Sixth Metalversary

Laughing Man


on this day six years ago I made my first foray into the world of heavy metal music with the album As Daylight Dies by Killswitch Engage.


up to that point I'd really only listened to generic radio rock and alternative bands. I heard their rather misleading single “Starting Over” on the radio and really liked it, but the album that was from wasn’t out yet, so I picked up As Daylight Dies from Walmart one night instead. as soon as the first song started I was floored. I’d never heard anything like it before. wasn’t sure whether I loved or hated what I was hearing at first, but eventually it grew to be the former.


my tastes have changed and diversified a lot since then, but that album really opened up a whole new musical world for me and it'll always hold a special place in my heart. gonna listen to it tonight to mark the occasion.

Music rituals are always a thing; I find myself listening to specific things to mark specific occasions too. I don't really have an experience similar to your picking up that album - save for maybe getting a recording of Chopin's nocturnes - but nonetheless, enjoy the listening.
