    Ehh, I'm 21. Cartimar is the street (i guess) and Metal Disc is the store. It is located near Isetann, if you noticed that mall. There are many stores there so i'm not surprised if you didn't see it.

    There's Glorietta 1,2,3,4 also and Landmark and Park Square besides it. And oh SM too. Oh Rustans too.

    Good Shepherd ube, is the finest. I like it also.
    Yeah and Crispy Pata. But i eat less of that food right now, cuz i'm worrying about my hypertensions and such. Damn, i miss crispy pata. Yeah i like mangoes too, especially when ripe but i like the green one too and especially with bagoong! Yum, yum, yum.

    You must have bought more. The peso-dollar rate here is too high. That's one problem for us, and that's why many of us are living in poverty.

    Yeah, i think there is a Jollibee there and in Hong Kong and Singapore too.

    Oh yeah M-A is good for those really helpful information. Nope. I haven't received it. I'm gonna check tomorrow though cuz i'll be going to Manila, recto in particular and yeah in Metal Disc.

    Yeah Pleasure to kill, uhh...kills. I have violent revolution first, and in first listen, right away i said this is a good band. KREATOR!

    I don't know if Sta Lucia has some Bowling alley. But i do know Megamall has one.

    Ehh, i'm not too familiar too girl. I like Winds very much but i don't classify them as symphonic, rather classical/progressive.

    But i do recommend Therion, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Virgin Black, Rain fell Within, Unexpect, Tvangeste, Haggaard and yeah, Nokturnal Mortum.

    I have question, what do your parents say or your friends about your kind of music? Cuz you're a girl and you're so young and yet you listen to Immolation which is very cool, cool, cool and cool.

    Yeah, I don't think I've heard of that mall.
    I went to the Glorietta's too.. I believe that's in Makati right? I remember because I went there my last night ..:( lol ..but SM yes, and Rustans never heard of.
    The green ones are delicious! Mangoes here are dry haha.
    Yeah, I see a cross between poverty and very rich places.

    YES! hehe

    ohh ok. well I think it was one of the Sta. Lucia's.. I bowled there once haha. Wasn't very good.

    Yes, I'm familiar with TSO. Listen to them every xmas haha. Also nokturnal mortum. I'll be sure to check the other bands out.
    This will be hard to explain. Well my brother and I have almost similar interests in music.. and my dad, he seems to like some of the bands I listen to as long as it's talented music. (mostly the metal where you can easily adapt too) We brought my dad to an In Flames and Opeth concert once..and he liked them ..Opeth more. (he likes the growls) Haha.. its funny I dont' know.
    My mom doesn't like loud music period. lol but I think my parents have trust in me to be able to keep listening to what I do and that I won't worship satan or do drugs and all that stuff. (since that's what they think my music is) Which is good..because they haven't thrown any of my cds away or haven't really said anything bad (only when I started to get into metal) and plus I don't liek any of that stuff anyway. My mom is hard to read sometimes lol, I think she just trys to avoid saying something about my music..just says "turn it down!" And I usually listen to my music in the computer room or on my cd player..where it isn't disturbing anyone much. But of course when I;m mad, I blast that bitch up hahah.
    Sometime clothing is a problem. I've ordered band t shirts before, and I try to order ones that just have band names...and not all the bad stuff on it or else my mom will not let me wear it. People always ask about the shirts I've ordered. I remember wearing an In Flames shirt for the first time..and everyone assumed I was a bad person and everything. I hate when taht happens. Oh well. Other than that..my clothes are normal.

    My friends! I have normal everyday friends. None of them listen to metal lol. And when we talk about music, I always have to steer away from what I like cause you know haha. Which can be difficult..since music is a huge part of my life.. that's why I come to these forums and try to meet different people with similar music interests. Also my friends are another thing that helps me.. my parents know my friends well and they know they're good people.. so I guess that helps with the trust trust thing. (haha wow I didn't realize this till now).. and if I started to hang out with different people or something.. they'd question me and etc.

    All in all, my family and friends are okay with it lol. whew

    Immolation \m/

    :D
    Yes..Opeth was great, so was In Flames. They weren't sleep-inducing to me =) .. the other bands were.
    haha my dad's gotta come with me to all concerts..or some type of parental. I'll be going to an Into Eternity show with him in March :cool:
    lol nice. Oh I could never convert any of my friends. They're all pop, rap, country lovers. I think the heaviest band they know of is Slipknot or Linkin Park. Some come up to me to tell me how Cradle of Filth are so scary. I just laugh and say you don't even know. But somehow I can tolerate them all.
    Well, I was 13.. but first I went through the whole nu-metal stage.. but that only lasted a couple of months. (mostly my 7th grade school year lol) My favorite band was System of a Down at the time haha. I started to watch Uranium and In Flames was on.. then I downloaded their stuff ..I was hooked haha. I went on Amazon.com and searched for more bands like them.. and I got Opeth. And I loved them. Then! I was doing a search for like swedish metal I think? lol because..they were both swedish and maybe I could find more bands like them. I came across this board and discovered more..and more bands from all the title forums. I did a lot of research to find the bands that I love now. lol it's been a long road...sorta.

    ha I wish, that'll make my parents even more terrified.
    Haha, seriously. Those are the kinda kids who complain about how their life sucks just because their mommy wouldn't let them buy the newest pair of jeans, and cut themselves. haha
    Yeah, I still enjoy SOAD ..but I pretty much drifted away. They're probably the only "nu-metal" band I like. Dimmu Borgir was one of the bands that also started me off.. I got hooked on Metal Heart, Hybrid Stigmata, Burn in Hell, etc..
    Emperor ..yessssss. I remember when I first listened to Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk..
    Yeah, I went through a shatload of bands to get to the ones I really enjoy now. And when I did, it I felt so good.
    yeah, ok haha

    Sorry for the late response guys, it's weekend so no office work. hehe.

    Yes in Makati where i am working right now.

    Wow, your dad is cool. I assume he likes progressive metal or something with some classical passages. Way too cool.

    Haha. My mom is like that also. I think every filipino mom here doesn't like METAL or rock music. It annoys them. They rather listen to their oldy songs. I don't do drugs and i don't worship Satan, yet i'm a hard metal listener. And listening in my room is what i do also, but like you, when i'm really in mood, i play Nile or Entombed downstairs in the living room and bang my head to eternity whereas my mom will lower down the volume eventually :erk:

    Wearing an In Flames shirt a bad look? Sometimes people are just like that. It's just they are not used to that so when someone wears that, they automatically say, "hey you wear a Dub Buk shirt, you're anti-christ and you worhship Satan". That's just ridiculous. But as for me, i don't have any METAL shirts. First, there's no available here except for low quality printed shirts in the streets. Second, i'm not used to wearing METAL shirts, well except if the band is really obscure i will wear it. Cuz you know, there are many posers here in the Philippines, they wear METAL shirts but don't even know what kind of music that band play. FUCK! So i rather don't wanna be one, just a simple METALHEAD.

    Yeah, i'm just like you too. Actually, i found UM searching on google for Philippine metal scenes so i found this board and immediately registered. I want to talk with my countrymen, but they seem not posting here anymore except for bringer of war.

    And my friends/bandmates, yeah they're cool. But only one of them listens to METAL and that is gothic metal specially. My other bandmates, they listen to punk, emo, metalcore and hardcore music which makes it every hard for us to make music nowadays. I'm really into Death and Black and more on the technical side of it. Well, my other bandmates listen to Alternative and Classical which makes it more harder. :erk:

    Time to reply on Panzer's post!

    Yeah me too! I want to see them too!

    Some actually believe that? That's pathetic. Well, most of here do. They always say i'm a drug addict or something. But i do not have long hair and wear METAL shirts yet they call me one which is supposed to be not the basis of telling someone is a drug addict by wearing shirts like that. I think those people are just losers they listen to their POP/RAP idol fuckers! Hehe, Am i too rude? And my friends, yeah you heard it.

    Downloaded (not peer to peer, but on some sites) and sometimes i order in our friendly store METAL DISC, which is too friendly that they haven't get me Arghoslent - Incorrigible Bigotry and told me to replace it with something else which i agreed and replaced it for The Chasm - Deathcult but they don't seem to agree again and ask me if i want the new one, Spell of Retribution, i said if you don't find Deathcult, get me the new one. I am not ordering again in that store. I ordered it last October 2004 and yet they don't have it. That's why i'm just asking a favor on bringer if he could help me buy original CDs.

    Ok. But i don't think i have the money to go to Taiwan, but in case, yes, i'll check it out!

Bringer, charnee, Panzer, if you have a sample of chthonic, please send it to me at rosesofshadow@yahoo.com. Just one full song sample i'm asking cuz mine's deleted or not backed up or something. I want to hear it again and my UM friend here is asking too. Please, please, please people...

    Yeah me too, i gave up trying to convert them, but to no avail, i fail. They don't like extreme metal, it's just too hard for their ears i guess. Haha, Cof? scary? I find them funny specially their videos, i can't stop laughing. Yeah they think Slipknot and Linkin Fuck is heavy enough, well wait till you hear Cryptopsy, Disavowed and Spawn of Possession which will rip their hearts out!

    Well, you're still young, the road is still too long for you and for your METAL listens. Yeah, i listen to NU metal back in the days where i'm still exploring and such. Then i went to hardcore and metalcore which doesn't last long (the nu metal also) then i liked Gothic Metal and stuff (which i like some bands right until now, i'm now very picky and i don't like Lacuna Coil and Within Temptation anymore), then Death/Black/Thrash which is my fave genres of all. I like progressive and doom too if you might ask. Woah, i have still so many to reply too, wait...

    I got into SOAD too, we even played Sugar once. Emperor rules, In the Nightside Eclipse is one damn fine album.

    My friend, this is very true. It's kinda rewarding when you find the bands that you really like even if they are really hard to find. Well, for me and bringer, it's really a task. Take note that we have only dial-up connection at home, so downloading albums is not a go for us. And no METAL cds available here. Why am i keep bitcin' about this? Because it sucks but it is fulfilling to find the bands you like on your own. And i will never stop.[/QUOTE]

    True? Wow that's amazing!

    They will be really, really terrified. You're a girl, so that's expected of your parents specially they are Filipinos, a bit conservative i must say, and still you're young.

    Haha, you are really cool charnee. In your young age, that's really a cool statement. Very mature enough. Yeah, teen angst i say. They listen to Korn and curse their parents or something for not giving the right allowance, just stupid.

    Well, guys remember what i'm asking for...just a sample of chthonic if you have some. hehe. Thanks guys. You really are awesome. I am happy talking to each one of you. Keep this thread alive and i hope we talk to some more UM members here! Filipino or not!
