I wonder who was the first band that invented True Metal Music .
Some say that was OZZY or ACDC and others would say LED or even Metallica.
Better leave to you this decision

Venom aren't thrash And stylistically all those thrash bands are very similar whereas the bands who were part of the NWOBHM aren't stylistically similar. The only thing they have in common is that they play heavy metal.

I agree about Venom not being thrash, but they are labelled as blackened thrash on this site. I also agree that NWOBHM was more of an era than a music style, since they had very different sounds.

If people think Sabbath is the first that's ok with me, But imho I think it's blue cheer. Blue cheer had all the power and Heaviness that's in metal , they also were one of the first to down tune their guitars and the first band to stack their amps. A lot of people referred to them as Hendrix rip-off but that's debatable cause both bands formed in 1966 Hendrix could of heard them in '66 and decided to rip off their sound before they could be signed. I think the were a lot heaver than Hendrix's band though, an influenced countless metal bands including Sabbath & Motorhead.

first metal bands in my opinion:

1. blue cheer
2. 31 flavors
3.bent wind
4. High Tide
5. Stray
6.Black Sabbath

I now a lot of other could be added between Sabbath and blue cheer but most of those bands are more Acid Rock then Metal.

I didn't know of Bent wind, but I liked them when I checked them out. I will add one of their songs on my list Songs from the 60's and 70's every metal fan should hear. Thanks!

Great sum up, my thoughts too.

For me personally Scorpiens (Fly to the Rainbow), Judas Priest (Sad Wings of Destiny), Motörhead (Overkill) and probably Rainbow were the first real metal bands, all active in the mid-late 70s.

All of those sure sound(ed) like Metal! I'm guessing bands like Ac/Dc, Kiss, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple were/are more Hard Rock than anything else(?) but had enormous influence on Metal. What about Sabbath? I've always considered them as Heavy Metal and some of the "founding daddies" of the genre.

Of course Sabbath is metal. Personally I would also add Budgie as one of the early bands that could be considered metal.

Obviously it's Bring Me The Horizon.

Thought it was Attack! Attack! No but seriously, every band have their inspirations, even those who started out really early playing metal. Is there such band that deserves the title for inventing _metal_?
