Ben, didn't see any attempts to answer your question, or, my reading glasses are out of whack.  My guess:

Iron Butterfly?

The guy who always sounded extremely "mettalic" but doesn't fit in this category is Dick Dale.  He used extra thick strings on his guitars and had custom amps made because he kept blowing the std amps of his day.

Was it DD?

Since I spent 3 years dedicated to the metals industry - I picked "Industrial Metal" w/o having any idea what that meant.  Not knowing about something has never stopped me before...

Since this thread is 3 pages long, I'll answer the question.

It was John Kay (Steppenwolf) in "Born to be Wild", first two lines of the second stanza

"I like smoke and lightning,

Heavy metal thunder..."

What? No mention of the Holy Modal Rounders"? First use of the word psychodelic in the song Hesitation Blues(1963, I think). Later morphed into the Fugs and after that several other incarnations.

Captain Beefheart.

"Let me lick your decals off, Baby!" :D

Almost forgot about the old Captain.

Does the group "Canadian Brass" count? :D

Trivia question: in rock music, where and when was the term "heavy metal" mentioned first?

Yup it counts in my book!  

Ben, I'm with you,

There is some heavy metal there, especially the Tuba Solo's!

The more I know about 'Scratch, the more it scares me as our tastes in many things are way too much alike. Your list of various groups and genres is nearly identical to my listen list. I'd have to say Maiden and Mettalica (early stuff) are probably my favorite.

That being said, I'm with Mr. Hong - the Canadian Brass are AWESOME!!! Seen them in concert three times so far and it's not nearly enough!

God, we foist them on our southern neighbours? So much for being friends I guess. I'd rather listen to a Chinese opera  :laugh:

Hey Ben perhaps you can arrange a US tour for "The Nylons". GAG!!!!!!!!!

Only metal I can stand in Van Halen's 1st album.  Always like punk though.  The Clash a real fav.

Right now I'm into Canned Heat.

Clash are great. Unfortunately the only tunes of their's to get airplay are their worst songs. I still love the sex pistols... so bad they are great.

Canned Heat, eh? hmmmmmm  You going to be on the road this summer? Closest the Grateful Dead get to you is Denver, but Phish are playing the Gorge in Washington. Tie dye something  :<img src=:'>

Have to laugh when you look at the tour dates for Phish and the Dead... gives you a confirmation of the social make-up of America... Tons of Mass and NY dates (Phish selling Fenway out), Wisconsin even gets a few, California too. No Texas or deep south dates!  :D

So what is your favorite kind of Metal that you grew up listening to and/or currently listen to?

Brass.  The kind that's hanging from my dog's neck and playing my favorite upland song.

I heard the Dead(with Jerry) played Missoula, Montana once.  They played at a cowboy bar and Jerry got hit with a beer bottle someone threw.  He said he would never come back to Montana and they never did.

Not a fan of Phish.  

Got a great 3 cd set- "Fleetwood Mac- Men of the World- The Early Years with Peter Green, Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, John McVie, and Mick Fleetwood.  Total blues immersion.  A must have.

BTW, Dead Fans, Archive.org has an amazing show, the famous Cornell May 8 1977. It's called the Matrix Mix and was assembled by mixing the sound board and crowd recordings together.  By far the best I have ever heard this show sound.  Now resides on 3 gold archive CD's. While you can't download it directly there are other ways to "capture" the audio in real time.  

Wolfgang's vault has some awesome Muddy Waters too.

Uncle Tupelo fans should check out A Truer Sound - a fantastic alt.country/Americana/indie music blog.

There are three early demo CDs from 87, 88 and 89 available for download.  

There's often other great stuff on there too.  Not much metal though.

Speaking of which I made the mistake of cranking up some Kyuss (heavy "stoner metal" that has a lot of Sabbath influences) after work.  My wife almost chucked my pod out the plate glass window before be-rating me "If you want to listen to angry teenager music do it in the damn garage!"

Sheesh.  She sounds just like my mom.
