• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Headbanger #1: Wha-? What's that sound!?
Headbanger #2: It's like an angel singing...
Headbanger #3: A devil screaming!
Headbanger #1: It is the pounding of Creation's Hammer upon the Anvil of Time!
Headbanger #3: IT'S FUCKING AWESOME!
Eddie Riggs: It's called... Heavy Metal.


A musical genre originating in the 1960s and 70s, influenced by Blues and Psychedelic Rock, emphasizing heavy, powerful sound with distorted guitars and (sometimes) extended solos.

Named after a line from "Born to Be Wild", Steppenwolf's most famous song - which is not an example of the style.

Famous for Heavy Metal Umlauts, as well as MetalHeads having huge online arguments about which bands are and aren't metal.

For an in-depth look, see Heavy Metal/Analysis and the Map of Metal.

Not to be confused with the animated film of the same name.
