Brand new forum, brand new avatar. Hoping to see some familiar faces around here (as I figure out this new forum software).
I don’t think I ever talked about myself back on MH, so here we go. I first got into vk hot off of a 100% metalhead phase in the late 2000s. I was looking through my last.fm recommendations and came across Mucc, DEG, and Malice Mizer, and fell down the rabbit hole from there. My first “community” was the last.fm degbox, then I lurked Batsu/Fukkatsu for a while, before finally joining MH. I never posted too frequently, but it’s one of my favorite corners of the internet. There just isn’t another community around that’s as knowledgeable, yet doesn’t take itself too seriously.
I don’t listen to anywhere near as much vk these days as I used to, but I still consider it a core part of my taste in music and I’m always open to new recommendations.
