From legends such as Metallica and Iron Maiden to innovative new groups that push the genres in different directions, Heavy Metal is here to stay. Heavy Metal as we know it today is a cousin of punk and hard rock, and it features some elements from both genres. While Black Sabbath are often praised as pioneers of the genre, they took what they learned from all the 70s rock bands they loved and brought the volume and darkness to the Max. On the other hand, they also inspired other artists such as Metallica, who were not only just in love with Hard Rock and Black Sabbath, but also with the growing underground American hardcore punk community, including artists such as Black Flag or The Misfits, who were playing music at increasingly fast paces. This eclectic approach allowed heavy metal to branch out and find contamination with other genres, including Thrash Metal, Metalcore, Doom, Death Metal and Epic Metal. This is our hottest and hardest playlist and it sheds light on the story of heavy metal with an incredible list of instant classics!
