Anyone who put this to here, hard to read the description? Surf Rock has elements from the late 50s, so technically this isn't considered new in the 1960s...
Prog rock was created in the 60s from different genres like classical, jazz, blues etc. - zxm
Blue Cheer were a thrash metal band
What is blues metal? - zxm
Steppenwolf are blues metal
By the way, there isn't a genre called "blues metal". don't know why its even on here. but there is a genre called "heavy blues". but a lot of people don't count them as a proper genre. that was most probably a failed genre for creating heavy metal. and bands like these are Led Zeppelin, Blue Cheer etc etc. It used old blues riffs and played with hard rock power chords. so it looks like heavy blues = hard rock+blues. - zxm
As far as I know doom metal was originated by black sabbath in early 70s - zxm
Iron Butterfly were a progressive metal band
Not really, most people consider either Deep Purple's Highway Star or Queen's Sheer Heart Attack to be the first speed metal song. While some say that Sheer Heart Attack was more likely a punk rock style. But anyway, both of them were released in 70s. - zxm
