Metal History AKA Facts

Close to a Hundred Hard Rock , Classic Rock, Blues and Classical artists helped dig the foundation so that Black Sabbath could start building the Heavy Metal mansion in 1968.  If I mention one, that will lead to all of them being mentioned. This controversy is one of the many examples of how an overly opened mind is open to infection. The people I speak of also have created the "who was the first Death Metal band" controvery. Next, we will bring this so-called controvery to an end with facts.  This isn't rocket science, it's Heavy Metal History! 

 

Without a doubt Chuck Schuldiner had a big part in the process of creating certain types of Extreme Metal. The sad thing is after his death, he left control of his legacy to a man that should have never had control of anything. All that Eric did was to try to rewrite Metal history. During the month of July and August of 2022 we will put the whole thing in context with facts by setting up all of the different types of Death Metal genres and the creators of each one. 

So to be a part of this discusion, part:1 is to study the different genres of Extreme Metal that came about during the late 70's with Venom (Heavy, Thrash, Black, Punk) and Mercyful Fate (Heavy, Hard, Black, Symphonic) the creators of the early Extreme. Leading up to the 80's explosion of Death/ Thrash, Death/Grind, Prog Death, Melodic Death, Early Slam/Death, Death/ Punk and blast beat driven brutal Death Metal. 

Possessed 1985

The Building of the second story of the Heavy Metal Mansion, The Early Extreme: The Metal landscape in the late 70s Consisted of Heavy, Hard, Doom, NWOBHM and Power Metal. All of the bands at this time were being attacked by the PMRC and others and being satanic. Venom and Mercyful Fate would proudly serve up some classic satanic Black Metal for the Heavy Metal Masses and change everything. << New text box >>
