What's in Ray's Head? Part 2

This week we return to drop the hammer on your heads with part 2 of What's in Ray's Head, the playlists. That's right, we pick the brain of a major metal head and pull from his list some of the best classic and current albums around. But first let's learn about Ray with our new bio feature. Every week we'll highlight one of our contributors from the past and present to tell us about their Metal history.

Ray Vakalis
When did you start listening to Heavy Metal?
I started listening to metal when i was around 14 or 15.

First Metal Album, CD or Cassette?
My first metal cassette was Megadeth, Rust In Peace. 

First show?
God i cant remember what my first show was. I have been to a lot. I guess going to 2pi, seeing bands like As The Sun Sets, Indifference, and Anoxia was the beginning of getting into under the radar metal bands.

Form your ultimate metal band with musicians living or deceased?
Hellhammer on drums, Jimi Hendrix on guitar, Cliff Burton on bass, Jon Lord on the hammond, Peter Steele on vocals.

The name of that ultimate metal band and genre?
The genre would be considered Heavy Psychedelic Black Doom!

Favorite Horror Movie?
The Killer Clowns From Outerspace.
Favorite Alcoholic Beverage?
How bout a nice cold Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
