The Summer Playlists: Volume 2
From time immemorial, metalheads have been regarded with frowns of disapproval. What society fails to comprehend is how the aggressive nature of this music serves as a healthy outlet for frustration—an emotion we all have our own ways of dealing with.
Musician and listener alike allow the coil around their hearts to unwind. Bodies thrash in unison to the groove of the instruments, vocals mending the fragments of their soul back together. Join us, as we take you on a journey through the evolution of metal. From the days of its genesis through Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden—to when the titans of nu metal showed the world how to fuse metal grooves with hip-hop tunes.
