I have been raised in a house where pianos and violins are played to no end, yet my brother and I later then discovered metal. We loved it, legends such as Metallica, Iron maiden, Slayer and Megadeth filled our teenage years. We still practice and listen to Classical works, but are still avid listeners to the metal scene.
My question is that is there anyone of you ever went from Classical to Metal? Do you think any of the metal stereotypes are true? do you think metal as a form of art toxic?
I myself rather think that metal educates, much like classical.
