Okay I posted a thread about planning on seeing Meshuggah as my foray back into metal and it got me thinking on a tangent.
When introducing your friends to metal do you start with a certain genre? Do you start with "gateway" bands? Do you start with what you are currently listening to? Do you show them your all time favourites? Do you suggest albums or tracks? For specific bands do you go with their current material, or their first or what you think is their best work?
The reason I ask this is that I literally have been in a hole for about 20 years with regards to metal and having felt the urge to return I find the music landscape alien and have no idea where to start.
just crank some cannibal corpse
