Metal Lovers psychologists have continued to explore more deeply. It was found that these adolescents loud and aggressive music effectively relieves stress, eliminates the frustration and anger, brighten the mood. "The gifted students to think as fans of classical music, conducting much time for books. I think it is - an inaccurate stereotype.

"We are talking about a group of self-esteem lower than average. They are gifted people may feel more stress and resorted to heavy metal as a way to relieve tension.
