Many purists will disagree.... But I think Metallica's "Enter Sandman" is one of the greatest metal songs ever.....and I've pretty much heard it all!

I love AC/DC and Pink Floyd but don't consider either of them to be metal......
By definition. .....metal is a form of music without a blues inspired background which they both have.

By that definition. ...Judas priest was the very first true metal band as none of their music has ANY blues influence.

MC5 were getting pretty heavy by the late 60's. Kick out the Jams was 69. Black Sabbath Black Sabbath was '70, and Judas Priest's first album was released in 74. Obviously there was a movement in England, but priest and sabbath hit the big time, but MC5 were the americas.

Sabbath started with blues/rock ad roll as the Polka Tulk Blues Band. And mc5 became heavy with that direction of rock evolution, so although Judas Priest did form after the other 2, you might be right in saying they were formed as a Metal Group.

Black Sabbath Black Sabbath predated Priest's Rolla Rolla though... and MC5 was thrashin' it before either were even formed... but this branch of the rock genre is still steeped in the blues, and emerged as a branch of 60's prog rock. Led Zep were big into the blues and sang blues songs - formed in '68.

Mc5 formed in 64, Sabbath in 68 - so did deep purple and led zep - and J.Priest in 69. Purple's first release was in '68... but it was more like a prog rock album. Made in Japan came out in '71.

P.S. AC/DC identify themselves as a rock group - but are adored by metal heads.

Some even say the roots of metal music go back to Wagner of the 19th century.

Gem......I'd would absolutely agree with you that the very concept of what we consider "metel" goes all the way back to Wagner.

I'd also agree that early groups like MC5, Sabath and the rest were hard rockers.....but they had blues influences. .....Judas priest to my mind is the first definitive metal band.

For instsnce...in an era when the electric light bulb hadnt even been invented much less amplifiers. .. Wagner used to load up his orchestra with double the amount of bass instruments including having somthing known as the octa-bass built that was so big it required two musicians to play it because he wanted a big powerful sound.

Another 18th century composer named Franz Liszt was so popular with young people that he would be stormed at his concerts very much like the Beatles were in the early 1960's....and had a following of young woman throwing themselves at him like modern day groupies.

Franz Liszt was very much the worlds first rock star!!!

That said, Judas priest were stemming from prog rock with Rokka Rolla (which obviously references rock and roll). It was every bit a prog rock album, and prog rock in turn stems back to blues riffs and and lead solos. No matter which way you cut it, Metal is rock music, which is a variety of genres that evolved along different branches from its roots Black American slave songs.

I've been a Uriah Heep fan all my life - the original line up with the charismatic David Byron.

This is one of my favourites - The Wizard. This was played at my dad's funeral.

Sorry for forsaking my own thread, nice to all meet you here. Lately I am a lot into Manowar and they're my favorite band. Good to know not everyone here is only into Enya and New Age stuff lol.
