I missed out on putting this up yesterday, but I manged to get out of the house for a little while and head over to a local CD Warehouse where I went on the hunt for two new CDs. I thought I would want to mention what those CDs were.
  • Avenged Sevenfold: Nightmare
  • H.I.M: Screamworks: Love in Theory and Practice
Here are my thoughts on the CDs.

I am a wolf who loves foreign metal. And H.I.M's new CD is certainly an add-on to any collection for love metal. I especially love the songs Disarm Me (With Your Loneliness), Scared to Death, and Ode to Solitude. And I want to mention this, if anyone has any intention on picking up a H.I.M CD, you might want to do it soon. The recording company "Sire Records" called it quits with H.I.M. Here's another interesting fact, I found the logo to Reprise Records on their album as well. Does this mean that Reprise Records has taken up the band H.I.M? I'm going to stay on top of this, but I think this will be an interesting add to this company since Reprise owns one of my favorite bands, Disturbed.

Another CD that I picked up was Avenged Sevenfold's Nightmare. I've heard the song Nightmare, and seen the video countless times, not to mention the fact that I've heard the song Welcome To The Family quite a few times on a local cumulus radio station. Let me be the first to say I think this album actually needs some work on. Nightmare was a good song, but I actually lost interest in the album after the 3rd or 4th song. Is it me, or did the death of their drummer just made me think the album could've gotten better? I may have to do some more research on some more Avenged Sevenfold songs to compare sounds with this new album. But honestly, I think this CD needs to stay on the shelf. That is, unless you're used to this sort of music (in that being Avenged Sevenfold). If that is the case, then I can get use to them...

Does anybody have these two albums? If so, I want your input...does H.I.M's music seem different from the last album (Venus Doom) or does Avenged Sevenfold still have what it takes to continue without the best drummer they've ever had? Let me know what you think.

I would just like to say that this is the very first post of a brand new community devoted entirely to both metal...and furries. Do you have that specific animal in your life that loves the guitar rift of a guitar god, or the love of the lyrics created by the vocalist? Does your animal (like mine) love true american metal, or does your animal love all those from around the world? Does your furry love to zone out to Pink Floyd, or does your animal love to bang it's furry head to Disturbed? Furries, this is the place to expose the true metal side of the furry fandom.

I created this with one purpose in mind: To create a side of the furry fandom that loves Rock and Roll, rather it be classic, heavy, love, death, black, rap, screamo, etc. But I've always wanted to know, who out there besides me, loves rock, but also enjoys being apart of the furry fandom? Does anyone out there enjoy the same music as I do?

Well, now is the time to find out. I want to see some true metal furries out there that love the heaviest of heavy (music, that is). Feel free to join the community to discuss all that is new in the furry fandom and metal. To get started, let me talk a little about myself.

I am Shadowwolf676 (check out my LiveJournal for more), and two of the biggest things that I love are furries, and metal. I got started in metal in 2005 and have ever since wanted to listen to the best in the metal heads. But it wasn't until 2006 that I purchased my very first album from Linkin Park called "Hybrid Theory". Ever since listening to the album, I've purchased albums from Godsmack, Disturbed, H.I.M., Dimmu Borgir, 5 Finger Death Punch, Nine Inch Nails, Pink Floyd, Linkin Park, Three Days Grace, and Slipknot just to name a few. There are some bands out there that I don't have albums to, and I want to know first hand, what you guys out there think of certain bands and their style of music. Does it earn the "devil horns" or does it deserve to stay on the shelf?

It wasn't until this past January that I became a furry (and ever since then, I'm damn proud of it). I opened myself up to something new, and I've been welcomed with open paws. I enjoy the fandom for the fun, for the conventions, and for the excitement. As for myself, I am a rocker wolf. And ever since joining the fandom, I've had the sheer pleasure to sit down at the computer, pop in a metal CD, and just browse around. I find that metal is my escape, and so is the furry fandom. Metal helps me to think, while the furry fandom helps me to be me.   

Feel free to post anything about metal or furries, or...BOTH! Got some important news to talk about (maybe it's a band's breakup, a band's loss of a band mate, or certain concerts that you look to enjoy), share it here. Maybe you look to head to a convention or meet and you want a suggestion on what to listen to. Anything metal, and anything furry fandom is open to here.

Welcome all!
