Heavy Metal Music
HEAVY METAL (or simply 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 . With roots in blues rock and psychedelic /acid rock , the bands that created heavy metal developed a thick, massive sound, characterized by highly amplified distortion , extended guitar solos , emphatic beats, and overall loudness. Heavy metal lyrics and performance styles are sometimes associated with aggression and machismo . In 1968, the first heavy metal bands such as Led Zeppelin , Black Sabbath and Deep Purple attracted large audiences, though they were often derided by critics. During the mid-1970s, Judas Priest helped spur the genre's evolution by discarding much of its blues influence; Motörhead introduced a punk rock sensibility and an increasing emphasis on speed

Progressive Metal
PROGRESSIVE METAL (sometimes known as PROG METAL or TECHNICAL METAL) is a fusion genre melding heavy metal and progressive rock which combines the loud "aggression" and amplified guitar -driven sound of the former with the more experimental, cerebral or "pseudo-classical" compositions of the latter. Whilst the genre emerged towards the late-1980s, it was not until the 1990s that progressive metal achieved commercial success. Dream Theater , Symphony X , Shadow Gallery , Angra , Enchant , Queensrÿche and Fates Warning are a few examples of progressive metal bands who achieved commercial success; additionally, many other thrash and death metal bands started to incorporate elements of progressive music in their work

Metalcore
METALCORE is a broad fusion genre of extreme metal and hardcore punk . The word is a portmanteau of the names of the two genres. Among other genres blending metal and hardcore, such as crust punk and grindcore , metalcore is noted for its use of breakdowns , which are slow, intense passages that are conducive to moshing . Pioneering metalcore bands—such as Integrity , Earth Crisis and Converge , all of which had formed by 1990—are described as leaning more toward hardcore, with their style sometimes being called METALLIC HARDCORE, whereas later bands—such as Killswitch Engage , All That Remains , As I Lay Dying , Bullet for My Valentine , and Parkway Drive —are described as leaning more towards metal
