>HOWEVER I'D LIKE TO PEDANTICALLY DISPUTE TONY IOMMI'S INFLUENCE ON THE GENRE BEING SIGNIFICANT ENOUGH THAT IT WOULDN'T EXIST WITHOUT HIM.
True, we'd still have metal, but I reckon it would have gone in a quite different direction for a while at least. The move to thinner strings with higher gain amps and pickups, combined with low slow riffs was a big influence on the sounds of the NWOBHM.

I just wish they'd fucking retire already and let people enjoy their old work in peace.
