Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath Black Sabbath proved to be the beginner of heavy metal and hard rock as we know it. Their self-titled first album has just 5 songs, but every one of them introduced a mixture of inspiring guitar riffs and rhythmic drum beats that hadn't been seen to that point. The music itself outweighs the voice of Ozzy Osbourne, but even Ozzy behind the mic added to the increased rigidity of the sound. One could argue that Steppenwolf's 'Born To Be Wild' was perhaps the beginning of metal, but as a whole 'Black Sabbath' kick-started the genre. Rock for the most part before Black Sabbath was more low-key, such were the sounds of The Beatles, Elvis Presley, and Bob Dylan. This album and the sound that went with it most certainly was an inspiration for such bands that followed as Led Zeppelin, Skid Row, Aerosmith, Blue Öyster Cult, Deep Purple, Kiss, Metallica, Pantera, and so on.
