Hello all. I’ve always been intrigued by rolling-release distributions, especially Arch Linux, but I never really stuck to them for long. I suppose they all seemed to lack a special something. Then comes along my discovery of ArchLabs, which was easy to install with perfect defaults for theming and a minimal set of packages in the .iso and is pure Arch Linux at its core. I had been using Debian Sid the longest before ArchLabs, but decided it wasn’t for me anymore. I have come to prefer Arch’s approach to packaging and package management compared to Debian’s. Pacman is simply superb. A little about me: I like metal, dubstep, anime (as if not already apparent by my avatar), manga, reading (primarily non-fiction) and science.
Hello and welcome.
I too like Metal, reading and science
Awesome!! Don’t hate me, but I listen to Metalcore and Deathcore the most. I don’t get all the hate in the metal community against those subgenres specifically. I can understand certain bands but not the subgenres themselves. I listen to Parkway Drive, Of Mice & Men, Infant Annihilator and Rings of Saturn often. I do like Black Metal too though!
I’m not a fan of either of those genres, but each to their own.
I mostly listen to either Black Metal or Death Metal.
Ah, more of a purist I see. Nothing wrong with that!
Not quite a purist as I listen to nearly everything Metal related. I do usually avoid, Metalcore, Deathcore and Power Metal
Noted! I listen to many different Metal subgenres myself, the ones noted above just happen to be what I enjoy most.
And that’s all that matters
After almost 25 years as a Metalhead I have learned to have thick skin when it comes to other people and the shit I get for being a Metalhead. I know that I listen to the superior music genre at the end of the day.
I sympathize with you! Although people are often surprised I even listen to metal because I don’t fit the stereotype of a metalhead. But who cares about stereotypes? Do and listen to what you love.
Absolutely!! My man, haha. \m/
ha same here!!
Welcome to the family \m/
Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone!
Welcome to the insane asylum @InJustOnePunch! Just kidding! There’s plenty of great people on this forum. I’m into science big time, something to do with my field I guess, which makes me kinda dangerous. Anyway, I digress, welcome aboard and hope you like this forum. AL is the best distro with a great base, Arch.
Welcome from the not-really-metalhead side of the forum catch ya later!
Science! Reading! Great stuff. I like metal but im not a metal head - just a music lover in general. Welcome!
Deep down you are. Search inside your feelings @philT, there you will see the darkside and realise its awesome power.
You know what @Dobbie03? You are right! Just as soon as I figure out which of the 200 genres of metal Im listening to.
