Top 10 Reasons Why Symptom of the Universe by Black Sabbath Didn't Create Thrash MetalSymptom Of The Universe is a song released in 1975.
I've already made several lists of this type because there are many cringe worthy statements about Black Sabbath and their influence on metal music:
- Top 10 Reasons Why War Pigs by Black Sabbath Didn't Create Power Metal
- Top 10 Reasons Why Black Sabbath's Sabbath Bloody Sabbath Didn't Create Death Metal
- Top 10 Reasons Why After Forever by Black Sabbath Didn't Create Christian Metal
You can read ridiculous comments about Black Sabbath's importance everywhere - on this site, YouTube and some less known sites/forums. Such statements are repeated by many people - I am not talking about a single opinion.
On this list I am discussing why "Symptom of the Universe Didn't Create Thrash Metal".
The Top Ten
Speed and aggression are the first things you notice when you hear a thrash song. Heck, even some Deep Purple and Queen songs are faster and more aggressive than Symptom Of The Universe. - Metal_Treasure
Of course it didn't. One song doesn't create metal. Like cream, they had one metal song, it didn't create metal. You need to be dedicated, play it as your main genre
It's faster than most of the Black Sabbath songs with Ozzy but that's all.
Rainbow, Deep Purple and Queen had much faster songs in the 70s. - Metal_Treasure
What thrash singers sound like Ozzy? - Tom Araya, James Hetfield, Mille Petrozza...? - Metal_Treasure
Singing with a lot of pain is something a grunge singer would do (for example) and not Tom Araya. In some sense, grunge and thrash vocals are opposites. - Metal_Treasure
It's fast from 3:35-3:50 but that's all. - Metal_Treasure
Two minutes and 10 seconds out of 6:30 minutes are not metal, in fact not even rock - it's exactly 30% of the song (4:20 - 6:30). - Metal_Treasure
