Our story is started from midle 90s when I was born. My name is Yurii and I am from Ukraine. As regular 90s kid in Ukraine I was obsessed with western culture: 80s, 90s and y2k movies, cartoons and of course music. John Rembo, Terminator, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Looney Tunes and another characters was my foreign friends that days.
In 2000 in Ukraine people still used VHS and compact cassette tapes, they shared it with each other and it was kinda Ukrainian version of that era Netflix. I still remember when I bought my first Rammstein cassette tape when I was 6 years old. It was big money for small ukraninan kid but I was a true fan already. First time I heard Rammstein at my cousin's apartment, than he introduced to me other bands like Nightwish, Blind Guardian, Iron Maiden, Metallica and others.
Years passed and I am already a teenager. Heavy metal was already to easy for me so I started to listen black and death metal bands and visiting local music festivals. By the way this was the time when I found out what thrift shops are.
