What are those heavy riffs that got you into metal, or any kind of metal?

What about rock?

What are the songs that lead the way for your enjoyment?

No particular song or artist, I got into Metal thanks to Youtubers like Jared Dines, Stevie T, and Rob Scallon. I thought metal was all about satan and shit, I also didn't like how fast the musicians played in metal at the beginning because I was all into the "feel" in the playing in classic rock, metal was a little intense for me, but these guys eased me into it and showed me that there's more to it than just speed and craziness, ironically by parodying metal.

The biggest hit song from the biggest bands that were around in the 60s-80s. e.g. Smoke on the Water, Stairway to Heaven, Bohemian Rhapsody, Hotel California, etc.

Off of the top of my head, these are the songs that I play and repeat the most atm: (Omni) & (Tendinitis) by Jason Richardson, (The Woven Web) & (Wave of Babies) by Animals as Leaders, (Absolomb) & (Marigold) by Periphery, (G.O.A.T) by Polyphia.

Bonus songs: Stevie T's parody videos (Metalcore Song) or (Wipe Your Ass With Sandpaper (Death metal parody)), Jared Dines' shred wars and shred collabs.

Man, I feel like you need to look up some 80s thrash metal.

I get the whole youtube thing, but its a parody like you said. Great musicians, but I feel looking back to where it all started gives you a better feel, but everyones different.

At least you like your classic rock, but I dont think I have ever heard of the last songs you listed

Uuuuh maybe the first entrance to metal was Rhapsody (the original lineup) or Hamerfall. Shortly afterwards I heard Stratovarius for the first time and man, that was it, I jumped head first into metal territory. I still have a very clear memory of having my metal mix on cassette to hear in a walkman xD

Rock on the other side, has always something that comes and goes depending on the band and the mood. Probably the only rock band that I hear regularly is Poets of The Fall (Nevertheless, i have a soft spot for Foo Fighters and many bands that are in the gray zone between metal and rock like Anathema and Agent Fresco)

Songs that always give me a burst of energy?
Iris Mona - Eluveitie, Closer - Anathema, Miss impossible - Poets of the Fall, Blood and Thunder - Mastodon, Benzin - Ramnstein, Mist - Protest the Hero, SOS - Stratovarius, Vodoo Mon Amour - Diablo Swing Orchestra

The Youtube guys showed me the modern metal sound (Djent) which is what I'm all into these days and most of the songs I listed belong to this genre, and of course I'm familiar with 80s metal, I grew up listening to Metallica and Iron Maiden so I kind of group these guys with the classic rock bands as they kind of share similar sound e.g. Zepplin, Deep Purple, ACDC, and of course Sabbath.



At least you like your classic rock


Yeah I'm kind of bored of classic rock, spent my childhood and teenage years listening to that stuff and I'm over them now.

Give them a try if you're looking for something new, some of the artists I listed mostly do instrumentals, if you're not into that just check out Periphery. I'd also like to add Meshuggah and Gojira

I think my introduction to some of the harder rock was Rage Against the Machine. Can't remember much else, but I know that I wouldn't be as interested in hard rock and heavy metal without them. Bulls on Parade was probably the first of theirs I heard; I remember MTV way back had that music video and I really liked it; it was that moment, most likely, I realized I wanted more music like that.

Was raised on a lot of things but Dream Theater, Metallica, and Iron Maiden got me interested in a lot of other heavier stuff. o:
I listen to sludgy stuff, djent, really technical doomy stuff...and I also listen to really light and fluffy beats or happy pop rock so I think I just like music overall. I love Chelsea Wolfe.

Dream theater, metallica, and maiden

exact response i need from people

Just music in general, like you said.

I like to take a break from one genre and explore, because when I come back to my favorites, its that much better

I think it is important to not limit yourself because there is a lot of good stuff out there to listen to! But as you said, there are favorites~

Always listening to something new.

At least my mind isnt in one place, different music puts me in a different state of mind.

Thrash like early Metallica, Anthrax and Sepultura got me into metal. Also been listening to a lot of grunge/metal/stoner/punk/death metal stuff. It kind of grew from there.

All the songs on Judas Priest's Jugulator album and Tim "Ripper" Owens is such an underrated vocalist.
