Alternative Metal

Alternative Metal is a genre of music that combines elements of alternative rock and heavy metal, resulting in a diverse and hybrid sound. This genre emerged in the 1980s and 1990s as a fusion of alternative rock’s melodic sensibilities and unconventional song structures with the heavier guitar-driven sound of metal. Alternative Metal often incorporates a wide range of influences, including grunge, industrial, funk, and progressive rock, leading to a sound that is dynamic, experimental, and characterized by its willingness to push the boundaries of traditional genres. Bands within this genre may employ distorted guitar riffs, powerful vocals, and a balance between melody and aggression, creating a versatile and unique musical experience.
