[font:746f=Verdana][size=9][color:746f=#99ccff]The history of heavy metal music began around 1964-1970
with bands like the Kinks, the
Who, Alice Cooper's The Spiders, Cream, Golden Earring, Led Zeppelin, Vanilla
Fudge, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Iron Butterfly, Steppenwolf, Blue Cheer,
Atomic Rooster, Cactus, Grand Funk
Railroad, Deep Purple, Free, Uriah Heep,
[img(128,180)][/img]Mountain, Bloodrock, Black Widow,
and Black Sabbath, Iron Butterfly Heavy album and Steppenwolf's
song Born to Be Wild which contained the phrase "heavy metal thunder" share credit
for the name heavy metal. The genre borrowed heavily from rock
and the blues but moved towards a more aggressive direction than other bands
from the 60's incorporating energetic live shows and darker melodies and themes.[/color][/size]

[size=9][color:746f=#ffcc00]Cream is one of the best known bands which appeared early
in the genre known for classic songs like Sunshine Of Your Love and White Room.
The Jimi Hendrix Experience featuring the legendary Jimi Hendrix on guitar and
vocals was incredibly revolutionary and remains a strong influence on musicians
today, especially guitarists. Groundbreaking albums like Are You Experienced?,
Axis Bold as Love, and Electric Ladyland were pivotal[img(165,255)][/img]
in the future direction of rock. Led Zeppelin was also a big contributor to the
movement incorporating in heavy thudding guitars and high almost screaming
vocals. Deep Purple's classic Deep Purple In Rock showcased Ritchie Blackmore's
classical guitar style juxtaposed against the intense screams of Ian Gillan's

In 1970 Black Sabbath made what many consider to be the first true heavy metal
album self titled Black Sabbath followed in the next few years by Paranoid and
Master of Reality. Guitarist Tony Iommi, vocalist
Ozzy Osbourne, drummer Bill Ward, and bassist Geezer Butler churned out gloomy
heavy churning riffs and rhythms accompanied nicely by Ozzy's eerie vocal style.
This Birmingham act nearly single handedly defined the essence of the heavy
metal genre combining a fascination with dark mythological and religious subject matter
juxtaposed against the reality of a working class life in poverty ridden industrial Birmingham during the early 70's.[/color][/size][/font]

[font:746f=Verdana][size=9][color:746f=#ff00ff]Newer bands like Judas Priest, Queen and Blue Oyster Cult
took up the mantle of these older bands and
their voice to an ever growing revolution in rock music. Queen was the most
experimental of the groups combining interesting and beautiful melodies with
classically inspired harmonies which bordered on progressive and experimental
rock. Kiss took the genre to a fevered pitch using classic elements of theatre
such as fire and fake blood to keep audiences interested. In the late 70's heavy
metal went through a decline and the giants of the early 70's started to loose
influence due to deaths and personnel changes. AC/DC, Judas Priest, Queen, and Rush
kept the genre alive but only just.[/color][/size]

early 1980s saw a revival of metal of a sort with bands like Ozzy Osbourne and
Motley Crue among others. Unfortunately due to highly commercialized excess
driven hair bands the genre was sent in to another decline where the music would
be reabsorbed into new genres. By around 1990 most
heavy metal had evolved into other rock genres like [/color][/size][size=9]
