At 12 years old the gods set foot a chain of events that led me to PANTERA.
iron maiden judas priest ac dc mostley the classic stuff came first ..then came motorhead slayer venom ..death metal black metal celtic frost bathory .. the more extremer stuff ..
I was born into metal (Mum was a "Souxie and the Banshees" loving punk and my dad was a "Led Zeppelin" loving metal head who was also a musician and professional recording engineer)
I how ever Hated metal after being drowned in it SO got into .... TRANCE!
BUT, I started college and got into alot of my Dads work and slowly got drawn back, but when Linkin Park's HYBRID THEORY came out I was hooked and have never gone back, I'm massive on 80's hair metal at the moment (DEF LEPPARD, FIREHOUSE, WINGER, WHITESNAKE etc) but I love everything from Pantera to Type-O-Negative BUT that said I AM AND ALWAYS WILL BE the biggest Coheed and Cambria fan - even if they are a bit pants now days - LONG LIVE "THE SECOND STAGE TURNING BLADE" & "IN KEEPING SECRETS OF SILENT EARTH 3"
