Today we’re talking about lyrics and metal music with the legendary Ira Timothy!


Patrick Donovan described Tool as “the thinking person’s metal band.”


“Jimmy” is featured on their album, Ænima.


Here’s a photo of Ira Timothy conducting an interview for his radio show, Hard Boiled!



Besides being one of the greatest influences on metal and rock music, Alice Cooper also hosts a radio show!



Metal bands cover a variety of styles, taking inspiration from everything from Celtic mythology to psychology to social issues.

Check out these metal and prog bands:  Stream of Passion, Dream Theater, Kamelot, MetallicaNightwish.


Don’t forget our Harmonica challenge: write a song that represents an underrepresented theme or feeling you think is missing from music today.
