Temperature and Pressure.
Metamorphic rocks are formed proliths after undergoing increased temperature and pressure. The temperature affects the rock by recystallizing the minerals, dehydrating the minerals, and speeding chemical reactions. This temperature is caused by the depth of the rock and possibly magma. Increased pressure also recrystallizes minerals and speeds the rate of chemical reactions, but is able to fold/shape the rock itself.
