    Hello - thanks for your interest...and allowing me to join everyone else in here too! I'm rapidly approaching 50yr old in few years and am embarrassed to admit that even though I've been a huge audiophile my entire life in both listening and collecting all sorts of different types of music it wasn't until past hand full of years I finally heard Metal the way it was intended to be heard and ever since have been hooked! I'm a professional guy that has worked extremely hard my entire life and have missed out on a lot of the finer things in life. If work didn't hold me down it was then from a great deal of personal trajedies I had to plow through and somehow I'm still here so there must be a reason as I'm also not know to be a "lucky" individual. I'm excited to be here and look forward to gaining more insight into some new groups I'm hoping to stumble upon in here as I've found METAL is the most misunderstood genre of music and is NEVER given the chance it deserves.. most of the best groups remain underground and playing under the radar to avoid the negative press or like most artist's I've met simply don't see themselves as artists and don't like to be put under the spotlight. All I know is what I've been through recently it's only because of METAL that I remained strong inside and latched on for the long ride I often questioned if were gong to crash and burn or land somewhere safe into greener pastures. I'm full of gratefulness that the later happened and I'm now living closer to family again near Richmond, VA! I owe my life to this genre of music and have found the most honest and true people I've come across within live have been fellow "metal heads"... REAL PEOPLE and no B.S. to see past.. what you see is what you get - the way it SHOULD BE!! Life's too short to "act" or misrepresent those people choosing that path are just only lying to themselves... NOT a recipe for eternal happiness with one's self! So its pretty ironic most of you "devil worshiping mischief's" or so I've always been made to believe has only been another misconception in that those that wear all black or listen to "devil music", as most media members like to say, must all be bad....hAHA SO WRONG!!!!!! I've YET to meet a true Metal-Head that doesn't have the biggest heart under it all!!! I mean heck, let's step back for a second and ask these media folks if we're so bad then why did TOOL recently bury their fake "TOP 40" bubble gum pawn they put at the top. I think it's safe to say OUR time is coming as it's very clear from the dedication and support that was given to TOOL by their lifelong fans ON THEIR OWN without being made to believe that was the POPULAR thing to do! More proof, that people these days aren't buying into the media's molded pawns any more and are more using their own brains to determine what THEY THEMSELVES like and not accepting being told what they SHOULD like!! The time for a "HIGHER" consciousness is NOW and I'm even more excited to be a part in it too! Anyway, I just love Metal of all kinds and just can't get enough! I look forward to seeing where my time in here will steer me... hope we cross paths! This is pretty much all that's left in my life right now that's good and like I said before... I'm not letting go! BRING IT!!! :)

  1. LOL!!! sorry to chime in... couldn't resist... BOTH of you enjoy yourselves and hope you feel better & enjoy the rest of your games.... I'm just coming in from slaving all day in yard clearing out the debris in the woods... soon as the leaves drop here everything will be exposed so getting it cleaned up... almost stepped in a fox den hole too... I've been hanging out in the woods next to house all summer and have become a non-threat to this American Red Fox... now it makes sense as to the places I've seen it knowing now where it lives... Anyway, sorry again to but in... I've had this meme
  2. ...sorry for the delay in replying... yard work before Fall weather hits then winter soon after. Anyway, just came in for a break and all seems to be working well again... I tried editing both my signature and 1 post, both being successful! Thanks for looking into this and to whomever fixed the issue too! You guys are great... P.S. @Requiem... re: reply above... ROFL!!!!
  3. YYYAAAASSSS!!!! ^ I 2nd that! ^ Oh, and welcome by the way @Deadbydawn!!! LOL... nice bunch of groups/bands you are into! Since you mentioned Cannibal Corpse do you get into anything from Six Feet Under also (same singer from the early Cannibal Corpse [=/<1995], which I'm sure you might know)?... anyway, glad you joined in!
  4. ...thank goodness I'm not the only one... I tried to send you a p.m. to avoid posting what I thought was MY issue, as I'm not able to edit anything... recently I discovered that I've been uploading a lot of images seeing how a good number of other posts have broken links in them but never realized our accounts have a size limit to what can be uploaded... and of course mine is maxed out...LOL So I wanted to go edit some of my posts to remove the uploaded content and replace with web-links and cannot successfully pull this off... it's like the "post" button is gone just have option to "edit"...
  5. Love the herb! Here's some of my fav strains: SATIVA: Super Silver Haze, Lemon Haze, Green Crack, Sour Diesel, Jack Herer, Durban Poison INDICA: Northern Lights , Blue Dream, Blueberry Kush, True OG, Abusive OG HYBRID: Girl Scout Cookies,, Gorilla Glue #4 (now called "Original Glue"), Tahoe OG Kush, White Widow, I find the intensity that Live resins deliver to be rather fitting for me, hash has ALWAYS been a favorite too but become too hard to find - however what I absolutely get off on is when I make some Green Dragon (Tincture). That's like taking the strongest pain
  6. Hey @H34VYM3T4LD4V3!!! The first band I think of that's as close (music style and meaningful lyrics) to being like Dream Theater is Symphony X... over at this other site I spend a great deal of time at a lot of people love them.... you might already know or have heard... if not here's a link to one of their better albums "Lost Paradise"... if you don't have time to listen to entire album (embedded video below should be a playlist for entire album) I hyperlinked the album name to the title track and one of their more commonly known tracks for ya! another "similar" could be Porc
  7. HAHA!! NOW this thread is off and running!!! Love the pick @H34VYM3T4LD4V3 above w/ Ozzy... to me, it appears as though Oz is using Lemmy as a leaning post... dude looks like he's about to pass out but not Lemmy!!! Love it! Thanks for sharing these too! Hope we've inspired others to dig out their collection to also post more here....
  8. OK gents... for the life of me I can't even begin to tell you where I found this picture but naturally it's fitting to post here... I hope it's ok with you guys... the picture i have is 500x500 pixels and 29.2kb large.. and naturally this forum doesn't allow posting much anything "original size"so sorry I had only known to link it from my silly Instagram, which I'm not fond of... (I'm thinking it's square size matches a CD cover size more/less but again have no idea from where!!! Until then, if however you try to save this pic and this post diminishes or reduces quality for YOU P.M. me
  9. Hey brother... I've been meaning to come back to reply to your post now seems like forever... Having recently just moved all my DVD's/albums are still in storage so by you mentioning that DVD I've been really jonzing to breaking into my boxes to find my copy to watch again... usually YouTube has vids of most anything at one point or another.. but I couldn't find it... so I've been watching some of Randy's other stuff with Quiet Riot (Q.R.)... ever heard/seen him with that band prior to Ozzy? While Q.R. isn't something I'd reach for as a first pick nowadays, back in the mid-late 70's they wer
  10. WOW!!! NICE "Topic" / Band bro!! You know it these guys keep the classic/primitive sound... always a great listen for me as well and honestly until you've just reminded me I actually forgot about them for some time now! So much amazing music out there... Thank you!!! You ever get into any Cracked Machine? (Oh, oh, YEA!!!) or any Wo Fat either? (Both have the sick deep guitar riffs going on like in Witchcraft's work) While they are both typically a little harder/faster (maybe more psych/doom all those sub genres I get lost with honestly but am learning a lot more about them all in here
  11. hope these weren't posted previously - there's a lot of links that are broken... IMO these worth seeing again anyway. Enjoy!
  12. hey man... came across this interesting article outside of this forum about some "jazz metal" artists and these guys came up... thought you'd might like to check them out also... Enjoy!
  13. Welcome @juggernaut3366! You've certainly come to the right place there's lots of Metal to go around and around indefinitely in here... as you can see the challenge at first is figuring out where to "go" to and say the "right" things... I'm pretty new myself and still learning... I too had some Mod's assist me in "staying in the lines". Don't let it discourage you on your first post!! (assuming your intro is your first). Mostly everyone in here you'll find is very helpful and trust me I've thrown some drama out there and no one judging me either... pretty damn awesome really!!! You'll soon
  14. MY NEW FAVORITE!!! anytime you mention Tool count on a "horns up" from me bro! (your next post could be "Tool", "Tool", "Tool", etc., etc. and you'd be sure to get first place on "Most Metal Members" or whatever it's called... haha!!!)
  15. Thrash on my man! The more you write the more I can see we have a lot in common, especially about the chemicals... I too am not completely "sober" (I think I'd be institutionalized if I were BUT I JUST WANT A PEPSI!!! - LOL!!!) but that doesn't matter because to me, herb is a herb a natural growing plant that isn't just an ingredient of any man made soul crushing chemical compound(s) designed to get you hooked and bring your world down around you... an occasional drink too is sometimes enjoyable... no harm in anything that you can stay on top of and for everyone it's different so anyone readi
