A type of music characterized by it's cacophonous wall of sound and accelerated tempo which is achieved through distorted electric guitars playing fast-paced riffs, with the driving drumbeat often utilizing hypersonic double bass rhythms and emphasizing the continuous pumping action, the bass guitar is often playing similar to the guitar, but more with the drums, so as to add to the overall heavyness and depth. It can manifest in many different forms and the spectrum of intensity is usually quite varied. From slow and heavy melodic grooves, to complex and precise blinding rhythms, odd time changes, and sheer brutality.. metal comes in many shapes and sizes. One common trait of metal is to have vocals dealing with dark subject matter, often sung with anger, aggression, and conviction in the form of screaming. Melodic smooth vocals are also accepted. Solos are an integral part of metal music, as the icing on the cake to complement the heavy intensity of the songs and add more depth and individuality. Real metal has a solo in every song, usually scales and arpeggios played with some changes often in 8th, 16th, or 32nd notes..if only a few quick licks. Metal is progressive and dynamic, and usually provokes feelings that are therapeutic to the listener. Metal is rock music that has evolved.

Metal head - Group of musical listeners that are often described as drunkards, partiers, and fighters, but this is a bit of a stereotype. Metal heads often listen to classic rock along with blues rock, classical, and opera based music, since those 2 genres are the root of what rock music could be considered today and the dawn of all music. Metal heads tend to have a powerful dislike towards the close-minded and mainstream. The majority tend to be very liberal and anti-conservative, but not all of course. Metal lyrics are often quite political and have more meaning than what people say. Metal music is very often stereotyped as “ satanic devil related material” . This is the worst stereotype of them all and the reason many don’t give metal a chance. Metal lyrics also deal with independence, pride, and free will. The metal genre has more sub-genres that any other musical genre existing today. These genres are often known as classic metal, death metal, black metal, grind core, thrash metal, symphonic metal, opera metal, folk metal, Viking metal, industrial metal, progressive metal, power metal, etc etc. All are tied together in the same branch and all kick ass if I do say so myself. Way back when there was a rivalry between punks, metal heads, and skinheads. This rivalry has long since dwindled out and people have matured today ( for the most part ) . There is no particular attire, metal heads tend to dress however they damn well please and this is great. But many people believe the attire to be faded blue jeans with black band tee-shirts. Long and/or wavy type hair style usually passing the eyes. Metal heads don’t give a shit about what’s trendy or what other people wear and allow people to dress and express themselves as they please without bitching about it like many “ new generation punk rockers” do today.
I have blabed on long enough on what I believe is the deffiniton of “ metal head” .
Old-school punk kicks ass, but what’s all this emo/screamo/pop-punk shit. * Sigh * Kids these days.
used to defeat scissors in a game
aha! my rock beat your scissors!
Contrary to about 400 of the definitions already listed here, Heavy Metal has nothing to do with Marilyn Manson. Heavy Metal is a genre of music inspired by American Blues music, in which people began to exploit the characteristics of the electric guitar to create louder, more discordant sounds. Heavy Metal is characterized by fast tempo, agressive rythm, and grandoise lyrics, often involving such themes as drug abuse, death, or political issues.
Megadeth, Metallica, Judas Priest = Metal
Marilyn manson, Linkin Park, rapcore music = Not Metal
We must save music

To mosh: A way of expressing yourself at an mental rock/punk concert. Almost always done in a "pit" with extremely cool people who you don't even know but they'll look out for you! You get pushed around, shoved, you fall on your ass but it's all in the spirit and you have a f*ckin great time!!!
A concert isn't a concert without getting in a pit!!!
A form of music that developed in the mid 1980's from thrash. Possessed recorded a song entitled "Death Metal" in 1984, which would appear on their debut album Seven Churches in 1985. Other bands such as Aggression, Death, Necrophagia, Nun Slaughter, Slaughter Lord and even Slayer contributed to the movement. What defined death metal was the fact that it was basically an exaggerated form of thrash--everything from the vocals (which transformed into a mix of growling, grunting and rasping) to the drumming was made harsher and heavier than before. The music itself became somewhat anti-rhythmic, and in some cases experimental (as seen with Darkthrone's Goatlord album, or the modern technicality of Necrophagist). The first bands to really modernize the movement included Autopsy, Cannibal Corpse, the virtually unkown Necrovore, Morbid Angel, Obituary, and Ripping Corpse, among others. Death metal could range from the blood and gore horror imagery of Cannibal Corpse, to the satanic overtones of Deicide, to the political statements carried by Dying Fetus. Some criticize death metal as they feel the musicians do nothing but randomly band their instruments. Nothing could be further from the truth--listen to Morbid Angel's album Covenant, for instance, or Cannibal Corpse's Gore Obsessed, to get a better perspective on the scene.
Older Sepultura is a mix of death metal and thrash metal, commonly referred to as death thrash.
When a girl wants to pleasure you by licking, sucking your penis. Often times, teens dont know how to do this, so they practice a lot. They often times forget to be moving her hand up and down on the part of the penis her mouth cant reach, which will help the ejactulation process. Some girls enjoy, some dont, luckily, my girl doesnt mind it at all.
Advice to all guys: while getting head, make sure to stay very "focused" and into it, and think about how fucking awesome it is while its happening, and just how good it feels, it will make it even better, and during the orgasm, enjoy! It is the best, but, you might not feel the best right after, like, you will feel a little "unhorny", but thats normal. Make sure to love your girl, because she definately cares enough to do this to you. My advice: go down on her too, if she wants it.
Holy shit man, I got head last night, and I am reliving it over and over.
