Alt Metal Music

As heavy metal split off into microgenres in the '90s, many bands reacted against Grunge's sloppiness by crafting fast, concise songs driven by an industrial-strength beat, replacing sludgy chords with tight, percussive riffs and an overdriven sound. Growling vocals shared grunge's DNA, and bands like Alice in Chains flitted between the two styles.
