Overview of Heavy Music Styles (part 3)

Folk Metal – metallers used elements of folk music in the 70s. Irish folk tunes were featured in the songs Led Zeppelin and Thin Lizzy. The latter generally recorded a cover version of the old folk song ‘Whiskey In The Jar “, which was recently rewritten (already as a Thin Lizzy cover) by the most pop metal band of the Universe Popsallica. But these were only small intersperses of folk music, real folk metal formed only With the advent of the thrash band Skyclad in 1990. This group used folk melodies, poems and instruments in their rather heavy songs, putting all of Europe on their ears, followed by many different variations of Folk Metal, for example Viking Metal, Folk-Black, Folk- Doom, Folk-Gothic and even Folk-Death and Folk-Industrial! Folk is now at the top of its popularity. Recommended bands: Skyclad, Otyg, Finntroll, Vintersorg, Cruachan, Suidakra, Storm, Subway To Sally, In Extremo, Gods Tower

Hard Rock (Hard Rock) – the concept is very ambiguous. In our country, everything that came before NWOBHM is called “hard”, i.e. Kiss, Uriah Heep, Deep Purple, etc., but in many other countries, Hard Rock is almost a synonym for Heavy Metal. To verify this, it is enough to open any foreign metallized magazine. These are the cockroaches! In order not to get confused in all this, I prefer to use the term Hard’n’Heavy.

Heavy Metal – This musical style originated in the late 60s in England with the advent of bands such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath. Their first albums produced the effect of a bursting bomb in near-music circles. Heavy guitar riffs, strong aggressive vocals, powerful rhythm section, complex long compositions with numerous guitar solos – this cocktail could not leave anyone indifferent. On both sides of the Atlantic, metal bands began to appear like mushrooms after the rain (Nazareth, Alice Cooper, Judas Priest, Kiss …), but by the mid-70s interest in heavy rock had fallen dramatically, it was the time of punk dawn. But the metallers did not quit their job, moreover, young teams continued to appear in the UK, with the help of which the popularity of heavy increased again in the late 70s (NWOBHM). Unlike some other areas of metal music, the main thing in heavy metal is the melody. The themes of heavy metal songs have no strict focus and can range from love stories to the afterlife mystery. In the 80s, Heavy Metal was transformed in other directions: Speed, Thrash, Doom, Death … Nowadays, almost no one plays a clean heavy, but it still lives in our hearts and warms our (e) ears! Recommended listening groups (Hard’n’Heavy): Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Deep Purple, Saxon, Led Zeppelin, Accept, Warlock, Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest, Motorhead, Manowar, Axel Rudi Pell, UFO, AC / DC, Dio, Aria, Black Obelisk, Sinner, Pink Cream 69

And remember: styles are just labels hung by critics. The main thing is that you like the music!
