Although most of these posts are quote based, I wanted to express my appreciation in the original way I interpretted the topic.
I accidentally stumbled across this site back in 2001 when I was in about 8th grade or so. Was pretty deep into black metal back then. The reviews here showed me a whole new world of metal I would look for in local shops, mostly Hastings, for the next several years. I used to come to the site anytime I changed musical interests or went through new metal phases. I've once again turned to a new phase in the last year, loving old school thrash and death/thrash releases. Once again this site was incredibly helpful.
I had no idea there was a forum until a month ago, which is why I recently joined. Thanks for all the reviews! It's very helpful for me to find what I'm looking for.
Also, you're all quite quotable, and it's fun to read everyone's reviews.
