :3 then came Mastodon, then The Dillinger Escape Plan and now grindcore EXCLUSIVELY jk, i listen to most types of metal plus some prog/hard/classic rock, punk and classical music if i'm feeling classy [editline]21st February 2012[/editline] oh, and i used to really like Green Day when American Idiot got released, they're my main guilty pleasure nowadays and technically the first "metal" song (if it's considered like that) that I enjoyed a whole lot was Killing in the Name Of, back when I used to spend countless hours playing GTA San Andreas

I have never grown out of genres, although I have picked up on some much more talented bands within them.
[QUOTE=lil timmy;34802854]you obviously know nicer people than I do lol. I think I might have mentioned it a few times but being a metalhead does not mutually exclude listening to and appreciating other music. Unfortunately I know a lot of people who don't think that way.[/QUOTE] I'm not sure if this post is agreeing or disagreeing with the trying new stuff part, but I know a fair few people who aren't willing to listen to anything that isn't metal.
to each their own who cares
[QUOTE=Vedicardi;34812911]to each their own who cares[/QUOTE] You care. That's why you insult everyone's taste.
I've been listening to Megadeth for years and still get an awesome jolt from turning Holy Wars or Recipe for Hate. Maybe it's because I play along with this music too. Playing along Holy Wars is an amazing feeling. But, I love blues, even though don't listen much. I write a ton of Blues that comes straight from the heart.
I remember as a kid I pretended I liked deathcore for a while because my friends liked it I think I lasted 2 weeks

[QUOTE=Eluveitie;34812742]I'm not sure if this post is agreeing or disagreeing with the trying new stuff part, but I know a fair few people who aren't willing to listen to anything that isn't metal.[/QUOTE] well A: I agree with you that people should try new stuff if they want to and B: I meet a lot of people who are genuinely surprised that I listen to anything but "metal" which they usually classify as just one thing anyway, and quite a few times I've heard "but if you listen to all that other music why do you still listen to metal?" If you've only met people who just suggest other things a person might like rather than constantly dissing their taste in music you obviously live in a place where there are people who can manage to be somewhat tolerent about music.
[QUOTE=SolidSnake52;34814529]I'm so sorry for your pain[/QUOTE] it was a dark time
first metal song I ever listened to [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38-yf6IWdBo[/media]

[QUOTE=johnlmonkey;34823118]I haven't ever read such a true post before.[/QUOTE] I'm jealous of you.
This sort of happened to me, but with a specific group. I listened to Daft Punk too much and now I can't enjoy them anymore. :c
imo the only things that daft punk released that were worth listening to were the live album, discovery and the tron soundtrack everything is just average
I loved metal, and I still listen to it, it's just my tastes have broadened and I listen to a lot of progressive rock and other genres too now. My favourite band is still Kamelot.
ehh alive 2007 is the only [i]essential[/i] listen imo
