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
