First Post, Site Premise, and First Playlist

Hey guys, this is my Metal Music Site, where I will be posting my newest finds of all things metal, concerts, promos, songs, thoughts, and analyses.

So lets jump right in! My favorite type of metal is Progressive Metal, which is defined as,"A subgenre of heavy metal, which blends the powerful, guitar-driven sound of metal with the complex compositional structures, odd time signatures, and intricate instrumental playing of progressive rock. Many progressive metal bands are also influenced by jazz fusion and classical music. Like progressive rock songs, progressive metal songs are typically much longer than standard metal songs"(Wiki source). It consists of bands such as Blind Guardian, Kamelot, Iron Fire, Stratovarius, and Steel Attack to name a few. Im going to throw down a playlist of some of my favorite songs from each genre, each week, to help people get a more broad view of Metal as a whole genre, and find cool new bands to listen to as well.

  1. Another awesome band is Dream Theater, I recommend everyone listen to Metropolis Part 2: Scenes from a Memory. It's an amazing concept album by them.
