Metal - My Love, My Choice, My Emancipation
[For the uninitiated: Metal, actually Heavy Metal - that's what I refer to, is a genre of rock music ........ it is characterized by a thick, massive, and amplified to a distorted level, with extended guitar solos, emphatic beats, and varying from psychedelic to hardcore punk.] I find it liberating largely because of its 'no limits' license to thrill, intoxicate and sensitize, all at the same time. I love the sub-genres too, and there are a whole lot of them! Many are critical of Heavy Metal because of the excesses that come to the fore by virtue of the licentious lifestyle endorsed by the fans, or groups of fans, it is the sub-culture that should come under scrutiny, that's what I feel, and not the genre of music itself. Last word: Listen. Enjoy. But do not over-indulge. It is an acquired taste indeed, and once acquired, it grips you totally!!!!!!
