Currently diving in some UK Hard Rock classics from the early 70's, actually the birth of the genre. Whatever you think is mandatory you can name here. The band must contain some Heavy parts. Many bands from these days used to mix rock/blues/folk/heavy so I'm perfectly ok with that, but if there are strictly no Heavy Metal part, avoid it. For example, bands like Emerson Lake & Palmer, Genesis, Yes... can gently fuck off.

Bands I already dig :

Led Zeppelin
Deep Purple
Black Sabbath
Uriah Heep
Humble Pie
Wishbone Ash
Nazareth
Camel


Now gimme more please.
PS : I don't like Thin Lizzy in case someone think it would qualify here.

PINK FAIRIES "Kings of Oblivion"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAH9EdkMBkw

First album's the best one but it's more psychedelic etc., has its heavy moments too.

JERUSALEM's s/t album gets usually mentioned in threads like these, and for a reason: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTOqLjuIgvQis RAW & HEAVY

You should know UFO? "Phenomenon" is mandatory.

Never heard of Pink Fairies... what a name. Since I managed to accept a good band can be named Humble Pie, I guess I will try this one too Smile Regarding Jerusalem, I've never managed to get into their full-lenght, but I've listened to the single "Kamikaze Moth" a hundred times ! UFO I don't know well at all, and for some reasons I thought they were german... Will try !

These are countless and most of them are top bands. you should just open Youtube, write down a band from that period and You'll enter in another world Very Happy
At least that's how I do it and I have found some very fine bands this way.

That must be cos Michael Schenker played in UFO.

Yeah the names... Pink Fairies, Humble Pie, Fuzzy Duck Razz Larry Wallis who was in Motörhead in their early days played on "Kings of Oblivion"; there's "City Kids" opening that album which can be found also on "On Parole" (as well as other his songs).

I used to hunt down shitloads of old hard rock/proto-metal stuff but really gave up on most stuff when it hit me there were only a couple of good songs on the records... only kept to my chosen favourites.

IRON CLAW for heaviest stuff this side of Black Sabbath. They actually started as a Sabbath cover band... it's just rawer and more blunt. This wasn't a keeper for me but you might want to check them out:

RAINBOW must be the ultimate proto-metalband imo.

Rainbow is 70's Heavy Metal to the bone, not proto metal. Maybe proto Symphonic Epic Heavy Metal Smile

Classic record indeed !
