Heavy metal music, or just simply metal music, is a loud result of the combination of electric guitar, drums, bass, sometimes keyboards and of course vocals. A mass number of groups, others harder and others more melodic, inspired by the leading heavy metal bands of 1970s such as Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, developed many different kinds of metal music: gothic metal, industrial metal, epic metal, stoner metal, power metal, death metal, progressive metal, glam metal, black metal, thrash metal etc even christian metal. Despite its loud music and sometimes extreme vocals, heavy metal music is actually an inspired genre of rock music with great groups, melodies, lyrics and beautiful voices. Don't forget that some of the best ballads of all times belong to heavy metal bands.

The lyrics of heavy metal music vary according to the band and the kind of metal they play.

The Road Goes On Forever

Its so cold in the shadow of distant lights
And the chilling wind slows our pace and tests our will
Still a voice whispers it will be over soon
And there we find the courage to climb the hill

Sometimes I lose sight of where I'm going
Fanned by a flame I can't remember
But distant lights still burn bright
And the road goes on forever

Year after year with renewed ambition
We scale the walls to find there's nothing there
Still idle hands clutch the empty page
With the passion of a desperate prayer

Sometimes I lose sight of where I'm going
Fanned by a flame I can't remember

Master of the Wind

In the silence of the darkness when all are fast asleep
I live inside a dream calling to your spirit
As a sail calls the wind, hear the angels sing

Far beyond the sun across the western sky
Reach into the blackness find a silver line
In a voice I whisper a candle in the night
We'll carry all our dreams in a single beam of light

Close your eyes, look into the dream
Winds of change will winds of fortune bring

Fly away to a rainbow in the sky gold is at the end for each of us to find
There the road begins where another one will end

Angel - put sad wings around me now
Protect me from this world of sin
So that we can rise again

Oh angel - we can find our way somehow
Escaping from the world we're in
To a place where we began

And I know we'll find
A better place and peace of mind
Just tell me that it's all you want - for you and me
Angel won't you set me free

Angel remember how we'd chase the sun
Then reaching for the stars at night
As our lives had just begun

When I close my eyes I hear your velvet wings and cry
I'm waiting here with open arms - oh can't you see
Angel shine your light on me

Forever And One (Neverland)

What can I do?
Will I be getting through?
Now that I must try to leave it all behind
Did you see what you have done to me?
So hard to justify
Slowly it's passing by

Forever and one I will miss you
However, I kiss you yet again
Way down in Neverland
So hard I was trying
Tomorrow I'll still be crying
How could you hide your lies
Your lies

Here I am
Seeing you once again
My mind's so far away
My heart's so close to stay
Too proud to fight
I'm walking back into night
Will I ever find someone to believe?

Forever and one I will miss you
However, I kiss you yet again

A Tale That Wasn't Right

Here I stand all alone
Have my mind turned to stone
Have my heart filled up with ice
To avoid it's breakin' twice

Thank to you, my dear old friend
But you can't help, this is the end
Of a tale that wasn't right
I won't have no sleep tonight

In my heart, in my soul
I really hate to pay this toll
Should be strong, young and bold
But the only thing I feel is pain

It's alright, we'll stay friends
Trustin' in my confidence
And let's say it's just alright
You won't sleep alone tonight

With my heart, with my soul
Some guys cry you bought and sold

Hold on to My Heart

There's a flame, flame in my heart
And there's no rain, can put it out
And there's a flame, it's burning in my heart
And there's no rain, ooh can put it out
So just hold me, hold me, hold me

Take away the pain, inside my soul
And I'm afraid, so all alone
Take away the pain, that's burning in my soul
Cause I'm afraid that I'll be all alone
So just hold me, hold me, hold me

Hold on to my heart, to my heart, to me
Hold on to my heart, to my heart, to me
And oh no, don't let me go cause all I am
You hold in your hands, and hold me
And I'll make it through the night

The Idol

Will I be alone this morning
Will I need my friends
Something just to ease away the pain
And now I never see the loneliness
Behind my face
I am just a prisoner to my faith

If I could only stand and stare in the mirror could I see
One fallen hero with a face like me?
And if I scream, could anybody hear me?
If I smash the silence, you'll see what fame has done to me

Kiss away the pain and leave me lonely
I'll never know if love's a lie
Ooh - being crazy in paradise is easy
Do you see the prisoners in my eyes?

Where's the love to shelter me
Give me love, come set me free

Heaven's Hung in Black

I can’t take anymore
I have no more wings
I can’t take anymore
The gates of heaven sealed

Don’t you hear me
Don’t you hear me
Don’t you fear me
Of never coming back
Do you know what it’s like
When heaven’s hung in black

I can’t take anymore
Our walls are black and bleed
I can’t take anymore
No rooms here for your screams

Don’t you hear me
Don’t you hear me
Don’t you fear me
Of never coming back
Oh, no more tears please
Hanging heaven black

No don’t you leave me to die
Don’t you leave me to die
Don’t you leave me to die

The Trooper

You'll take my life but I'll take yours too
You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when you're waiting for the next attack
You'd better stand there's no turning back.

The Bugle sounds and the charge begins
But on this battlefield no one wins
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath
As I plunge on into certain death.

The horse he sweats with fear we break to run
The mighty roar of the Russian guns
And as we race towards the human wall
The screams of pain as my comrades fall.

We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
And the Russians fire another round

In This Shallow Grave

Who is your god – is he not mine?
Who is your devil – are we the same?
What makes you worse
What makes me better

Never to trust again – how long have I got?

In this darkened maze
They keep me away – they scream at night
Screams at night

Who is your master
In this shallow grave?

Born to die for a lie
I have no soul – I have no pride

Where is justice in this hell?
Where is liberty – I paid the price
My life blood runs dry
Slowly drained from me

Screams at night
…Alone is this shallow grave I die…
