There are many types of metal music. Thrash Metal, Heavy Metal, Nu Metal, Alternative Metal, Metalcore and Glam Metal. It’s unfortunate how metal is judged harshly because some people “can’t understand it.”

Metal music is very expressive and deep. In fact, it has a much deeper meaning than other genres, such as pop music. In metal music, you can hear the singer’s emotions, their passion, and how strongly they feel about whatever they’re singing about.

My favorite type of metal happens to be Nu Metal, mostly because some of my favorite bands fall into this category. Nu Metal is described as “a fusion genre that blends alternative metal and groove metal elements with other styles, including grunge industrial, funk and hip hop.”

Anytime someone asks me what music I listen to and I respond with “Metal music,” some then follow up with “So…do you like, worship Satan or something?”  No, I do not.

I wish that people would get that stereotype out of their heads. Metal music is portrayed as scary and threatening, when it is actually not. It can be scary and it can be threatening, but not all of it is.

That’s like saying all rap music is about shooting people and doing drugs, or all country music is about drinking beer and hunting things – when it is not. 

My advice to those who are not that familiar with metal music would be to not degrade or judge it simply because of rumors you have heard about it.
