Speed Metal is a subgenre of heavy metal music that originated in the early 1980s. It is characterized by fast tempos, aggressive guitar riffs, and complex song structures. It is often associated with thrash metal, but is more melodic and technical than thrash metal. Speed metal bands often use double-kick drumming and fast guitar solos, and the lyrics often focus on themes of violence, aggression, and rebellion.
