Thanks JRBoulevard_KC! I am indeed a dyed in the wool metalhead. I don't talk about it around here often because we're few and far between here in the KC area. I'm always shocked when I meet another guy into both metal and good beer, but have been fortunate enough to find a couple.
I'm constantly looking for new stuff. My tastes have changed a lot over the years too. When I was a teen and early into college I was into a lot of hardcore, thrash metal, and yeah even nu-metal (groan). These days I'm mostly into doom metal and stoner rock, but occasionally dip into black and death metal. I also get a lot of playtime out of classic rock, industrial, EBM/aggrotech. My tastes aren't as varied as a lot of other people around here, but they aren't as niche as it used to be.
My favorite bands these days are Electric Wizard, Anaal Nathrakh, Cobalt, Graveyard, Uncle Acid, Kyuss, Sleep, The Sword, TOOL, High on Fire, Slough Feg, and too many others to count.
It's just hard to find metal shows around here. We pretty much have the Riot Room for occasional awesome little shows, and then the occasional big guys at Uptown or Granada. But hey, good to know there's another one on here, DustinM! Hit me up if you wanna chat metal anytime!
I'm with you too on the Metallica. Those first 4 are all great jams. Master especially comes back into my playlist pretty often. I'm gaining a better appreciation for Ride the Lightning more and more over the years.
