    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, psychedelic rock, and acid rock, heavy metal bands developed a thick, massive sound, characterized by distortion, extended guitar solos, emphatic beats, and loudness.

    In the very late 1960s and 1970s, rock and roll turned into a harder, louder form of music called rock. In the 1970s, rock music bands played huge, loud concerts in outdoor stadiums. In the early 1970s, many rock bands played psychedelic rock, a type of rock music with lyrics and sounds that were intended to give the listener some idea of what it felt like to be on so-called "mind-expanding" (and usually illegal) drugs, and which some believe even enhanced the experience of being on the drugs themselves. Many bands from Britain played blues music mixed with rock music, such as The Animals, The Kinks, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, the Jeff Beck Group. In the late 1960s, a harder form of rock music called "heavy metal" was invented. The first use of the term was in a 1968 song by Steppenwolf, "Born to be Wild", and other early heavy metal bands appeared in the same year. Black Sabbath was the band that invented metal music in the late 1960s, the band played loud, hard rock music based on blu...

    In the 1980s more sub-genre's of Heavy Metal bands were created, one of which was "Hair-Metal" with Bands such as Mötley Crüe, W.A.S.P. and Ratt became popular. Heavy Metal rock bands had long hair and the men wore make up (lipstick and eyeshadow) and tight leather pants and boots. Many metal songs were about love, sex, partying, having a good time, illegal drug use, and drinking alcohol. Rarely,but sometimes, metal songs were also politically and socially critical. In the late 1980s, groups such as Poison and Warrantwere very successful, smashing the field with songs like “Talk Dirty to Me,” and “Cherry Pie.” Another type of heavy metal in the 1980s was thrash metal, also known as thrash. Thrash metal bands played a faster, more aggressive type of metal. Thrash metal bands Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayerare considered "The Big Four of Thrash."

    In the 1990s, a new form of heavy metal developed, called alternative metal. Alternative metal combined thrash metal and grunge rock with hip-hop music and industrial music.Also in the 1990s was nu metal, a shortening of "new metal". Nu metal mixed rap and hip hop style singing with metal music. Nu metal bands also often include DJ decks, synthesizers and other electronic instruments. Nu metal was very successful and made a lot of money, especially bands such as Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot and Disturbed. Two more aggressive styles of heavy metal music, death metal and black metal, are louder and faster than other types of metal.The singers usually do not sing, but instead they growl or roar to make the songs more intense. These lyrics often tell of suffering, dying, and war. The guitars are usually distorted and drum sets containing double bass drums. Other important styles of metal are: power metal, a style whose music often is about fiction and epics like The Lord of the Ri...

    The Women in heavy metal section has already tons of overlapping contents with the Characteristics section. Now you guys bring Poppy over here???Poppy is not metal. PMRC are posers. And Robert Christgau never likes metal. This section is trash! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vc06697 (talk • contribs) 03:48, 21 February 2021 (UTC) 1.

    Could someone please put all the Heavy metal templates in a navigation box (as has been done with Electronica, Rock music, and Punk rock)? 2601:C7:C201:C640:6402:2D5F:20D:8D78 (talk) 21:00, 17 March 2021 (UTC) 1.

    As a result of edits over the last year or so, the ‘women in metal’ section has acquired a pronounced Anglocentric skew, despite the UK not exactly being known for female metal musicians. The result is that it now devotes more space to documenting the opinions of British journalists, pop stars and non-notable academics, than it does to female metal musicians and their work, and presents an outdated, even stereotypical view of the genre.

    The re-direct to "Heavy metal (disambiguation)" should instead go to just "Heavy metal" (since it re-directs to that anyway). WockWole (talk) 17:20, 11 April 2021 (UTC) 1. For technical reasons, that cannot be performed. A bot will restore the (disambiguation) redirect. (CC) Tbhotch™18:06, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

    Should High Tide be added to the lead? “In 1968, Four of the genre's most important pioneers, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, and High Tide were founded.” They are consider the first proper British heavy metal band. Led Zeppelin wasn’t really heavy metal and Deep Purple didnt become metal until Deep Purple in Rock 1. Considered by whom? I am very familiar with the genre and I had to look them up. They're light years away from the level of success of the other bands mentioned. Bretonbanquet (talk) 18:19, 2 May 2021 (UTC) 1.1. Thats not how it works. Do you really thing only bands that have sold over 50 million records can create genres? I am talking about importance to metal not the must popular.--Fruitloop11 (talk) 19:13, 2 May 2021 (UTC) 1.1.1. Do you have a WP:RELIABLESOURCE to say they were influential though, that's the most important part of discussion? Quite a few would probably be needed to establish a consensus strong enough for them to be put in the lead. Issan Su...
