Welcome to the mosh zone! And thanks, my musical choice is something I take great pride in. Even though I don't look the part, I can guarantee that inside I'm a raging inferno of steel and flames XD
It all started for me as a little kid. I'm a guitar junkie, and Metal is the fix. Though as I've aged, I tend to judge the music on all levels, from instrumentation to vocals.
I like to think I've got a diverse palette when it comes to rock and metal. There's just so many subgenres it's hard to stick with just one.
