Rock music began to emerge quite a long time ago, back in the 60s of the last century. She grew out of styles such as blues and jazz. An amazing picture emerges if we cover the history of the development of this musical genre. Much of what blues and jazz grew into has become very heavy and difficult to understand.
Heavy rock today is quite a popular musical direction among young people. This concept is very broad, as it includes dozens, if not hundreds of genres.
Heavy foreign rock
In general, hard rock (which means “heavy”) in its purest form does not seem heavy to the modern listener at all. The fact is that this genre originated in the seventies. It replaced lighter, albeit "rock" music, such as The Beatles, The Animals, The Who and so on. Some of the most famous hard rock bands include: Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin (these bands were at the origins of heavy music), Guns N' Roses, Def Leppard, AC / DC, Mötley Crüe (they already sound more powerful, the heyday of their work fell on the 80s).
A little later with hard-rock began to develop heavy metal. These styles have a huge number of similarities. However, heavy is more guitar solos and melodiousness, a little more aggression, as well as mostly high vocals. Kiss, Iron Maiden and all the same Guns N' Roses and AC / DC are the brightest examples of this direction.
Soon, in parallel with hard rock and heavy metal, heavier styles began to develop. A fairly well-known band Metallica, for example, plays in the style of thrash metal. However, now you can see the beginning of a big competition called "Who is heavier?" Many will say that Metallica is not hard rock at all, and Anthrax, Slayer, Megadeth, who are part of the Big Four of thrash metal with this team, are also. At the same time, Sodom and Kreator, playing in the same style, can already be attributed to truly powerful teams. Thrash is the beginning of everything in extreme heavy music. This is about protesting what is happening in the modern world: wars, injustice, infringement of other people's rights.
You have probably already seen how diverse and multifaceted hard rock is. Groups that can be called "heavy" can differ significantly from each other in style, sound, ideology, lyrics, and so on.
For example, other styles have grown out of thrash. Here we can talk, for example, about speed metal. It shows the influence of heavy, both old and new waves. The development of the genre took place in the eighties. So, the most influential groups include Agent Steel, Helloween, Znöwhite, Grave Digger.
The Blind Guardian band is interesting for its history. Today these guys play in one of the lightest genres of metal - power. However, in the distant eighties they recorded two reference (according to many) albums in the speed metal genre. Over time, they have become more melodic and "kind", but some of the old speed metal tracks continue to play at their shows.
A lot of people like black metal. It will be quite difficult for a simple layman to understand what some people find in the work of bands such as Burzum, Immortal, Gorgoroth, Summoning and many others. Interestingly, this genre is another offshoot of thrash. At the moment, this is perhaps the hardest rock that exists. Contrary to popular belief that black metal bands worship the devil, this is not the case. A significant part of the creativity of such teams has a pagan or atheistic basis.
As you understand, hard rock is a very, very flexible concept. Here you will find wonderful classical "ballads", and driving songs, and protest compositions, and the most difficult depressive and extreme tracks.

Rock and roll music in the mid-50s grew out of the fertile soil of the blues, becoming a solid foundation for the development of a very versatile direction called "rock". It was in North America, when the youth suddenly "went crazy" and began to do something unimaginable on the guitar. Very soon, the rock and roll epidemic swept the whole world, causing a violent protest of the older generation. But why was it this way and not otherwise?
