SparkPeople Metalheads Team Messageboard Helllooo oooo.... I don't know about everyone else, but I am ready to get rid of this weight and live my life to it's full potential. Tired of going to shows, bars, festivals and not feeling or looking my absolute best. <BR> <BR> Jennifer Wed, 10 Sep 2014 17:44:38 EST metalheads? just wondering... Mon, 21 Apr 2014 07:36:32 EST Health and fitness.. brought us all together Saxon reference anybody? <BR> <BR> Anyways I was totally hoping to find a SparkTeam like this ;) Thu, 22 Nov 2012 18:55:03 EST Top 10 Favorite Bands In alphabetical order since I can't pick favorites! <BR> <BR> 1.Blind Guardian <BR> 2.Diabulus in Musica <BR> 3.Epica <BR> 4.In Flames (old) <BR> 5.Iron Maiden <BR> 6.Kamelot <BR> 7.Megadeth <BR> 8.Nightwish/Tarja's solo stuff <BR> 9.Sonata Arctica <BR> 10.Tristania (old) Wed, 26 Sep 2012 14:18:02 EST Freakishly Awesome Health Tips Let's help out our fellow metalhead friends by sharing our health tips, whether they're food- or fitness-related. Or metal-related. <BR> <BR> For example, playing on a basketball team for a couple years really helped me out in the mosh pit. Whenever you'd have some jerk trying to take your spot up front, or you have some idiot trying to slam into you, I'd take my basketball stance and blissfully continue to enjoy the concert. <BR> <BR> Oh, and I recently read that if you're a carb-craver, ... Mon, 14 May 2012 15:56:54 EST Today's Exercise Pretty self-explanatory. Which exercises did you pound out today? <BR> <BR> So far, I jogged/walked on the treadmill for 55 minutes. Mon, 14 May 2012 15:48:45 EST Upcoming Concerts Hey team, thought I'd start a thread on the upcoming concerts near you, or which concerts you've recently attended. <BR> <BR> Anyone pumped for Lamb of God, Gojira, and Dethklok coming up this summer? Oh man, I missed Gojira last time they were in town because I had a sitar recital that night. That won't happen again. <BR> <BR> And I just moved back from Sweden not too long ago and was so privileged to finally see my favourite band, Katatonia. It was their 20th anniversary show and they pl... Mon, 14 May 2012 15:45:39 EST Sparkpeopleklok SO RELIEVED this team is here. POST MORE!!!!!!! <BR> <BR> I am Olivia. I like metal. Doom and death primarily. Dethklok gets a category of their own, because Brendon Small is a GENIUS, and I'm super psyched for the release of Galaktikon at the end of this month. <BR> <BR> I play the bass with a bunch of dudes who try to sound like Weezer, but I've been getting them to play nothing but doom lately. Gods be praised. Tue, 10 Apr 2012 16:49:32 EST let's talk about death I kind of straddle the line between metal and punk. I'm into doom, sludge, black metal (raw/weird, synths drive me up a wall). Lots of grind and crust as well. I dunno. I play drums in a crusty doom band here in Minneapolis. Hoping to get something else started soon. <BR> <BR> So what does everybody think of the remaster of Death's "Human"? Tue, 16 Aug 2011 08:58:41 EST On and Off and On and Off! I keep falling off the wagon! It's easy to do, unfortunately, especially with a new job, lack of necessary meds due to lack of insurance, the heat wave of late, and school. Still, I've got to get back on! Have any of you been having trouble with staying on the wagon lately? What do you think we should do to help us stay on? Mon, 8 Aug 2011 09:25:02 EST No Life Till Metal! Hello! First I searched "Metallica" to see if there was a spark team for Metallica fans, but a Metal spark team is just as good :-) <BR> <BR> I'm Stephanie...Glad to be here! Wed, 13 Jul 2011 17:10:43 EST HI.... I'm really terrible at these intro things, but here goes... <BR> <BR> My name is Sarah, I live in Alabama where metal is considered a sin. I'm just re-beginning my journey to a healthier me, and it's cool that I can find some people I have things in common with. <BR> <BR> So... Hi. ;) Wed, 15 Jun 2011 17:33:48 EST hello everyone, so now what? haha Hi my name is Rick, I am from Toronto. I am NEW here so be gentle with me : ) I'd like to talk to like-minded people who I have things in common with, get in shape, and maybe go for some bike rides (for those local to me). Drop me a line anytime. Cheers, love and rocknroll. Tue, 7 Jun 2011 15:26:01 EST METAL Will Never Die! So Neither Will We!

Healthy cooking, vegan style - just memorize the lyrics and you're good to go - plus this is amazingly funny. I'm not a promoter of the vegan diet, but there are plenty of healthy things vegans eat! We all should eat more plants as it is. Tue, 17 May 2011 06:25:25 EST Funny Stuff!!! (Well, I think it is...) So unless you have been living under a rock, you've probably all heard about the very public and ongoing meltdown of Charlie Sheen. I'm not really a Sheen fan, but I am a fan of the band Chimaira. What do those two things have to do with each other? Well, Chimaira is from Cleveland, OH, and proudly rep their hometown...and Charlie Sheen starred in the movie "Major League" back in the day, playing a fictional pitcher for the Cleveland Indians baseball team whose knickname was "Wild Thing." And... Sun, 6 Mar 2011 23:24:19 EST hey I'm Amanda hey as I said my names Amanda and I'm a metal head. I just got married 9 months ago and I have about 50 pounds to lose. I'm having a really hard time losing weight. I was really skinny in high school and able to wear whatever I want and now I feel like I'm stuck wearing "mom clothes" because I'm over weight. Basically I miss being a goth kid any body wanna chat or needs someone to talk to about weight loss or music let me know. Sun, 27 Feb 2011 14:56:07 EST Another Metalhead Just another Metalhead who grew up in the 80's saying Hi :) Thu, 10 Feb 2011 06:49:59 EST Gary Moore, RIP :-( So last night I was reading MetalSucks, one of my favorite heavy metal blogs (check them out if you haven't, BTW) and learned that Gary Moore had passed away. For those who might not know, he was the guitarist in Thin Lizzy (started when he was just 16!) and he had a pretty decent solo career as well. He was a great guitarist, with some serious blues influence in his playing. I think he even considered himself more of a blues than a rock player. I'm a child of the eighties and Thin Lizzy was ... Tue, 8 Feb 2011 09:28:11 EST Awesome!!! Soooooo glad to find a place where metal fans can hang out on this site! So to introduce myself...I am a 41-year-old woman with a rather boring job, a rather boring (but sweet!) husband and a rather boring life...but I am a metalhead to the core and have been since I was 13 years old!!! I'm a child of the 80s and cut my teeth on Metallica, Maiden, Queesryche and a lot of hair bands, but as I grew older my tastes have evolved to include a lot of other genres like metalcore (Shadows Fall, Kills... Sun, 30 Jan 2011 16:54:01 EST Watain, How Amazing you Are! <link> </link> <BR> <BR> This song, The Serpent's Chalice, is one of my favorites from Watain. The energy behind it is steady and invigorating. It's better than coffee as a morning wake-up call. ;) Sun, 9 Jan 2011 10:48:32 EST Simple Intro I'm Breanne. <BR> 27 years fermented. <BR> Born and raised in Cheyenne, WY. <BR> Happily married to my gnarly other half. <BR> Mother of 3 boys. <BR> Metalhead to my core.

Tue, 9 Nov 2010 19:12:42 EST Horrifid metal drummer Great to see this forum. My biggest motivator was a pic sent to me from recent tour. I was bigger than my drum set!

Hello! <BR> <BR> I just joined this site several days ago and was surprised - like most of you - to find a community like this on a dieting/fitness site of all places! <BR> <BR> Anyway, I thought I'd introduce myself before I start lurking around. I'm a short, "average" 23-year-old metalhead. I wish there was a death metal version of the saying "thrash 'til death" because I enjoy it all - from melodeath to tech death to deathgrind. That said, some of my favorite bands include Opeth, Soilwo... Wed, 1 Sep 2010 01:12:55 EST Hey,new here..
