I have no idea why I remember the date, but I do. I joined the IMBB (Iron Maiden Bulletin Board) on May 13th, 2003, where I spent countless hours posting about Maiden and metal and all sorts of bullshit with a bunch of you here. When HTE left to create this site, I didn't join right away, but after a few months I signed up since quite a few of the other big names from there moved here.

Anywho, I know I don't really know many of the current posters on this board, but to those who I do know, and have known since the IMBB, just wanted to say it's been fun! I've made a lot of good friends on the boards over the years. Strange to think some of you have "known" me since I was 15; I've "known" Brad since he was 13! Hahaha

That's all, folks!

It has been a very long time, past 2003 for a few even. Personally, I remember a couple of versions of the IMBB (before the IMFC even started) and a few of those folks are still about. Many who came from that community seeded this one in the early years. There is a lot of history in the older threads!

In case anyone was wondering, metalsetlists was originally registered on July 22nd, 2004. We were live shortly thereafter.

Man that is ridiculous, I was barely even into metal at that point!

Thanks for helping make this little community what it is though! :D

10 years uhhh ... what I like most about this site and why I keep coming here is the passion of everyone about heavy metal. Course we don't always agree on stuff but everyone is really into it. We've lost a few over ther years (ADD, HECHO,TP to name a few) gain a few too but as long as the passion will be here I'll keep coming...

and , everyone needs to realise that all those fucking bands are absolute shit compared to Iron Maiden ! :tongue:


Cheers !

I was going to write an 'In Memoriam' list in my post, but didn't :tongue: ADD, HECHO, Allen, Bouville, Overkiller, Div, and so on. :light:

What's even more fucked is I was a member the 01-02 Maiden boards.

If I remember right, this place was borne out of the frustration (in part) that Maiden was set to charge for their boards. Hell, I remember the day and very second when they shut the free boards down, I was wondering who the last post would come from. They told everyone to save their PM's and say their goodbye's.

I haven't been back since, no way I'm paying for that 'privilege'.

Yeah shutting down the IMBB was such a big mistake on their part.

It was more about a concern about losing thread / data / reviews as the IMBB transitioned at various times. Going deep into this archives to check on an ancient thread, I found: "The Offical IMBB Decompression & IMOC Discussion Thread". Date: March of 2006, a bit less than two years after metalsetlists started. Me, I was a member of the IMOC / IMFC for at least a couple years after that.

10 years holy shit....well that was the year I started to get into real metal as I was turned onto Metallica and actually saw them live for the first time.

Side note: I was part of the IMOFC boards back in 2008; I had fun time there as there were some cool people but I thought having to pay for access was dumb, and left a year later when I couldn't afford to re-new my membership

Yeah when the IMBB transitioned in to the IMOC, I was about half way through a year subscription with the fan club so I used it until my sub was up. Just wasnt the same as the IMBB.

Heh, I can say ten years ago I knew next to nothing about metal and heavy music. Amazing how things have changed. Here's to another ten years.

I was 14 ten years ago and listening to Slipknot, Mudvayne, Slayer, Cannibal Corpse, and Cradle of Filth :lol: . I thought I was a badass for knowing who Cradle of Filth was :)

I think I remember hearing about that forum on a different forum I was on, which was a Wrestling forum. Oh those were the days............. :D

I remember the last day or two everyone was just posting images from a site called ratemypoop.com or something. :lol:

Wow. Ten years ago I was 11 and had just gotten into rock/metal. The only bands I listened to were AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Linkin Park and Black Sabbath. :lol:

Wow. Just realized how young some people are here.

Let's see, 10 years ago. 17, and was a longtime metalhead already. Just hadn't gotten into much death metal other than Cannibal Corpse.

Haha, oh man, the IMBB. I joined up about two months after you did SLA. I think we're about the same age. It kinda sucks. When we first showed up here, we were kids. Now we're old.

Fuck that ;)

Glad this place is still rocking though :rocker:
