Wow, nice thread, it's interesting to read a little fun info about everyone :) Here's my filled savage form:

Name: Brynn for now ;)

Birthday: I was born in 1980 - that should suffice, you weren't going to bake me a cake anyway were you :D

Residence: Budapest, Hungary

How Did I Start Listening To Metal?
Good question, I can actually recall the exact moment vividly :) I was at a friend's house once and we were talking and he had some music on, and suddenly I just found myself listening to what was playing in the background. The beat was really good and I liked the tune as well, and the words went like "silently the silence calls in the fields of futile war..." :) And I was like, what's that? And he said: Iron Maiden.

I Like...
- Food: Wouldn't say no to a good lasagna :)
- Drink: Guinness, ciders
- Movies: I usually pick by actor and will watch and probably like anything with Edward Norton or Colin Firth in it
- Books: The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Worst Journey in the World, The Canterbury Tales, Ivanhoe
- Season: Festival season! :headbang
- Hobbies: Reading, listening to music (hence my filling in this form :) ), squats (the exercise), traveling, studying history/literature, astronomy

Music...
- Bands: Iron Maiden, Avantasia, used to like Nightwish too when they still had Tarja, Within Temptation, Luca Turilli. At the moment it's pretty much Avantasia 24/7 :razz
- Albums:
  • Iron Maiden: Brave New World
  • Iron Maiden: The X Factor
  • Nightwish: Wishmaster
  • Avantasia: The Metal Opera - this is the single best piece of music I have ever heard in my entire life.
- Songs:
  • Avantasia: Dweller in a Dream, Farewell, Avantasia, Breaking Away, The Final Sacrifice, Neverland, Savior in the Clockwork, just to name a few
  • Maiden: Too many to list, Dream of Mirrors is definitely on top of the list, so is Judas my Guide, Ancient Mariner, The Fugitive, Judas My Guide plus many many more
  • Within Temptation: Hand of Sorrow, A Dangerous Mind
  • Luca Turilli: Demonheart, Black Realm's Majesty
  • Manowar: Heart of Steel
- Singers: Bruce Dickinson is my absolute favourite voice
- Musicians: Well, Toby! The Metal Opera is the work of a real genius imo, the entire story, the characters, the music... It's something I had never heard before I came across Avantasia, and it really strikes a chord with me. Best genre ever, and Toby has an amazing talent for it.

Worst Nightmare: Nah, I don't even dare to write this down :cry

Place To Go:
Madrid 31/May :headbang Apart from festivals though I usually go towards the general direction of the British Isles for holiday if I can help it - I love the area.

Ok, let's assume I was applying to be a cover artist.

Name: Franziska W. (I need a pseudonym, haha)

Birthday: October 21st

Residence: Bochum (that's in western Germany)

How Did I Start Listening To Metal?
By listening to what my sister had borrowed from a friend of hers. It was Blind Guardian and Nightwish. I didn't like Blind Guardian at that point, but I liked Nightwish. Then she borrowed The Metal Opera pt. I from the same friend. My life changed.

I Like...

- Books: Tolkien's Silmarillion and certainly too many others
- Season: all of them
- Hobbies: drawing, painting, writing, baking, my studies, my cats, listening to music because I can't make any


Music...
- Bands: Avantasia, Edguy, Kamelot, Samsas Traum, ASP, Dead Can Dance, In Legend, Van Canto, Finntroll, Therion, many others.
- Albums: don't make me choose!
- Songs: no way you could EVER make me chose
- Singers: Tobi Sammet, Roy Khan, Tommy Karevik, André Matos, Jari Mäenpää, Jørn Lande, Lisa Pawelke, Meat Loaf, moar.
- Musicians: Thomas Youngblood, Bastian Emig

Worst Nightmare: I don't want to think about it and I'm not gonna tell you, either.

Place To Go: Denmark* because I miss the ymer, Ireland*, Wales, Scotland, Mayan ruins, North of Canada. *marks the places I've actually been to. Life is too short *sobs*.

Just saw I never did that so I think I'd do it now.

Name: Philipp

Birthday: August 08 1993

Residence: Germany

How Did I Start Listening To Metal? I don't know I think because of my father who's a 80s-Hair-Metal-Fan since his very early years and of course his passion went over on me with maybe his favourite (and long time my favourite - I think until Edguy came in) band Kiss. Then got to Iron Maiden and all this bands of the 80s.

Pizza - sadly I like the bad things most :D
- Drink: Coke Light or Beer :)
- Movies: Everything except of really cheese Hollywood-Blockbusters. I think I'm very into Asia-Movies espacially Park Chan-Wook's and Kim Jee-Woon's portfolios kick.
- Books: I think Tobi's biography will be the first book I've ever read :D
- Season: Spring! So fresh :D
- Hobbies: Listening to music, watching movies, playing videogames and MAYBE - something that could be named social life :D


Music...
- Bands:
Edguy, Avantasia, Theocracy, Powerwolf, Gamma Ray, Helloween, Cage The Elephant, Pantera, Kiss, Maiden, Rob Zombie, Ozzy Osbourne, Freedom Call, Lordi, Mötley Crüe, Dropkick Murphys, Volbeat,
- Albums: I don't know there are too much. I think the Wicked Trilogy is the best I've ever listened to.
- Songs: Definitely 'The Pride of Creation' and 'The Wicked Symphony'
- Singers: Tobias Sammet, Paul Stanley
- Musicians: Now I can say the best guitarist ever was Dimebag Darrell

Worst Nightmare: Things :D

Place To Go: I'd like to travel through the states one time. But it doesn't have to be so near in future :D
Who do you think you are to think you're of a better class?
Who do you think you are to expect us to KISS your a**?

How Did I Start Listening To Metal? Well you can blame my dad for that....from the time I was 3, he used to play AC/DC, Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath, KISS records etc....so i grew up listening to it, no surprise it became what I liked most :)

Place To Go:
well I have done a fair bit of travelling so I have crossed off a few places on my list. I have wanted to go to Japan for the last decade and I achieve that dream in 4 weeks time :)

How Did I Start Listening To Metal?
It just happened a few months ago when my boyfriend introduced me to Avantasia. Shame on me for not finding out earlier how brilliant it is. Since then, I try to get to know different metal bands to expand my spectrum. :)

I Like...
- Food: Dad's lasagne - best in the world!

- Movies: Lord of the Rings, Tom Hanks movies and the old Disney classics
- Books: Harry Potter and several other fantasy novels
- Season: I'm definitely a winter's child. Unless there's muddy un-snowy snow.

Music... you can say I'm in a musical identity crisis now. So there's almost everything from 80's rock to different kinds of metal. And I have a special love to Irish folk.

Worst Nightmare: anything that keeps me away from music - beginning with a bad cold that makes my voice leave me.

Place To Go: I dream of going back to Ireland. :)

Birthday: 31st May 1992

Residence: near Weimar (Germany)

How Did I Start Listening To Metal?
it just happened somehow ... I guess it started about 10 years ago when some of my mother's friends gave her Metal Opera Part 1 as a birthday gift. I really liked that sound but didn't realize how awesome it actually was (I was 13 at that time). Later a good friend introduced me to Sonata Arctica and Stratovarius and that's when I fell in love with that music.

I Like...
- Food: pizza, nachos, lasagne, sushi, curry and some of the healthy stuff
- Drink: cuba libre, sprite, peppermint tea
- Movies: The Crow (all time favorite), Dragonheart, Nightmare On Elm Street (the old ones with Robert Englund), nearly all Marvel movies, Tim Burton movies
- Books: The Hobbit
- Season: spring
- Hobbies: in the words of Steel Panther: "fuck all night and party all day" :cool


Music...
- Bands: Steel Panther, Edguy, Avantasia, Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius
- Albums: Feel The Steel, Hellfire Club, Rocket Ride, Ecliptica, Winterhearts Guild, Nemesis
- Songs: The Burden of Being Wonderful, Lavatory Love Machine, Fullmoon, Eagleheart, Hunting High and Low
- Singers: Michael Starr, Tobias Sammet, Timo Kotipelto
- Musicians: Lexxi Foxx, Satchel ...

Worst Nightmare:
already happened. I met the guys of Steel Panther and totally forgot how to speak (more or less) proper English. :eek

I like your choice of movies. The Crow is one of the coolest movies ever shot.

Worst Nightmare:

Guess what happened when I met Bruce Dickinson.
Total brain-freeze :lol:

And thanks again for the warm welcome :D After I've already written some comments I thought it might be a good idea to introduce myself.
I noticed that I forgot some really great musicians, for example Sebastian Bach and his band Skid Row, Jani Lane (Warrant), Poison, Treat ... I'm addicted to 80's stuff :lol:

The Crow is my favorite movie since ... all along. I watched it first when I was a child (yes, my mother allowed me to watch dark and brutal movies 8) ) but of course I didn't understand it. I just liked the guy with the long dark hair and his crow. Later I realized that it was Brandon Lee and that he really died in an accident while shooting this movie :(
