    Polyphonic had a good vid on the evolution of Metal

    Beatles' Helter Skelter seemed originated the controlled chaos style of "heavy sound" that transposed to Metal.

    Paul responded to The Who's Pete Townsend challenge that he's gonna write the "heaviest sound" to date

    i thought Astro Creep 2000 is way better than La Sexocisto

    it encapsulate the whole "funky metal" that White Zombie is famous for

    Others paved the way with certain techniques, like Ritchie's "Hard loving man" being the origin of the metal gallopp, but Sabbath had it all.

    Iommi already got lazy during the Dio period. He's the better singer, but the material was way weaker. Actually dig among Dio's bands I dig Elf and Rainbow the most.

    Check that link out. Pretty cool history.


    Everyone talks about the "Trinity", but you have to include groups like Jimi and Rush in there as well.

    Metal is such a diverse genre, you got sludge-stoner doom metal which is really really simple all the way to hyper technical progressive metal where the musicianship is literally on par with any guitar player, drummer, bassist, etc. to have ever played. A lot of true virtuosos gravitate towards classical, jazz, and metal of all things, and there is a reason why.

    You just can't lump it all into one field. Iron Maiden sounds nothing like GnR who sounds nothing like Meshuggah who sounds nothing like pantera, etc.
    It's crazy how in 2019 people still lump metal into one genre.
    Like you said rings of Saturn, shadow of intent, angelmaker, Lorna shore. All these tech death namda literally can play at light speed and they would just get lumped in with ****ing Pantera

    I realized when I was 14 years old that mainstream radio music is lyrically and especially musically garbage in comparison to music that you have to dig a little deeper for

    The trinity, I guess Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, and Hendrix are with the exception of Black Sabbath protometal. Black Sabbath is the band were most music jounalists, historians and musicians can put their finger on and say they're the first, who definately were heavy metal.

    Rush' debut album is from 1974.

    Playing music at light speed doesn't make it good. It's mostly jerking your instrument off when you play that way. You scoff at Pantera, but they're better. Less technical, but much more musical.

    Also it doesn't imply that it's all the same to say that most of it sucks.

    And congrats on saying something that every 14yo who is exposed to music would say. I'm sure your understanding of musical and lyrical quality at 14 was very sophisticated.

    Does anyone else find it interesting how many metal bands seem obsessed with Saturn? Why that planet, specifically?

    An album from the same year as Sabbath’s debut/Paranoid that is heavy as fk and kicks ass is Lucifer’s Friend - Lucifer’s Friend. Underrated band with John Lawton on vocals who was in Uriah Heep at one point. I feel it doesn’t get talked about enough, but it was very heavy for 1970. Also Led Zeppelin ripped off LF’s Ride In The Sky with Immigrant Song.

    If you want to go down that route, I think influences can be noticed in the Kinks (first band to use power chords primarily over triads), Cream (first band I'm aware of who really focused on showcasing the soloing and skills of the individual musicians), and perhaps even the velvet underground for their dark and controversial topics. None of these are metal, but like you said, neither was Zeppelin.

    Awesome album, but they changed their sound too often. I guess that's the reason for them being mostly unknown.

    Of course. Influences of later metal can be tracked to Bach, Paganini and the likes. That's why "definately" is so important.

    The development section of the first movement of Eroica by Beethoven is pretty f*cking metal when you give it an honest listen. Bach was technical but Beethoven was actually heavy.

    Yeah, if we get to later composers there's alot of heavy stuff to be found. I just took two baroque names as I feel they're first to have an influence on metal. Beethoven's 7th is superb metal.

    But imo the Dies Irae section of Verdi's Requiem is the heaviest most dense piece of music ever bar none. Not even a close second.

    First time I'm hearing that piece. Romantic era composers were pretty badass.

    I still think Eroica was the "first" in a way. Can you think of anything before that symphony which brought that distinct heaviness? I think it's no coincidence this was the first thing Beethoven wrote after coming to terms with his impending hearing loss and the famous "I will seize fate by the throat." Chills.
