Continuing on from yesterday’s post, today’s letter is B, and the band Black Sabbath is to be featured. I shouldn’t think I would need to describe what I believe to be the creators of Heavy Metal, so I’m not going to. Instead, I’ll refer you to the song that will be featured today, Paranoid.
Blind Guardian – This German Power Metal band is extremely influential in their subgenre, and its obvious as to why. They’ve been around for a lot longer than many other Power Metal bands, and play excellent music, the two of which are likely linked. (Example song: The Bard’s Song)
The Black Mages – This Japanese Instrumental Symphonic Metal Band, created by three composers for Square Enix (all of which who did work the Final Fantasy series of RPGs), allegedly was inspired by their fans doing exactly what they do in The Black Mages – remix their video game music. So, they started doing it too, and they proved why it was them that created it in the first place. (Example song: Vamo’ Alla Flamenco)
