Groove metal playlist/ Groove metal (also known as post-thrash or neo-thrash) is a subgenre of heavy metal music.

Music journalists and fans have used groove metal to describe Pantera, Exhorder and Machine Head.

At its core, groove metal takes the intensity and sonic qualities of thrash metal and plays them at mid-tempo, with most bands making only occasional forays into a fast tempo.

Pantera’s Cowboys from Hell album from 1990 was described as “groundbreaking” and “blueprint-defining” for the groove metal genre.

King’s X has been called the progenitors of the genre and their 1988 debut album Out of the Silent Planet is often cited as one of the major influences for groove metal, with dropped open tuning and lower, even tempos.
