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.

Heavy metal lyrics and performance styles are generally associated with masculinity and machismo. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: Iron Maiden
