Allow me to introduce myself

I have always played with the idea of starting some sort of blog but never really knew whether in the form of Vlogs or standard Blogs. As you can see I finally decided and voilà: Keeping it Metal! was born. On this site I will talk about (if you haven't already guessed) metal in all its variations. But before I'll go deeper into this I wanna tell you something about myself.

I am 18.
I am Austrian.
I like good music (99% of this so-called "good music" being metal).

Before I was introduced to metal I've been listening to musical groups I'm still ashamed of.

When I was around 10 or 11 and started attending a new school I befriended somebody who changed the way I look at music forever. Through him I was introduced to Iron Maiden, as we listened to it on disk record the first time I visited him.

I liked Eddie. Very much. Still do.

So Iron Maiden was the first real metal band I've ever listened to (consciously). And I loved them. I didn't know any names of the songs nor the band members and I didn't care. It was fucking awesome.

One thing led to another and soon I got to know Blind Guardian, Hammerfall, In Flames, Arch Enemy, AC/DC (which I had known before already, but as I said: Iron Maiden, consciously and stuff; you know), Deep Purple, Mötley Crüe, Motörhead, and so forth. 

No matter how old or which singer's at front. Gotta fuckin' love 'em!

So about 1,5 years ago suddenly this genius thought entered my mind: "Hey, if I really like all these bands... and I want to support them ... Why the FUCK do I keep downloading all their songs from teh interwebz?". So I started buying and collecting CD's and I am still collecting and buying 'em. Also I think this blog is a great opportunity for me to write down my newest acquisitions and my thoughts about them in the form of short reviews.

Which leads me to my blog and the content I intend to put up here.
I think it's important to state my musical preferences first:

I love Power Metal, Heavy Metal, Hard Rock, (Melodic) Death Metal, Progressive Power Metal, Speed Metal, some Industrial Metal and Thrash Metal. 

There are no genres I really HATE, but there are some I don't like and try to avoid at any cost: Those being all the genres ending in "-core". I'm sorry to disappoint some of you. I just can't warm the fuck up to them. I will rage on this matter in further blogs anyway (I just decided this second).

My absolute favorite band of all time?!?!?!?!

Doesn't exist. 
It's subject to change, but the band I listen to the most at the time and which I can turn on all the time to have a good time is Blind Guardian. (about which my first real Blog post will be about).

I will try my best to keep this blog as high in quality as possible and I will try to make it funny and entertaining for you. I will talk about CD's, Bands, about some songs in particular. I will rage about some topics and and and. Let's see.

So, now you know something about me, something about my preferred music, and something about my history and about my intentions. 

I hope you will have a fun time reading!
See you fucking soon on the blog !
