Today’s metal history lesson explores a rash of mostly new bands commingling the most extreme metal sounds with more traditional and accessible hard rock music. Check out the use of black metal, doom, occultism, thrash, and others in the heavy rock of Khemmis, Cloak, Tribulation, Ghost, Death Alley, Pallbearer, Chelsea Wolfe, Satyricon, and more. See a new movement take shape before your eyes—know your roots!
