There's only 2 albums that changed me.....and i mean they really did (musically at least).

Slayer - Seasons in the Abyss. If it wasn't for these 4 fuckers and this album, i wouldn't be playing guitar right now and i'd probably hate metal.

Immolation - Close to a World Below. These 4 guys and this album basically got me into a new genre of metal. Something not as thrashy......much darker, deeper and more provocative. This album was my stepping stone from Heavy Metal into Death/Brutal Metal.

I don't know what the fuck kind of music i'd be listening to if it weren't for these 2 bands. I don't give a shit who likes them and who doesn't......these 8 guys (combined) know how to fucking play their instruments and know what it is to be metal.

Black Sabbath - Paranoid: Got me into metal.

Pantera - Cowboys From Hell: Got me into heavier shit...

Vintersorg - um...various stuff, then Till Fjalls: Made me appreciate foreigners.

Joe Satriani - Time Machine: Began my love of "guitar rock"

Tenacious D - don't know...restored my faith in bands that make asses of themselves.

hmm i'd say that mostly _all_ the albums ive listened to had an impact on me...otherwise i wouldnt be listening to them
but if i have to give a more specific choice i'd go with martyr's 2 albums(hopeless hopes, warp zone)
just cause of the deep philosophy in the lyrics(have to know the bandmembers to actually fully understand though), and well because i know the members a bit and know why they wrote the songs etc etc etc etc etc

First of all:
Europe - the final countdown
Just because of them i started listening to music esp. music with guitars.

Then several Dead Kennedys-CDs:
Esp. Jello Biafra; not for the musical stuff, but for lyrics; it showed me a view of the world i could accept.

An important CD for my bass-playing was Primus - Frizzle Fry. Les Claypool is a damn god on this instrument. And thios CD is still great.

Cradle of Filth - Midian
This CD brought me to metal. I knew about Metallica before, but that wasnt such a hard metal to me. But CoF opened the way for more brutal stuff.
Now I have to say CoF isnt that hard anymore.

Metallica - Justice; heard it when I was just a wee kid, couldn't believe music could be that good

Sepultura - Arise; got me a bit more into the thrashier side of things (and atonal vocalists)

Carcass - Symphonies of Sickness; first proper death metal album, I guess

At the Gates - Terminal Spirit Disease; vocals mainly, but the swedish death metal thang kinda started there for me

Immortal - Battles in the North; after I'd stopped laughing at them, they really got me into black metal

Dissection - Storm of the Light's Bane; more swedish, only darker, I guess

Satyricon - Dark Medieval Times; started the medieval and acoustic stuff for me

Arcturus - La Masquerade Infernale; simply never heard anything like it.

All I can think of for now.

Pantera - Vulgar Display of Power. Let me know that someone out there was pissed off with a lyric book who wasnt just whining, plus was the only thing makin me wanna play guitar aside from my friend Colin. First solos and riffs I really got a handle on, and's never been something to bore me as a listen or to play.

Black Sabbath - Reunion. My first Sabbath CD was Paranoid, but it didnt grab me until after I listened to this live cd. Why? Cause these discs made the songs HEAVY. Plus, introduced me to the beauty of Into the Void, still one of my favorite riff songs.

Soulfly - Soulfly. First moderately heavy band I listened to, and made me appreciate Max Cavalera enough to go back and get into Sepultura. I might not like it anymore, but goddamn if it didnt lead me in the right direction.

Morbid Angel - Domination. For a long time I didnt like death metal much, but for some reason I liked this cd since I first heard it. Something about the songs on this one were good enough to attract me when I was listenin to shit, and was definitely the first of many journeys into the world of death metal.

Soilent Green - Sewn Mouth Secrets. Devastating and breathtaking. Loved the fact that I could be in the mood for damn near anything and find some of it on this, plus cute and loveable psychosexual lyrics that I always found sorta fascinating, or at least dug. Very good find at 14, and's still good now.

Anthrax - Sounds of White Noise. This is the CD that bridged thrash into the 90's for me, and I probably wouldnt like Anthrax, which is far and away one of my favorite bands, if this hadnt been the first of their CDs I had gotten. Plus it's one of the most addictive CDs I've listened to, one where whenever it's over I usually just let it play again.

Corrosion of Conformity - Wiseblood. The groovinest metal album ever. And that's ever. More addictive than heroin, and with as much southern groove as a skynyrd album. Maybe I'm just sayin a favorite cds, but this was the gateway drug to the rest of COC and remains the one cd whose songs I will NEVER be able to get out of my head, but're still heavy enough here and there to please the hard.

Alrighty, here we go...


Slayer - Reign In Blood - I think it was 8th grade when I was readin an old metal magazine that had the top 10 thrash albums of all time and this was one of them. At the time I was still listenin to older Metallica, Megadeth, Guns N Roses and shit but was always obsessed with whatever was the fastest shit i could get my hands on. I saved the lunch money I had over a few days and on the way walkin home after school stopped off at the music store and bought the Reign in Blood tape. I thought it was funny 'cause the album was so short it was on both sides.

Megadeth - Rust In Peace - I remember my friend lendin me this tape when I had to go on vacation with my parents when I was 14. The vacation sucked ass, but that tape made it all better, its the only one I listened to for 3 weeks. I think it was the fierce and precise riffing combined with the speed that did it. I always liked Mustaine's voice too, call me crazy.

Metallica - Master of Puppets - This one pretty much came directly after Rust In Peace. The day I got home, my best friend(who had also just come back from his vacation)came over to hang out and brought over master of puppets which he had bought while on his trip. I had this old broken down shed in the backyard, had electricity and everything which is where we hung out and listened to music. He put Puppets on and from the opening acoustic part of Battery to the insane closing of Damage Inc., I was fuckin blown away. I can still listen to that album and feel like I'm listenin to it for the first time again.

Cannibal Corpse - Eaten Back To Life - My first death metal album. Goriest lyrics I'd ever heard, coolest growl i'd ever heard and I hadn't ever really heard a growl before. This opened up a whole new genre for me, and no matter what anyone says Chris Barnes is a god damn death metal vocal pioneer and every other new fucking copycat lame death metal vocalist should suck his fuckin dick.


Morbid Angel - Domination - I'd had Covenant for awhile and loved it but Domination was the fuckin last bit of proof i needed that Morbid Angel were fucking death metal gods. One of the best death metal albums ever. David Vincent is a vocal legend, too bad he's gone and people trash him so much now.


Napalm Death - Utopia Banished - first Napalm I'd ever heard, bought it loved and bought every one since. Bought Scum and From Enslavement to Obliteration shortly after as well, interesting stuff but overall a waste of time. All you old NDer's, shoot me an email sometime and explain to me the big fucking deal with ND's early work, I'd like to hear it. Lee Dorian can go suck a fuck too. Hail Barney and the rest of Napalm.


Anthrax - Sound of White Noise - I had Among the Living and Attack of the Killer B's before picking this one up and both of them fucking rule. SOWN was just the turning point for the band, and it didn't hit me actually until this year. I was never a huge fan of the more recent Anthrax until I went back and listened to this album again.

metallica's "master of puppets" was the first metal tape i bought. theatre of tragedy with their self-titled debut introduced me to harsher metal and growls. and then came katatonia's "dance of december souls".

Another i forgot to mention.......i'm actually very surprised and a little disappointed that his band hasn't been mentionned yet:

Death - The Sound of Perseverance.

Why the last album? Well.....i had heard earlier Death before....i owned (and still do) Human and Scream Bloody Gore....but nothing striked me from those albums. But when i heard The Sound of Perseverance........i couldn't stop listening to it. I seriously listened to this album and nothing else for about a month non-stop. I couldn't get over such beautiful harmony like in "Voice of the Soul", or just kick ass long songs like "Flesh and the Power It Holds", or "Story To Tell".....this album opened up the technical/harmonized/beautiful side of metal, not just the usual palm-muted low tuned chords. Death has to be one of the pioneering bands for most of the heavier, death/technical shit that's out there today.

Chuck will forever be one of the few guitar players i consider a hero.

before i listened to metal i was a van halen,
black sabbath, led zeppelin fanatic.
the first metal album i bought was chaos a.d., sepultura
which was my jump start to metal.
then i went to rob zombie(metal?), and then
old mans child, then kalmah, and some other stuff
along the way, like iron maiden, helloween, ozzy,
dio, guns n roses, metallica's black album, and there's some more,
but i can't remember that long ago.

Death is just the begining 3 comp: This double cd comp opened me up to a world of music that I never knew existed.

Hypocrisy- The Fourth Dimension: I loved the somber depressing atmosphere it had. I listened to that album for about 6 months straight until I lost it.

Cradle of Filth- The Principle of Evil Made Flesh: This album really changed my life. Got me into more extreme forms of metal and made me want to paint my face up all the time. Damn you Black Metal!

At the Gates- Slaughter of the Soul: All I can say is WOW! I never heard guitar playing like this.This album is responsible for me playing guitar and my love for that melodic death metal sound. All hail Sweeden!

Carcass- Heartwork: Heard these guys on Beavis and Butthead. This album is still among my favorites. Bill Steer is god.

Im sure there are more but my mind just went blank.

Later,
Blizzard Beast

metallica-kill em all -> my brother had this tape, and i was about 10 when i listened to it. I listened to seek and destroy over and over again. And pulling teeth. This is where my appreciation for metal came from.

Ozzy - speak of the devil -> Bought it for a gram of weed. It forged my love of sabbath and ozzy and all things metal.

Nirvana - bleach -> A friend of mine left his tape of this at my place. I became addicted to nirvana.

mega-deth - rust in peace -> Bought it off an older friend who sold it to me for a gram of weed. I listened to it for a long fuckign time.

slayer - south of heaven -> Got it at a time in life where i hated everybody and everything, i loved this shit. Hail slayer

PanterA - The great southern trendkill -> I had been listening to the other PanterA but did not have any albums (money went to weed ). But when i bought the great southern trendkill i was amazed. The album is so fucking powerful. I was shocked at the amount of hate and anger in the album, that i was instantly in love. Right from the fucking scream at the start of tgstk. I can hardly listen to it anymore, because it's now too fucking angry for me. But it helped me through a stage in life, and suprisingly opened my mind a bit (seriously). With floods, 10's and suicide note part 1.

Pink Floyd - meddle -> Two hits of high quality acid, the sony playstation's psychedelic equalizer and meddle on repeat. primarily "echoes". I became addicted to pink floyd. This was a massive step in expanding my musical tastes.

Pink Floyd - The wall -> After repeated listening's to meddle, i bought the wall. One of the best purchases of my life. I was completely blown away by the whole concept of the album. The way it's structured and the music blew my fucking mind.

From there i went to my parents collection of music and forged my love in different music. Clapton, the doors, beatles, lennon, hendrix, joplin, all the shit i despised as a child because my parents would be drinkin' and listening to it.

Cypress hill - black sunday -> It helped in my appreciation for hip-hop. Which i now listen to in plenty.


I know the thread was metal cd's but fuck it.
there's a lot of music i forgot to put here too.

peace.

Kinda strange, you're one of few people that find the same things and fell in love with that CD for the same reasons that I did. One that I neglected to mention before. Only difference is, I still love it.

The "Black" album by Guess Who. (Metallica just in case you didnt know...:rolleyes
This really started it for me, though I just kept on yearning heavier, darker stuff, so its just really progressed through Sepultura-like stuff, to Dimmu Borgir and black metal in general. I think my most influential black metal album would have to be either Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia, Spiritual Black Dimensions or Hatebreeder (CoB). Other very influential albums are Enthrone Darkness, Master of Puppets, Beneath the Remains, etc etc (I'm sure you are all mostly aware of the drill...)

For me it all started with Cradle of Filth, being the first band black metal band to listen to after decades of metallica. After that, Children of Bodom, Dimmu Borgir and were off! Then Marduk, Cannibal Corpse etc, each time a step harder!

One Album:

Cruelty and the Beast by Cradle of Filth.

Borrowed it off a mate, and he had to fight me to get it back. This album introduced me into the darker side of music. Before it was all about old Metallica, Fear Factory, Slipknot, and Sepultura.
The theme of this album is excellent, something i had never encountered before. The speed and technicality of the drumming, the atmoshpere created by Dani's shrill screams together with the keyboards. This is one of their greatest albums, and never really re-claimed form (although their first album with Sony is sounding promising.)

A close second is My Dying Bride's "Light at the End of the World". This introduced me to Doom/Death and since then I've got "As the Flower Whithers" (an equal classic) and "Like Gods of the Sun".

death - TSOP, album moved me in ways i never thought possible
opeth - BWP, for the longest time, this is what i wanted to do, the album opened me up to lots of older progressive rock stuff
cannibal corpse - butered at birth, first death metal album, i love this album, even though the vocals are shitty, i also love the guitarwork
kittie - oracle, go ahead and laugh if you want, this was the first metal cd i ever bought/owned, first concert as well, still one of my favorite bands, cool riffs, if simple, awesome drumwork, great lyrics, very brooding album.
ill add more later, class is almost out.

Manowar - Battle Hymns. back in 1989, when i was 6.

never cared about music before listening to it, introduced me to metal and was the first step to what i mostly listen nowadays.

Cynic - Focus.

i used to take this album to school and show the guitar solos to my friends. they would shit themselves, several times.

Van Halen - Fair Warning - got me into guitar oriented music
Kick Axe - Vices - got me into metal
Mercyful Fate - Don't Break the Oath - got me into obscure shit
Banzai Axe compilation - got me into Metallica, Slayer, Venom, Raven, Trouble, and Gravedigger
Metal Massacre 6 compilation - got me into Nasty Savage, Hallow's Eve, Possessed, Hirax, and Dark Angel
Hit Parader's "The Wild Bunch" compilation - got me into Megadeth and Anthrax

I'll mention one concert also - 1985's "Day on the Green" at Oakland Coliseum with Scorps, Ratt, Y&T, Metallica, Malmsteen, and Victory got me into Malmsteen. Yngwie was on fuckin' fire that day in front of 60,000 metalhead freaks, most of whom seemed to be wearing Dio or Metallica shirts.

Anything by Pantera really, I knew from them, that nothing can stop you. NOTHING!

For death metal it was morbid angel's Dominate, Fuck i remember the first time i heard "where the slime live" and it was the video and when i saw trey sweep and tap like he was taking a piss i thought "Guitar playing is alive, but in the underground"

Metallica's kill'em all: my guitar bible.

Slayer - seasons: Another kick in the balls album, fuck i remember being 7 years old and playing nintendo with my bro, and he would play that fucker from front to back for hours, and when i got older and pick up a guitar and started playing that CD again I knew that real metal was in the past and to look back and lean from it.

Judas priest - painkiller: before i heard this i thoguht priest was REALLY glammy and that 90% of thier stuff was gay, but when i heard the song painkilelr i was WRONG!

Anthrax - among the living: you dont have to be the worlds greatest shredder to make a good fucking album.

Fear factory-demanufacture. the first band that really got me into metal, and i call them metal! Also my first band to call a "favorite", and they were for 2-3 years.
Metallica- And justice for all. good times
Cradle of filth-cruelty and the beast. first black metal band i heard. considering the keyboards, tremolo, and vocals. I call it black metal, and if you have something to say about that , save it, or tell it to yourself in the mirror.
Mithotyn-King of the distang forest-first viking metal i ever heard. Got me into other viking and folk bands. became my favorite band. I can hardly describe what this album has done for me.
Cryptopsy-none so vile, ooooooooooh fuck! best death metal i ever heard.

I know theres more, but im in a hurry.

Lets to this alphabetically:

Agalloch - The Mantle - First full album of theirs I listened to, and it made me look at music differently. To this day, one of my favorite metal albums.

Cradle of Filth - Cruelty and the Beast - The first non commercial metal album I ever heard. I was in awe when I first heard this, and i still love this album. This album is solely responsible for my influence in music.

Every Metallica Album Before Load - Seriously. This is the reason I am into metal. I've been listening to metallica since I was 6 years old. 6 fuckers.

Opeth - Blackwater Park - My favorite band, and the first album I bought of theirs. First 'death' album I bought, too. I'm in love with it.

Quo Vadis - Day Into Night - The second death metal album I ever bought, that includes (IMO) the best death metal song ever recorded on it: On the Shores of Ithaka. This album is the reason I pushed myself in the speed department. Oh my god, I love it.

non metal

Godspeed You! Black Emperor - F# A# Infinity - I challenge, no I DARE anyone to listen to this and not look at music in a different sense. 3 songs, over an hour in length. Some epic shit on this album.

System Of A Down's first self titled album was great weird and heavy stuff. Without that album, I'm not sure if I would be where I am today with music. Of course, after the self titled, they started to decay into shit. But that one album is great.
As for later in the progession of metal music, the album "Nothing" by Meshuggah definitely effected me. 8-string guitars with crazy "mathematical" metal. It really influenced my use of time signatures as well as a really low guitar sound.

Venom. They got me into Black Metal. Cannibal Corpse got me into Death Metal. Kreator got me into Thrash. Iron Maiden got me into metal overall. How much more lifechanging does it get? Though Freezing Moon is a song I get stuck in my head whenever I'm really depressed. I don't know, I hold that song pretty close to my heart.

Yeah it's not that it's an amazing song or anything but for some reason it was the only song I remembered from start to finish when I was at treatment for a year and not allowed to listen to any metal. So it got me through, ya know?

My music history, in chronological order!

Queen - All albums (from my uncle). Forgot about it for a while.

Michael Jackson - Some random tapes. Outgrew it.

TONS of Rap and Hip Hop. - Rediscovered Queen, and 70's rock acts,
- Outgrew rap

Pentagram - Turn to stone
(Heavier Sabath style doom, with Blue Cheer-ish vocals)

I guess they're relatively unkown, so I guess it's strange such an act got me into more mainstream music. like Black Sabbath, and then got me into other forms of metal, very soon after.

Immortal - Sons of Northern Darkness
Isengard- Winterskugge
- - Both got me into black metal, but I outgrew it eventually.
Oh and they get me into some viking metal too.

Cannibal Corpse - Live Cannibalism
- - Got me into death metal

Pantera - Cowboys from hell
- - Got me into thrash and BLS

Iced Earth's-"Horror Show" got me into the "underground scene". I got it when it first came out at the recommendation of a friend. Shortly after, "Blackwater Park" changed my life as well. Before these two I was listening to Maiden 24/7.

From there, I just went crazy. "Nightfall In Middle Earth" changed me for the better by getting me into good power metal. "In The Nightside Eclipse" got me into black metal. Oh, but I've forgotten: "Scenes From A Memory" was in my collection before I even began listening to Maiden. I would say that changed my life by first showing me prog. Now, prog is my favorite genre.

Pain of Salvation's "BE" introduced me to the band the day it came out. Hearing many spectacular things about them, I just got it to see what the hype was. Turns out it wasn't hype; it was genuine conveying of emotion concerning the band. Best band to ever exist. All of their albums have changed my views on a multitude of things, or rather, given me insight into views I had never considered.

Awesome tattoo.

The first 3 Death albums are far better than the rest IMO overall music wise. Every album after that is guitar shred overkill randomness (which is why many guitarists like them so much).

Spiritual Healing is my favorite. The drummer Bill Andrews is only on Leprosy and Spiritual healing and that guy is the fucking greatest thing ever...

One interesting thing I noticed about Leprosy and Spiritual Healing is that there is a distinct underlying Sabbath feel to them and the bassist Terence Butler has the same basic name as Sabbath's bassist Terry "Geezer" Butler and furthermore the drummer Bill Andrews' last name contains the letters necessary to spell Bill Ward which is Sabbath's drummer's name...

Slayer - Reign In Blood: Probably the first proper metal shit I heard.

Death - Spritual Healing/Human/ITP: An old friend of mine got his hands on a cassette somehow, which had most of the songs from these three albums. Brought it over to my house one day. Probably one of the greatest things anyone has ever done for me. The birth of my love (many would call it a completely unhealthy obsession) for Death Metal.

Gorguts - The Erosion Of Sanity: My favourite album ever. Just fucking perfect.

Lykathea Aflame - Elvenfris: Although I've only been into them properly for a little over a week, their album is so unique and so damn good that I'm having second thoughts about what my favourite album is....... A bit early to tell right now.

All these albums have shaped my thoughts and opinions on metal, and how much I love it. These are the truly life changing albums for me.

Guns N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction

Slash is the reason I play guitar and this album still rules nearly 20 years on.

Metallica - And Justice For All

The first thrash/metal record that I heard. I knew this was the musical direction that I would be heading in for the rest of my life.

Morbid Angel - Altars Of Madness

The first death metal record I owned. This album represents the door to the realm of music that I consider my favourite genre. Legends.

Haha, it's taken me a few years to get In the Nightside Eclipse. I wouldn't have got it if I hadn't heard (and started playing) I am the Black Wizard.

It was cradle of filth's witch hearts and lovecraft that got me into listening to some harder metal. Before it was all slayer, sabbath, and metallica type metal.
But what really got things going was when I heard a band called Blood Red Throne on a late night metal radio show that plays locally. It was so hard (compared to what I had heard) and brutal. The guy described it as old school norwegian death metal, where the guys come out in black t-shirts and jeans. The concept of death metal was so fascinating, and the brutalness so cool, that I bought a copy of the "Affiliated With the Suffering". There were images of blood, and the band members portrayed as corpses in a morgue, thier names written on the toe tags. I was like, "whoa this is fucking cool." From then I started looking for anything I hard I could get.
Then I heard Det Som Engang Var. I would just listen to it with headphones the whole way through, countless times. It would bring out such raw emotion that I could only sit there and just experience the music is some indescribable way. I've been listening to the norwegian black metal scene ever since, and of course I've found better albums than Det Som Engang Var, but wow did that album change me.

It's not really albums that did it, coz I've never bought any albums I download song by song. But still.

I remember downloading metallica when I was like 13 and hating it...

Then about 2 years later I got some Cannibal Corpse (hammer smashed face, born in a casket, i think they were the first songs I heard...) and was blown away. I got hooked. I guess that's what started it all.

I heard Opeth's 'blackwater park' and then got addicted to them. Yeah, I've just been gettin more and more bands since then.




... I still hate metallica. First impressions are very accurate.

One interesting thing I noticed about Leprosy and Spiritual Healing is that there is a distinct underlying Sabbath feel to them and the bassist Terence Butler has the same basic name as Sabbath's bassist Terry "Geezer" Butler and furthermore the drummer Bill Andrews' last name contains the letters necessary to spell Bill Ward which is Sabbath's drummer's name...


I still think Human and Symbolic are their best work. But thats just me. I doubt I would ever get a tattoo for a band, but if I did, it would probably be a RIP Chuck type thing.

Symbolic does kick major ass as do ALL Death albums. It's mainly the vocal tone and drumming that attracts me to the first three albums.

An RIP Chuck tattoo would rule. If anyone gets one or has one, be sure to show it off here...

Sounds of Perseverance for me.

I should also add "Gateways To Annihilation" for significant albums in my life.

In Flames - Colony. wild guitar \m/ ^_^ \m/

Skyfire - Timeless Departure. godly. lovely. excellent.

Thrice - The Illusion Of Safety. don't believe me? listen.

Enter My Silence - everything they've ever done is beyond comparison. if I had to pick an album, their next one is shaping up amazingly. the paradox of two alone is a masterpeice.
