Best thing happened to music besides grunge.
Early Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Black Sabbath, etc...
A seriously awesome style of music which is much more difficult (at least for guitar) than normal rock. But I do not see anyone mentioning the band that I think owns heavy metal, Tool. I am a professional violist and I play guitar, and musically, heavy metal is very similar to classical, it takes skill to play and write.
Tool's music is 100 times what any Blink 182 or Simple Plan guitarist can play. And musically speaking, it is, well actual music.
Heavy Metal Music is a bunch of retards attempting to make noise and call it music. They think that screaming into a microphone and playing guitars and drums at the same time passes off as music, obviously they are wrong.
Listeners of heavy metal are usually loners who stick to their own bunch of people and hate everything other people like. People who listen to Heavy Metal are extremely critical and like to criticize everything because they do not like it.
Furthermore, people who listen to Heavy Metal music hate mainstream music because unfortunately their music can't make it to mainstream as it is not music but just random, retarded sounds and screams which have no meaning.
Most Heavy Metal is based on Satan and self harm. They also like to sing about the government and how it is corrupt, but the bands who sing about this do not realise that it is the same government that made them rich.
Heavy Metal is pure evil and should not be regarded as music.
Music is a sound perceived as pleasingly harmonious, Heavy Metal however, is not pleasing nor harmonious, it is the complete opposite.
Normal Person: Err....
Normal Person: Are you trying to be a lion again?
Emo: No i'm singing Heavy Metal.
Normal Person: Oh..ok....i'm just going to leave now
Heavy Metal is by far a better form of music than anything going today. Although some of today's "nu metal" bands have a bit of talent, none compare to metal gods of years past such as Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Slayer, Pantera, Metallica (as in pre 1990's Selloutica), and even Alice in Chains on Facelift. This was angry music with a purpose, not just angry for the sake of selling records.
If you want an example of good heavy metal music, listen to some Iron Maiden or Motorhead, fuck this Korn and Slipknot crybaby shit.
One of the most talented genres out there today. The guitars are usually blindingly fast and the drummer uses the double bass
or other awesome sounding beats all the time. The vocalist usually sings in a low voice, a lot of times consisting og growling and shrieks. The bass player..... he's just there. Good bands include Chimaira
, Lamb of God
, In Flames
, 100 Demons
, Fear Factory
, God Forbid
My friend lost 73% of his hearing and 3 fingers at a heavy metal concert
1. Probably the best genre of music. Created by bands like Led Zepplin and Deep Purple, then revloutionized by 80's bands like Iron Maiden and METALLICA, and is still kept alive today by bands like Tool and Cradle of Filth. Basically, its pure anger turned into music.
2. A animated, adult-oriented film (u.s.) based on a french, Adult oriented Comic. It has gained a large cult following and, even spawned a crappy sequal, Heavy Metal 2000
1. Metallica is god.
2. Heavy metal is one of the only rated R american animated films ever.
Has pretty much dominated the rock scene for the past 25 or so years.
Music has pretty much sucked for about the past 25 years.
