Heavy metal bands – Heavy metal genre

Heavy metal is a genre of rock music developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, largely in the United Kingdom and the United States. Heavy metal is traditionally characterized by loud distorted guitars, emphatic rhythms, dense bass-and-drum sound, and vigorous vocals. The rhythm in metal songs is emphatic, with deliberate stresses. The wide array of sonic effects available to metal drummers enables the rhythmic pattern to take on a complexity within its elemental drive and insistency. In many heavy metal songs, the main groove is characterized by short, two-note or three-note rhythmic figures—generally made up of 8th or 16th notes.

The term heavy metal was popularized in the Steppenwolf hit “Born to be wild” which includes the phrase “heavy metal thunder”. The new genre was distind from rock music not only musically but in its lyrical themes. Throughout the 1970s groups such as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, and Judas Priest had much lucrative success as heavy metal bands.

In the 1980s and into the 1990s new heavy metal bands came along, and new technologies made the heavy metal sound still darker, fiercer, more abrasive. Iron Maiden produced songs that were often broodingly introspective as well as songs based on myths and legends. Metallica and Megadeth developed a startlingly dark and energetic sound, and they used it to convey gloomy lyrical themes of religious and political hypocrisy, alienation, and existential emptiness.
