|My Musical Timeline|
Presented in form of albums!
Yeah... see, I was actually not too fond into music as a child since I was mostly exposed to latin music, and it fucking sucks. But once I heard a song of these loveable douchebags in the radio and it was catchy as fuck, so this ended being the first album I ever purchased, and it led me into having more interest in music and watching MTV...
As I said I didn'd know shit about music and one fatidic day MTV presented "Rollin' " to me; and I thought to myself: THIS IS SOME HEAVY SHIT!, next thing you know I'm a limp bizkit fan banging my head at My Generation.
Follow the Leader
Having ditched BSB, this seemed like the next logical step, I mean... they looked much more metal than LB (... like that's hard) with their long hairs and beards.
Angry teenager + Nu Metal... do I have to do the math for you?
Master of Puppets
Funny thing is so far I had tryied to avoid Metallica at all costs because, well, the sole name sounded like it was too METAL for me, but an older cousin gave me this and everything I had heard before sounded meaningless to me. Metallica quickly turned into my favorite band for a long time.
I trully disliked the growls and screams of metal and they threw me off trying any new music, but SlipKnot slowly and constantly helped me off my fear of screams. Yes this band has 437853 members too many. Yes most are untalented. But they are probably the best taste-changer around.
One of my favorite albums of all time. I got to know these guys in a trip to Germany while I was trying to expand my taste in metal and renwed my hope in finding something that was better than Metallica. (Yes I was young and ignorant.)
Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken
My first major musical disappointment; I didn't even listen to this before buying it; I just asked one of the counters in Mediamarkt for good metal and gave me this in a limited-edition steel can package. It didn't get any mor m3tuhl than that.
Lesson learned: never trust one of those douchebags again.
Once again I found myself in a state of not caring much for music; until I saw a show (can't remeber which one) hosted by Bam Margera and he awarded Mastodon for best metal record of the year or something, so I decided to check them out. Nice.
This is one of the major milestones in my musical timeline. I was looking for a review of the latest Korn album (Untitled) to know if it was any good and I stumbeld across Sputnik. I got curious and saw that Amorphis' SIlent Waters was a favorite around here, so I decided to check the band out. I couldn't find SW, but I did find this... and it blew my mind. I quickly ditched most of my previous digs (Korn, etc) since I couldn't beleive how good this was.
When I finally got this I was rejoiced. MoP was no longer my favorite album.
|12||Between the Buried and Me|
Since I was'n disappointed by sputnik's recs I decided to look deeper into the site and I came across one of the ultimate albums in my liking. This helped me understand a lot of bands which I had previously discarded and made me a fan of proggresive metal.
|13||Protest the Hero|
BTBAM led me to this, but it was a bit harder to get into. It was deffinitely worth the patience.
Enemy of God
I had lsitened to this by the time I was in germany, but didn' like it at all. After my newly discovered taste had kicked in I gave it another try and it expanded my horizons in Thrash.
|15||Protest the Hero|
It's been a couple of moths already but I still listen to this almost in a daily basis.
|16||All that Remains|
The Fall Of Ideals
Just my latest dig.
|#1 is pretty much what I went trough because of the same reason... where you from?|
|1 is the same for me, minus the latin background and add trying to copy my older sister. Your limp bizkit is basically my linkin park. But that's where our similarities end.|
Interesting list though, I enjoyed reading it.
|lol Hammerfall |
|haha yea starts with awful albums. I'm happy we can't see the cover of 1..|
|don't let anybody tell you Rammstein suck, because 7 rules and everyone else are just loozers.|
|I remember having a Backstreet Boys album on tape. Probably still have it around somewhere|
Thanks for the support derek, but I can't recall anyone saying 7 sucks. It's a fucking masterpiece.
|Peruvian cool, Puertorican here. Your 2 is my Green Day. 12 and 15 are great albums.|
|is this a bell curve?? crap, crap, crap, decent, semi-crap, decent, good, good, great, awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome, not so awesome, not so awesome, meh, shit. |
|lol at ThyCrossAwaits calling Fall of Ideals crap.|
latter half of the list is mostly great.
|...So you labelled 17 albums when theres only 16. Clever ThyCrossAwaits.|
|intersting list. My #1 would be Bomfunk Mc's and #2 would be linkin park. From the old albums I still listen to #4 at times. Maybe about once or twice a year I'll listen to #3 as well. And Amorphis ftw|
|Good idea for a list. 1,2 are pretty much the worst albums ive heard, but the list gets a lot better.|
|I remember crying to get my mom to take me to the mall to buy #1 the day it came out. Same thing with #2. God my parents must've thought I was such a fag.|
|Cool list. I think I'll do one of mine sometime. Also, for me Millenium was my 2nd album. I started with S Club 7 >.< |
