I'm new to these parts, but aside from Transformers and video games, my great love is heavy metal and I was just wondering if anyone else is a headbanger around here? A little about my tastes: I love all styles (except anything with -core attached to it), but my favorites are thrash, power, speed, & traditional. My favorite bands are Blind Guardian, Gamma Ray, Bolt Thrower, Manilla Road, and Overkill. Current bands I am in to are Manticora, Stormwarrior, Wuthering Heights, and Sauron. And of course, a staple of the metalhead is the concert. My last show was Destruction in Brooklyn, my next will be 1349/Goatwhore/Averse Sefira (mainly for Averse Sefira) in NYC. So who else heard Black Sabbath when they were 12 and have been hooked since?
