Division (business)
A DIVISION of a business , sometimes called a BUSINESS SECTOR, is one of the parts into which a business, organization or company is divided. The divisions are distinct parts of that business. If these divisions are all part of the same company, then that company is legally responsible for all of the obligations and debts of the divisions. However, in a large organization, various parts of the business may be run by different subsidiaries , and a business division may include one or many subsidiaries. Each subsidiary is a separate legal entity owned by the primary business or by another subsidiary in the hierarchy. Often a division operates under a separate name and is the equivalent of a corporation or limited liability company obtaining a fictitious name or "doing business as " certificate and operating a business under that fictitious name. Companies often set up business units to operate in divisions prior to the legal formation of subsidiaries

Gold Record
MUSIC RECORDING SALES CERTIFICATION is a system of certifying that a music recording has shipped or sold a certain number of copies. The threshold quantity varies by type (such as album, single , music video ) and by nation or territory (see List of music recording certifications ). Almost all countries follow variations of the RIAA certification categories, which are named after precious materials (gold , platinum and diamond ). The number of sales or shipments required for these awards depends upon the population of the territory in which the recording is released. Typically, they are awarded only to international releases and are awarded individually for each country in which the album is sold. Different sales levels, some perhaps 10 times lower than others, may exist for different music media (for example: videos versus albums , singles, or downloads)

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 . 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, three of the genre's most famous pioneers, Led Zeppelin

Extreme Metal
EXTREME METAL is a loosely defined umbrella term for a number of related heavy metal music subgenres that have developed since the early 1980s. It has been defined as a "cluster of metal subgenres characterized by sonic, verbal and visual transgression". The term usually refers to a more abrasive, harsher, underground, non-commercialized style or sound associated with the speed metal , thrash metal , death metal , black metal and doom metal genres. With the exception of doom metal, all of these genres are characterized by fast tempos, attesting to their roots in hardcore punk , which has also fused with extreme metal in the forms of crossover thrash , crust punk , grindcore , sludge metal and metalcore . Though many extreme sub-styles are not very well known to mainstream music fans, extreme metal has influenced an array of musical performers inside and outside of heavy metal
