The Metal appreciation society is quite simply put a group where all us metalheads can share our love of different bands. This group is for recommendations, reviews and comments on all things metal! Also if you are in a band and want to introduce your band by adding a track on here then go ahead. PLEASE NO MUSIC THAT IS UNDER COPYRIGHT - I'm just a guy who loves metal and wants to share it with others I don't want to get sued!

Hi there! My name is John, and I am the new co-administrator to this great society. I'm 16 years old and from Argentina. Since about two years ago, I started listening to metal, and it immediately became my favorite music genre. To the point, that now, two years since then, I follow the Code to death.

Since I started listening to metal, my life changed. Now, the music is always there for me, it's the only thing in the world that hasn't disappointed me, and that is why I have sworn allegiance to it, and I will defend it to my death! Those who like it, fine, they shall be called my brothers, but those who don't, it's OK as long as they don't mess up with me, my friends, or my music. Let them know that Metal gives me strength and that my heart is no longer made of flesh, but of pure steel.

For me, Metal is not just about the music, it is the whole feeling it creates on the person when it listens to it. Some may not know this sensation, and those are the ones who don't give a shit about what music they listen. Some despise metal, or some may just choose not to listen to it. But the truth is, that the ones that follow metal, follow it forever. We become a legion, a legion of brothers who find it's rules on the music they listen. And metal does not 'command' you to do something, but gives you freedom. Among your brothers you'll never feel unprotected, you'll feel safe and guarded.

Many people may think that metal is all about violence, and that it only creates more violence among the people that listen to it. But, they are wrong, most of the times, people who listen to metal are just people who felt lonely, or unprotected, and found warmth in metal. This feeling of being an outcast is what bonds you with other people that like metal. In my case, all my friends who listen to metal have created a sort of special link with me, that those who don't haven't.

Anyways, I'm getting a bit extensive with this, but I wanted to share my thoughts with you, and to know your oppinions. I may be wrong, but this is how I feel, and nobody will make me think otherwise.
To finish, I'll tell you which are my favorite genres and bands:

Favorite Genres:

  • Viking Metal (But also, Death Metal In General)
  • Folk Metal
  • Thrash Metal
  • Black Metal
  • Power Metal (though I don't listen to it now as much as I did one year ago)

And my Favorite Bands:

  • Tyr, Amon Amarth, Korpiklaani, Heidevolk, Turisas, Eluveitie, Slayer, Megadeth, Metallica, Manowar, Stratovarius, Sonata Arctica, Helloween, Arch Enemy, Children of Bodom, In Flames, Dimmu Borgir, Scorpions, Led Zeppelin, Folkearth, Hammerfall, Opeth, Norther, and many more I don't recall right now :P

Well, to end, I would like to thank MWinteringham for giving me the chance to integrate this society as a co-administrator.

Hail Metal!
