Music has always been adored by people around the world for centuries now. But with the division of its genres, some received more love than others.
Heavy metal music was one of the most popular genres back in the early 1970s. Its loud sound, edgy electric guitar music, and meaningful lyrics have attracted a large group of people around the world who have come together to appreciate and indulge in heavy metal culture.
However, in the past couple of years, other music genres such as hip-hop and R&B have taken the lead over this particular genre. Many would assume that this marks the era of the end of heavy metal- but the reality proves to be otherwise.
The love for heavy metal continues to thrive to this day. In fact, it is one of the only few music genres that has connected people from both the older and younger generation to talk about the same artists like the Rolling Stones and many others, which will never be out of style.
Moreover, many people prefer listening to actual meaningful lyrics rather than just some funky-produced tunes that lack powerful lyrics that hold no real significance. Consequently, this is also one of the reasons why heavy metal tends to connect with people on a more emotional level, and that is exactly what people want- music that they can resonate with.
Many non-metal heads tend to think that rock music is just loud people going all out and calling it music. And by not giving it a chance, they miss out on the true meaning behind the songs.
Sometimes, the best way to express your emotion and let it all out is through screaming and shouting – and heavy metal is the perfect interpretation of that. You can scream out all that built in emotion which has actually proven to relieve stress and help people regulate their emotions more effectively. So it’s not just that this unique genre brings people together, but it also offers you a sense of mental relief.
And heavy metal fans are already aware of these facts and are now helping others understand them, as well. For example, let’s take a lot at SEPSISS- a female-fronted metal band from Manchester, New Hampshire, New England who have been a significant difference in the heavy metal music community.
The band, SEPSISS, is a melodic version of heavy metal/hard rock music which was founded by Melissa Wolfe and William Savant. The band initially started out as just spreading their passion for heavy metal through their music- but they were confronted with challenges that changed their whole perspective.
After Savant was apprehended for a criminal act he was not involved in, the band made a promise to one another to change their ways, become more sober, and spread positivity with their music. And in a world where we are all desperately trying to find our salvation, their music was like a breath of fresh air. After so long, SEPSISS reminded people of the joy of rock music and rejuvenated a culture that was so close to extinction.
People still love heavy metal music. It makes them feel happy and emotionally connected to this genre. And like SEPSISS, many people have been inspired and are coming together to show that heavy metal music will stay alive till the end of time.
