When I was about seven I had a cousin listening to it, I heard it and was like “this is fucking awesome” It started with hard rock, alternative metal and (shudder) nu metal, I think the first “metal” thing I ever listened to was linkin parks hybrid theory album, which I now consider to be crap… and not metal either. When I was about 9 through 14 I had some very tough times and I found solace in music and bodybuilding, at the time I was looking for something like linkin park, but more aggressive, I hadn’t really heard metal before, and I didn’t know what I was looking for but something about the aggressive, pissed off sound of the music really helped me through my days. From what I remember I was watching a youtube video and a clip from while she sleeps, this is the six came on, I was hooked, I NEEDED to know what it was, so I typed in the lyrics, hence came the first “metal” song I really liked. While she sleeps was metalcore, not the generic, shitty metalcore that has whiney vocals and is popular with kids, this was suprisingly hard for metalcore, it’s a mix of hardcore punk and extreme metal. I got hooked, from then on I moved onto cattle decapitation (deathgrind), some other metalcore like as I lay dying and suicide silence (deathcore), from there I branched out into melodic death metal, black metal, death metal, hardcore punk and thrash metal. Recently I’ve found appreciation for the classics like slayer, iron maiden, judas priest etc.
This is the song that really kicked it all off. I don’t really listen to metalcore anymore, but this band I still listen to
