What is Funk Metal Music?
Funk Metal Music is a mixture between heavy metal music and funk. It really evolved during the mid 1980’s with alternative bands, the likes of Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Faith No More who started to play music which had more funky undertones than metal really, although many funk metal bands which followed had more metal than funk. It was, however, a great way to show off your musical prowess.
Representative Funk Metal Musicians
Funk Metal Musicians include, as I’ve already said, bands such as the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Faith No More (who incidentally were also known for their rap metal styles – gets confusing doesn’t it?) Another well known funk metal band was Fishbone.
