Whats the first album that really got you into this magnificient downward spiral of head banging music.

What album was it/ how old were you/ how long did you listen to it/ do you still listen to it?
Scum by Napalm Death but only because i downloaded a ****load before then.

I was 14 / Quite sometime / Yes.
Ride the Lightning. I think I was about 13. I listened to it (and Metallica in general) non-stop for about a year. I still listen to it, just not nearly as much as I used to.

i was 10 and i still listen too it pretty regularly. not the best metal album ever i guess.
I think it was Metallica's MoP

I was 11, I listened to it very much and yes, I still listen to it, actually I consider it as my favourite album of all time
I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.

By my definition of metal (I consider nu-metal a subgenre of metal), it was Slipknot's "Vol. 3 (The Subliminal Verses)". I was 10, I listened to Slipknot heavily for a year and half, and I still listen to it on the rare occasion).

By the general definition of metal, Metallica's "Master of Puppets" was the **** when I was 11, and still is.
Metallica ...and Justice for All
Love my dad for getting me into that.
about 10, a hell of a lot, and yes one of my favourite albums.
Master of Puppets is NOT the best album of theirs.

My first was Black Label Society's The Blessed Hellride. I think I was about 14. I listened to it a lot, but I haven't touched it in a while.
Umm..... Well, the first album in my possession that was metal was Metallica's Black Album. I was in 6th grade or so.

I had been listening to heavier music before that, like a bunch of Disturbed, Powerman 5000, Mudvayne, Slipknot, etc., but I just wasn't into metal.

But I had been around metal a long time. My uncle played Black Sabbath since IK was really young, I just had no idea who they were.

Damn you were 10 when that came out!
Anyways, not really metal but a good precursor Blue Oyester Cult's Don't Fear the Reaper when I was maybe 5; Metallica's black album around maybe ten, but before that the radio played more metal.
Well, lets see... I was eight or nine when I got Nevermind, about 10 when I got Green Jello (Little Pig, Little Pig Let Me In!!!).... 11 when I got Bleach, but I'm not sure if any of those count as "metal" Green Jello maybe, but the real answer is Ride The Lightning. Dec. 8th 1998... I was 13. Every year on Dec. 3rd I now celebrate my Metal Birthday... THE DAY I BECAME A METALHEAD. Of course I still listen to it. In fact, I'm a bigger Metallica fan today than I was back then. If my day is crap, I just listen to Metallica and all is good.
Black Sabbath's self titled one. Was a favourite of my mums, and used to play it a lot when i was younger. Influenced me in the music i listen to today!
Both the first CD's I ever bought as well as first metal CD's: Metallica's MoP and Dream Theater's Train of Thought.
I was 13 or 14, can't really remember.
I played the shizzay out of MoP, but ToT got significantly less spins, due it sucking.
I listen every now and then to some MoP, when I suddenly get a nostalgic feel, and I still love the songs. ToT is more useful to me as a frisbee than a cd...

My first metal album ever was a Nu-Metal album. It was Papa Roach's Getting Away With Murder album, and I was about 12 or 13 when that came out. It wasn't the heaviest of tunes, but the title song Getting Away With Murder influenced me to pick up heavier tracks. My friends, some of who were rabid Slipknot and SOAD fans, introduced me to them, and eventually I went beyond nu-metal, purchasing albums like Metallica's Black Album and, more recently, Megadeth's United Abominations album.

I was in sixth grade and Slipknot's self-titled CD came out and I don't think I listened to a different album for about six months. I'll still give it the occasional spin for nostalgia, but it hasn't really aged well. My first "real" metal album was a couple years later when I got None So Vile

Iron Maiden. Dance of Death. Sometimes give it a listen.

art rock? isn't all rock art?
My first metal albums were Ride the Lightning and Train of Thought (if that counts), but the album that really got me into extreme metal was Nile's AotW.
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son (Iron Maiden) was the first metal album i listened to all the way through.
First metal album i bought was probably either Rust in Peace (Megadeth) or Peace Sells (Megadeth) listened to both all the way through. still listen to all of them.

To put it crudely, every hole is a goal.

The first one I bought that really got me into metal was The Black album when I was 15, and I still listen to it a lot, though I have also gotten into more metal bands, like Death, Children of Bodom and other Death Metal or thrash bands later on.

You're losing interest because you're simply not gay enough. Which leads me to believe you aren't cut out for metal.
My first metal album was hellbilly deluxe by rob zombie in 1998, i just loved it, i think i was 14 when i bought it, i dont listen to it much anymore but i still think is one of the best of purchases that i have ever made.
My first album had to be Powerslave from Iron Maiden, i was like 14 when i bought it lol it was at some vinyl store, so i bought it.. that was the number one album that got me into metal!
master of puppets at 16 2 years ago, i really wish i got into metal along time ago.. i remember kids wearing slayer shirts in 7th and 8th grade, until i was 16, i never had the opportunity of listening to true metal, i just thought it was this crazy thing. now i cant get enough

Same here. I still listen to also, and I still think that Damaged Inc. is one of the coolest songs of all time. Gonna be seventeen in less than a month, so I guess I'm going on three years of listening to metal. to another three.
