* The first two albums of Music/{{Yes}} count. Along with the unique playing styles of founding guitarist Peter Banks and founding keyboardist Tony Kaye, Yes specialized in re-arranged covers of [[TheByrds Byrds]], [[Music/TheBeatles Beatles]] and BuffaloSpringfield songs, while their originals showed more '60's pop influences. The band's second album, ''Time And A Word'' also incorporates orchestral accompaniment, which Yes would rarely use to such an extent until 2000's ''Magnification''.

* The {{Eurobeat}} compilation series ''Super Eurobeat'' was, for its first ten installments, [[NonIndicativeName actually a compilation of Italo-disco]], a predecessor genre to Eurobeat that is much slower and more serious.

* Music/RonnieJamesDio is best known for his work with Rainbow, Black Sabbath and Dio, but he initially started out in the late 1950s... as a teeny bopper doo-wop musician. His work with Ronnie & The Red Caps and Ronnie Dio & The Prophets is vastly different from anything he would spend the majority of his career on- not that one could blame him, he started out before heavy metal even existed. One has to wonder how his career would have gone if he'd not switched musical genres. Don't believe me? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRSMAx_X8Xg This is sung by the man who would later record Holy Diver!]]

His work with Ronnie & and The Red Caps and Ronnie Dio & and The Prophets is vastly different from anything he would spend the majority of his career on- not that one could blame him, he started on, with the former band cranking out before heavy metal even existed.

Ronnie and the man who would later record Holy Diver!]]Prophets, on the other hand, were dangerously close to Lou Christie territory with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWJucJ4BSdQ this particular song from 1967]]. Even Dio's pre-Rainbow band Elf was more hard rock than heavy metal, as evidenced by this [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqHzPgpp3RY cover of The Faces' "Stay With Me".]]

* Well before becoming a stoner rock icon with Music/MonsterMagnet, Dave Wyndorf fronted a pop-punk band called Shrapnel, which also had future Music/TheRamones producer Daniel Rey on guitar. Here's the future Space Lord in all his short-haired, clean-shaven glory, cheesing it up with a song called [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Tak4EAAkSY "Combat Love."]]

* 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.
