    Speed Metal

    Speed Metal seems to have a lose meaning bands like Motorhead and Juds Priest are sometimes called Speed Metal then so are alot of Thrash band.
    What do you guys think?

  • Speed metal to me is just fast heavy metal. A lot of the bands overlap with power metal or thrash or both. Examples include Running Wild, Vectom, Abattoir, Iron Angel (Hellish Crossfire), Agent Steel etc. I would consider Priest's Painkiller to be primarily speed metal to.

    I don't consider stuff like Dragonforce to be speed metal in the classic sense.

    Thrash Til Death!

    Speed metal is imo 80ies metal which is rooted in heavy and thrash metal, with a rather melodic but fast riffing and melodic vocals, such as Judas Priest's Painkiller or Abbatoir's The Only Safe Place.

    That's why I would also not consider Dragonforce being a speed metal band, I would rather call it new/ modern power metal.

    I've got the same opinion like Vision1984 and RockBerlin ;-)

    Some more Power Metal Influenced stuff like helloweens first album or the first three albums of blind guardian is speed metal too.

  • I agree, and Living Death is a nice example.

    Shallow are words from those who starve, for a dream not their own to slash and scar
  • Exciter is the purest Speed metal band. There is also Beehler. I also consider bands like Agent Steel and Enforcer Melodic Speed Metal.
    But in most cases Speed metal is really underground

  • I actually happen to have a group about this :D

    Its pretty small for now but this group will be for ppl who want to discover Speed metal bands
