Headbanger #1: Wha-? What's that sound!?A musical genre originating in the 1960s and '70s, influenced by Blues and Psychedelic Rock, emphasizing heavy, powerful sound with distorted guitars and (sometimes) extended solos. Famous for Heavy Metal Umlauts, as well as MetalHeads having huge online arguments about which bands are and aren't metal, or music in general. Not to be confused with Metallic Tropes (although this genre was named after the term for metallic elements with high proton counts).
Headbanger #2: It's like an angel singing...
Headbanger #3: A devil screaming!
Headbanger #2: It is the pounding of Creation's Hammer upon the Anvil of Time!
