For many heavy metal music is something of an acquired taste, but for those that love it it can become an obsession. Heavy metal bands have huge, devoted fan followings and most concerts are sell out shows. For years heavy metal music has gotten a pretty bad rap, being blamed for everything from the deterioration of youth to the school shootings in high schools across the US.
The truth is heavy metal is more than just loud noise it is a statement, a social commentary on the issues that their listeners face everyday. Bands write songs about love, loss and social justice. They just do it…loudly.
We are here to bring you the best of heavy metal including the new bands rising up the charts, old school classics and what is happening in the world of metal today.
