The Metal Dictionary

The Metal Dictionary has finally been published to the site! It is intended to be a one-stop source for definitions of all things metal, although without getting too far into the technical aspects of musicianship.

I recognize that the entries are not complete, and that new definitions will have to be added. Since the dictionary itself does not allow comments, please add your suggestions as a comment on this post. Here are the guidelines:

1. suggest anything which should be added to the dictionary, or changed from the dictionary--you don't have to be specific

2. if you would like to provide an actual definition of a term, please also state
a. how you would like to be credited (what name you want to use), and
b. your web site address, if any


  1. This comment has been removed by the author.

  2. The suggestions that occur to me are:

    German thrash metal (since the Bay area got its own entry).

    Hellenic black metal (Greek black metal scene).

    Tribal metal (folk metal sub-genre drawing from traditional Native American music).

  3. I suppose you could include Les Légions Noires (aka The Black Legions) as the best known French black metal scene.
