WHO WERE THE PIONEERS OF METAL
Nameless chick: maiden was the pioneer
for british heavy metal
watch a documentary named
"metal:a head bangers journey"
by sam dunn
he actually proved logically
black sabbath were pioneers of metal
commanchedogsoldier: JIMI HENDRIX WAS ONE OF THE FIRST GUITARISTS TO MASTER THE USE OF DISTORTION AND USE IT TO HIS BENEFIT. YOU COULD SAY HE WAS THE PIONEER OF METAL. IN FACT THE FIRST EVER 200 WATT AMP THAT MARSHALL MADE WAS FOR HIM. (BECAUSE HE KEPT BLOWING ALL THE OTHERS THEY GAVE HIM!!!) AND AS FAR AS EXPERIMENTAL SOUNDS GO WELL THAT WOULD HAVE TO BE BO DIDLEY.
Seage08: Black Sabbath, they were the first band that had the word's Heavy Metal assocaited with them.
lutherrammstien: Iron Maiden,black sabbath,metallica then rob zombieand it just got heavyer form there
Monoxide_76: the pioneers could be considered to have been as early as hendrix. after all without their favofite influences our favorite bands may never have existed. there ya go epiphone lol. gone.
Masterhit242: sabbath were the godfathers,then metallica the fathers of modern metal and then the b*****d children came to be such as death,black,thrash and all that bollocks
Nameless chick: Actually,
sabbath were pioneers
They took inspiration from bands like cream
blonde501: I dont think there is any other band to date that captured the intensity and melody of doom metal and yes just like everybody elses pick on here BLACK SABBATH ladies and gentlemen,they still scare the bajesus out of me. lol
Nameless chick: i dont like Ozzy
esp after...........he insulted my 2nd fav band Iron maiden
but Tony Iommi is god
and he is the reason i respect sabbath
FerdinandBardamu: Without a doubt, Black Sabbath. Their self-titled first album set the stage for what was to come and by the time "Paranoid" was out a few months later, their songs were trademark metal riffs.
Judas Priest was the first band to really break away from the blues riffs and concentrating on heavy. "Sad Wings Of Destiny" is one of the landmark metal releases of all time.
Iron Maiden are number three in terms of being influential. They had a huge impact on future metal bands.
But it can be argued that Angus & Malcolm Young (although not technically metal) were heavy influences too.
MyNameIsMilk: no bruce dickinson said something about sharon osbourne at ozzfest but i am not saying iron maiden is bad i'm saying bruce has a HUGE ego and he says some shitty things
