Introduction to Metal

Metal is a genre of music that is both wonderous and exciting. It mainly consists of electric guitars, drums, bass and vocals(harsh/soft/both).  You can always depend on Metal to lift your spirits on a bad day!

A lot of people misunderstand metal as ‘just noise’. It is in fact, very expertly crafted noise that your ears will love. Artists create a unique blend of soft and harsh, slow and fast elements in their music. This is what makes metal unique and especially beneficial for running, cycling or just working out.

A word on pop music: I do enjoy listening to pop music. Who doesn’t? It is engineered to be catchy and fun with familiar music elements and a melodic chorus. The problem is, I get bored of it after listening to it a few times and often forget the song completely in a few weeks. Contrast that to Classical and Metal music which I never fail to amaze me with their sheer variety and musical genius and hence have amazing replayability value!

I created a playlist of these songs for you to listen to on Gaana, completely free. You can listen to them in your browser, not necessary to install the Gaana app.

Track list (with sub-genre):

Blut im Auge by Equilibrium (Folk Metal)

Dance of Death by Iron Maiden (Heavy Metal)

Revelation by Insomnium (Melodic Death Metal)

Master of Puppets by Metallica (Thrash Metal)

Through the Fire and Flames by Dragonforce (Power Metal)

I discovered metal with my good friend Abhijeet way back in 2011-2012 and have explored so much since. Thanks to Abhijeet for helping me compile this list! Check out his awesome sketches on Instagram.
