The album that started it all for me was Power Slave by Iron Maiden, a friend of mine bought it because the cover looked cool, got it home, listened to the first song then phoned me. I then moved onto heavier stuff, first Slayer, then Bolt Thrower, Napalm Death and all the other bands that used to appear on Earache promos.
Later on I got more into the punk side of things, this was more a matter of actually going to gigs with friends and seeing bands I wouldn't have normally listened to. Through watching live stuff I got into Sick of it All, Madball, Conflict,The Exploited and Chaos UK.
Over time my love of extreme metal and punk sort of melded together into liking bands like From Ashes Rise, Tragedy, Warcollapse etc.
