What makes something metal? The music has raw power and attitude. Its all about taking rock to the next level with edginess. The extremes of volume, squeals of guitar, very fast or slow tempos, death, politics, energy and giving the Man the finger. The Dionysus coming out at a concert and letting your inner beas let loose in a mosh pit. Best concerts were Opeth and Children of Bodom.
I mostly like the variety. You got slow metal, fast metal, angry metal, sad metal, happy metal..

Well, maybe not so much happy metal.
Here have a waffle!
I like it when they turn metal, (tons and tons of it), into gigantic pipe organs..!

Now that's heavy....., both figuratively and literally..!!!

As a side note, have you ever wondered about what's going on in the subtext, when you play something like Bach's, "Tocata and Fugue in D Minor", on a pipe organ, in a church..... ?
