  Heavy metal music
Heavy metal is an evolutionary product of pop, blues and "classical" music with a generally accepted life cycle of 20 years, from approximately 1970 to 1990.
Heavy metal is mainly blues-based, with pentatonic scales and a blues-like song structure; fl metal is based on classical music, even if at a first glance it seems to be only distorted guitars playing very fast a repeating melody.
Ultimately, "pure" heavy metal would position itself at the periphery of pop culture, never quite at center, and metal denizens will contend that the move towards the center was a commercialism that compromised both the artistic integrity of the form and the opportunity for messages to be taken seriously.

 Nu metal Biography,info
The origins of nu metal can be pinpointed to the Lollapalooza music festival in the 1990s which increased the exposure of bands who performed brands of metal and metal-influenced alternative music separate from traditional genre approaches (see Alternative metal).
The term "nu metal" was coined in the late nineties to denote the resurgence of metal in the public eye with the rise in popularity of bands such as Korn, Limp Bizkit, and Deftones, as well as the success of the traveling Ozzfest festival.
Nu metal bands often feature aggressive vocals that range from melodic singing akin to pop and rock (and in many cases punk and emo), guttural screaming and shouting from various forms of metal music, and rapping.

 Get Ready to ROCK! Review of CD album by funk rock metal band Living Colour called Collideoscope
You see Living Colour are a fine contemporary funk rock metal band and in a post 9/11 situation they have plenty to say, always being the more politically aware amongst their peers.
Metal and hard rock fans should lap this up.
Perfectly acceptable fodder but it tries to be all things to all men, alternating between a heavily 70s reminiscent style and today’s nu metal sound without ever successfully blending the two.

 Extreme vs the Funk Nazi's
Their were certain crucial elements of funk that Extreme was missing, particularly in the bass work and in the way that the horn parts were structured.
In my view, the same could be said of Extreme, they had defied the "rules" of Funk because, from what I and others could tell, they didn't know what Funk was, and as a result, produced something that was kinda "Funky", but not Funk.
Funk was heavily supported by Black people, and Black People are still fl even if they do cut their hair.

 Funk Biography,info
Jimi Hendrix was the pioneer of funk rock and his improvised other-worldly solos influenced Ernie Isley of The Isley Brothers and Eddie Hazel of Funkadelic.
In the 1970s, a new group of musicians further developed the "funk rock" approach innovated by George Clinton, with his bands Parliament and, later, Funkadelic, produced a new kind of funk sound heavily influenced by jazz and psychedelic music.
The two groups had members in common and often are referred to singly as "Parliament-Funkadelic." The breakout popularity of Parliament-Funkadelic gave rise to the term "P-Funk," which both referred to the music by George Clinton's bands and defined a new subgenre.

 Mordred - Free Music Downloads, Videos, CDs, MP3s, Bio, Merchandise and Links
In the late '80s, San Francisco's Mordred was one of the first bands associated with the brief but extremely media-hyped stylistic fad called funk metal.
While their precise style of power metal riffing was no different from that of other Bay Area stars such as Testament and Forbidden, the band distinguished themselves thanks to Liboon's uncommonly upfront bass work and a tentative flirtation with funk.
But even as it spawned a minor hit in metal circles with "Falling Away," tensions were building within the band, live reviews were mixed, and 1992's Visions EP marked the beginning of the end.

 Funkadelic Guitarist : Eddie Hazel..In Memorium@TheFunkStore.com
At the time, Hazel seemed a clear successor to the deceased Jimi Hendrix, one of the few fl guitar players merging an acid rock approach with an R&B aesthetic.
Furthermore, Hazel took things a step further, integrating a heavy dose of funk into his fiery guitar work as well, setting the precedent for successive Parliament/Funkadelic guitarists, as well as later generations of funk-metal guitarists.
Though born in Brooklyn on April 10, 1950, Eddie Hazel grew up outside the city in Plainfield, NJ, since his mother, Grace Cook, didn't want her son growing up in a negative, drug-littered environment (though, ironically, Plainfield wasn't much better in regards to drugs).

 Freaky Styley (Explicit) - Red Hot Chili Peppers - Pandora Internet Radio
The closest the Red Hot Chili Peppers ever came to straight funk, Freaky Styley is the quirkiest, loosest, and most playful album in their long and winding catalog.
The funk legend not only gives the Peppers the sort of warm and loose-limbed production that had graced many a Parliament/Funkadelic album over the years, but he also seemingly gives the band some serious inspiration.
For instance, a pair of covers of funk classics instantly stand out -- "If You Want Me to Stay" (Sly and the Family Stone) and "Africa" (the Meters), the latter retitled "Hollywood (Africa)" here -- and they're made all the more standouts with the addition of Maceo Parker and Fred Wesley on horns.

 The Last Outpost » Music » Funko-Metal Carpet Burns
The sound, the structure and sentiment of the song fit snugly into the heavy rock genre without anything sagging round the top of the tin, I soon realised this was not the case.
All in all the album is okay and after listening through their later offerings it is in my opinion the best of the bunch and worth slipping into your collection if only for ‘All Hips N’ Lips’.
I doubt whether it is worth the money to spend further though as there are many bands around that do this style of music much better and I have to wonder if the “neither solid rock nor true funk” feel to the album caused a lack of committed fans when they were new.

With their third album, 1988's Grammy-nominated and critically acclaimed Operation: Mindcrime-a concept opus born out of Reagan-era disilllusionment-Queensryche transcended the metal label and sealed their reputation for cerebral musci and heady lyrical vision.
