Mick Micheal's From corners of Sanctuary opens up about metal, music and everything in between! In his words here we go!
Everything has a past – without it there would be no future and certainly no present. Metal too has its history. Arguably, the roots of is progressions are highlighted by the achievements of its prominent pioneers: Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, Kiss, Deep Purple, and Led Zeppelin – the Old School.
By today’s standards, however, those early Metal settlers may appear to be tame and low keyed compared to what we see and hear today. But are they really? Sure, the music tempo and arrangements may be a bit more dieseled up than those of the forefathers but the intent behind the delivery is just the same as it ever was. For many, the term “Old School” denotes a forum or ideal that is now passé in the Metal world ‐ a sound that once was.
Let sleeping dogs lie. Some have even gone as far as given an elementary connotation to the old regime’s achievements and relevance. As if we of today got here on our own. The path was already forged. Make no mistake about it, the Old School was ground breaking.
It stood in the face of mainstream and did not flinch. Blood, sweat and tears, and maybe the occasional overdose, were given in its name and for its cause. The trials early Metal professors surmounted were not only many but often could pose a career ending blow. Acceptance is now part of the norm of the day.
Back then, not so much. Time may heal all wounds but it all seems to cloud the memory or even, for some, hide the truth. People seem less interested in how they got here than where they are or will be going. We are missing the experience of journey, people! This author has had, on occasion, the pleasure to meet individuals who believe Metal first originated in 1995! ??? I was further schooled that if the singer actually sings then it’s not Metal.
Double ??? For some Old School is not even classified as Metal. Hell, the Entertainment industry has done a fine job of that for us. The funny thing, depending on the generation, “old school” is something different for each. Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. Give credit where credit is due… and credit is due – maybe long overdue. Keep it Metal \m/\m/
