Black Metal Music Description

''Black Metal'' came to life and took his name also in 1982 from the album [m=57707], that also influenced the creation of other extreme Metal styles such as Thrash, Speed and Death.

A form of overtly occult extreme metal that propagated widely in the 1990s as a reaction to the popular death metal and grind of the time, influenced by more primitive metal styles of the early to mid '80s (sometimes retroactively labeled as "first wave black metal").

The style is typified by high-pitched screaming/shrieking vocals, distorted, trebly guitar often tremolo-picked, and fast, often simple drumming. Also its lyrically it focuses in Satanism.
