an awesome style of music far better than rock and rock & roll with amazing bands like metallica slayer anthrax and so on, very much like hard rock but with more ass-kicking solos
hahaha, this music is better than the shit some of these complainers listen to

Fast, heavy guitar riffs, relatively easy bass riffs, double-pedal drumming, insane guitar solos (the good ones are in the right key), usually non-talented vocalists that put on a show to make up for it. Started with Sabbath, which was close to classic rock, then brought to life by Metallica. Since then it has broken into many types, such as thrash (speed), nu-metal, death-metal, black metal, and it pretty much gets worse as the list goes on. Overall not a bad type of music, but lets face it thrash metal died at the end of the 80s.
Steve: Heavy metal kicks ass because of insanely loud guitar riffs and headache inducing drum beats!!

Jimbo: That's why it sucks too.

The music that everyone secretly loves, but most are too afraid to admit it.

Crazy, kickass guitars, insane drumming, and very diverse vocals, from clear singing to hellish growling.
Pure anger turned into pure extasy.

A type of powerful rock music that is split into three types:

The bad. The US screaming crap that everyone judges it on. Idiot posers shouting and attacking their guitars. Sadly this rubbish is popular and gives eveyone a bad opinion of the genre. It sells itself on retarded image. eg Slipknot and System of a Down

The good stuff. Characterised by the best and most original lyrics in music, amazing guitar playing, some incredibly beautiful singing Tarja Turunen from Nightwish and some fo the most emotional songs ever Maiden's Paschendale. It is sold by the talent of all the members of the band most music is all about the singing.

The ugly. Weird stuff that isn't for everybody. Often with strange growling vocals not shouting. Eg Finntroll and the better songs of Cradle Of Filth
Person: Metal si all screaming and bad guitar playing
Me: *Plays Nightwish's Ghost Love Score*
Person: OMG that was so beautiful, my media brainwashed mind is now cleansed
