Metal as a music genre developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, with many music fans crediting Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin as the originators.
From there, the genre entered a period that has become known as New Wave of British Heavy Metal, or NWOBHM for short, which lasted from the late 70s into the mid-80s. Since the late 1980s, the genre has evolved and can now be classed as an umbrella term for many sub genres, including thrash, black metal and deathcore. Metal is the reason why today we have such genres as grunge, alternative rock, punk pop and nu metal.
