Things You Should Know About Heavy MetalMetalthomas I know that most of us know about it. But still, many people out there just don't know it.
The Top Ten
I know I have said this on my list "Worst assumption about music". But still, there are too many people out there who don't know it (It's like they come from the past or something). - Metalthomas
The only metal genre that is satanic is black metal. (Not all bands though). But anyway, Heavy Metal isn't Black Metal. So not really to worry. - zxm
Do you know how long it takes a band to master an entire metal song? Metal is NOT easy. It requires PRECISION, SPEED and TEAMWORK. - Metalthomas
This is for those who say "Metal is just noise" out there
EVERY fret on the guitar is a musical note. So overall, metal is made up of notes (and chords too). It's NOT just noise. - Metalthomas
I agree with Metalthomas' comment that he said about the techniques in solos. However these techniques are also available in genres like hard rock, blues, prog rock etc. But as for heavy metal, these are even better. - zxm
Doing solos is not just pressing a bunch of notes.
For those who say "metal is talentless", do you know anything about "palm muting", "sliding", "bending", "sweeping picking", "harmonics", etc?
Guitar solos are extremely hard. If you don't know anything about those, DON'T criticize those. - Metalthomas
It's not radio-friendly doesn't mean it's not popular. - Metalthomas
-Excellent singing voices
-Awesome guitar riffs
-Headbanging guitar solos
See if you can list more. - Metalthomas
Soft rock, punk, hard rock, metal, rock n' roll. They are some of the most important genres that define "Rock music". - Metalthomas
It's basically the same thing.
Yes, its kinda true. Sometimes some people think it as a same. But heavy metal (also known as traditional heavy metal) is a sub-genre of metal. But while many people call metal as heavy metal so it has become like heavy metal is another name of metal.
Prominent heavy metal bands - Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Metallica (some songs), Deep Purple (some songs), Black Sabbath. Dio etc. All of them are called metal bands too.
But some other metal bands like Slayer, Nightwish, Mayhem etc bands are metal. But not heavy metal.
But calling heavy metal won't be wrong though. Like some musicians call themselves rock n roll. They take rock and rock n roll as same. But usually heavy metal is the first/oldest/standard form of metal. - zxm
One word: Metallica - Metalthomas
And Pallbearer, Cannibal Corpse, Ahab, Deicide, Abominable Putridity, etc. - Metalhead1997
Metal or heavy metal isn't just about loudness. Check some tapping heavy metal guitar solos. - zxm
I am not saying who created heavy metal and who haven't. I am just saying that these bands are credited to be the first heavy metal bands. While from what I heard most American critics credited Led Zeppelin and most English critics credited Black Sabbath. - zxm
