About alternative metal


Alternative metal is a style of alternative rock and heavy metal that gained popularity in the early 1990s.

Alternative metal usually combines heavy metal with alternative rock, and in some cases other genres, such as hardcore punk and progressive rock. Alternative metal bands are often characterized by heavy guitar riffs, melodic vocals, unconventional sounds within other heavy metal genres, unconventional song structures and sometimes experimental approaches to heavy music.
