Out of these I would go with "helter skelter". Someone made a good point with the kinks. But as mentioned, sabbath's debut takes the cake. That's the first heavy metal album in my opinion. Sure, there were other heavy songs, but nothing like sabbath. There was definitely a difference. And their debut did come out in 69, so sabbath takes the cake for sure.

Nope. It came out in 1970.

Ah, I got that mixed up with the band forming in 69. It came out in Feburary of 70, close enough.

It might be close, but there has to be a cut-off point.

There was only a two month difference. But I know, it was still
1970. I wasn't being serious. It wouldn't have made the album any better if it came out two months before.

I pointed out the stats of it all. But from a musical perspective I agree with you. What Sabbath were putting out at that time, was more metal than any of the other contenders above.

Without a doubt. You take any one of these songs and then put on the title track of their first album and it'll just blow any of them away. Nobody before Sabbath was doing anything like that. I know a lot of people will say that Sabbath wasn't metal, I would disagree. They weren't just heavy blues rock, I've heard that and Sabbath sounds completely different.

I wasn't saying that Black Sabbath's material was better than the examples above, I was saying that they were really the first bona-fide metal band and had everything that people associate with metal. The other bands above were mostly playing a very loud blues rock, psychedelic or acid rock. Like most bands of the time, Sabbath had a noticeable blues slant but that was balanced out with the components crucial to metal at that time.

I wasnt saying that they were better, either. When I said "blow them away" I meant that they could blow any of those songs away with their darkness and heaviness.
