Batman Posted May 2, 2005 Report Share Posted May 2, 2005 Most people would say that Black Sabbath created heavy metal as we know it. But do you think that another band may have created it? Sorry for the lack of poll options, I just put up the 4 common names associated with heavy metal. As for me, I think that Black Sabbath really did create metal. Sure, the three other bands listed had heavy sound, but Black Sabbath was the first band to make a sound that was heavy and scary. Scary is the key word. A lot of what was called metal in the eighties wasn't really metal. Scary bands like Iron Maiden were 80's metal, but bands like Def Lepperd were too pop and not enough scary to be metal. Scariness is the essence of heavy metal. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
