I've already posted a few times, but might as well formally introduce myself. My name's Kellen and I'm from USA (Maryland). I've been following Strappado on the blog and youtube for quite some time now since I started really digging deep into NWOBHM. I've found countless awesome bands thanks to him. Other than that, my favorite kind of metal is epic style like Manilla Road and Atlantean Kodex.

Hi all,

Tom from Norway here. Big fan of black metal (of course, being a Norwegian I pretty much have to) and everything from old school hard rock, progressive rock, metal (too many variants to mention) and currently looking to complete some of my collections :)

Site looks great so I'm hoping I'll figure out how to download soon :P

I don't remember is I did this or not. I was a just a visitor for a while. But once I realized how the majority of the members are just true metalheads, and not metal elitists, I became a lot more active.

Anyway, I'm Robb. I'm a 41 year old metalhead who loves pretty much all types of metal, but mostly 70s and 80s stuff. Demos especially. I started trading demos around 1984 or 1985. Can't remember that far back. So if there are demos that are needed, I'll do my best to help out.

Hey all,

Found this site today on a N.W.O.B.H.M. link trail, pretty excited for another forum addiction. Recent record collector, as much as my salary permits. I play in a few bands that i'd like to show ya'll, and am otherwise pretty excited to hear obscure gems in traditional/speed/NWOBHM/thrash! Cheers!

Hey everyone, made this account a while back with the intention of getting Gotham City's 1983 demo and so I've finally come around to posting more often. Well I'm a 17 year old metalhead from Puerto Rico, I've been getting stuff from strappado's blog and such for a long time now so I think it's about time that I participated in it.
