So Pit,

I was wondering what you guys felt that the biggest defining moment in metal was. What single moment in metal (or any other genre if you want) made it great?

Lets see what you all think...

I'm not too familiar with metal per se now days, but Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath were defining moments in the history of metal.

The Formation of Sabbath!!! (The Birth of modern metal!)

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

Sabbath, definitely.

Other than them, I'd say when genres crossed over. Like Aerosmith and RUN DMC, of course.

Eruption. Sure Van Halen weren’t a metal band, but Eddie did inspire a lot of the 80's metal guitar players.

EDIT: Also, Motorhead.

But not all the elements are metals.

EDIT: The usual moments:
Black Sabbath's formation
Number of the Beast
Master of Puppets
Josh Homme writes the greatest lyrics EVAR:
"I wish we could get away
Drink wine and screw"


"Nicotine, valium, vicodin, marijuana, ecstasy, and alcohol
C-C-C-C-Cocaine!"


"I wanna lick you too much"

Grunge and other stripped down styles of music almost killing metal in the 90's.

All the established bands were going crazy, the genre was pretty much saved by Machine Head, Pantera and the death metal scene.

Look through guitar magazines at the time, count the awards he got (from press as well as fans).

I was referring to the fact that without pantera Metal probably wouldn't sound at all like it does today.

In the grand scheme of the genre I don't really see how grunge affected it at all.
