My Gateway Metal

I discovered metal in 1986 watching MTV and borrowing Cassette tapes from friends. While not necessarily the most talented bands of all time or their finest work, these albums and tracks captured my attention back then, becoming my gateway metal. Some of these albums have aged well, and the rest live on as memories of a less complex time. Thanks to these albums, I continue to discover and enjoy modern metal bands after more than 30 years.
