    I just wanted to know if this is the place for the original heavy rock. I suggested Robin Trower for inclusion in the archive and understand the suggestion was removed. I would describe Black Sabbath as a blues-inspired heavy rock band and they are included. I understand the site is called METAL Music Archives, but back in the day heavy/ hard rock was also called heavy metal (whether we liked it or not).

    [QUOTE=Time Signature]Proto-metal, I think, is just another term for 70s hard rock, but in the context of heavy metal history. [/QUOTE] So how does traditional heavy rock differ?
  • Posted more than 2 years ago in Traditional heavy rock
    I had never heard the term proto-metal before today. Therefore, I have certainly never heard of it in the context of what I have known, since the early seventies, to be plain old heavy rock. I accept that heavy rock is traditional in the light of punk rock-inspired thrash metal. Or, am I now splitting sub-genres? Isn't there a danger of too many titles meaning the same thing? Black Sabbath, for example, are a blues inspired traditional heavy rock band whom some consider to be heavy metal.   Big Ears2010-04-26 12:31:57
