What's your favorite Black Sabbath album. As I already mentioned, mine is "master of reality". It's the heaviest and darkest album they've made. On later albums like "sabbath bloody sabbath" they started experimenting a little bit, but I always prefer their earliest stuff. And Sabbath fans, what do you think of "techinal ecstacy"? 8)

I think Led Zeppelin and Hendrix aren't Heavy Metal. The first Heavy Metal band was Black Sabbath.  I consider Deep Purple hard rock compared to stuff like Iron Maiden and Ozzy. Rush is more like progressive hard rock.<br>But all of there artists are good. 8)

But sometimes it's helpful to know what kind of music some artist plays. What I think anyway is that Black Sabbath is the first real Heavy Metal band.<br>The genre-thing is really just ridiculos in heavy metal; there's death,black,grind,symphonic black,doom,hair,progressive,speed.thrash,punk,sludge,goth<br>whatever....

I would say if your into Zappa and metal you need to check some of the newer bands like MESHUGGA or DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN or even TOOL. All these bands play a more progressive form of metal (the guitarist in meshugga sounds like Alan Holdsworth playing death metal) and the drummers in all these bands are incredible. I would venture to guess that the players in these bands have more than a passing familiarity with Franks work. Check em out.<br><br>Saraband

Has anybody else ever marveled at how Ozzy's voice has changed through the years? <br>I just listened to Black Sabbath's first album and then to their last Ozzy-album "never say die". Is this the same singer on the two albums??? On the first Sabbath album Ozzy sounds completely different, more low-voiced and not "singing-voice-like". How can his voice change so much?<br>I actually prefer his "early voice". He just sounds more...more.. something (can't come up with a good word).<br><br>It's hard for me to see that it's the same Ozzy in the early Black Sabbath records and in the 80's more "hair" period.<br>He even doesn't look the same IMHO. :o

I did never listened to heavy metal, I missed my chance to know some groups.  By a friend I walked into the world of Primus, then I met the world of NIN, a little later Sonic Youth, JSBX, The Red Car, Zappa, jazz-stuff Tom Waits, Beefheart, Residents and so one... (in no particular order)  <br>When i was young my parents let me know the music of the Beatles & the Stones a bit (and of course like every Dutch/Belgian mother -> Rob de Nijs)<br>Too bad, can't answer...

Also among heavy progressives(really VERY heavy) - Death (later era stuff - really complex music played impeccably), Atheist (jazzy metal), Goreguts (Beefheart metal), Cynic (also jazzy metal), Fear Factory (industrial metal), Ministry. Not-so-progressive, but still excellent - Pantera ('Vulgar Display of Power'), Suicidal Tendencies ('Lights Camera Revolution'), Sepultura ('Chaos A.D.'). <br>
