So why did this thread get abandoned? It was pretty active for awhile then nothing for 2.5 years.

By the way, I'm an American metal fan so exposure is fairly limited. I have to dig pretty hard to find new bands, although the Internet has made it easier. I'm in my 40's and I've been listening to metal since I was about 15 or 16. I'm hoping to find a place for discussing the topic and learning about bands I haven't heard of.
To be honest I think it just fell off and I know I was going through some shit at the time. Been a while. Lol no idea how it just completely died but even more insane than it came back. Never expected to see it again hahahaha. Many memories on this thing.

Honestly, if you want some broad suggestions... start from front to back of this thread. All of us chipped in with many many discoveries, mentions, both big and small from all sub genres of metal (as well as some laughs here and there). If you want me to suggest some more specific stuff, just kind of tell me some bands you're into and I'll loosely make some suggestions when I get a moment.

Kind of wanna go back re-read for nostslgia.

I used to be a metal head in my teens and early twenties. Mostly mainstream stuff like Slayer, Ministry, Tool, Deicide, early Metalica. After I got married and had two great kids, I just can't get into it anymore. I have nothing to rage over. Damn contentment.

I can't relate, mate. I've been into all forms of music my whole life. For all reasons under the sun, including angsty teen years (though, truthfully I was more into Punk for those years, but still dabbled with metulz). Got married young, have a youngling who also enjoys all forms of music, but especially metal. Although I like all forms of metal, and he mainly likes metal with death growls and no singing hahaha.

I've been in bands, and have continuously listened to all forms of music. I will say my tastes in metal have evolved more to various subgenres over the years, but I've always been the biggest, and always will remain, the biggest Melodic Death Metal fan ever. I love it entirely too much.
