Evolution Of My Musical Tastes
1Pink Floyd
A Saucerful of Secrets

Age 10: 'Corporal Clegg' was the first song I remember liking. Always on repeat on my dad's car!

Age 12/13: Next came the Blink/American Hi-Fi/Sum 41/Green Day stage.
A Crow Left of the Murder...

Age 13: Loved this at the time. Other faves were Bad Religion 'The Empire Strikes Back'.
Start Something

Age 14: wow this was really heavy for me at the time. Think I heard 'Burn Burn' on a FIFA game and loved it!
5Iron Maiden
Dance of Death

Age 14: this album and 'Brave New World' opened my eyes to metal.
6Killswitch Engage
The End of Heartache

Age 15: this was the album which got me into screaming, opening my eyes to a host of new bands. 'Rose of Sharyn' still has to rank as one of my all-time favourite songs. Trivium's 'Ascendancy' and Megadeth 'The System has Failed' followed.
7Dark Tranquillity

Age 15: got given this as a present by someone who wasn't into metal and just picked the heaviest thing he could find. I was taken aback at first but it grew on me. 'Lost to Apathy' is incredible.
8Hate Eternal
I, Monarch

Age 16: This album signalled my first extreme metal album, if you will. 'Behold Judas' I remember being a personal fave.
9Amon Amarth
With Oden on Our Side

Age 17-18: By now, I was pretty much listening to anything within the metal spectrum. This was one of my favourite albums in this period. Insomnium's 'Above the Weeping World' was another I loved.
10The National

Age 19: Still love metal but realised there's a lot more to music than just metal. A friend helped me uncover this gem. Discovered others like Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes and Phoenix.
