Top 10 Best Things To Hear In a Metal SongMetal_Treasure
The Top Ten
I do like fast riffs in Thrash Metal the most but Groove Metal and Symphonic Metal are close contenders for me. - CaptainMowzker
Fast riffs rule! - PhoenixAura81
I love the most Thrash Metal Riffs. Also great for headbanging. - Metal_Treasure
I love this sound. Sweep picking is probably the hardest guitar technique to master but the effort pays off. It sounds awesome to me. - Metal_Treasure
The sound of fretless bass is different - it's softer and more melodic. Because of that, you might be surprised that it's used mainly in death metal - technical and progressive death metal, in particular (Obscura, Ne Obliviscaris).
Again, it's much harder to play without frets (moreover, very fast). And because of that, it isn't a surprise it's used mostly in technical and progressive death metal, where the most metal talent is concentrated currently.
I love the distinctive sounds the fretless bass makes - those “bwoww” and "muwahh" sounds. - Metal_Treasure
Dueling Solos are usually between 2 guitars, or between guitar and keyboards (the latter found mostly in Children Of Bodom, Dream Theater, Yngwie, and Deep Purple - where it started in metal).
And a very rare version - between guitar and violin, wow! (Ne Obliviscaris).

PS. The image depicts Children Of Bodom playing dueling solos - Janne Wirman (keyboards) and Alexi Laiho (guitar). - Metal_Treasure
I prefer its sound over snare drum - Metal_Treasure
Bridge is an optional element of a song but it makes the song more interesting because the music of the bridge appears only once in a song and it's pretty different from the music in the rest of the song.

As heard in Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Primal Fear, Helloween (not all bands with 2 guitarists are with twin lead guitars - for example, Metallica aren't). Also, twin guitars aren't a double-neck guitar.
Twin (Duo) Lead Guitars basically means twin harmony guitar arrangements.

PS. On the picture are Judas Priest guitarists - Metal_Treasure
One of my favorites is the one to Gojira's song, The Way of All Flesh. - cjWriter1997
Judas Priest - Painkiller. - Userguy44
+ Stargazer intro. - Metal_Treasure
They're simple, hard hitting and absolutely fun. - cjWriter1997
Whammy bars are awesome. - Userguy44
Whammy Bar, aka vibrato bar or tremolo bar, is used to create sick sound effects, such as, bomb drop/dive, dirt bike (car/motorbike engine roar), police siren, horse whinny, alien talk, elephant, and more).

Ex. - the end of Painkiller by Judas Priest (18-19 seconds). - Metal_Treasure
They're rare so I appreciate them whenever I hear one - cjWriter1997
YES! I definitely love hearing them! - Metal_Treasure
It's last on my original remix because most of the metal fans don't like extreme metal (but I love deep death growls) - Metal_Treasure
I personally am a fan of the sludgy dirty guitar tones found in many death metal and grindcore songs - cjWriter1997
To satisfy my proggy needs - cjWriter1997
