@Pogre\nYou probably remember, but, I'm not a metal guy. But, I appreciate and like the way you follow that genre and have a genuine affection for it. I too lived the 70's although I started in the 50s. Black Sabbath changed the game when they hit the stage. Its always easy to follow and copy. Any 12 year old kid and pick up a guitar and shred out most popular metal songs. It takes a very different talent to start a genre or kick off a musical movement. Sabbath did that and to a large extent many of the other bands we both like. My tastes run lighter but that don't mean I can't appreciate another mans affection for his music. Its music after all that should drive our interest in the hobby.\n\nWell I know for a fact that our tastes overlap because I still listen to that cd you burned and gave me from time to time and I genuinely really enjoy most of it (every song on it is so well recorded too!). I do dip more into the heavier side of things but have great appreciation for good music across the board.\n\nAnd I hear what you're saying about Sabbath changing the game. I think Metallica did too, but without Sabbath there wouldn't have been a Metallica. I think Metallica took it to new levels, but Sabbath frigging invented it. I have much respect and love for the 70s musically. So much great and novel music came from that era and laid the bedrock for a lot of my current favorite bands. The 80s..? There were some mistakes made, lol.
