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.

Starts of with acoustic guitar and a very interesting chord progression with lovely melodies. After about 1,5 minute everything takes of, and becomes a very cinematic metal piece with fantastic melodies inspired by some of the greatest Scandinavian metal bands. The last part is also really cool. I hope you...

This is probably some of the best melodic metal music on the royalty free marked. A true cinematic / melodic metal hybrid with some many different parts, that you're bound to find one you can use. It goes on for almost 10 minutes and stays interesting the whole way.

The very famous piece originally written by Italian composer Gioachino Rossini in the 1800s. Here with a little twist. Extended license purchase includes all versions (orchestral, metal, drums and kazoo)

Cinematic semi-dark metal piece that starts of very atmospheric before it goes absolutely mental.

A very melodic and heavy rock/metal piece with both slow melodic sections, as well as heavier parts that will make your heart skip a beat.

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...

Inspired by Tool. A piece full of awesome distorted riffs that doesn't make any sense. Will definitely grab your viewers attention.

Just a really, really heavy metal instrumental. It has a lot of really cool riffs for when metal is needed. Parts can also be cut out if you like them better than others.

Epic metal piece in the style of Ensiferum, Amon Amarth and other very awesome bands.

Aka Manah is a weird piece, where beautiful piano and a facepainted metal band meet. If you’re able to appreciate the heavy guitars, drums and bass (which you should) this piece will hopefully make you bang your head invoulentarily

A re-creation of a really old track, with a metal twist. I’m not sure I even have the old version anymore. This piece has a lot of Scandinavian elements and melodies. All baked into one epic cinematic metal piece.
