'The Godfathers of Heavy Metal'. February 13th 1970 saw the world introduced to Black Sabbath, one of the most influential bands of the early 'metal' scene. This was the only Sabbath album to feature singer Ossie Osbourne. (Forever after this, he would become known as Ozzy.) ...and rock 'n roll would never be quite the same. \m/ \m/ Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath

I always read that Led Zep is usually considered the first and most influential for heavy. Maybe Zep wasn't as pure in heavy sound as Sabbath.

There's an argument of sorts for both, but I consider Zep more 'hard' than 'heavy'.

I agree with @JolietJake -- Zep was more hard rock-meets blues than "heavy metal." Think Black Sabbath would have ever done a song like "Hot Dog"?

This is a deluxe reissue, has a second disc with a few extras and the original UK release as the main disc instead of the US version.

I took it all so for granted back then. I wish I had gone to more concerts and such.

Saw these guys in the very early days. Can't be copied by anyone.
