Never listened to Metallica before about August, and I think it's a very good modern metal album.

Pretty much! Like, I knew Enter Sandman and stuff.

When I started listening to metal, I went in backwards. My first bands were black metal/grindcore. Only after a couple years of that stuff, did I listen to normal stuff. Never listened to Priest until this year, about March maybe.

Well for the year-end list (voting goes up January 1st like always, folks), you'll need to kill Demon Entrails and find a new 10th. Only new material permitted.
