Back when i was a Metal Noob i thought Death Metal was not music, but just a joke,
The song really got me into metal was Dragonforce - My Spirit Will Go On, My friend send it to me. I liked it and listened alot of Dragonforce. Then i heard Trivium and thats what i really liked. I bought thier two albums which they had back then and decided to play guitar, I started to listen ALOT of more bands now.(Especially Death-Metal)
Don't get me wrong, i still like Trivium and i don't know why everybody hates it so much.
