Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. Heavy metal is more commonly associated with headbanging, satanism, moshpits and decapitation of small mammals. However, according to a new study, metal and all forms of "extreme" music can positively influence the listener, inspiring calm rather than anger.

    Death metal is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal, considered one of the hardest and heaviest. It is characterized by its deep voices, known as guttural, distorted guitars and with a slightly low pitch, fast percussion (with a dominant use of double pedal), complex musical structures.

    In my opinion I think this is a good thing because it makes more people listen to this type of music since before it was not very listened to by the listeners and it makes the listeners calm down.

  3. Heavy metal was born in the 1960s in the UK influenced by other kinds of music like hard rock. It was very popular in the 1960s and 1970s and from the 1990s it becaame less popular, but nowadays you can find heavy metal bands all over the world. Heavy metal has also many subgenres and the hardest and heaviest is death metal, which is characterized by its guttural voices and its musical structures.

    It is usually associated with aggressive behaviour, decapitation of small animals, satanism or canibalism. Because of this, people who don't listen to heavy metal can think that people who listen to this music is aggressive and insensitive to violence, but they're wrong. According to a new study people who listen to heavy metal or similar music can be posistively influrnced by the music because it inspires calmness.

    I think heavy metal can help people because its characteristics make people feel emotions like calmness and joy. In my case, I listen to many genres of music but mostly to rock, rap and heavy metal and I can say that when I listen to these songs I feel calmer and even happier because in my opinion the aggresive lyrics and songs in general can make you calmer and also can make you feel better when you are sad or angry.

  4. Heavy metal is a musical genre that incorporates elements inspired by blues rock, acid rock of the 60's and classical music, along with hard rock, with which it shares essential features. The origin of heavy metal dates back to the late 1960s, driven by some groups of the time, which were incorporating more powerful and distorted sounds, added to more energy. Heavy metal gained popularity in the United Kingdom and the United States during the 1970s, even more so at the end of the 1970s, until its establishment and universal diffusion during the 1980s.
    The origin of the term heavy metal is not completely clear. One version argues that it was coined by the writer William S.
