This group is all about meeting fellow metal heads/rockers and is for anyone from the metalheads who can list iron maiden's discography reverse alphabetically, to people who have just discovered (or want to discover) the genre.
If you are looking to discover the genre, no-one can really give you a good starting point. The music itself is constantly getting pushed to new extremes and as a result, there are multiple sub categories.
My recommendation would be to hit Last fm and click "metal radio" and see what you like and take it from there.

There are monthly meetups where we usually go to a pub, and a club after. Plus theres been a lot of success in meeting up for gigs. Recently we've done Alice in Chains, Judas Priest and the Unholy Alliance to name a few.
There's gig resources aplenty here. You can
for a general list of gigs in London, or, if you want more info, look on our boards or read on.
For starters, there are a
of venues in London. Too many pubs to mention, along with the 02 arena, wembley, the electric ballroom, shepherds bushs empire, islington and brixton academy, relentless garage, HMV forum... and then there´s the countless pubs hosting everything from underground thrash to tribute bands. If you look on our calendar to the right I'll be updating any gigs I hear about. Theres also information on our forum about venues and where to check listings.
I'm always looking for new ideas or directions to take the group in. So please contact me if you have any suggestions.
