Not many Bands actually invented a genre of music...but Black Sabbath did. There was no Heavy Metal before Sabbath. Their early albums are all superb hard rock classics.

The creator of so many genres of metal. They manage to be super heavy but still not feel too much. They also manage to throw in some prog and psychedelic elements in their song. A fantastic band!

From LedZep 07/08/2018 22:55
I've just realised that their first three albums are at least 10-15 years ahead of its time. The debut well, basically debuted heavy metal as a genre, and has some strong doom metal and horror elements as well. Paranoid is typical hard rock/heavy metal with a bit of doom metal thrown in. Master of Reality invented stoner metal, started the down tuning and heavy stoner riffs trend, which so many bands have used after Black Sabbath. These three albums were released in 1970/71. IN TWO F-ING YEARS THEY'VE CREATED A GENRE AND SEVERAL SUBGENRES. And after all that they still managed to make Vol 4, Sabotage and later Heaven & Hell, three albums which are maybe not as groundbreaking, but are just as great. Oh and also Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and Mob Rules. Goddamn.

I feel like Black Sabbath has aged better than Led Zeppelin, the riffs and general sound is more timeless and will always sound really goddamn heavy, not just 'heavy for its time'.

Godfathers of Metal, Lords of Doom, the musical importance of Sabbath can not be overstated. Over the years, they were able to handle a number of changes in vocalist with a wide variety in styles and delivery, and still consistently produce top-shelf metal albums. All great musicians, guitarist Tony Iommi in particular is cited by almost every hard rock/metal guitarist since as a major influence, and Geezer Butler is one of the top 5 rock bassists of all time.

From zags7000 08/14/2015 08:15
Paranoid is great but their debut may be my personal favorite. Their first 6 albums are all classic and that is a string of greatness very few can say. It wasn't Sabbath after Ozzy left but RJD had his moments. Heaven & Hell is pretty great album that belongs alongside the earlier albums as a classic. It probably would be more highly regarded had he not been replacing Ozzie and instead gone under a new name (which they did later), something Zack Wylde alluding to.
