I'm working on a "demonstrative" speech on heavy metal, demonstrative meaning basically that I can spend 2/3rds of the 10 minute speech playing audio/video clips. So... I need some reccommendations for songs that define each genre.

I'm opening the speech for example with a 30 second clip of "Raining Blood", before going into an actual introduction (heavy metal is a genre that has blablalbla...)

I need some reccommendations fo reach of these areas:

If you can, PLEASE RECOMMEND SPECIFIC SONGS! Thanks!

Proto-metal (aka Zeppelin, ACDC, Deep Purple, bands that came right before metal)
Death
Black
Thrash
Speed (different enough from thrash/classic heavy? I'm not sure on this one)
Classic heavy metal
Doom
Power
Prog (possibly)

dark funeral for black metal, or dimmu borgir, although dimmu would fall better i think in the doom metal category.

GTFO the metal forum.

for power metal use stratovarious or Children of Bodom's Lake Bodom

for doom metal: electric funeral is actually a very good doom metal song, as is hand of doom, which are both off the paranoid album from black sabbath

doom metal is bands like black sabbath, wolfmother, and the sword.

yea, just leave speed out, its not that big a genre. If you really wanted to, check out Balls to the wall, fast as a shark by Accept

maybe add some melodic death
classic heavy metal - black sabbath
black - transilvanian hunger

You need New wave of british heavy metal like Priest and Maiden
also hair/glam metal was pretty big so you might wanna talk about that too

Very simple my friend. Play the song from the fathers of metal. IRON MAN!
Play Master of Puppets for thrash.
What do you mean by classic metal? Is that like Iron Maiden? If it is, play Run to the Hills. Or "Charlotte the Harlot..."

Speed Speed Metal Symphony -Cacophony
Black De Mysteriis Dom Sanathas -Mayhem
Classic Iron Maiden

wow dude tough question

for
proto metal-inna gada da vida by iorn butterfly like at the chorus or purple haze bl jimi hendrix

death metal- hanner smashed face by cannibal corpse also i'ld recommend pull the plug by death

black metal- we will rise by arch enemy would be a good "mainstream" example of black metal IDK emporer and and immortal bands lik that might be better choices

Thrash - caught in a mosh by anthrax or master of puppets my metaliica either way you candt go wrong

Speed-can't really think of any

Classic- crazy train by ozzy or iorn man

Doom-dying god coming into mortal flesh??? -by celtic frost very doomy song

Power- dragon force or fire wind i try not to listen to power metal so can't realy be of much help

prog- there's so many types i mean you could do meshugah dreamtheater tool or mastodon and each of those bands are totally different from each other

i'ld recomend adding metalcore to the list and nu metal because those are like it or not metal genres or at least ascociated with metal


nu metal- lfgot the life by Korn
metalcore - hourglass by lamb of god the really crazy break riff and right after that too

some how fighure a way to put a pantera song in there too

You bitch at him for not knowing what power metal is, then list Bodom as a power metal band?
#33
If you want an awesome clip for classic/thrash metal, show Metallica's One video, right around the part the double bass drums start doing the famous pattern that leads into the second half of the song. Then when the machine-gun riff kicks in and they're all headbanging at the same time...epic fvcken metal.

No. I'd say, Immortal, Mayhem, Emperor.

And somehow include how much variety there is in black metal. eg: Symphonic, Melodic, 1st/2nd wave (standard black metal, really), Atmospheric.

Proto - Black Sabbath - Into the Void
Death - Death - Crystal Mountain, or, CC - Frantic Disembowelment
Black - ...Gorgoroth - pretty much anything.
Heavy - Iron Maiden - The Evil that Men Do
Doom - Candlemass. Anything.
Power - Dunno. Not too into Power metal. Maybe some Hammerfall?
Thrash - Something by Kreator. Maybe Megadeth.
Prog - Opeth - Ghost of Perdition

Bodom is extreme power metal. They sound more like Sonata Arctica then At The Gates.


what the hell, theres extreme power metal?

I always see Bodom mentioned as Melodic Death.
#36
^ The only reason bodom is 'Extreme' power metal, is because of Alexi's vocals. Otherwise, they'd be straight power metal.

for thrash metal you have to put down a pantera/metallica song

death metal.. frantic disembowelment by cannbial corpse

prog metal - stream of consiousness by dream theater

doom - serpant eve by cathedral

proto - paranoid by sabbath or rock n roll by led zeppelin

hair metal (i agree with whoever said it was once big and influential, it should be mentioned) - cherry pie by warrant (everyone knows it)

classic heavy metal - 2 minutes to midnight by iron maiden or living after midnight by judas priest
#38
I've never even heard of extreme power metal
I checked out the definition and yea I guess they do fit perfectly in that
#39
id put:

Proto-metal : Ironman - Black Sabbath, everyone would recognize it and kinda get into it, if you put it first and all... hopefully
Black: Sons of Northern Darkness - Immortal
Thrash : i'm sure everyone would like Master of Puppets... but Tormentor - Kreator would be my choice
Speed: a bit too close to other genres to consider apart, but if you do Electric Eye - Judas Priest
Classic heavy metal : The Trooper - Iron Maiden
Doom : Epicus Doomicus Metalli - Candlemass (or another candlemass song)
Power : Pure Evil - Iced Earth
Prog (possibly) : Octivarium - Dream Theater or maybe even Family Ghost - King Diamond

Edit:

oh and for death, Hammer Smashed Face - Cannibal Corpse
#40
But isn't hair metal just classic heavy metal with makeup and crap? (I'll admit my total ignorance of this genre, I never listen to it)
