Heavy Metal Starts Young
My son Damien and a friend head banging at a metal concert. We were at a small venue at Music Head in Medford Oregon, listening to the jam of our friends in Negative Zen a band from Portland Oregon. My son is 10 and has been listening to heavy metal since birth (my husband picked the music, Dream Theater), saw his first metal concert at 2 months old, wrote his first lyrics for a metal song at four called Bloody Toe, learned to play the drums at five, and since he got his first stereo has been blasting Metallica, Mega Death, and Slayer along with dream Theater. Please close your door or turn down the volume, so he closes the door. I am not going to hinder his creative side, and if he wants to sing and play along with the songs I wont hinder his artistic nature. Even though I still am on a journey to understanding heavy metal.
