History of heavy metal

Heavy metal is a genre of rock music that developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It is characterized by a thick, aggressive sound, characterized by distorted electric guitars, bass guitar, drums, and sometimes keyboards.


The genre of heavy metal developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, mainly in the United Kingdom and the United States. Proto-metal bands such as Blue Cheer and Atomic Rooster were among the first to play heavy blues-rock, while Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple set the standard for what would become known as ” arena rock “. At the same time, Cream and Jimi Hendrix popularized blues-rock by fusing electric blues with psychedelic rock.

Heavy metal lyrics often deal with subjects such as death, violence, war, and other dark topics. Musically, heavy metal is characterized by loud guitars, heavy drums, and bass guitar. The songs often have fast tempo and aggressive lyrics.


The United Kingdom began developing its own style of heavy metal music in the late 1960s when bands like Cream, Black Sabbath,Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Atomic Rooster began to play powerful and lengthy blues-rock songs with distorted guitars and drum solos. Led Zeppelin and Rory Gallagher were among the first wave of British metal bands to gain popularity in the United States in the early 1970s.

In 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. Bands such as Diamond Head, Iron Maiden and Def Leppard followed in a similar vein.

During the 1980s, traditional heavy metal was reinvented by British and American bands such as Venom, Cinderella, White Lion, Mötley Crüe, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica and Megadeth. This period saw the rise of Goth metal, with Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride and Anathema achieving commercial success in the 1990s.

Themes in heavy metal


Death is a recurring theme in heavy metal, with many songs and videos focusing on the subject. Some bands use death as a way to shock or titillate their audience, while others use it as a way to explore the dark side of human nature. Regardless of the approach, death is often used as a way to explore the boundaries of what is acceptable in music.


Themes of rebellion are common in heavy metal music. The lyrics often deal with topics such as fighting against authority, expressing frustration with society, and celebrating individuality. The heavy guitar sound and aggressive vocals help to convey these emotions.

In the music video for “Aliens Go Heavy Metal”, the bandmembers are dressed as aliens who have come to Earth to start a heavy metal band. They are shown performing in front of a crowd of humans, who are initially skeptical of the band but eventually start to enjoy their music. The video ends with the aliens being arrested by the authorities, but they continue to play their music even while in jail.

This video is an example of how heavy metal can be used to express rebelliousness and individualism. The band members are shown as outsiders who are not afraid to stand up for what they believe in. They are also willing to have fun and enjoy themselves, even in the face of adversity. This attitude is something that many heavy metal fans can relate to.


Sex is a common theme in heavy metal music, appearing in both lyrics and music videos. In some cases, the sexually explicit content is meant to shock or offend listeners, but in other cases it is simply a part of the band’s image or persona. Some bands use sex as a way to sell their music, while others use it as a way to express their own sexuality.

Some common themes associated with sex in heavy metal music include:

– promiscuity
– group sex
– rape
– sexual violence
– prostitution
– incest
– bestiality
– pedophilia

Heavy metal fashion

In the music video for “Aliens Go Heavy Metal”, the alien band is shown decked out in heavy metal fashion. Spikes, leather, and chains are all prominently displayed. This video is a great example of how heavy metal fashion can be used to create a look that is both tough and stylish.


Leather has been a popular material for clothing and accessories for centuries, and it shows no signs of going out of style anytime soon. It’s usually associated with heavy metal music, but it can be found in all kinds of music genres.

Leather clothing is often seen as sexy and rebellious, which is why it’s so popular with musicians. It can be tight-fitting or loose, depending on your preference. It’s also durable, which is perfect for those who are constantly on the road.

If you’re looking to add some edge to your wardrobe, consider investing in some leather clothing. You’ll be sure to turn heads when you walk into a room.


Spikes are a major trend in heavy metal fashion, and they can be used to accessorize just about any piece of clothing. Spikes can be found on jackets, vests, shirts, pants, belts, and even shoes. If you’re looking to add a little edge to your outfit, spikes are a great way to do it.


Chains are a staple of heavy metal fashion, and they can be worn in a variety of ways. You can wear them as part of a necklace, bracelet, or even as a belt. They can be made from a variety of materials, including metals like silver and brass, or even leather.

Heavy metal music videos

Metallica – “Enter Sandman”

With over a billion views, Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” is one of the most popular heavy metal music videos of all time. The song is from the band’s self-titled 1991 album, Metallica, which is often referred to as The Black Album. The video was directed by Wayne Isham and features footage of the band performing live in concert.

Slipknot – “Wait and Bleed”

Slipknot’s “Wait and Bleed” was the first single from their debut self-titled album, and its video was the band’s first ever. It was directed by Thomas Mignone, who would go on to helm a number of other videos for the group, including “Left Behind,” “Dead Memories,” and “Snuff.”

The video follows a character called The Clown (played by Slipknot percussionist Shawn Crahan) as he wanders through a desolate, post-apocalyptic wasteland. The Clown is pursued by a pack of insect-like aliens, and as he tries to escape them, he encounters a number of bizarre creatures and objects, including a giant egg, a mutated dog, and a mechanical spider.

At the end of the video, The Clown finally comes face to face with his pursuers, and we see that they are actually human beings wearing masks that make them look like aliens. This reveal turns the video’s narrative on its head, and suggests that perhaps it is not The Clown who is the real monster after all.

Slayer – “Raining Blood”

Slayer is one of the most popular and influential metal bands of all time, and “Raining Blood” is one of their most iconic songs. The music video for the track was directed by JaimieTrueblood and premiered in 2006.

The video follows an alien invasion, with the aliens taking over a TV station and using it to broadcast their message to the world. The humans try to fight back, but they are no match for the aliens’ technology. In the end, the humans are all killed and the aliens triumph.

The video is simple but effective, and it perfectly captures the feeling of paranoia and dread that comes with an invasion. It’s also a great example of how metal can be used to create a sense of fear and suspense.
