I'm not a big metal fan. I want to be...I want to look like a metal head...but then be ironic and listen to opera.
I do listen to some metal though. Currently I'm listening to the band Meshuggah....very hardcore stuff.
I felt a bit angry with...a plethora of things this morning, as so I put on some Rage Against the Machine, started mimicking the drum beats, and it made me feel slightly better :)

Bethlehem's "Tagebuch Einer Totgeburt" is such a beautiful song, I really want to kill myself and slowly fade into death with this song playing.

I find that black metal can be quite theraputic. Check out Obtained Enslavement. It's a real diamond in the rough.

I've been a huge metal head since I was a child. I started out with the basics, such as Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, but over the years, my tastes have expanded into almost every subgenre and sub-subgenre that exists. I go through months at a time where I'll get stuck in one of the subgenres. Lately, it's been mostly funeral doom and blackened doom. (I highly recommend Forgotten Tomb.)

I've been playing guitar for almost seven years now, and have developed my vocal talents over the past two or so. To me, nothing better helps me cope with this weight on my shoulders like metal.

I know this thread is old but I still want to comment anyway. Most people relate heavy metal to very dark, disturbing, satanic music with growling or screaming vocals. But in reality, heavy metal in its essence is just a faster-paced heavier version of the earlier hard rock and progressive rock before it. When I think heavy metal, the bands that come to mind are bands like Van Halen, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, Judas Priest, Ratt, KISS, Motley Crue, Motorhead, Guns n Roses, etc... However, most people who don't know better think heavy metal only consists of bands like Marylin Manson, Slipknot, Cannibal Corpse, Disturbed, and some of the more modern stuff that I think doesn't really represent the true form of heavy metal music. For me, the terms 'hard rock' and 'heavy metal' can be used interchangably. Heavy metal is about kick-ass riffs, killer solos, and phenomenally powerful vocals. This is just my opinion. And I'm a musician so I kind of know a lot about thie stuff.

IMO opinion those bands were the beginnings of metal today, but I disagree that heavy metal is the same as hard rock. When people say Metal, they often mean bands like Metallica and Megadeath, (Thrash Metal) or even yes Iron Maiden and Ozzy Ozzbourne, which is more like Metal proper. I'd say Heavy Metal was Metal that is abit heavier than normal metal, so more like yes slipknot and sepultura or lamb of god. Just my two cents.

Someone the other day told me AC/DC was heavy metal. Granted she was 50, but it's certainly more hard rock, as the overall lyrical themes and fairly typical hard rock style stops it being Metal, nevermind Heavy Metal.

Broadly I'd label heavy metal as anything that's a more hard to listen to than say metallica or Iron maiden, who are pretty middle of the road metal bands, and it includes many subgenres such as some thrash bands, death/black metal etc.

Besides that, this kind of music really helped me, much more deep and adult lyrical themes than you would find in alot of other genres, or other genres hint at it but metal bands often are more up front with it. Also the whole style I find much more original, entertaining and impressive than say rock and roll.

Hey man, I'm in no way trying to sound like a jerk, but I know what metal is. I've been playing guitar since I was knee high to a pine-cone. I know what e
Technically constitutes metal and what distinguishes metal from rock and all in between. And my knowledge of music in general is almost encyclopedic.

Most of what we now call 'modern rock' is almost exclusivley derrived from alternative and has pretty much completely departed from its roots in earlier metal and even the blues driven heavy rock that came before that. It is much less versitile and eclectic and contain very little variation in melody lines for verses choruses. Seriously, if you've heard 2 minutes of a song from staind or nickelback, you've basically heard all they have to offer.
