Albums of Hard Rock music

In the formation of hard rock, an important role was played by psychedelic direction, which enriched music with a lot of new techniques. The musicians were looking for new means of expression of their feelings, emotions and thoughts.

History of development

In the mid-1960s, during the endless experiments with sound, there emerged a new method of guitar amplification, in which the amplifying equipment was overloaded, which resulted in a powerful growl - overdrive. Many of the performers started using this, but only heavy rock bands managed to bring it to the fore.

However, this direction is rooted not only in psychedelia. Some leaders of current hard rock music downloads used to play quite different songs. For example, the first album of Led Zeppelin can be attributed to pure blues-rock, and in early records of Deep Purple it is possible to trace passion for classical music (the album "Concerto for group and Orchestra" - was recorded as a classical symphonic work, mixed with the rock sound of the group).

In addition, a huge role in the development of the discussed direction played the blues. Musicians, who buy or download hard rock songs, may hear that almost all riffs and the vast majority of solos and vocals are based on the pentatonic scale, which was originally used by bluesmen. As for the rhythm of hard rock, it was also formed under the influence of the blues. Suffice it to say that the genre often uses shuffle rhythm, which is a hallmark of so-called "black" music - jazz and blues (well, one of the most striking examples of the use of shuffle rhythm is "Into the fire" song recorded by Deep Purple, which you can listen online on our site).

You also can buy other genres of lossless music for us such as Free Jazz.
