    There's a real sense of pushing the blues forward, somehow.
    People point to Black Sabbath as the beginning of metal now, for some reason, but if you go back and listen to the other guitar bands of the late `60's, the Grateful Dead, Moby Grape, even Blue Cheer, NO ONE was doing those chromatic half steps, or the flatted 6th "tritones" or whatever you call them. "Dazed and Confused" is the beginning of something that sounds evil and unsettling in music, as far as rock n' roll goes.

They would build an eight minute song, then come back months later and tear it apart and rewrite big parts of it. THAT'S what made them who they were. Most people don't have that kind of dedication.

    I agree with you.

    There are things in Dazed, also the bow part of "How many more times," that, to me, sound
    scarier than Tony Iommi.

    There's almost this sense of black magic, or black mojo, happening on that first Zep album.
    Also, the way Robert sang (I was a young man, i couldn't resist...)

    Some of those riffs are just menacing & lethal.

    For me, Sabbath didn't become Sabbath until the third album: Master of Reality.
    Once he hit on things like "Into the Void," there was a new style/sound happening.
    It was down-tuned & had such a dark stoner vibe to it.
    The debut & Paranoid were more closely tied to Blues/Hippie ideals.
    "Master of Reality" was just crushing and reeking of pot.
