* Music/ThinLizzy



* UrExample: Music/ThinLizzy and Budgie were two of the first bands to play fast HeavyMetal, thus serving as templates for the movement. Thin Lizzy, along with Wishbone Ash, also helped popularize the twin harmonized guitar sound popular with NWOBHM bands. There's also the Music/{{Queen}} song "Stone Cold Crazy" and the Music/DeepPurple song "Highway Star," which served as the predecessors of SpeedMetal.

Backstory: By the mid 70's, the genre of HeavyMetal seemed dead in the water. Music/BlackSabbath was in tatters from heavy drug use, and the [[SturgeonsLaw genre had become bloated with many unoriginal and derivative acts]] that [[FollowTheLeader merely tried to repeat the success of the bigger bands of the genre]]. Most of these bands have arisen debate as to whether they even deserve to be called metal as they seem to be more rooted in earlier rock bands with a slight increase in volume, with little connection to later metal bands otherwise. Also, a new genre, PunkRock, had appeared on the music scene. In addition to possessing metal's hardness and aggression, it was also faster and, unlike HeavyMetal, was critically well-respected. For metal, things looked grim indeed.

** GlamMetal: Music/DefLeppard became its possible TropeMaker starting with ''Pyromania''.
** PowerMetal: A lot of bands (Saxon, IronMaiden, etc.) could be considered UrExamples of the genre.
** ProgressiveMetal: Again, some bands were early members of the genre, with IronMaiden being the most notable example.
