Albums of Heavy Metal music

Heavy metal had been finally formed by the end of 1970 with the arrival of the so- called new British wave. Even now this genre is characterized by rather ambitious rating of heavy metal downloads.

Characteristics

In its modern form it is characterized by: an average or an accelerated pace, aggression, the central role of lead guitarist, lengthy and technically skilled guitar solos. Vocals are usually high. Subjects of lyrics are varied: there can be songs about war, apocalypse, social and philosophical themes, in some albums there even happen to be songs about love. Rebellious themes ensure great number of heavy metal downloads among youth. Musicians and fans of the genre ate a part of special aesthetics. Concerts of bands are typically bright with light and pyrotechnic effects. You can see it, if you download heavy metal music video.

Popularity

The genre served as the basis for development of future directions. In the early 1980s, many bands began to increase the speed and aggressiveness of their sound and rhythm, creating a wide range of new sub-genres. With the advent of many branches of the genre, the number of new bands playing classic heavy metal began to decrease. The basic elements of the traditional heavy are preserved by some power metal bands, which have reduced speed and increased the heaviness, such as HammerFall, Edguy, et al. Many groups that began with thrash metal, such as Metallica, Megadeth, and Iced Earth, later changed their style towards heavier one. The band Lordi won the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest, increasing the popularity of the direction and encouraging people to buy heavy metal music.
