Put lighter stuff at the beginning and make it progressively heavier as it goes along.

To kinda ease him into it, I guess?

Give him Images and Words, wait a few weeks, give him Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence.

And listen to above, but add in Demon of the Fall in there too. I'm gonna go listen to that now actually.

Only hooligans listen to metal, show him some nice Christian Folk songs instead, I'm sure he'll thank you for saving him from eternal damnation.

Start with bands like Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, old Metallica, some Slayer, then start going into old Sepultura, and some Kreator, Sodom, and slowly go into old school death metal.

make sure you give him equal parts melodic and brutal

Ew, not even close, CHC blows. TS, I reccomend giving him multiple CD's, with different subgenrees of metal on each. That way, he gets a taste of it all, from thrash to prog to melodeath to epic brootalz.

You see, some of those death metal guitarists, they hollow out a crucifix and they schpoonk inside of it and drink it onstage.

Here's what you do, make a mix CD of metal with the following tracks:

Death - Painkiller
Death - Zombie Ritual
Iron Maiden - Hallowed Be Thy Name (live version preferably)
Slayer - Jesus Saves
Slayer - Hell Awaits
Opeth - The Leper Affinity
Amon Amarth - Hermods Ride to Hel (Lokes Treachery Pt. 1)
Amon Amarth - Pursuit of Vikings
My Dying Bride - Deeper Down
Celtic Frost - A Dying God Coming Into Human Flesh
Celtic Frost - Dethroned Emperor
Stratovarius - Future Shock


You can put the original Judas Priest version of Painkiller if you want, I just prefer Death's version of the song. If you want to give your friend a taste of fine metal, then try and put something from at least the most popular of subgenres. I tried to do this in my suggestion but if you have a preference for another band in a certain genre feel free to replace it. (i.e. Exodus instead of Slayer, Iced Earth instead of Iron Maiden, etc.)

Don't put a lot of hardcore bands on it though, it might be just in the area I live in (North Texas) but that's how most people who don't listen and don't understand the heavy metal culture see metal: bands like Pantera and Hatebreed and Exhorder. Even though "Hatebreed is a Grammy Award-nominated hardcore punk band from Bridgeport and New Haven, Connecticut." I assume that it must be the same situation with death metal in Florida and thrash metal in California. But I digress... Just put lots of Opeth on it.

Stay away from white metal. I'm not saying give him Emperor or Mayhem or something of that sort, just stay away from white metal. They don't understand the debauchery of metal, what with their rules and their self respect.

don't go the all-out fast / brutal stuff till he's used to it.

sentenced - everfrost
electric wizard - torquemada '71
iron maiden - fear of the dark
judas priest - a touch of evil
ozzy - no more tears, i don't wanna stop
pretty much anything by tyr
acid bath - venus blue
down - temptations wings, stone the crow.

if he likes it, try stuff that's a bit harder...arch enemy (particularly stuff off their new album), children of bodom, amon amarth, in flames (actually 'only for the weak' could do well as one of the first songs you show him), pod people, etc.
