I am a life long metal fan who was looking for a place to discuss all things metal. This is my distraction, I do not have a lot of people around me who listen or care about metal so I figured I would look here for some conversation. I like all types of metal, as a matter of fact I pretty much put all metal under the banner of metal and not worry about sub-genres. Sure I know the difference between thrash and hair metal, but its all metal to me. I am just looking for some great dialogue where people can share opinions and maybe we can all find a new band or two along the way.
