1. Probably the best genre of music. Created
by bands like
Led Zepplin and Deep Purple, then
revloutionized by 80's bands like
Iron Maiden and METALLICA, and is still kept alive today
by bands like Tool
and Cradle of Filth. Basically, its pure anger turned into music.
2. A animated, adult-oriented film (u.s.) based on a french, Adult oriented Comic. It has gained a large cult following and, even spawned a crappy sequal, Heavy Metal 2000
