Most good forums have one, so why not Metal Underground? There's bound to be some lurkers on this board who just read and never take part in the discussions, so this can be a place for them to pop their posting cherry by introducing themselves. Newbies, feel free to tell us a little about yourselves- favorite metal and non-metal artists, interests, occupation, breast/shlong size, etc.

Older members should take part by discussing whatever common ground they may have with the newbies, or simply offering a friendly greeting. Ideally we will make them feel welcome and encourage posting/more posters.

So, dooooo eeeeet :)

I guess i'll start this off.

So my name's ryan and i've been lurking here for a few months now. This is one of the only websites my school doesn't block so i'm on almost everyday. I'm a junior in highschool and i like to play guitar, video games, and listen to music.

If it wasn't for this thread i probably wouldn't have ever signed up.

Sweet, it's working already, haha.

Hey there Ryan, I also happen to enjoy the art of shredding. That is neat, haha. How long you been playing?

Hey Ryan, welcome to the site. Some of us, like myself, are fairly young, but then there's also lots of old farts like americanpatriot, Blindgreed, etc. Old people are gross. :P Watch out for them... touching them might give you leprosy OR you might get your youth drained! Ohhh and godlike is an old person too. lol

Welcome. Good to hear from the lurkers too :-) Feel free to join in some discussions around here or in the news comments.

Welcome to the mighty MU Ryan. Don't pay any attention to IN, she's sexually repressed as well as a complete head case so she can't be trusted for anything other than writing for deathbringer.

SJ: Where you been (don't say Australia Oz)?

Feb 3, 2010 9:48 AM ET #10 (permalink)

Let's keep this one open for intro's too, without derailing it into a chat thread about other stuff :-)

BTW - I'm gonna make this one a "sticky." Now I need to get off my ass and make an icon to show it's sticky.

Hello, my name is FAN, and I'm new to this site. So far, i think this place sucks, Metal sucks and people who type out sarcastic comments about metal sites suck.

oh, and Blindgreed is a dirty tramp-o-potomus.

Hi. I'm a talking banana. Please don't eat me. Unless you want excruciatingly painful chronic diarrhoea.

I decided to take a shot at this lol
Hi, my name is Nuno, from Portugal, im new to this site even tho' i read some articles from time to time, but this year i decided to join the newsletter and at the same time get involved in the forum, basecly cos ive seen so many awsome people out here which i can actualy learn something from them, as in music and in culture.
Im part of a new project/band since 2008 that re-united some old friends from older bands, the band name is Tear Sun Cried, its kinda alternative/nu/power metal (yeah i know too many genres probably wont stick XD ), we have the luck to have players of other great bands Concealment, Love After, and some of the line up from Nullness Pulse(which i was a former member) as other great musicians who gave theyr contribution to the cause since we are currently in studio recording the very first album.
Im bass player since 1995/96, and this is the intrument that defines my whole being as a musician, dont ask me why, it just completes me!
My music "taste" varies alot, i can hear almost everything since opera to any kind of metal, the music style that defines me the most is metal, probably 'cos i started to listen to bands like maiden since my early years of life.

I'm the old young guy or whatever... erm... well, 33 soon so.. and I've been around since around '06.
I guess this is one of those moments when I should have kept lurking instead of commenting...
Oh well, in any case, I fully agree with FAN

Feb 5, 2010 10:13 AM ET #18 (permalink)

Welcome aboard to all the new members.
You have now become members of the coolest fucking metal site on the net\m/\m/
Sadly, I have to admit that Im one of the elders around here... I just turned 41 about two weeks ago :(

I'm KC, 22, college student, been lurking here for a few months. I never join discussion boards because of the bored sarcastic assholes with nothing better to do than sit around and antagonize people over the internet, but this site seems to be different =) Also, people here in Portland are STILL stuck in the grunge era and none of my friends listen to metal, no matter how hard I try to get them into it. Nice to see I'm not the only lurker!

Feb 6, 2010 6:26 PM ET #20 (permalink)

Not so new member :) the youngest member unless anyone wants to claim otherwise since I'm 15. I love metal but listen to a lot of rock too...
I'm from the UK, near London, and love reading and being part of the tech team at school (sound, lights and video crew). Even though I'm a normal member, I lurk often because I don't know what to say as has been evident from my about 5 month absence :)

Welcome to everyone new though :)

Feb 7, 2010 12:05 AM ET #21 (permalink)

Dang DeadBeat, might I say, you're a looker.

Feb 7, 2010 12:15 AM ET #22 (permalink)

I haven't been on this site for a cold minute so allow me to reintroduce myself...

On second thought, simply view my profile if you're interested.

A nice warm welcome for the newcomers!

HI rockers.... Im a new comer.

Feb 7, 2010 12:00 PM ET #24 (permalink)

Nemesis, Unholy, LDB, and Razor: Welcome. As godlike pointed out, you've see the rest and this is the best. Make yourself at home. I very much enjoy smashing trolls like LDB mentioned, but I can only take it as far as DB lets me. ;-) Anyway, come on in and make yourselves at home. We're a fun group.

FAN/Wof: I completely resemble that remark.
