Beginning in the 1980’s, Heavy Metal started to have a gradual increase in its popularity, as the New Wave Of American Heavy Metal (NWOAHM) had begun. Recently, the NWOAHM has become even more successful, as many people listen to Heavy Metal at the present time. In the previous decade, alterations to Heavy Metal have emerged, such as Alternative Metal, which is a fusion of Alternative Rock and Heavy Metal, and Nu-Metal, which is a fusion of Rap and Heavy Metal. Even more recently, Metalcore, which is a mixture of extreme metal and hardcore punk has emerged onto the heavy metal scene.
