Transcript of HEAVY METAL

HEAVY METAL! (1960-NOW) Heavy metal or mostly known as just metal is a genre of rock music that started in the early 60's from bands like led zeppelin DEEP PURPLE JIMMY HENDRICKS surprisingly the term heavy metal is unknown to were it came from but there are many early references to heavy metal. Some of them include - a line in the Steppenwolf song " Born to be Wild". In this particular line it says ''Heavy Metal Thunder...and the feeling that I'm under..." But at the time it wasn't really known for heavy metal music it was widely known as heavy rock but the people that didn't listen to to the music thought it was wild and rebellious THE ORIGINS From this day on there is still a huge debate on what was the first heavy metal band but before I mention that we have to go all the way back to that times of Beethoven or known as the classical era 300 years back Not everybody agrees to when i mention this but if you listen to an example like Beethoven's the 5th symphony..... If you noticed how the beginning sounded kind of evil JUST LIKE HEAVY METAL!!!!!!! For another example,usually the music dynamics in heavy metal goes fast then slow then fast or you can combine them................. so if you look at the song ''One'' by Metallica Heavy metal life style and fashion Interesting Fact On Beethoven's BIOGRAPHY the author said that when he presented his 5th symphony to the audiences from begining to the end every body was sighlent through the whole time........because no body was used to what he just did Fashion has played a huge role in heavy metal not only for the image but to express them selves. Some of the most common styles are leather jackets with paches on the back skiny jeans And usually long hair and jewlery(heavy metal jewlery) One of the most popular band that are known for there popular outragouse looks are KISS. These typs of images have earned heavy metal lovers a comon name that is called a metalhead or headbangers due to the long hair and styles. later on bands like Moterhead, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest introduced more fashions like bullet chains and leather looks AND THIS But of coures classical didnt evolve into Heavy metal but it is very simmilar when it comes to feel , texture , and creativity. Many consider that the first true heavy metal recording was by a USA band from California called Blue cheer who released a cover song by Eddie Cochran's Summertime blues SOUND HEAD BANGING MOSHING(DANCING) The devil horns!!!!!! Headbanging in heavy metal is very commun and is very agressive to show the love for the music and audiences have came up with many different types over the years. The wind mill SIDEWAYS MOTION INTERESTING FACT The term "Headbanger" may have originated in the band's name,Moterhead as in "Motorheadbanger". When the DEEP PURPLE frontman Ian Gillan was asked if he invented headbanging,he said, "That’s a definite possibility" Another common thing in Heavy metal concerts are brutal but entertaining,stage diving/moshpiting or known as slam dancing is aperintly a dance where a group of people push each other which started in the hardcore punk scene in Washington DC. While theres stage diving and crowed surfing but over the time many people started criticizing the crazy dance but also bands like the Smashing Pumpkins saidI just want to say one thing to you, you young, college lughead-types. I've been watchin' people like you sluggin' around other people for seven years. And you know what? It's the same ****. I wish you'd understand that in an environment like this, and in a setting like this, it's fairly inappropriate and unfair to the rest of the people around you. I, and we, publicly take a stand against moshing! Last but not least THE DEVIL HORNS!!!!! Or known as the Metal horns was first used by the the legendary Ronnie James Dio who popularized it to be one of the most imortent sighns in Heavy Meytal concerts Dio claimed that since his Italian grandmother was superstictious,she would use the maloik(metal horns)to ward off the evil eye. Heavy metal music is usaually loud and fast with distorted guitars , heavy bass and drum sound with a strong vigorous vocals but can also be mixed to being slow or medium with a clean sound. A metal band line up usually has a lead guitarist,rythm guitarist ,bass guitarist, a drummer and a singerwho may or may not be an instrumentalist and sometimes Keyboard instruments are used to enhance the fullness of the sound. suprisingly many popular musicians such as Edie Van Hallen and, Yngwie Malmsteen claimed that classical composers were a very important inspiration in their careers. the tempo in heavy metal music can range from slow balleds to very fast tempos that range from350bpm(beats peer minute) some of the hastest metal bands can range up to 367bpm! Lyrical themes In heavy metal the earliest bands like Black Sabath were different in a way that they didnt sing about about love,relation ship or whatever,they sang about more explicite and darker things such as death , horor , society even about drugs and how it affects them. One of the first bands to start singing about these factores such as drugs death and so on was Black Sabath then other bands started following. Social impact When Heavy Metal sruck the 1980's it strangly became the most popular music in historyand the the funny thing is that wereever you looked kids would be growing their hair long and showing the devil horns sighn. But resulting from that there were people that kritcised it saying that it was sick , repulsive , and even said that it was unsifisticated music for the outsiders and the kriticism went way beyond by religious groups protesting against it. The reason for this is because aperintly it glorifies the evil People like Daniel Dee Snider who is the lead singer for twisted sister was considered a dangerouse man to parents in the 80's,he was brought to court to testify befor the tour in 1984 Judas Priest which was a very popular band in america was sued for encouriging teenager's to commit suicide and lyrics which wasnt even the goal But because of the energy and creativity of the music it was atracting a very larg amount of teens and audiences. Genres of heavy metal There are literally a zillion types of heavy metal and is used to lable them but PLEASSSS.....ITS ALL HEAVY METAL KEEP ON ROCKING!!!! but almost everybody(it is true) says that black sabath was the first real true heavy metal band But Heavy Metals latest origins is Blues rock and jazz from bands like the Yardbirds and the Rolling Stones which gave insperation to what was heavy rock'n'roll like Led Zepelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabath and theis bands were the most succesfull in the mainstream and deifined the rules of heavy metal. The band led zepelin was usaually sining about magic while on the other hand Black Sabath was singing more about Death,personl experiences and darker themes. Later on in the 70's punk rock movment emerged in the USA and espesially the UK Some of the newest bands at the time were inspired by punk rock due to the lyrical themes and the high energy. Moterhead was the one of the first to establish heavy metal with punk rock. Later bands like Iron Maiden and Saxon they toughened up the sound, reduced its blues elements, and had increasingly fast tempos and this was known as NWOBHM(new wave of British heavy metal). The NWOBHM reenergized and rought back Heavy Metal due to the punk rock movment While NWOBHM movment started hiting the mainstream,in the early 80's more agressive and faster genres and bands started emerging from the underground and these included thrash metal and the first wave of black metal One of the most popular bands from the genres is METALLICA BUT IT HASNT STOPED HEAVY METAL FROM THRIVING!!!
