They pretty much invented heavy metal.

A lot of metal fans - myself included - don't consider them metal now, but it's an ongoing debate as to how a band could once be metal but isn't now.

I like how many metal/death metal bands are expanding to incorporate better textures, growls etc.

Stuff like grindcore now just completely bores me. A million bands that sound exactly alike.

Awesome, thanks. That transition felt counter-intuitive, one that I wouldn't have initially thought of if I hadn't been attached to those songs and wanted to use them for thematic reasons. But I was surprised to hear it worked.

Led Zeppelin are most definitely not heavy metal. They may have had a few songs where the heaviness of them inspired other bands to start the genre, but they were never part of it.

They get classified as classic rock, but they did so much more than that - blues, country, reggae, folk, etc. They really were all over the place, which is part of their appeal.

I think a lot of artists that were early stepping stones for genres don't sound anything like what those genres became. LZ was clearly the roots of metal just look at Immigrant song.

Led Zep are a band that I've never really gotten into. I've always found them to be, overrated.

But seeing as I like to keep an open mind to music these days, I should probably try them out sometime. More than just the two songs I've likely heard by them.

Rush, too, are another band I'd like to have a go at listening to.

And I demand to know which mod is closing my DI threads so quickly. You're not giving me a chance to cut and paste for the new ones! It takes forever putting bits and pieces back together...

Probably why I like those subgenres better. I'm not a fan of the growling, either. It's really not needed because some of the music is spectacular.

That's why I tend to like artists such as Jesu. Shoegazer-type vocals, but keeping the heavy sound. It works very well together.

Listening to it again, I think it is my favorite in this edition of the game maybe more than my own.

I like metal, lately, that has growl alongside clean vocals as well. I like that contrast between the two.
