Extreme metal emerged in the second half of the 1980s through three distinct musical genres with different principles, aesthetics and evolutions: grindcore, death metal and black metal. Like all underground cultures, extreme metal is not something that can simply be passed on: you have to experience it on your own. And so it appears that some artists, whose works have been deeply affected by it, started to get involved in the extreme metal scene at a time when they were far from imagining that one day their ideas would become works of art.
