So I guess the done thing is to write a short introduction to oneself here. I'm Chris, a British guy living in Germany. Heavy Metal was what got me into music originally - up until I was about 12 I couldn't understand why anyone would waste their time or money on music when there were playstation games to be enjoyed - then one day I heard "For Whom the Bell Tolls" and my world changed. Rushed out the next day and bought myself a copy of Ride The Lightning. Metal has been my obsession ever since - though these days my music taste is pretty broad (in particular I'm a huge fan of prog rock too) I'm usually to be found listening to classic/heavy, progressive, thrash, doom, black, death, or power metal. And remember, kids: listening to music is much like eating an apple - it's all good, except the '-core'
