That was back in the day when I only downloaded music song-by-song instead of by album, so I had only those singular metal songs for a long time. I couldn't name each one off, but when I happen upon them, I remember that they were included in that batch. Couple of examples are En Vind Av Sorg from Darkthrone, Key To The Gate by Burzum, Infinite Plateau by Velvet Cacoon, Inner War by Antaeus, etc. I went into metal backwards - didn't really get turned onto Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Metallica until pretty late in my "listening career"
I think it's really surprising that you could like some of this stuff having no previous background with metal. Interesting.
