We're back with a new episode!

http://heavymetal666.com/2017/01/05/the-future-of-groove-metal/

We revisit the tragic night of December 8, 2004, the fallout among bands and fans the following day after the final live performance of Damageplan. And then we move to the advent of Hellyeah, and into the rise of Nu Metal and Metalcore. We close our examination of the subgenre, and dig deep into the Future of Groove Metal

We continue our examination of Groove Metal and move from the formative years of the subgenre and into worldwide success for Pantera and Sepultura. We begin to look through the 1990’s at other acts like Soulfly, Down, Machine Head, Chimaira, Prong and more – as we dive into the Rise of Groove Metal.

We restart our exploration of subgenres of Metal, and this time turn to one of most successful and prolific scenes to emerge in Heavy Metal during the 1990’s. With pioneers Pantera and Sepultura developing the style, we turn back the clock and dive into their inspirations and influences – in an attempt to discover the Origins of Groove Metal.

We turn to the works of H.P. Lovecraft and his Cthulhu Mythos. We review how the depth of his intense horror fiction influenced music, especially in the world of Heavy Metal. From the Call of Cthulhu, to Nameless Shapes and Things That Should Not Be, we fall into the depths of Lovecraft and Heavy Metal.

We take our fourth and final look into the style, and look at a few more bands that didn’t get a mention in our investigation of the Origins, Rise, and Future of Death Metal. From the initial days of the subgenre, and into the appearance of many varied offshoots, we examine More Chronicles of Death Metal.

We start to close our exploration of Death Metal, in which we examine the subgenre’s entrance into the 21st century. As it branched out into other forms of Extreme Metal, it additionally had an impact on subgenres like Metalcore. We also turn to tomorrow, and explore what we can expect in The Future of Death Metal…

We move in to examining the emergence of one of the most notable subgenres of Heavy ‪#‎Metal‬. Following in the footsteps of Thrash, Death Metal would become a new, integral, and critical part of the evolution of the genre. But before it could arise, the seeds for the style needed to be planted: we investigate the Origins of Death Metal.

Since its origin, metal has been plagued by misinterpretations from critics of the genre who claim the style corrupts its fans and listeners. From claims of devil worship, to the rise of the PMRC, and from the notorious Judas Priest trial, to cases such as the West Memphis Three, and more, we examine the Scapegoats and Controversies of metal.
