Thrash metal
A well-known subgenre, the bands that popularised thrash metal need no introduction: Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. The subgenre is fast and aggressive, with fast drum beats and guitar shredding.

Folk metal
An interesting subgenre, folk metal blends heavy metal and traditional folk music to produce an incredibly diverse genre. Examples of folk metal are Finland’s Korpiklaani and Scotland’s Alestorm.
