Hi guys just wondered if there's any heavy rock fans on here. Been into this since l was 17 lm now 53 and still in awe with the quality around now. Beenthrough the glam phase many years ago plus the hair metal band when l had hair lol.
Now lm well into heavy prog bands Evergrey, Symphony X, Vanden Plas, Dream Theater, but also like Primal fear, Allen/lande etc etc..
Not into so called indie rock that to me is just for teens lol..
Cheers

Never got into Hair/Lycra rock, some excellent musicians admittedly but the music was terrible. Moog/synthesizer rock also didn't appeal with the exception maybe of a few pieces by YES and a couple of others. Thrash is also a no no for me unless I can isolate and listen to the drum riffs..

Rock/metal all the way for me!!!

Started on your well known stuff - classics like Hendrix, Led Zep, Deep Purple mixed in with the newer stuff of metallica, GNR etc.

Can't really say I'm 'into' prog metal - only proggy band I really like are Dream Theater (Floyd go without saying, obviously!).

Due to various events in my life, I've found myself going down a much heavier route, lately. Loving the likes of Gojira, The Black Dahlia Murder, Yob, Dragged Into Sunlight. However, I've just got my tickets for Corrosion of Conformity and Hirax in Manchester. Although, 2013 was a werid year for gigs as I saw Dropkick Murphys, then Devin Townsend, Children of Bodom, Alabama3 and The Wonderstuff!

The best on the planet, in my most humble of opinions, is Mastodon. No one can touch them musically right now, for me.

I started my rock/metal journey at around 13 and I'm now 33. My dad said it'd just be a phase when I was 14... but what a phase it is!!!

Wouldn't call myself a fan, but I am quite partial to a bit of good metal in various guises. I never got into the "old-school" metal of the eighties and nineties though, growing up in the 90s I used to listen to a lot of house, rap, punk, grunge and alternative music.

I still listen to a lot of that, but over time my taste in music has got wider and wider and now I listen to (post 2000) Metallica, Deftones, System of a Down, but also Jimi Hendrix, the Doors and 80's punk.

The harder the better!

I got into heavy rock in the early 70s when I was about 12/13 with Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult, Deep Purple, UFO and all those sorts and I'm still listening to it now (along with a load of other stuff).

Hey guys I love my rock and metal, since the mid eighties onwards love all sorts of it. These days listen to a wider variety of material but am still a rocker at heart! The scene in Sheffield seems to be on the up again, The Mulberry, The Dove and Rainbow, Church House and the Yorkshiremans ups and running again :-)

Great guys a thread to be proud of keep the faith that's all l say...was never into the thrash scene the singers got on my nerves to be honest lol..Claim to fame saw Maiden 1st ever tour 50 people in a rock club in my native north east. Turned to my m8s said these won't go far lol..
Saw Saxon as they were then Son of a bitch in the early 80s..
Not really a fan of huge arena style gigs somethings missing er atmosphere l guess can't beat sweaty clubs couple of hundred people crambed into a shoebox lol.
Cheers

...well said Mooks ..The Big arenas dont interest me in the slightest ...
I met Graham Oliver many years ago when he played a Guest Spot with a Band in Hoyland .
One of my mates was in the Band and he introduced me to Graham ..
We've been F/ B friends for quite a few years as now ..

I have been into it since about 1976 when my then boyfriend played me some Rory Gallagher and thought it was the best thing I had ever heard! Still into it now love all the old bands saw Zep at Knebworth both weeks, seen just loads of bands. Wasn't keen on the hair metal of the 80's but love a lot of new bands Rammstein, Black Stone Cherry, Shinedown etc. Will never change my musical taste now far too old and not that I want to any way!

Most of my mates have been met through the music, spent many a happy night in the Wap and Rebels, now I go in the Dove, Mulberry, Church House and The Yorkshireman.

Opeth are worth a try if you haven't heard them. They're heavy but also have proggy elements, especially with their latest album.

Just had a listen not really my style the growling puts me off can see the proggy style though.
Just had a look back at early days Castle Donington only went once but Accept, Y&T think Van halen were there 86 l think.
OK Downloads popular but theres only a couple of bands that are worth watching rest are just fillers .
At least at donington the bands that were on were very popular
Can never forget that weekend went with 3 m8s one didn't check the stove was working and yup it wasn't . So with burgers sausages etc in the car my m8 decided to eat everything raw lol. Didnt affect him hell knows why not.
That was the year the toilets were taken down for firewood even with people sittiung on the throne lol...happy days

......Bought Lamentations ( Opeth DVD 2003) ...Also got their CD's ..Great Band ( there's lots of Bands from Sweden and Finland that aren't as well known as Sabbath , Purple ,Led Zep etc ....but ,they certainly know their stuff ..
I listen to lots of 'Folk Metal ' ...especially Ensiferum and Korpiklaani ...
Ensiferums new Album 'One Man Army ' features a metal version of the TV Series 'Rawhide' ..it's actually pretty damned good ...
I love the Korpiklaani song Koivu Ja Tahti ...The intro starts off nice and gentle with Accordion ,Acoustic Guitar and Bass ...then the 'Metal Bit' Kicks in .
Also , their song Spirit of the Forest features Guitar ( towards the end ) that Megadeth would be proud of .

Hmm had a browse about YouTube last night Delain wow she's cute . Eluveltie hmm singer ain't bad either lol...heard a few tracks Eluveltie Call of the mountain is a good track but why the growling on the others just messes it up for me musically there very good.
Delain well she's what the doctor ordered lol...Stardust excellent track
Just ****** me off a lot of bands are very good but the growling grunts that ye cant understand anyway are just a waste of time but that's my opinion. That should stray with the death metal scene to me.
