You are not the kind of person who can live your life according to a pop song! No, you need a gritty, loud, heavy metal anthem to sum you up. You need a song that reaches deep down inside you and speaks from your soul! You need a riff that drives the point home and gets your horns flying above your head.
Reaching all the way back to its roots in the ‘60s, many believe that heavy metal began with the likes of Black Sabbath. Though some would disagree and point to ‘70s bands like Led Zeppelin, no one can dispute that Iron Maiden and Judas Priest gave rise to the genre. More modern bands like Disturbed and Halestorm, are keeping the tradition alive to this day!
