Post Stuff that hit you late...and hard.
Anything that didn't grab you at first, but really hammered you later?

I have to admit I wasn't huge on Stained Glass Sky/Sympathetic Resonance when I first heard it. Now, I can't stop spinning it. Thank God for Arch's resurrection.

Loving this. :shred:

Virtual XI. Despite it's flaws it's still incredibly enjoyable.

Summoning- LUGTURD AND THAT SHITTY CYMBAL put me off. Stronghold fucked me over and I've been all in ever since.

"Stained Glass Sky" blew me away when I first heard it ... I still think that by far it is the best track on that disc.

I'll never understand why it took me so long to hear Celtic Frost.

Mercyful Fate

They always were one of the best bands in the world, I just never got them. Now they are a personal favorite.

Opeth - The Drapery Falls

First song I heard from Opeth and I didn't even like it. Now there one of my favorite bands.

For sure. They're a hard band to "get" but once you do, they're just amazing.

My introduction was KD, and it was also a slow grower. First 2 albums I bought (other than hard rock/hair metal) were RTL and Abigail. Enjoyed RTL right out of the gate, but found Abigail beyond absurd.

I got Dimension Hatross when it was released. Took a while to sink in. But it eventually came one of my favorite metal albums.

I was late to the party on Slayer's essential albums.
Rotting Christ I jumped in at Khronos and was hooked.
I didn't buy what Immolation was doing when I first heard Closer To a World Below. Now I appreciate and love their take on death metal. Totally unique.

I didn't get really into Metallica until Justice or Slayer until Seasons. And Powertrip was probably when I began to get really serious about Monster Magnet.

That's about all I got for now.

I couldn't get into Miles Davis when I first heard his music, but I was still in my teens at the time. It took several years before I could get my brain around it, but eventually it clicked. My life was never the same after that.

Same sort of thing with Ornette Coleman, and later McCoy Tyner, whose music was impenetrable for me when I first heard it. 20 years later it all made perfect sense.

Opeth took a while due to Mike's questionable arrangements. Now I kind of take him on his own terms.

Dream Theater.
I liked most of "Images" but was turned off by "Awake" upon its release….just did nothing for me, and coupled with LaBrie's (then) vocals, I ignored them for years. Then I heard some snippets of "Six Degrees" many years later and was really intrigued. Since then, I've become a fan!

I am way late to the Slough Feg party and I have to say I'm sorry I didn't get with it sooner.

I also think I'm starting to come around a little to Ozzy-era Sabbath. Maybe.

It damn well might be the best song that Arch and Matheos have ever written. The song absolutely kills tits.
