Heavy Metal oder auch ganz einfach Metal ist Anfang der 1970er Jahre in Großbritannien entstanden. Über die Jahrzehnte hinweg entwickelten sich einige Subsgrene wie etwa Black-, Death- oder Power Metal.

Es gibt Momente im Leben, in denen ein einzelner Rocksong nicht genug ist und deine Ohren nach etwas stärkerem und aggressiverem dürsten. Die Schlagzeuge und Gitarrenriffs sind nicht genug, um das Biest, das du in dir trägst, zu beruhigen; Du bist nur einen Schritt davon entfernt in Wut zu explodieren, also brauchst du die perfekte Playlist.

Metal bietet dem Hörer ein enormes Spektrum an musikalischen Techniken von extrem langsamen bis zu rasant schnellen Rhythmen an. Heavy Metal gehört zu den populärsten Genre auf der ganzen Welt und seine dunklen Ideologien spielen weiterhin eine fundamentale Rolle. Metal bietet aber auch Songs die Gesellschaftskritik üben oder sich mit Religionen beschäftigen. Auch Fantasy, Hassorgien, Melancholie und romantische Themen sind Bestandteil von Heavy Metal. Am Ende kann die Musik und Inspiration aus jeder Richtung und Quelle kommen.
