I agree it was a big movement with so many artists like Atomic Rooster and The Crazy World of Arthur Brown.


Heck in many ways the guitar sound started July 1st 1961 when Dick Dale started at the Rendezvous Ballroom.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Dick_Dale_-_Misirlou.ogg

 

 

 

 

 

This was 1971...........................

The history of our beloved music is extremely dense, and open to interpretation and debate.  The only thing I don't like about the history is discussing it: some metal heads are extremely opinionated and dense, and just plain not-fun to discuss things with.  Think extreme comic-book collectors, who can be so obnoxious I gave my collection away a couple years ago because I just could not stomach dealing with it any more.  Hence, my tongue-in-cheek response.

 

My mind does not agree with 1971, but my heart does, if that makes sense.  Master of Reality really did change things from Sabbath being a curiosity that made a lot of money, to a force that pretty much created the underground scene.  I do consider it the birth of Doom for a lot of reasons.  Paranoid certainly brought the lyrical content, but MOR was fricking HEAVY by any standard, and along with Volume 4 is one of the most-listened to albums I have, and after 48 years I still listen to it on a regular basis.

 

I think the evolution of metal is personal for most of us, and our perspective is formed from what we listened to at what time, and what branch of the tree caught our attention.  I am of the Blue Cheer/Iron Butterfly/Vanilla Fudge tradition, because that's what I was in to (although I do not consider them 'metal')

 

Uriah Heep barely gets any love in the history books or articles, but man I swear 'eavy, 'humble is a blueprint for early.progressive metal.

 

"

I can see that look that sends me where
You try to move in closer if you dare
So I will sit and play my waiting game
And for a while I know she'll do the same

fly away

Watches like an eagle from its tree
Then like a bird of prey she captures me
But I am older and more wise than you
Bird of prey, straight into me, you fool

fly away

Now every time I try to set her free
I'm glad to say she comes right back to me
But if I knew she didn't want to stay
I wouldn't try to keep that lovely bird of prey


          

 

And I can't forget "Gypsy" off the same album!

Redcar or Swipers, have you ever considered writing a book? something along the lines of:

 

http://www.amazon.com/Encyclopedia-Heavy-Metal-Daniel-Bukszpan/dp/0760742189/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1416660481&sr=1-2&keywords=the+encyclopedia+of+heavy+metal

 

 

In 2003, I bought this in 2003 when I felt enchanted by the likes of Creed and Lincoln Park I was hearing on the radio. I largely left metal when I was just into my 30's. I flirted with jazz and indie rock-still do-but I've always had a metal heart.

 

I got married at 29, was in L.A. pursuing an acting career. I was married and had a baby at 34. No one around me listened to metal. Actor types are not headbangers as a rule.

 

In 2,000 I moved to Maryland to be closer to family and teach. In `03 I felt something missing. In my late 30's, I started buying some CDs of old favorites-classic Priest, Maiden, Motorhead, newer albums by the big 4 and I bought this book. I decided, well if Lemmy is still playing, I can still listen to heavy music. I started with stoner rock and doom and moved way deeper and deeper into the pit.

 

It was like I woke up and discovered the internet with all kinds of resources. A book like this can change someone's life. Now, a year from 50, I listen to more metal than I did when I was 30. I just don't care anymore. I like this kind of music:evil:

Heck, we should all collaborate on a book: "The Headfiers Guide to Heavy Metal"  We could each write a chapter about the music and our relationship with various speakers/headphones and stuff.  Make a monthly installment like the "Schiit Happened" thread, and then publish it on line.  All of the different perspectives of history and the music, and the gear...
