Speed metal playlist/
Speed metal is a subgenre of heavy metal music that originated in the late 1970s from NWOBHM and hardcore punk roots. It is described by AllMusic as “extremely fast, abrasive, and technically demanding” music.

“It is usually considered less abrasive and more melodic than thrash metal, showing less influence from hardcore punk. However, speed metal is usually faster and more aggressive than traditional heavy metal, also showing more inclination to virtuoso soloing and featuring short instrumental passages between couplets. Speed metal songs frequently make use of highly expressive vocals, but are usually less likely to employ ‘harsh’ vocals than thrash metal songs”1En.wikipedia.org. (2018). Speed metal.
