Default Obscure Heavy Psych/Heavy Rock/Proto-Metal

Proto - Metal :
As I would definite it would be bands that were not metal themselves per say, but very instrumental in helping to influence the future shape of the genre .I know that bands such as Deep Purple, Black Sabbath , Uriah Heep, etc. are debatable as to whether they actually were METAL bands or proto metal ( especially Sabbath who is generally considered metal by most .) so I will try to stick to the more unsung bands of the era who exhibited these same qualities.

First up :

Great topic. You've listed three great examples. Night Sun just "smokes".

The power trio Dust.
Dust-Dust(1971)

I can see me loving this thread DAKILLERWOLF especially if you and JOE are putting up some quality early metal sounds from the 70s!!
Cant beat some GROUNDHOGS from 1970 [very heavy in its day ! ]The band are still going......me and Sweaty saw them not so long ago...still rocking!!



Got the Thank Christ for the bomb album....its a corker!

Great thread, always trying to find these kind of bands.

Here's Jeronimo - News. Album is called Cosmic Blues from 1970.

Great contributions, guys !

All three are bands I had planned on adding later

But here is the weird part...
I swear I was listening to Groundhogs earlier
and I spun Jeronimo's self titled vinyl in my room just before coming out
here to computer and reading this..................
I am now convinced that this thread was preordained by the Rock Godz themselves \m/



more to come

LOU, The Mighty Groundhogs! Thank Christ for the Bomb is my fav. For this thread I would use an example from Split(which you did) or from Hogwash.

Here's a given.


May Blitz was formed by Tony Newman who drummed with the Jeff Group on Beck-Ola and two fellow Canadians who moved to London. The self-titled debut was released in 1970 and six months later The 2nd of May was issued. Tony Newman later went on to the Three Man Army.
