new to community

Hi all...just wanted to say that I'm new to the community. I don't know why I haven't joined earlier. I just didn't think about there being a hardcore christian community and was looking at all the people who'd listed "Demon Hunter" as one of their hobbies.

I'm working on my MA in Christian Studies at the University of Mobile (Alabama) and have been listening to the harder stuff in Christian music since I was like 8 and bought my first Whitecross album (yes, i'm that old!) I bought Mortification's "Scrolls of the Megalloth" on tape when I was 14 (!!) so I'm pretty much old school (seeing the 90s as the heyday for Christian hard music). I like some new school stuff (Demon Hunter, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster(saw them in concert this past monday!), Flyleaf, etc.) but a lot of the stuff out there is so generic (imho) and it seems it was just put out to make a buck.
I have pretty eclectic tastes, ranging from emo style a la Pedro the Lion to hardcore like Six Feet Deep and Spoken to the growling death metal style of Mortification, Lament, Ethereal Scourge, etc.
