Default The Original Heavy Metal Pioneers

Let's talk about the original hard rock groups that played a big role on the influence of heavy metal. You know, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper, Uriah Heep, Scorpions, etc. The earliest of the early. Proto-metal. The Pioneers. Let's talk about how it went on to influence all metal. That's what this whole thread is for.

So, I'll start a topic.who do you say is the first band to really start the sound? I'd say Led Zeppelin for their 1969 albums I & II. And if Immigrant SOng from III ain't heavy metal...

Not hard rock but stuff if it weren't for stuff like this, metal wouldn't have come about.



Another good answer would be The Stooges' Funhouse for popularizing that brand of chaos.

Possibly. I don't see the majority of it popularizing "heavy metal," but maybe other kinds of metal? I can see more orchestral and dramatic kinds.

I'm lowkey super into ptoto-metal.

Some relatively unknown and underrated stuff



Not that unknown but a great album



If you'd call them proto metal, although they're right there on the cusp, Deep Purple is the best. Just a rocking and shredding album here

Proto-metal was intended to be a joke, really.

All great stuff. Cream and Hendrix kinda set the table. LZ1 was truly the first heavy metal album IMO. I mean, come on? This is January of 1969.

That's 47 ****ing years ago!

... The joke was that proto-metal isn't a common term, let alone enough to qualify as a popular descriptor like "proto-punk."

Weird, I'm the first person I've ever known who's used it. I guess I'm wrong.
