Heavy metal

Heavy metal (often referred to simply as metal) is a genre of rock music that developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, largely in the United Kingdom and the United States. With roots in blues-rock and psychedelic rock, the bands that created heavy metal developed a thick, massive sound, characterized by highly amplified distortion, extended guitar solos, emphatic beats, and overall loudness. Heavy metal lyrics and performance styles are generally associated with masculinity and machismo. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: Judas Priest

    Only people who have heard very few metal bands hate the genre.

    Однако иногда под хеви-металом понимают метал вообще (это особенно распространено на Западе). А вот это бесит. Как и называть весь рок рок-н-роллом. Неправильно епт.

    Early Black Sabbath is the only heavy metal worth listening to.
