Defending heavy metal

Craig’s written a very thoughtful piece on one of his favourite musical genres. Personally I’m not a big fan of heavy metal (although I really like progressive metal, which I guess isn’t too much different), but I know that it’s not a genre that one should generalise and dismiss in one foul swoop. Craig shows some fine examples of how thought provoking the lyrics actually are from bands such as Megadeth and Iron Maiden.

  1. I was never a fan of heavy metal. But weirdly enough really do enjoy them live. There is a pretty huge metal culture where I am from and it is always great fun to see good bands. Some of them just seem to have an impact.
