Heavy metal has been a popular music genre for a long time. For those who are not aware of the genre, it is a form of rock music that was originally developed in the late 1960s and the early 1970s. The music genre was largely conceptualized in the United Kingdom and the United States.
The roots of the genre can be very much found in blues rock. One of the things that you will often find very distinctive in the bands playing heavy metal is a thick, massive sound. This sound is characterized by the extended guitar solos and the overall loudness that has come to be associated with the music. A common emotion that you can often find in the heavy metal performances is the aggression that comes with the genre.
The genre was brought into prominence around the year 1968. This was the direct result of heavy metal bands such as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, who were the first of their kind. Their acts attracted large audiences.
