Metal music is a genre of rock music that has its roots in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It typically features heavy, distorted guitar riffs, powerful vocals, and complex rhythms and structures. It is known for its aggressive and powerful sound, and is often associated with themes of rebellion and anti-establishment. Metal music is characterized by its loud volume, fast tempo, and powerful drumming. It also has a wide range of sub-genres, each with its own unique characteristics. Some of the most popular sub-genres of metal include thrash metal, death metal, and black metal.

Thrash metal is known for its fast-paced, aggressive sound and often features lyrics that deal with social and political issues. Death metal, on the other hand, is known for its extreme brutality and often features lyrics that deal with death, violence, and the occult. Black metal is a subgenre of heavy metal that is known for its dark and evil sounding music, often featuring lyrics about satanic and anti-Christian themes.

Metal has a wide and diverse fan base, and it is one of the most popular and enduring forms of rock music. It has a rich history, with many iconic bands and musicians influencing its development. Some of the most influential metal bands include Black Sabbath, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Megadeth, and Judas Priest. Metal music continues to evolve and change with the times, with new bands and sub-genres emerging all the time, making it a constantly evolving and exciting genre of music.

Circuits is a progressive metal piece with so many different riffs and sequences.

If this song was an object it would've been an object that has been stuck at the bottom of the sea, corroding for hundreds of years. I really enjoy the mix, though. It's filthy, dirty and lasts for just as long as it needs too! Any longer and my brain...

Instrumental music made for piano and strings. The style is Classical Soundtrack music and the mood is mournful and sad. This music is a perfect background in films, tv series and other productions with sadness and calm scenes.
