A Sub-Genre of Metal made popular during the 80's originally by bands such as Motorhead and Venom. Metallica then took the style and made it into a more popular and prominent style. Other bands through the Thrash ages are Overkill, Exodus, Testament, Megadeth, Sepultura, Vio-Lence, Dark Angel, Death Angel, Kreator and so forth.
Basically Thrash is a fast paced Metal style that usually includes lots of Palm Muting on the top E string and mega fast solo's.
"Did you see Overkill play last night"
"Yeah, they were Thrashy as fuck!"
Absu are an extremely influential North American Black Metal band, hailing from Texas. Their sound is characterised by extremely technical drumming, thrashy guitars and high pitched screaming occasionally breaking into bursts of ear splitting falsetto.
Their debut CD 'Barathrum: VITRIOL' established them as a band of extreme potential in the occult metal scene.
Their lastest release 'Tara' defined their sound having possibly the most brutal blastbeats ever seen in Metal.
Their drummer Proscriptor is a musical genius, with drumming skills to make people weep.
They sing about ancient mesopotamian and Sumerian as well as Ancient Celtic mythology and magic.
We are still awaiting their fifth release.
"Dude, did you hear that Absu song 'Pillars of Mercy'?"
"Yeah man, that guitar and drum solo in the first 30 seconds made me orgasm."
A genre of music with atleast 100 sub-genres, none of which fit the same definition. basically any type of rock that's heavier than rock, exept for some metal which isn't all that heavy but still called metal for some reason. Powermetal is called metal because it's not like rock.
metal guitar solos are sound the same. Death metal has to be the worst form of metal.
and progressive band these days is called metal even if they aren't heavy at all.
So to sum up, metal is any kind of music with electric guitars. Exept for acoustic metal.
See what metal has become? Too many sum-genres

created in the 80s, grindcore is a genre of fast/heavy music that has distorted thrashy guitars and a fast drum pattern known as the blastbeat, usually contains a variation of screaming and growling. in some cases it's too metal for punks, or too punk for metalheads.

In the thrashy Israeli streets, this is one of many Code-terms in order to get some Marijuana around, and other drugs as well. Since Marijuana is the most exstensive illegal drug there is, escpecially in Israel, this particular term is considered mostly into "Weed". The term itself asks for the "demand" part, and usually after you say 'direction' (or, "Kivun" in Hebrew), you must name the price. exmaples next will show the meaning:
Do you have a direction (kivun) in 50? (Can I purchase drugs in 50 NIS?)

A variety of punk rock originating in the US in the early '80s. It involves shouted vocals (as opposed to growled) with a fast, aggressive tempo and a guitar sound featuring quick chord changes. Minor Threat, Bad Brains, SSD, and the Circle Jerks are known for this style. By 1986, a new style of hardcore came out of the New York scene. The NYHC scene added mosh breakdowns to mix, but the music retained its fast aggressive nature. This spawned the youth crew scene, a positive straight edge scene featuring such bands as Youth of Today, Chain of Strength, and the Gorilla Biscuits. Judge is a notable band from this era that added some metal style to their riffs. In the 90s hardcore took many different direction, bands like Lifetime and Turning Point took the late '80s sound (particularly the melodic approach pioneered by the Gorilla Biscuits) and added a softer sung vocals and the lyrical approach of DC bands like the Rites of Spring and Dag Nasty. Other bands like Earth Crisis mixed hardcore with death metal growls and slow brutal guitars. Today many bands continue to play the early '80s fast, thrashy style as well as the so-called '88 or youth crew style, while still others have taken the sound of bands like Earth Crisis farther and mixed in more metal elements such as double bass drumming. Hardcore refers to all of these styles, though metalcore is best used to identify bands like Throwdown or Converge (who don't really sound anything alike but both mix metal and ha...more...
