I'm a little surprised you weren't already into vader! I got in at de profundiis in 95, and they instantly scratched that band that's been as consistent as vader over all these years
And happy canada day to all you Canadian head bangers \m/
No, you're totally right. I somehow just always passed them by. I'm an anomaly. Most of my friends don't listen to metal. I've always just like it.
I had a "bad attitude" about DM until a few years ago. But, then I finally must broke down and starting listening to different stuff and realized that a lot of it really wasn't to far away from a heavier thrash. Maybe some stuff like At the Gates and The Haunted. And, the prog influences of Opeth, and various bands Martin Van Drunen was in all of which I really enjoy.
BM I can take with all kinds of extremity, but some brutal DM makes me tune out. Other so called brutal DM I like right away. But, I need some kind of a hook or way to get inside what can at first feel like an impenetrable fortress. And, good old fashioned slayer riffs are a good entry for me.
So, I probably heard Vader, DM, and I thought nah. But, I didn't realize how good there were.
I tend to be more open minded now!
