I did get a few funny looks from the 'yung uns' at a Slipknot gig a couple of years ago. Not often you see a mid 40s woman in a mosh pit! By the end of the gig, 3 of them wanted me to adopt them

I used them as an example of the age thing rather getting into the pedants of who's metal and who's not

I'm 52 and still play metal,but it depends on what you call metal,after all it is subjective.Our generation remembers when metal came to be,so why wouldn't we like it?That being said,I'll go out on a big limb and say that what passes for metal these days is generic growling,except for a few progressive metal bands it seems to be more about the tatts , piercings and manufactured anger than actual songs or musicianship.I'm still listening,somebody new please impress me.


There is a GREAT point made here...metal (and music in general) IS very subjective. I totally agree. I actually didn't really start listening to music until I was 14, which is also when I started playing guitar. Right off the bat, I started using Megadeth as a starting point; I learned fast and Dave Mustaine quickly became a huge influence of mine. Now, the list of guitarists (which inclued a LOT of metal musicians) who have influenced my playing style is HUGE. Megadeth will always hold a very special place in my heart and cd player though...

The big point is that a lot of people don't consider a lot of metal bands to be just that...metal. I've met people who didn't consider Megadeth metal, because they don't use down-tuned seven string guitars and scream like crazy. I know people who don't consider Led Zep or Black Sabbath metal for the same reason. I've played in a band with guys who didn't believe a metal band to be metal unless they use crazy solos. I think metal is a huge style of music and probably one of the most subjective.

Personally, I don't like a lot of the older metal bands. There are a few I'm into, but not that many; I go for the newer stuff, because it is 95% of what I listened to while learning to play guitar. I will argue tooth and nail that the bands I listen to today are metal; styles of music change and expand over time. A lot of newer bands bring a different sound to the table, but they're still metal. Just a different sort and there is nothing wrong with that.

Now that I've written a freaking essay, to the point! *laughs* A few years ago, I went with my parents to St. Martens, England to be there for my aunt's wedding. I think I had an older In Flames album and my mother (57 at the time) gave it a listen and really got into it. Now, she is 61 and a total metal head. Metal knows no age! *laughs* She is probably the biggest Shadows Fall fan I know...

JUDAS PRIEST, now thats the perfect discription of metal.from old school to new school they can hold their own. I think zep and sabbath were heavy rock but J.P. bought the metal into the fore.
Mastadon rule as well. And Aussie band Dream Killers are fab too.

Music is a state of mind not a state of age. Turn it up and go for it regardless of your age!

Oh yes. I like it when I'm at an intersection as Jimmy Page cranks one out and notice kids pointing. Hah, I sat forty feet away from him and his famous band. TWICE. Some day they'll be pointing again when I'm playing air guitar in my rest home wheelchair as they empty my bedpan.

It does not matter what kind of music you like....it just has to reach your soul....although I have to admit.....rock and metal were my music of choice in high school...but I appreciate all music.....well maybe not rap....but to each his own.

Gah, down with CoF and Dimmu!

They're like... poseur Black Metal.

Try Marduk, Venom or Nargaroth. That's real Black Metal, not cheesy pop culture Black Metal.
