A list of logos of different bands,in different genres...

The main sub-genres of metal are Heavy/Traditional, Speed/Thrash, Death, Black, Orchestrated/Symphonic, Power, Doom, Progressive, Gothic, Electronic, and Folk/Viking.

Then, you get your crossovers between one or more of these sub-genres, the most popular being Blackened Death Metal (Black and Death metal together), and Symphonic Power Metal.

Then new sub-genres come into play like Melodic Death Metal, which is a crossbreed of Death Metal and Power Metal, also with elements of Thrash Metal, but sound little like any of these original roots.    There are also many forms of "extreme" metal outside of the death and black sub-genres, such as Grindcore and Technical Death Metal.
