    What do you do?:
    - Work. Home Depot.

    What deck are you in?:
    - Have no clue. I just bought the tickets with a few buddies of mine and really haven't looked into what cabin we got.

    What do you like to do in your spare time?:
    - Mainly anything with music, sports, and sometimes video games.

    What's a creepy thing I can say when I see you that no stranger should know and will weird you out that I do?
    - I have no clue. Take a swing at it and see if you find something.

    I know this question may irritate you, I know what it's like since everyone always assumes Canadians all somehow know each other, but...

    Metalwrath, do you know Matt, Kieran and Layla? They're a group of 3 travelling Irish metalheads, I met them in 2007 and they're going again this year.

    Nope.
    To be honest i don't like most Irish metalheads and when i go to festivals in different countries i try to avoid hanging out with irish people.
    Defeats the purpose in traveling abroad if i went to another country and hung around with them.
    This year is actually my first time going to Metalcamp.I never really go to the same festivals every year cause i try to see as many bands i love as i can.

    Well not quite avoid but lets just say i don't travel abroad to hang around with random Irish people.
    If i wanted to do that i could stay in Ireland and go to a local pub.
    I have more interest in people from other countries and their cultures.

    YEAH. It's an unfair question. No one has only 5 fav. metal bands. It just aint right. I wanted to put more, but, it's just too many.

    What first got you into metal?
    I first got into metal, like everyone else with Metallica. I remember trying to play the Black Album with couple of friends (in Dominican Republic...my birthplace) with acoustic guitars. I didn't know the term metal or anything. Back then everything for me was "rock" or "rock pesado" (heavy rock). I heard other bands like Helloween, Iron Maiden and Blind Guardian and the likes. I then hit a hardcore punk phase, when I got to the states. I had this channel called MTVX that played nothing but rock music with no VJ's.. in their I saw more Iron Maiden and Helloween, Cradle of Filth (I was actually scared when I saw their video for Her Ghost in the Fog..never seen something like that) and other metal bands...the punk phase started to die out. It died completely when I started to listen to Blind Guardian more 'cause I caught their music video on MuchMusic (way before it turned into MuchMusic USA and then Fuse) for Mirror Mirror. Now I listen too much metal (not limited to it) check out my last.fm page for more details: www.last.fm/user/ghostxonxstage

    Play any instruments?

    I agree, but Metalwrath posted that he is not interested in meeting other irishmen on the cruise. :lol:

    well I guess that counts me out. My biological grandfather (Shelby McCool) hailed from Dublin and migrated to the USA in 1852 or something like that.

    :)

    Diablo 2 was my thing...I never dared to play WoW, but I had top level sorcs, paladin and druid with enough legit gear in other mule accounts that I should've sold it somewhere instead of just letting the account expire. Maybe we can set up a LAN party on the beach? :headbanger:

    I lost a few years of my life to this as well. Always Warlock, and always for the Horde. I'm kind of glad Blizzard has given me my life back. :D

    Hey guys, I'm new to the board and I thought what better way to introduce myself than replying to this thread? I'm super stoked on this tour and I can't wait to rock out, party and get fucking hammered with you all.

    City/country:

    London, Ontario, Canada

    Age (optional):
    24

    What first got you into metal?

    I've ALWAYS preferred the heavier stuff as a kid, but I really got into the NU-Metal scene when I was in grade school. I loved bands like Korn, Limp Bizkit, the Deftones, etc (ashamed to admit it now) but for me, Nu-Metal was the stepping stone that introduced me to the good (and TR00) stuff...It all changed when I was 14. A good friend of mine lent me his copy of Iron Maiden's "Best of the Beast" CD. It was seriously the best shit I had ever heard and I've been a hardcore metal-head ever since.

    Play any instruments?
    I'm a guitar player. I played in a Melo-Death band a few years back called Eddowes Stride. Now, I just play for fun. Rock out to covers and jam with friends. :shred:

    Top 10 bands?

    Iron Maiden
    Tool
    Mastodon
    Judas Priest
    Amon Amarth
    Dark Tranquillity
    Opeth
    Death
    Iced Earth
    Sonata Arctica

    What do you do?
    I work full-time for a multimedia company. I'm a video editor/Animator. I love my job.

    Spare Time?
    Drinking, Partying, Playing Guitar, Hitting the Gym and playing video games.

    What deck are you on?
    M

    What's a creepy thing I can say when I see you that no stranger should know and will weird you out that I do?
    Uhhhhhh......I can move my ears around with my mind...It's an amazing talent that's served me well...
