I'm a 33 years old guy from Hungary.
In my childhood I listened those well-known bands like Guns N' Roses, Nirvana, Metallica... as most of us, I guess.
I was 14 when heard the Midian by Cradle Of Filth. The atmosphere of this record amazed me and opened a gate toward metal music. However, later I listened mainly power metal and some of thrash. But nowadays, for a few years ago, my favorites are, or some of them: Morbid Angel, Carcass, Obituary, Vintersorg, Opeth (rather early), Emperor. Recently I've found the Tomb Mold, probably they will get up on my list.
By the way, for some time I read the forum, especially the "Death Metal" and "Deep and meaningful" sections, and hope to find my place among you.
