Though less commercially successful than the rest of the Big Four, Slayer released one of the genre’s definitive records: Reign in Blood (1986) was credited for incorporating heavier guitar timbres, and for including explicit depictions of death, suffering, violence and into thrash metal’s lyricism.[207] Slayer attracted a following among far-right skinheads, and accusations of promoting violence and Nazi themes have dogged the band.[208] Even though Slayer did not receive substantial media exposure, their music played a key role in the development of extreme metal.[209]

The electric guitar and the sonic power that it projects through amplification has historically been the key element in heavy metal.[10] The heavy metal guitar sound comes from a combined use of high volumes and heavy distortion.[11] For classic metal guitar tone, guitarists maintain moderate levels gain at moderate levels, without excessive preamp or pedal distortion, to retain open spaces and air in the music; the guitar amplifier is turned up loud to produce the characteristic “punch and grind”.[12] Thrash guitar tone has scooped mid-frequencies and tightly compressed sound with lots of bass frequencies.[12]Guitar solos are “an essential element of the heavy metal code … that underscores the significance of the guitar” to the genre.[13] Most heavy metal songs “feature at least one guitar solo”,[14] which is “a primary means through which the heavy metal performer expresses virtuosity”.[15] One exception is nu metal bands, which tend to omit guitar solos.[16] With rhythm guitar parts, the “heavy crunch sound in heavy metal … [is created by] palm muting” the strings with the picking hand and using distortion.[17] Palm muting creates a tighter, more precise sound and it emphasizes the low end.[18]

U2 is one of the best bands ever! With or Without You, One, Where the Streets Have No Name… Really guys. Lots of the higher-ranked bands are mildly painful to listen to. U2 has way more good songs than some of those bands. Bono is the best, the Edge is fabulous on guitar. If you really listen to some of their songs, not just their most recent album, you would agree with me.

Mel, it’s all about what you were listening to back in high school or in your dorm room. If the music became part of the soundtrack of your life, you never let it go. For much of that Classic Alternative, exposure was spotty, situational, and market by market. Good to hear from you.

They’re more metal than Hard Rock,but I’ll take them. I listen to all these young punks talk about Metallica and I always have to school them and let them know, there would be no Metallica if it wasn’t for Black Sabbath!

Although bands such as Sarcófago had been donning corpsepaint, by 1990, Mayhem was regularly wearing corpsepaint; many other black metal acts also adopted the look. Bathory inspired the Viking metal and folk metal movements and Immortal brought blast beats to the fore. Some bands in the Scandinavian black metal scene became associated with considerable violence in the early 1990s,[228] with Mayhem and Burzum linked to church burnings. Growing commercial hype around death metal generated a backlash; beginning in Norway, much of the Scandinavian metal underground shifted to support a black metal scene that resisted being co-opted by the commercial metal industry.[229]
