  The Canadian National Newspaper: Reflections on Heavy Metal Fashion
Heavy metal fashion is the style of dress, body modification, make-up, hairstyle, and so on, affected by many fans of heavy metal, or, as they are often called, metalheads.
The style and clothing of metal has absorbed elements from influences as diverse as the musical influences from which the genre has borrowed: modern metal fashion is a hotch-potch of punk, goth (particularly for female metalheads), Military Fashion and even various historical fashions.
Mainstream 'pop' fashion retailers have picked up what is accurately labelled as a cross between heavy metal fashion and skater fashion and are successfully marketing it under the labels 'goth' or 'rock' fashion.

Whereas a painting is experienced visually, while a symphony is an audible experience, a heavy metal band's "image" and the common theme that binds all their music is expressed in the artwork on the album, the set of the stage, the tone of the lyrics, and the sound of the music.
Ultimately, "pure" heavy metal would position itself at the periphery of pop culture, never quite at center, and metal denizens 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.
Glitter rock, a short-lived era in the mid-1970s, is the extreme exploration of the fantasy-side of the reality-fantasy parents of heavy metal.

Heavy metal fashion is the style of dress, body modification, make-up, hairstyle, and so on, taken on by many fans of heavy metal, or, as they are often called, metalheads.

The first seeds of heavy metal were sown in the British blues movement of the '60s, specifically among bands who found it hard to adjust to the natural swing of American blues.
For a brief spell during the mid-'80s, the heavy metal quintet Dio was one of the top U.S. concert attractions, boasting one of the most over-the-top stage acts of its time loaded with props and special effects (lasers, explosions, a giant dragon, etc.).
Ronnie James Dio honed his metal chops singing lead in both Rainbow and Black Sabbath, and his own band is sort of a reflection of both: the sinister, medievally gothic elegance of the former, and the crushingly heavy, doom-laden riffs of the latter.

 Heavy metal music
Heavy metal is a genre of rock music that emerged as a defined musical style in the 1970s, having its roots in hard rock bands which, between 1967 and 1974, mixed blues and rock to create a hybrid with a thick, heavy, guitar-and-drums-centered sound, characterised by the use of highly-amplified distortion.
Heavy metal themes are typically more grave than the generally airy pop from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s—focusing on war, nuclear annihilation, environmental issues, and political or religious propaganda.
He states that "...it [heavy metal] was a term originated in a New York Times article reviewing a Jimi Hendrix performance," and claims the author described the Jimi Hendrix Experience "...like listening to heavy metal falling from the sky." The precise source of this claim, however, has not been found and its accuracy is disputed.

 Heavy metal fashion attack - SpecialsEntFashionWeek2004SMH - www.smh.com.au
A gold cuff extended to become a gold-fringed metal dress, a jewelled choker became a cobweb-like top and a belt was transformed into a metallic miniskirt.
With many of the pieces taking weeks to make using traditional jewellery and metalworking processes, the show was more about capturing a fashion moment than selling a barely there brooch mini-dress.
On the last day of Fashion Week, the flock of fashionistas appeared to tire easily, a few bodies were conspicuously absent from the front row, the ensembles off the catwalk were starting to look comfortable rather than inspired, and the fashion buyers were getting weary.

 Heavy Metal 2000 (Soundtrack) by Frederic Talgorn
In a darker, cultish moment of the early 1980’s, the underground-comic magazine “Heavy Metal” broke away from the print medium to the silver screen.
The vignette format is abandoned in favor of a single, unifying storyline involving a bold heroine, (modeled after and featuring the voice of cult centerfold Julie Strain-Eastman) whose traits, in true “Heavy Metal” fashion, are chiefly represented by her large breasts and her ability to kick the crap out of everyone.
All artwork from Heavy Metal 2000 is exclusive property of (c) 2000.

 Modamag.com | Heavy Metal : Superbit (Movie Review)
It works more effectively as a feast for the senses, utilizing loud metal songs from the era’s hottest bands (along with Elmer Bernstein’s lush score) to back up the sequences, and filling these stories with heaps of nudity, sex, violence, and drugs.
Over the years, the cult for “Heavy Metal” has grown, resulting in years of midnight movie screenings and a failed attempt at a sequel in 2000 that didn’t even come close in capturing the spirit of the first film.
“Heavy Metal” is an acquired taste, but it is an original, thus deserving of at least one viewing for the uninitiated.

To me, Dog Fashion Disco is a heavy rock band with an affinity for releasing their musical quirks and out-of-the-ordinary metallic riffing in compact chunks.

- This movie wasn't made by Heavy Metal, but it is loosely based on the first two episodes of the popular story, "The Nikopol Trilogy" by Enki Bilal.
The first part, "The Immortals' Fete", was published in each issue from May to December 1981 of Heavy Metal.
Eugenics is sort of like plastic surgery, except more extreme; building synthetic flesh and virtual brains, either for esthetic, fashion, health, or convenience reasons.

Metallic fabrics replaced the beading that has been popular for several seasons, while distressed leathers, especially in military-inspired garments, looked modern and worn-in at the same time.
The other bold statement was her use of big, graphic Byzantine mosaic prints, mostly in an autumnal palette of brown, olive and orange with gold accents.
Some of her best looks were a high-neck asymmetrical coat in the Byzantine print with two jewels as fasteners, a lace-trimmed silk blouse and a stretch tissue metallic skirt, and an iridescent metallic coat that looked alternately burgundy and silver, which was worn over a blouson top in soft velvet and cigarette pants.

Though the co-pilot knows what the silence he hears over the plane's intercom means, he still goes back to check on the condition of the crew.
In true EC fashion, he is greeted by the horrifying blood spattered remains of his crew, rocking silently in death as the plane limps its way slowly back home.
Unfortunately, they are not alone, for he sees the plane is being pursued by a glowing green meteor, which rams the fuselage and enters the craft.

In 1992 as grunge, despair, and flannel shirts pushed the arena metal sound of the 80's into the realm of extreme un-coolness, ironically CAGE was born.
This was the case at the WACKEN and the METAL DAYZ as CAGE captured the imagination and attention of everyone in attendance.
Cage’s third album is by far their heaviest, darkest work to date, and is a textbook example of the pure essence of heavy metal: no shortage of speed, heaviness, or melody.

Metal bands like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Motörhead, Slayer, Black Sabbath and Megadeath were too far outside the mainstream to play on MTV.
However their hard-rocking sound influenced the next generation of death metal and industrial bands who loom large in today’s music scene.
