* Music/DreamTheater's first album, ''When Dream and Day Unite,'' is the only album by them to feature Charlie Dominci as the lead vocalist. The album is the most metal-oriented of any of their releases (even more than ''Awake'' or ''Train of Thought''), being a PowerMetal album that is informed by prog rock but owes far more to Fates Warning and Crimson Glory than to {{Yes}}. The songs are shorter and less elaborate (none reach the nine minute mark and several are under five minutes), John Myung is [[LeadBassist much more active]] in the bass, and John Petrucci plays a lot more riffs and fewer solos. Their next album, ''Images and Words'', brought a new singer in James [=LaBrie=] and a more accessible sound that is as much ProgressiveRock as metal and ultimately defined them as a band.

* Music/IronMaiden, under original vocalist Paul [=DiAnno=], had a patently punk vibe that lasted for the two original albums. Then (in order from each album following the second), guitarist Adrian Smith, vocalist BruceDickinson and drummer Nicko [=McBrain=] joined the band and they started showing their more familiar sound. If one compares the songs from the album ''The Final Frontier'' with ''Killers'' or ''Music/TheNumberOfTheBeast'', one might think of three completely different bands (and that's not counting the period when Blaze Bayley was the singer).

** Also Deep Purple Mk. 1 with Rod Evans on vocals. Their keyboard-heavy EpicRocking and penchant for bombastic covers made them sound a lot like an English Vanilla Fudge, though Evans' deep, soulful vocals are a sharp contrast to the shrieking, screaming Ian Gillan, who would come on board in mid-1969, ahead of ''In Rock''.

* Swedish rock band The Hellacopters were clearly rawer and angrier on their first two albums ''Supershitty to the Max!'' and ''Payin' the Dues'', garage punk albums with a clear Music/TheStooges and Music/{{MC5}} influence. In ''Grande Rock'' onwards, vocalist Nicke Andersson shifted to a more melodic singing style, with the band transitioning from pure garage rockers to a garage-influenced, yet melodic hard rock band.

** For the late Seals, it was a case of EarlyInstallmentWeirdness-ception. Before changing their sound and renaming themselves to Southwest F.O.B., the band was known as Theze Few, and they had an upbeat frat rocker called "Dynamite", which was included in the ''Highs in the Mid-Sixties'' garage rock anthology. After England Dan and John Ford Coley, Seals went solo, initially sticking to his stage name, but making it big in the mid-'80s under his real name as a country singer.

* You probably remember "England Dan" Seals and his fellow Texan John Ford Coley as the soft-rock duo who gave us hits like "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight". In 1968, they were the mainstays of Southwest F.O.B., a pop-psych group who had a minor hit (No. 56) with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N088bPAtBTo "Smell of Incense"]].

* As a Michigan teen in the mid-'60s, Glenn Frey played with the Mushrooms, faking an English accent in their song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sejypeDSfv8 "Such a Lovely Child"]]. Meanwhile, in Texas, Don Henley was lead singer and drummer for Felicity, his voice instantly recognizable in songs like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4WLXVTf2nY "Hurtin'"]]. Either way, it's a far cry from what they'd put out as members/creative leaders of Music/TheEagles.

* Music/StoneTemplePilots were one of the biggest alternative acts of the 1990s, but their debut album ''Core'' has a HeavyMetal sound and marketed as such[[note]]all of their albums [[NewSoundAlbum sound different from the last]], but this one is the most out-of-place in the discography[[/note]]. Released in 1992, ''Core'' was initially lambasted by critics for being derivative of bands like Music/AliceInChains from the then-huge [[{{Grunge}} grunge metal]] scene. Fans of 1996's "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ds_43MdYiuQ Lady Picture Show]]" may be surprised to hear [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hhu-OyHqZM Sex Type Thing]], the band's debut single, for the first time. Also, it was in the 1996 album ''Tiny Music'' where Music/ScottWeiland arguably found his own voice as a singer, almost completely [[VocalEvolution eschewing the yarling grunge baritone]] going forward.
