A portmanteau of "metaphor" and "metal", referring to the use of heavy metal songs or lyrics as a representation of less tangible (or audible) ideas.
"My girlfriend getting way too clingy. I don't know what to do anymore."
"Four words for you: Run To The Hills."
"Iron Maiden! Nice metalphor, sir. So ... should I break up with her over text or email?"
