Sebastian Bach(Skid row):"Heavy metal is pushing your life to the maximum. Pushing it as hard as you can fucking get it onto the edge of chaos"
Bruce Dickinson(Iron Maiden):"Heavy metal music has become an essential catharsis, some rights of passage. Metal is like a celebration of community and friendship for people who simply have a genetic or emotional predispostion to gravitate towards that kind of music, that kind of aggression. You know the aggressionis there but it's contained and it's controlled and it's focused."
4. New Wave of British Heavy Metal
Sam Dunn(Director):"Were the metal and punk fans coexisting peacefully or was there actually real conflict there?" “金属粉和朋克粉都能和平共处吗还是他们之间真的有爆出冲突？”
Rat Scabies(The damned):"Must be like two snarling dogs in a cage, you know, they'll look at each other, they'll size each other up. And then after a while they kind of back down and get used to each other being there and then it's 'Well maybe his butt doesn't sniff so bad after all.'" “那感觉肯定是像关了两只疯狗在一个笼子里啊，它们互相看着对方，打量着对方，然后过一阵子等它们冷静下来习惯了彼此的存在，就会‘啊，说不定它的屁股闻起来也没有那么臭嘛’”
John Gallagher(Raven):"You get denim jacket or your vest, and all your favourite bands were embroidered on the back. And your mother wouldn't do it, so you had to learn to sew. All the heavy metal fans were great with a needle and thread."
5. Glam Rock
Sam Dunn:"Do you think people are here for the nostalgia to relief that time or why do you think people are here?" “为什么你觉得人们到这来？是为了怀念过去的华丽金属岁月吗？”
(A woman)"Hot guys, long hair, rock n' roll metal. It's fine and foul. He's 45 and I still love him." “因为有帅哥、长发和摇滚明星啊。非常棒非常疯狂。他45岁了，我还是那么爱他。”
(Men)"-Even though we move on with our lives. -He's been stay with us." “- 即使生活还是继续，华丽金属成为过去。- 他们还是和我们在一起。”
Erik Turner(Warrant):"That's easier to die off, it's just stick around and fight it out and be tenacious and not give up, and just be like glad for punishment. "
Jerry Dixon(Warrant):"Quitting was just never an option. I just said: Oh, shoot me in the head. I can't take it."
6. Thrash Metal
Brandon Geist(Revolver Magazine):"One of the hugest things I think about Thrash metal and the cross with Punk and Hardcore is the way that the vibe of the metal show changed. Thrash was the win metal discovered moshing basically and discovered stage diving. In a Slayer's show, it was like being caught in the prison. Before you go toa metal show, you might be like headbanging, maybe raise your fists, flash the horns. But you know Thrash show, first thing of the Thrash show is if you're wearing this(glasses), leave it at home, coz it's certainly broken."
Dave Lombardo(Slayer):"The record company did come up to us and discussing what they want us to do. But it didn't set well with the guys in the band, with all of us. We wouldn't go with it, we don't wanna change. We are who we are, this is the way we play,this is the style of songs we'd like to write. If you gonna tell us to do other, you know, we gonna tell you to fuck off."
Gary Holt(Exodus):"I know Lars mentioned years ago, and I think he referenced us, about pining ourselves in a coner, have nowhere to go. That's why Metallica became the Rock n Roll. But if's I'm in my coner, I like my coner. It's cool, more than anywhere else."
Lars Ulrich(Metallica):"The Thrash stuff and the harder metal stuff survive beacuse when you're fortunate enough not to be part of anything that is too fashionable, and have the opportunity to stick around. As all the other fashions and things fade away, it's the last man standing."
7. Grunge Rock
Michael Azerrad(Journalist):"This idea that you could be manly, and sensitive and introspective, and even tortured, was a fairly new thing in the '90s, because hard rock and metal is supposed to be the king of the world, and the ruler of all known planets."
8. Nu Metal
Tom Morello(Rage against the machine):"This music kinda started with the idea of making powerful music that had message that was about integrity and unity and this kind of solidarity between the band and the crowd. And it became like, you know, a bunch of thugs, raping women in the pit and then burning the festival to the ground. We popularized the genre which now has just totally run-a-bunk. I just thought, man, this is like, what have we done?"
Fred Durst(Limp Bizkit):"Well, I don't know how many people still use the term, but I'm extremely proud to be part of the nu metal movement, and I'm proud of everything that we have accompished and everything we've fucked up."
9. Shock Rock
King Diamond(Mercyful Fate):"For me, Satanism is not a religion. It's a life philosophy. It's never been just an image,I mean... It's totally part of me, King Diamond and Kim Petersen"
Daisy Berkowitz(Marilyn Manson):"God culture was very big in the early 90s because kids that like the music stayed inside and they were the outside kids, they were the kids who didn't have the clubs. And Marilyn Manson feels like all the clubhouse vibe.You know I get it. I know what's going on. And you get it too. And we are laughing at people who think it's aweful and terrible cuz they don't get it. So there was a stronger following that was like a cycle following"
Clown(Slipknot):"Because we are the product of the society. We represent kids that don't have back turned to them forever. I came up with the term maggots. Our kids are like maggots. They are feeling all from disguisting way of thinking, our violent nature, but it goes deeper than that. If you know anything about a maggot, you know that a maggot turns into a fly. And the fly got wings. It can leave the death and fly anywhere it wants, to a place of beauty, to a place of peace. I'm trying to give you a revelation. I'm trying to make a pip grow up in your head. This is selfvation to the pain that we have and that's what I've been trying to do the whole time was to find my own selvation to my own anger."
11. Progressive Metal
Ben Weinman(Dillinger Escape Plan):"Well Dillinger itself was us giving up on being musicians for a living. It was us giving up on caring what people thought. We really stopped trying to appeal to a market or a certain fan base. It was really us saying 'We are never going to fit in. We are never gonna be musicians for a living.' So it was really one situation for someone who's just doing something they love. And it happens to work out because they love it. It's a perfect example of that."
"Not only that we make things hard for ourselves, physically, technically, however you wanna put it, but we are making things challenging and difficult and uncomfortable for the people who are experiencing as well. We want to take people out of their comfort zone. We want to take ourselves out of comfort zone coz no great art ever comes from comfort."
Sam Dunn:"Whether it's metal's new emerging bands or the legengs of the genre, it's the same commitment to pushing boundaries and the spirit one-upmanship that drives heavy metal as a whole. And so it's evident to me that heavy metal will remain relevant and will continue to evolve for decades to come."
12. Extreme Metal
Joe Duplantier(Gojira):"Basically what I'm saying in my lyrics a lot is that we are nature. Nature is not just something outside of ourselves, I mean, everything is nature. This microphone is nature. This house is nature. We are connected to each other by this universe."
"I think the music is growing with the society. It's a hard, brutal world we live in. Communication, interaction, medias, everything is so intense and crushing. The faster the society goes, the faster the music goes. At the same time we want to calm things down and we want to be more simple. We don't need to use gore, or to put a lot of blood in our video and stuff like that because life is brutal enough."
