05:24 - deadone That's historical revisionism. Bare in mind most NWOBHM metal bands didn't do " dark, heavy." Most speed/thrash wasn't that heavy either. Indeed Sabbathian heaviness was kept alive by doom metal.
05:16 - Apothecary Also, I wouldn't call Zeppelin JUST hard rock/proto metal either, they were also quite bluesy and very folk-influenced, so there's also that to consider as well
05:13 - Apothecary I would consider Deep Purple and Zeppelin as PROTO metal at most. It was really Sabbath that developed the dark, heavy, riff-driven style that is now essentially the core staple of the entire genre
05:05 - deadone In other news, nothing gets one out of the sadness from attending a funeral like thrash fucking metal. It's that ugly kick in the face that one needs to get out feeling sadness.
05:03 - deadone Even Sabbath didn't play "pure heavy metal" - lots of heavy blues and rock n roll here even on early stuff. In any case Zeppelin are far more metal than half the shit that gets labelled metal these days.
05:00 - deadone Led Zeppelin have always been regarded as one of the first heavy metal bands - indeed the Holy Trinity is Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin. What they played did differ from modern metal.
04:34 - Apothecary I saw Led Zeppelin labeled as metal and that was my queue to stop taking whoever wrote that article seriously

Generic metalcore with more breakdowns/chugging than usual and random synth and techno/dance parts placed in the song, often times used during breakdowns, so that they can be both moshed and danced to. Trancecore also served as a precursor to crabcore, which is basically trancecore, but with even more synth, extensive use of autotune, and the guitars reduced to nothing but chugging.
HORSE SHIT! this is no band, they are a boy-band targeted at high school kids that aren't popular and think they like metal when in reality they are just emo fucks. They are seriously a byproduct of marketing schemes and nothing more.
I listened to a couple of tracks off their new album though and I found it to be completely garbage. Sure the vocals are better and it is more mature and whatever but it is just sterile and boring and seem to be obsessed with bad 80s metal/hard-rock that I just really really dislike.
Some bands should just stick to being immature, banal and fun because they really don't know how to be serious.
