Who do you think is/was the most influential metal band?

And why?

What/who did they influence?

It needn't be a band from years ago. It could be a newer band too...

No right or wrong, just explain your reasoning so we may understand your point of view.

For me it was Faith No More. Many metal bands credit them.

Taken from wikipedia.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
Faith No More has been credited for influencing many of the nu metal bands of the '90s[13] (such as Limp Bizkit, Korn, Linkin Park, Incubus, among others) primarily due to "Epic"'s popularity and its rap and rock crossover. Bands rising at their prime, such as Metallica, Anthrax[14] and Guns N' Roses,[15] have picked Faith No More as one of their favorite bands. They were voted #52 on VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock".[16]

Faith No More also became underground and alternative superstars and have also been covered on many occasions. "From Out of Nowhere" was covered by Helloween on their covers album Metal Jukebox, by Apocalyptica on Inquisition Symphony and by Catamenia on VIII - The Time Unchained. Between the Buried and Me covered "Malpractice" on The Anatomy Of and Atreyu covered "Epic" in 2008, as a bonus track on Lead Sails Paper Anchor. Their song "Midlife Crisis" has been covered by the band Disturbed and was originally going to be put on a Faith No More tribute album, but it was eventually released on the internet instead. They also re-recorded the song as a B-side track to their new album Indestructible, but it has yet to see release. Ill Niño covered Zombie Eaters on their The Under Cover Sessions EP . "Mouth to Mouth" has been covered as well by the band Tub Ring on their Book of Water album.

In 2008 Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab released Angel Dust on CD and LP, remastered from the original master tapes.

Sabbath. Metal as we know it today would not exist if they didn't exist.

Iommi's use of half tones in his riffs, mixed with aeolian/minor pentatonic solos - influenced every metal player directly or indirectly whether they know it or not.

Maybe too a point.. There are too many new styles out there.

I have a hard time accepting Sabbath in this role as well. Which is one reason I posed the question.

To me, Sabbath sparked the idea of metal. Then Judas Priest quickly grabbed it and RAN! Influencing bands throughout the upcoming years.

Ok,

Carcass - Mixing death and grind core - amazing solos, brutal vocals, and AMAZING GUITAR HARMONYS! They really pushed the limit of what metal is and could be I think.

Morbid Angel - Most bands in 1987 were putting hair spray in - This is what they were doing:


Pretty crazy - just insanely dark and heavy.

Pantera, they added that southern groove to metal. Dimebag had the deepest love of guitar and it showed in all his music. Even when he was Diamond Darrell in Pantera's earliest incarnations the solos and rhythm work was out of this world!

Bloodbath - Personally I think this is the most bad ass Death metal out there - I know there is really 'crazier' death metal out there, and Bloodbath doesn't have that 'insanity' factor (which to me, makes death metal cheesy just like black metal with their lame KISS makeup haha)- but this s*** is just BAD A**.



Here's a bloodbath tune with Mickael Akerfeldt from Opeth on vocals: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znQ7NK8YIF4&NR=1

EVILE - modern thrash that goes back to the roots and adds something new... I don't know about anyone but they influenced me smile.gif



Is that unorthodox enough for you Opeth? wink.gif

I'm going to say as an older band(and still today) megadeth

Dave Mustane getting kicked out of Metallica and then taking over the world with megadeth can show anyone hhow a little hard work and dedication can get you to go where you want to be.

I think in modern times bands like Bullet for my Valentine personally inspire the newer gen. like myself to go out there and pick up a guitar and play so music. laugh.gif

I love megadeth, like my own child!
But, anyway, Shai hulud. (i know, their hardcore, not metal, but they have progressive metal elements) They pretty much created metalcore, and they get NO respect.

Edit: im changing my post because i dont like how it sounds...came out sounding worse than i meant it

to me, i could list my favorite bands (dreamtheater, symphony x, iron maiden)

and say they were the most influencial,


but that wouldnt be right


we all owe metal to sabbath and zeppelin (even though i dont care much for either...except for heaven and hell), and the others who came after influenced certain genres more than an entire genre....i say this because people now split up metal in to so many sub genres....its annoying to try to name them all...

i would go with Bathory on this one. There sound is the textbook sound of Black Metal back in there early years in the 80's. They also took the lyrics into a whole new level of blasphemous. No one in the 80's had a more evil sounding tone and ambience than Bathory. Then, Quorthon changed his beliefs, and turned Bathory into the very first Viking Metal band with the album Blood, Fire, Death in 88.

Thats pretty revolutionary right? 1 band influencing 2 different sounds thats still adapted all throughout the years.

In terms of Influence, SHEER INFLUENCE, Black Sabbath. It's impossible to pick up a guitar today and not be in some way influenced by their music if you want to play any kind of distorted rock. I realize that they're the textbook answer, but it's because of the truth of it.

It was about 15 and more years ago when I was going crazy for bands like Iron Maiden, Metallica, Sepultura, Slayer and similar. Great times.
