How much time did you spend researching metal?

Just been a fan 25 years or so, started on the usual, Pantera, Sepultura, Slayer, have about 1500 cd and vinyl albums, sold a hell of a lot more on ebay a few years ago, mainly my rarer stuff that I'd collected over the years, and got great prices for them, that Absurd album, their very first, and was utterly terrible I managed to sell on bids for over £80.

In my teens and twenties I was a huge collector, and would pick up anything interesting I saw at gigs or at Kensington Market or Camden, used to go to a lot of signings as well, or take albums along to gigs to get them signed. I was well connected amongst the London metal scene, so always knew a promotor or venue owner and ended up meeting the bands 8/10.

I really enjoyed those years, met loads of people I still meet up with, less frequently, but still the friendship is there.

Deary me...

Most of the gigs in London, at the LA2, The Underworld, The Highbury Garage, The Borderine, The Marquee, you could more often than not catch up with the bands at the bar, walk right up to them and they'd be happy to have a little chat with the fans.

I've still got the pick Kerry King gave me, when I got my face split open during Angel of Death at the Astoria in 1998, and lots of other little bits of memorabilia. I have lots of set lists and tickets in a ring binder, along with corresponding articles from Kerrang, Metal Hammer and Terrorizer, and even have a piece of paper with LG Petrov's home address on, as my band had just done a demo tape, I saw them at The Camden Barfly, and managed to mention it to him, to which he asked me to send him a copy after I drunkenly pestered him for a support slot. Never heard back, but still a cool little interaction.

Got tons of little moments like that, that no metal fan now would ever have, the scene was so much better in the 90/2000's.

You failed to name many of the founders of those genres.

Amorphis is the only one that fits on that list.

You sound like the typical Metallica/slayer fan with no other musical taste.

Do you shop at hot topic? You list that you have picks of slayer and magazines you sound like you listen to country but have to prove to us you listen to metal.

I hate the growling indecipherable vocals that became the norm for most metal in the mid to late 90s. Now that's gay metal. As gay as Ratt.

I seem to have gotten under the skin of some jealous trollfags here, my history in metal is been there, done that, still doing it...

Mostly going to punk/hardcore gigs these days though, and still more metal than the pair of you... The next bands I'm seeing live are Old Firm Casuals, and then the biggie, Dropkick Murphys, been waiting years to see them.

These guys were a great punk / metal crossover. I saw them many times in the 80s they could really get a room rockin'. 80s mosh pits were a blast, before it became a blood sport.

Blood sport is absolutely right, I've seen Kuckledust a few times, at the Underworld and Ninebar and they were mad pits, my made got his hip dislocated one time, but this is just going a bit too far:

Yeah man, at the shows I went to in the mid to late 80s there was a vibe of camaraderie and celebration, going wild! When someone fell there would be an arm reaching out to help them up. A few years later there was always assholes starting fights in the mosh pits for no reason. It was a real bummer. The end of an era.

Haha yeah, pits were always friendly but wild, I got KO'D at an Obituary gig, and there was more people concerned about me than watching the gig when I came round, nowadays this hardcore "dancing" thing seems to have ruined it.

Shame because hardcore is so community oriented, but as the scene has gone online, there's more strangers turning up to gigs, and haven't really got the camaraderie that we used to have.
