Doom metal is a form of Heavy metal that emerged as a recognized metal sub-genre in the early/mid-1980s. Doom metal is heavier and slower than other metal genres. Lyrics play a very important role in this genre, and are traditionally rife with pessimism, evoking an atmosphere of darkness, despair and misery. Musically, doom metal is strongly influenced by the early work of Black Sabbath.

Glam metal is a sub-genre of Heavy metal music that arose in the late 1970s - early 1980s in the Untited States. It was a dominant genre in popular Rock music throughout the 1980s and early 1990s (1983-1992). The genre is also referred to, often by detractors, as hair metal. This term was popularized by MTV in the 1990s and derives from the tendency amongst most bands to style their long hair in a teased-up fashion. During its heyday, the genre was often referred to as heavy metal or simply metal.

Gothic metal is a genre of Heavy metal music that originated during the mid 1990s in Europe as an outgrowth of doom - death, a fusion genre of doom metal and Death metal.

The definition of Gothic metal is commonly debated amongst fans and the media; older fans and musicians have a specific concept of the Gothic genre, based on the Gothic novel and aesthetic similarities to Gothic rock. Some less knowledgeable fans reject these criteria and refer to any female fronted metal band as Gothic.
