Metal.

Heavy metal is a subgenre of rock music that emerged as a defined musical style in the 1970s, having its roots in hard rock bands which, between 1969 and 1974, mixed blues and rock music to create a hybrid with a thick, heavy, guitar-and-drums-centered sound, characterised by the use of highly-amplified distortion.

Out of heavy metal various subgenres later evolved, many of which are referred to simply as "metal". As a result, "heavy metal" now has two distinct meanings: either the genre and all of its subgenres, or the original heavy metal bands of the 1970s style sometimes dubbed "traditional metal", as exemplified by Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, and Black Sabbath.

Heavy metal began gaining popularity in the 1970s and 1980s, at which time many of the now existing subgenres first evolved. Heavy metal has a large world-wide following of fans known by terms such as "metalheads" and "headbangers".\


Black metal.
Black metal started in the early 1980s with bands such as Bathory, Sodom, Mayhem, Mercyful Fate, and Hellhammer/Celtic Frost; and with asthetic and lyrical influences from Venom. These bands were Thrash metal bands that formed the prototype for the later second generation of black metal. The second wave of black metal, an essentially Scandinavian movement, started in the late 1980s and early 1990s, primarily in Norway. Black metal has gathered intense criticism from many sectors of society, for its brutal aesthetic, its misanthropic spirit, and the extreme ideology displayed by some musicians working in the National Socialist Black Metal subgenre. However, at the same time it experienced a meteoric rise in popularity among metal fans during the 1990s.

Nu-metal
Nu metal (also called new metal, aggro metal or nü metal using the traditional heavy metal umlaut) is a musical genre that has origins in the mid 1990s. It typically fuses influences from the grunge and alternative metal of the early 1990s with hip hop, electronic music and other metal genres, most often thrash metal and groove metal.


Death metal
Death metal is a sub-genre of heavy metal that evolved out of thrash metal during the early 1980s.

Death metal is a subgenre of heavy metal. Growling vocals are the primary identifier for death metal for the newer generation. But this by itself also includes works such as Welcome to Hell from 1981 by British metal group Venom where the vocals may be mostly "growling", but the music is not what is generally meant by "death metal" today. Venom never labelled what they did, but their album Black Metal became the basis for labelling music with 'Satanic' lyrics and growling vocals as "black metal".

Thrash metal
Thrash metal is a subgenre of heavy metal music, one of the extreme metal subgenres, that is characterised by its high speed and aggression.

The origins of thrash metal are generally traced to the late 1970s and early 1980s, when a number of bands began incorporating the sound of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal with elements of hardcore punk (in particular its drum tempos), creating a new genre and developing into a separate movement from punk. This genre is much more aggressive compared to its relative, speed metal. There is often significant crossover from one metal category to another, and the influence of non-metal genres, including classical music and jazz, is not uncommon.

Uh, Metal vocals can probably vary more than in any other genre. From low growls, to falsetto and everything between=P So im not sure what you mean^^ Unles your maybe referring to metalcore where they just scream their throats to oblivion.

I found a Queens of the Stone Age in my grandmas collection of music. It was extremely out of the blue.

Cacophony is the fucking bomb. Racer X is the best technical metal band by far, Impellitteri is the fastest guitar stuff in the world, and Vader is another great band.

The best metal is Black Sabbath, Dio, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Ozzy, RATM, Tool, and the few Motley Crue and Queen songs that warrant consideration for the "metal" label. Buttrock

Where's Megadeth and Slayer in there? They're mainstream and they do indeed play good music.

Kashmir intro is way heavy. And bands don't have to do all of there songs to one genre. Soem of his songs can be considered metal, others wouldn't be.

Heres a simple way to put it:

Deep Purple is metal. Led Zeppelin isn't.

that doesn't help.

I am serious, who or what defines a band as metal/punk/grunge or whatever other genre a band is classified as?

I consider it the other way around. Rock -> Hard Rock -> Metal.

The evolution of metal would be Blues-Rock -> Psychedelic Blues-Rock -> Proto-metal -> Early Metal.
