Songs that Forged Metal : Part-I (1964-1978)
From The Kinks to Black Sabbath, MetalRulz guides you through the Songs that Forged Metal 1 (1964-1978).
The Novas – The Crusher (1964)
This relentless slab of garage surf rock from 1964 is an ode to 50s American wrestling legend Crusher Lisowski. Vocalist Bob Nolan puts in such an OTT performance that it literally pre-dates death metal vocalists such as Tom G. Warrior of Celtic Frost by some 20-plus years.
The Kinks – You Really Got Me (1964)
Up to this point had there been a rock riff so direct and in your face as You Really Got Me? Well, maybe there was, but it’s hard to think of one.
Jimi Hendrix Experience – Foxy Lady (1967)
Stoned, heavy and seriously groovy, Hendrix’s Foxy Lady is cool as hell from top to tail.
