Heavy metal music, or just simply metal music, is a loud result of the combination of electric guitar, drums, bass, sometimes keyboards and of course vocals. A mass number of groups, others harder and others more melodic, inspired by the leading heavy metal bands of 1970s such as Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, developed many different kinds of metal music: gothic metal, industrial metal, epic metal, stoner metal, power metal, death metal, progressive metal, glam metal, black metal, thrash metal etc even christian metal. Despite its loud music and sometimes extreme vocals, heavy metal music is actually an inspired genre of rock music with great groups, melodies, lyrics and beautiful voices. Don't forget that some of the best ballads of all times belong to heavy metal bands.

Sanctuary - Refuge Denied (1987)

Damn pity that Sanctuary got to release only two albums, cause they were amazing. I like Nevermore too, but you can tell the difference. "Refuge Denied" was the first studio album of Sanctuary released in 1987. The songs in "Refuge Denied" don't seem to have so much political and social lyrics, as the next (and last) album of Sanctuary "Into the Mirror Black", and Nevermore's albums. In "Refuge Denied" there is a kick-ass cover of Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit". Loved the "Veil of Disguise".
