What is the spanish term for heavy metal music?



“rock pesado” is how it is referred to here in Mexico.

In the late '80s/ early '90s, in Spain, the folks who wore black jeans and had big hair and listened to Metallica and the Scorpions were called “heavy.” Pronounced like the English word, but with a Spanish accent. What they listened to was “musica heavy” or “rock heavy.”

simply “metal” (with enfasis in -al)
