It was in late December of 2000... my cousin who was in California used to send me some tapes of the music he thinks I would like.... he sends me music every year in Christmas...
So fortunately he had sent me the blessed Hybrid theory tape at that time. And when I got it, I played it after a week or something. And I immediately like "Papercut".. and so on & on. I must have played that tape for like 70-80 times in between those 1-2 weeks..
It was their fabulous battle catalysis I loved and immediately became their fan..
