Metal has a long and noteworthy tradition all around the world; almost every country in the world has a least ONE metal band to boast about. This diversity has led to a number of styles and genres; here are a few of the very best!
- Hair Metal
Hair metal, such as Poison and Judas Priest, has a firm grip on the 80s as the most popular genre to emerge from that era. With loud, reverberated drums and high-pitched singers, hair metal may sound a bit dated today. But I dare you to put on “Living After Midnight” and NOT nod your head along with the music!
- Doom Metal
This sludgy style, pioneered by Black Sabbath, was more popular in the 90s and early 2000s than it is today, but it still has a place in metal history! It is a slowed down and low-pitched, but man it packs an emotional punch!
