You don't have to take me serious guys but the first ever metal band I've listened to was actually Dream Theater. Other than that: Iron Maiden & Megadeth

(Recently TOOL+Cynic)

But I also have to admit the Black Sabbath issue... cool.gif

Of course Black Sabbath. They "invented" metal tongue.gif

But also the following bands (me thinks).

Iron Maiden, Metallica (I'm not a big fan but they will be leaving a huge footstep on the music industry when they leave), Stratovarius (practically created powermetal), Judas Priest, Manowar, Yngwie Malmsteen, Slayer and Pantera. (would trash metal exist without them?)

I would say Metallica and Iron Maiden. But I would like to add Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force... I could name too many bands, guitar players, keyboard players, singers & composers that has been influenced by Malmsteen and his solo band.

Stratovarius (practically created powermetal),


I think that Helloween (and maybe Blind Guardian & Heaven's Gate?... I don't know, we should ask Mr. Siepen) practically created power metal and then Stratovarius just combined it with Malmsteen influences...

I love Slayer, but it's not them who invented trash..... it is Metalllica who started this type of music.

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

See people, look at the first branch of the tree. The only real metal band of the bunch is Black Sabbath.

Hence, Black Sabbath were the most infuential metal band of all time. Period!!!!!

I vote for Black Sabbath! They are awesome. But the other bands mentioned played their part too, no one denies their merit, but BS were the mother of all hard-ons, haha

My personal influence Megadeth, Queensryche and Iron Maiden...these bands seemed to have the sound and feelings to thier music which I most admire....do I think they influenced metal the most...probably not but they influenced me and thats all I can really attest to.

Yeah, of course I've heard of them (and them) wink.gif
