Rooted in psychedelic and heavy blues rock, metal first started emerging in the late sixties with bands such as Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. Metal is characterized by heavy distortion, extended guitar solos, and loudness in general, but it isn't limited to these characteristics. Some of the best metal bands transcend the genre altogether. There are many sub-genres, including black metal, sludge metal, and thrash.
