Love this song - it pumps me up. - Metal_Treasure
I didn't add this song - it's very good power metal but it's not speed metal, it's not even very fast. - Metal_Treasure
The first speed metal song in music history, 1970.
Honestly, I think that Hard Lovin' Man is an awesome song - pure speed metal. - Metal_Treasure
This was one of the first speed metal songs ever (the other 'first' speed metal songs were also written by Deep Purple - ex. Hard Lovin' Man, 1970). 'Fireball' stands out because it was the first metal song with double bass drumming (in 1971, wow!). Ian Paice was such an advanced drummer!
Robb Reiner of speed metal band Anvil called Fireball 'early speed metal' (Highway Star, too).
Even though 'Highway Star' is a better song, 'Fireball' was insane for 1971, too.
Honestly, I think that Hard Lovin' Man is an awesome song - pure speed metal from 1970. - Metal_Treasure
This is a great epic power metal song but it's not speed metal. - Metal_Treasure
This is a great and legendary song but I don't think it's speed metal - Metal_Treasure
