I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.


Among the churchyard’s mouldering stones I recognise a name – my own.
I have come home to Arkham.

Priest, Budgie, Deep Purple, UFO ect,.....lots of groups did.

Metallica helped push it to a HUGE level, spawned millions of musicians, created a million bands but then again, Sabbath has done this too, so have a bunch of other bands...there's really not much of an argument there though.

Metallica were never these messiahs you ignorant "metal fans" seem to make them. Delve deeper into metal, grasp some intelligence, and read the rules then come back and try again.

This.

Generic T.V. fans only know of three metal bands: Black Sabbath, Metallica, Iron Maiden. They don't know about the non-mainstream bands that helped shape mettels. No use telling them about it - they won't care.

We also have to give it up for Hardcore Punk because without it a lot of bands wouldn't have been created, Carcass wouldn't be here if it wasn't for hardcore and crust punk and they were hugely influencial on a lot of modern bands and even death metal bands of their time, Celtic Frost, King Diamond, I could sit here all day and seriously name a thousand bands and artists.

Lol, Black Sabbath hands down. They influence all of the NWOBHM bands who were extremely popular and by whom Metallica were influenced by.

Though Black Sabbath where one of the creators of Metal they where still very bluesy based *Nothing wrong with that*. But I would have to say Judas Priest released probably the first truely metal Album. So they where the ones who made metal better, In my opinion of course.

What band made metal better?

Venom, for basically inventing black metal and harsh vocals.

metallica gave it a propensity for SHTNESS AND FAILURE

I wouldn't say they invented black metal. Highly influenced? Yeah. But they just played speed/thrash with Satanic lyrics and harsher vocals.

lets see... album name = Black Metal. style, speed thrash with satanic lyrics and harsh vocals... pretty much describes black metal, minus blast beats and incomprehensible vocals.. the first few seconds of Black Metal set the ground for black metal to come after. that hissing noise w/e it is..

Some of these posts are remarkably idiotic.

TS, do you hold your breath every time you think?

Venom basically opened the gates for all sorts of blasphemic/satanic and over-the-top shit to pour out (shit in a good way) whether it was speed thrash black or death. musically they have always been far from what is black metal (i'm not going to say 'what we know these days as bm' because what we know these days as bm IS bm). they heavily influenced proto-bm bands like Bulldozer, Hellhammer, 666, Bathory etc to the point these bands were almost venom tribute bands, and those bands as well as Venom in turn influenced the likes of Holocausto, Sarcofago, Mayhem, Blasphemy etc who all had massive influence on BM and could all actually be called black metal

so while black metal would not be the same today without Venom, you can't call Venom black metal.

imo, the three most important metal albums before thrash metal are Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath (duh), Judas Priest - Sad Wings of Destiny (paved the way for NWOBHM, which itself paved the way for every genre of metal) and Venom - Welcome to Hell (first album to capitalise on being raw, savage, over-the-top and not give a fuck about how badly it played). Venom had the black metal attitude down perfect
