One of the best metal quotes (in a descriptive context)...


New member
"heavy metal uses apocalyptic themes and images of power and darkness, the ability to translate verbal ideas into musical ideas that successfully convey the ideas of the words is critical to heavy metal authenticity and credibility."

I read this today in of all places, Wikipedia. I think it might be one of the finest, single sentence decriptions of heavy metal music I've ever read.

Sounds really heavy, I should say. Thanks for letting me know such quote even existed!
I personally love something simpler, like
"Nobody dies a virgin. Life f***s us all." - Kurt Cobain, or
"Metal is the feeling of being an outsider, but still being part of something huge." - Brian Posehn
And of course the most epic one, by the grip and dark father of Black Sabbath - "WHo the ***k is Justine Biber?!?!"
