Proto-Metal Classics (60s-70s)

By Andrew J McKiernan

Heavy-metal didn't come out of nowhere. It originated in the late-60s fusion of blues- and psychedelic-rock. As hippie-power gave way to disillusionment, a darker, less optimistic sound emerged... this was proto-metal, paving the way for the even harder, faster rock that was to come.
