Every musical genre has its fans and its detractors. But every genre deserves respect.
People who turn up their noses as — say, Polkas — will sniff and tell you, “There is no such thing as a GOOD polka!”
Yet I can take you to certain towns and show you crowds of people dancing and drinking and having a good time (and paying good money) to enjoy the polka.
I dabbled in heavy metal quite a few years ago and I think there is even a sample of my work on my music page (link is over in the right-hand column).
If your goal is to write heavy metal songs, you may want to check out “tips for writing diverse metal genres” over on the Ultimate Guitar website.
