A sub-genre of rock music. Notorious for being heavy (hence the name, heavy metal), dark, and often deep pitched. The bass and drums are often played in sync while the guitar plays the main rhythm with riffs, licks, and chords. Stereotypic metal is often associated with darkness, destruction, pain, and Satanism. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the music mommy and daddy warned you not to listen to.
The father of metal, Ozzy Osbourne, bit the head off of a bat during the song "Bark At The Moon". THAT is metal.
