That's cool. I have kind of fell behind lately on the metal I need to catch up. I got the As Blood Runs black album but don't know too many more of those bands, I will check them out. You should check out some of the ones I listen as well I'm sure some of your bands were influenced by them.
Hell yeah man. You into a lot of metal or what? I am into in pretty big myself. I like death metal, thrash, grindcore and pretty much all sub-genres. Some of my favorites are Cannibal Corpse, The Red Chord, Black Dahlia Murder, Job for a Cowboy and the list goes on.
