Alternative Metal is a modern modification of Metal. Back in the 90's, Alternative Metal was a term to describe the mixture between Crossover, Metal and other kinds of music used by many bands to contrast strongly from the metal stereotypes. The great difference among the bands within the Alternative Metal scene is outstandingly obvious. As well as Rap Metal, Grunge, Post-Hardcore, Industrial, bands from other kinds of music which can not be directly classified are counted Alternative Metal. Alternative Metal is therefore a hypernym for all those kinds which do not align with traditional and established Metal and which are influenced by other musical genres at the same time.
