Transcript of Heavy Metal and It's Impact on Society

HEAVY METAL AND IT'S IMPACT ON SOCIETY ORIGINS INTRODUCTION MUSICAL ROOTS SOUND ENVIRONMENTS/FANS/CULTURE CENSORSHIP GENDER & SEXUALITY RELIGION & SATANISM DEATH & VIOLENCE CONCLUSION - Classical - Blues Classical - Wagner - Bach Blues - Pre-metal/rock - Black Sabbath Pre-metal/rock Black Sabbath - Late 1960's - 'Black Sabbath' - First album - Legacy "Black Sabbath has been so influential in the development of heavy metal rock music as to be a defining force in the style. The group took the blues-rock sound of late '60s acts like Cream, Blue Cheer, and Vanilla Fudge to its logical conclusion, slowing the tempo, accentuating the bass, and emphasising screaming guitar solos and howled vocals full of lyrics expressing mental anguish and macabre fantasies. If their predecessors clearly came out of an electrified blues tradition, Black Sabbath took that tradition in a new direction, and in so doing helped give birth to a musical style that continued to attract millions of fans decades later." - Tritone F-G, G-A, A-B - Key
Ingredients - Environments - Fans - Culture "As a musician I have a real passion for music and putting my feelings and emotions across in a passionate way. From a young age I was into alternative and prog rock, and as I aged the music did too. As with many ilks, I found the heavier the metal, the more emotion and feeling was transferred from the musician to the listener. I don't always use metal music to portray anger and aggression, but love, friendship and great times and memories and the metal genre is a great vent as a vocalist to show this passion. The musicians, the fans, the promoters and industry all work for the music, the passion and the scene, and this means a lot to me as a musician and a fan. The metal and alternative industry is a closer scene, more a family of people appreciating the art, rather than a money making tool for the fat cats at the top." Daniel Norman, 29, musician - PMRC - 'Filthy Fifteen' - Dee Snider Jack Wilson, 29, fan "The reason I like metal music is because its all about raw emotion and passion, the lyrics actually mean something, and the music it's self is written by artists with real instruments and talent." - Male dominated - 'Glam' - Women in metal Motley Crue Poison - Christianity - Satanism - 'Black metal' - Alice Cooper - Cannibal Corpse - Controversy "The first time somebody who knows nothing about the death metal scene see's one of our album covers, it's going to shock them, and if it doesn't then we didn't make a very good album cover." Alex Webster, Cannibal Corpse.
