A journey into music from 1997 - 2012 part 1: the record store discovery...

Yes, I know... I've made a post a while ago that "explained" my dabblings into heavy music and where it all started, but it was way too short IMHO. Not that I will bore you with too much little crappy details, ha-ha...

The part of me going through the bins at record stores and being frightened by some of the album covers in the "hard" departement should be a good start.

I've been always into music and when I was younger I spent hours & hours in record stores. Sometimes my parents just left me there, imagine the look in the eyes of the staff lol.

Anyway, my life had just changed: I was crazy about Aerosmith and I desperately needed all of their albums. At this point I only had Nine Lives, which is incredibly underrated btw.

I searched for "hard" and soon found my then favourite band's records. But wait.. Aerosmith was in the same bins as Cannibal Corpse, Carcass, Napalm Death, etc etc? (I didn't know these bands obviously -yet) Hm... Those albums looked disgusting (the hell did I know, I was like 12). I quickly searched for others, and promised myself that I would never listened to that "ugly sh*t"...

I was very skeptical: I remember holding a greatest hits album by Kiss (their 1500th or so) and thought "this is nothing for me".

As time passed, I found out that Metal & Hardrock are extremely diverse. Aardschok Magazine from Holland was a big help in this; I first bought it at the end of 2001 and I went to a Metal recordstore in Vosselaar which had an advertisement in it. I picked up three albums (including Children Of Bodom's second) and was off & running.

My RNB days weren't coming back. It never meant a thing anyway.
