Top Ten Fast Paced Metal Songs of the 1970s
The Top Ten
Haha, it's the visitor who first needs a tutorial on this subject. This song isn't hard rock - hard rock is blues based, this song is based on classical and is one of the first metal songs, speed metal in particular. - Metal_Treasure
Answer: it is well known that this song was influenced by Johann Sebastian Bach, especially the organ and guitar solos that were based on Bach-like chord sequences. - Metal_Treasure
It's hard ROCK. A tutorial on this subject is definitely in order.
Ha Ha,remember list of best metal songs of 70s?.I got afraid after adding this song.It was the same debate if its hard rock or heavy metal. - zxm
No. This is a partial inversion of a well-known boogie riff made popular by John Lee Hooker. The bridge might be described as vaguely reminiscent of Wagner or perhaps, Mussorgsky, but even that's a stretch.
Yeah, power metal from 1978
A genre defining fast and epic song (1976). The best Ritchie Blackmore solo ever, great vox from Dio and drums from Cozy Powell.. - Metal_Treasure
I'm ashamed myself how I forget this classic to put to the list... thanks!
Very underrated song, however a big influental to millions favorite 80s metal genre, the glam metal...
Zxm thanks for submitted this, but only the guitar solo is fast paced in this song, so this isn't that really fast paced song! Great song at all
@somekindofaguy, I submitted this song because this song is parted in different parts but the guitar solo is very fast paced.and this solo is even more fast paced than many other songs here. - zxm
