#美国音乐 #- 重金属/摇滚:一个更加非传统的音乐风格


重金属来源于人们比较熟悉的摇滚和蓝调风格。1970年,英国摇滚乐队黑色安息日 在其第一首单曲“铁人”中加入了噪音鼓和令人屏息的即兴吉他演奏。随后,该风格迅速传遍美国西海岸,在那里像Metallica和Megadeath这样的“打击乐队”助力该流派得以广泛流行。


20世纪90年代,烟雨连绵的西雅图成为非嫡传的重金属和朋克的发源地,这些成为后来广为人知的垃圾摇滚(grunge)。


尽管Nirvana 乐队的“少年心气”富于想象,Pearl Jam乐队则取得了良好的销量, 而当时这一景象中最经久不衰的乐队可以说是Soundgarden乐队。该乐队最初成立于1984年,随着上世纪90年代初西雅图音乐景象的出现而脱颖而出。他们1994年的专辑Superunknown为Soundgarden乐队在主流音乐界赢得了的成功,其中的一首“黑洞太阳”赢得了1995年格莱美奖的“最佳硬摇滚表演奖”。

#AmericanMusic – Heavy Metal/Grunge: One of the more unconventional musical genres, Heavy Metal came from more familiar styles of rock & roll and blues. In 1970, British rock band Black Sabbath included crashing drums and aggressive guitar riffs in its first song “Iron Man.” The genre quickly spread to the U.S. west coast, where “thrash bands” like Metallica and Megadeath popularized the genre.


In the 1990s, rainy Seattle was the birthplace of the illegitimate offspring of heavy metal and punk the world came to know as grunge.  


While Nirvana “Smells Like Teen Spirit” captured imaginations and Pearl Jam captured sales, the scene's most enduring band was arguably Soundgarden.  Originally formed in 1984, the band rose to prominence with the advent of the Seattle "scene" in the early 1990s.  Their 1994 album Superunknown won Soundgarden mainstream success, with the song "Black Hole Sun" winning a 1995 Grammy award for "Best Hard Rock Performance."
