Their influence cannot be understated. King Crimson did it better, but it was with Jazz sensibilities as opposed to Blues, and in fleeting instances at that (e.g. 21st Century Schizoid Man, which was Iron Man before Iron Man; and Larks Tongues in Aspic Part II). Black Sabbath, on the other hand, was consistently heavy and dark. This was Blues Rock taken to its darkest pit - on the gates of a new genre called Heavy Metal. The vanguard for artists like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and Metallica.

First three albums were great, classics of the genre. After that, I'm afraid to say, tedious. The band could have done so much more than they did. Still, huge credit for basically inventing metal.

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
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'.

From Fischman
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.
