I went to a high school where my own race didn’t like me much so I spent a lot of time hanging out with the goth and skater people of a different race and class. Their music became my music. I grew so fond of it, it soothed my angst-riddled pre-psychotic soul. I was a girl from the high crime urban areas who would blast Korn, Pantera, and Megadeth while the rest of the neighborhood thrived on gangster rap (I now have an appreciation for that music, too, but metal is in my blood).
Then, I got psychotic in my 20’s and Korn’s album kept sending me into paranoid fits (I’ll See You On the Other Side album was very beautiful but triggering for me). I had to cut back on the metal and Manson…luckily, I found Abilify and BAM MORE METAL THANK YOU ABILIFY! I really like the videos listed here! I don’t get exposed to a lot of metal now, I mostly just relisten to my fave songs, so this is awesome! Just finished listening to the live version of Eraser and I LOVE Amerakin Overdose’s Letting Go!
This thread is awesome, thank you o.p…and all the contributors!
