Groove metal

Groove metal (also known as post-thrash[2] or neo-thrash) is a subgenre of heavy metal music. Music journalists and fans have used groove metal to describe Pantera,[5] Exhorder and Machine Head.[6] 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 fast tempo.[7]

Characteristics and origins

Pantera's Cowboys from Hell album from 1990 was described as "groundbreaking" and "blueprint-defining" for the groove metal genre.[8] 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. Ian Christe credits Sepultura's Chaos A.D. and Pantera for creating the death metal–derived music of groove metal influencing later groups in the genre during the 1990s.[3] Exhorder's debut Slaughter in the Vatican is also considered one of the first groove metal albums, having been released in 1990, the same year as Cowboys. Groove metal bands have incorporated thrash metal,[1] and crossover thrash. Tommy Victor of Prong claims that the attitude of groove metal came from Bad Brains.[9]
