Meow! Heavy Metal Cat here. Been prowling the Metal Music Archives site for a little while now and have decided to move in.

I love metal, cats and walks in the countryside, especially forests. I'm guessing you're more interested in the metal though. I like a little of everything, but mostly I enjoy heavy, power, thrash, speed, black, doom and death metal (I especially like tech-death) bands. I'm sure I have a few bands in my collection from every style though. Powerful vocals (sung or growled) are usually what attracts me to a band, or solid riffs. I'm actually usually more impressed by riffs than soloing. I've been into metal for a few years now. Iron Maiden was my first band (cliche, I know) and it's all kicked off from there.

Looking forward to chatting with you all!

Welcome to MMA. I hope you find a home here like we did Tongue. Eclectic taste in music is always a positive in my World. Sounds like you listen to a bit of everything.

Thank you for the warm welcome UMUR.

I've encountered people before who seem to write off entire genres completely but I find that even the genres I don't usually enjoy produce a few groups that I really like (which in turn makes me want to explore that genre more).

No worries, dogs are cool too. We have both in my household. The cat is more likely to chase the dog actually.

To be honest metalcore and by extension deathcore etc are not genres I know that much about. I like a few bands from them (I'm especially fond of Born of Osiris) but I need to explore it all some more.
