Program Notes

I love heavy metal, having grown up in the '80s and '90s. Many of my first music purchases were heavy metal bands. Iron Maiden, Metallica, Megadeath and many others all hold very special places in my memories of the time.

Metalheads is a piece for young band inspired by the rhythms, harmonies and style of heavy metal music. The driving pedal tones, the Phrygian mode, and the harmonies in 5ths are all intended to give a taste of this exciting musical style.

The Metalheads also serves as a play on words as the percussion parts consist of many metallic objects. Bells, vibraphone, brake drum, cymbals and two "metallic objects" (think pots, pans, anvils, whatever you can find) bring an industrial edge to this rockin' tune.
