    Hello mates. Im curious to know......whats the first metal band you've heard? Personally I think mine was Disturbed. After that I started to listen to other bands as well.

    What about you mate?

    Probably Metallica. The first metal band I've heard that made me like metal ? I'd say In Flames.

    Metallica, I suppose, at pre-school age from my sisters' cassettes. Also started listening to Rammstein and other such stuff with friends at 10 years old or so.

    Probably Megadeth, Metallica, or some obscure Thrash/Death metal band. It's impossible for me to say because my brothers were playing metal in the household when I was just a few years old.

    The first metal band I was a big fan of was Blind Guardian, in my early teens. Then Iron Maiden. Then I kinda left "big fan" mode and liked several bands equally.

    EDIT: actually, Helloween (the keeper albums) was first. That was when I wasn't even a teenager. Even my mom liked Helloween.

    Iron Maiden's Be Quick Or Be Dead should be the first metal song I heard (I wouldn't call "metal" Guns 'n' Roses, otherwise I have to date it back in 1989)

    Like most, my firsts were Metallica, Megadeth, and Iron Maiden. Probably Anthrax as well. 'Tallica started it all, though.

    I suppose the answer will vary, depending on what you consider "metal." When I was a kid, I really liked Van Halen, Journey and Rush. Things evolved for me from there toward the hair bands of the late 80's and early 90's. It wasn't until I got a copy of Metallica's "...And Justice for All" on cassette tape that I really started listening to the heavier stuff. A friend of mine got me listening to Dream Theater in high school. By then, I started getting more into Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, as well as more current prog like Queensryche. I first heard Symphony X when a coworker brought a tape of their self titled album into work.

    Living in a country where metal is everywhere it's impossible to say which band was the first I heard, but Priest is definitely the first one I fell in love with.

    Saw Metallica on TV performing at the Freddie Mercury tribute concert in 91 (I think). I thought 'what the hell is this???!!!'. The week after between me and my brother we'd bought all their albums. I got Kill em All and Puppets, and my bro got the other 3.
    I also remember hearing Bring your Daughter to the Slaughter played at a school disco.

    First rock band was Guns N' Roses, thanks to my 6 year older brother.

    First metal band... probably Iron Maiden or Metallica, though I'll say Maiden because I've always had more of a relationship with them than Metallica.

    I got introduced to Maiden when I was around 10 or something, again thanks to my brother, plus my another older brother. The 2 first songs I heard was "Fear of the Dark" and "Afraid to Shoot Strangers. Both good songs, but I've always had a soft spot for the latter.

    At that time I listened to pop music, but a couple of years later, I got into metal, via a transition period with Linkin Park :p I started collecting Maiden cd's and now I have all of them (all studio, most of the live discs).

    I can't say I remember the first metal band I heard... But the first metal band that I ever took notice of and got really into was Iced Earth. Kinda an obscure band to get me started with metal, but I will take it!

    I'm showing my age, but for me it's Black Sabbath. They were metal before we knew what metal was!

    I've heard and forgot some death metal bands, introduced by my senior cousine when i was very little. But what i first listened intentionally was Metallica's Kill'em All when i was 12 years old or so.
