The result was an aggressive riff-oriented rock sound.  The wider tonalities offered by distortion and fuzz tone, coupled with the larger, more aggressive role of drums and bass, helped bring about hard rock. The Yardbirds set the stage perfectly for the development of this sound, with their experimental sounds and increasingly unconventional arrangements. The Who also laid the groundwork with their anarchic approach to rhythm and their thick choral guitar voicings. Led Zeppelin, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Steppenwolf, and Deep Purple expanded on thevform.  Over the years, artists like Van Halen, AC/DC, Tesla, and Guns’N’Roses have carried on the spirit of hard rock/heavy metal.1]

    As hard rock became denser and more aggressive-sounding, fans, began grouping for a way to describe the new attitudes. The designation heavy metal  emerged, originating from William Burrough’sNaked Lunch” and later used in Steppenwolf’s biker anthem “Born to be Wild”. Black Sabbath, with their stripped-down half-speed themes of gloom and doom, laid the groundwork for metal as a stage for the exploration of theme concerning evil.1]
