Often referred to as horror’s greatest decade, the 1970s were an ideal time for the dark side of cinema to thrive. As the hippie vibe of the 60s gradually began to wane, the 70s saw a increase in the ideology of secularism and the questioning of religion and traditional family values. It’s no surprise, then, that many horror films of the era echo these societal fears about the breakdown of families and the lack of Christian morality.

As technology improved and horror became more extreme, the 70s provided the kind of shocking cinema that would have exceeded people’s wildest dreams just a few years earlier. Some of the biggest names in the genre such as John Carpenter, Dario Argento, Tobe Hooper and Ridley Scott solidified their careers during the period. With all that in mind, here’s a list of the 13 best horror movies of the 1970s, ranked.

13 Issuance


Deliverance, Warner Bros.
Deliverance, Warner Bros.

At the time, Issuance was truly groundbreaking, and it’s no surprise that he was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant”. Containing all the themes and aesthetics of a Grindhouse survival thriller and featuring some of Hollywood’s biggest superstars of the day, including Burt Reynolds and John Voight, the film is also known for its inclusion of a graphic rape scene now synonymous with the phrase “squeal like”. a pig’ and features the most famous and iconic banjo scene in Hollywood history. Despite its controversial content, the film was a critical and box office success, earning three Academy Award nominations and five Golden Globe Award nominations.


12 Suspiria


Suspiria_1977 Produzioni Atlas Consorziate
Produzioni Atlas Consortium

To be fair, a number of films by Italian director Dario Argento could have made it to this list, but Suspiria, is probably one of the best-known and best-loved films in his repertoire. This supernatural horror is about a German ballet academy that is actually home to a clan of witches. really disturbing, Suspiria was recognized as a highly influential film in the supernatural subgenre and was praised for its visual and stylistic flair. The soundtrack of the 70s progressive rock band Leprechaun is also crazy And completely adds to the feeling of unease throughout the film.

11 I spit on your grave


I spit on your grave
The Jerry Gross Organization

This is related to an entrance that divides. As Issuancethe film featured extreme sexual violence and disturbing content, but this time it was increased to 11. Unlike Issuance however, the film lacked any Hollywood flare. It was depraved, nihilistic and completely depressing. It did, however, achieve what it set out to do and was a hard-hitting film, to say the least. Despite performing poorly at the box office, mixed reviews, and being banned almost worldwide for a long time, I spit on your grave continued to raise a massive cult following and became a huge hit when it was made available on VHS tape, reportedly topped sales of The Godfather Part 2 and Fat.


ten Carrie


Carrie
United Artists

Adapted from Stephen King’s “King of Horror” epistolary novel of the same name, Carrie is universally hailed as one of the finest supernatural horrors of all time. Sissy Spacek, in particular, elevates this film to greatness with her portrayal of Carrie White (for which she received a Best Actress nod at the 49th Academy Awards) as an introverted teenager who has been ruthlessly victimized. bullied at school, but then gets revenge in the most obnoxious and shocking fashion.

9 the omen


The Omen, 20th Century Fox
20th century fox

the omen follows young Damien, who was replaced at birth by his father, unbeknownst to his wife, after their biological child died shortly after birth. As a series of mysterious events and violent deaths occur in the family as Damien enters childhood, they learn that he is in fact the prophesied Antichrist. Interestingly, at the time of the film’s release, reviews were mixed, but in retrospect, the film is widely considered an all-time great in the horror genre.


8 eraser head


eraser head
Libra Movies

Shot entirely in black and white and an exercise in surrealism, eraser head is certainly not the most accessible entry on his list, but a classic nonetheless. Revolving around man’s fear of parenthood, it tells the story of a man who must care for his deformed child in a desolate industrial landscape. This David Lynch feature debut is a cult favorite and is another example of a film that has been selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” “.

7 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre


The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Like a number of other entries, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has been let down by numerous substandard sequels, remakes, and reboots over the years. Thinking back to 1974, when the psychotic Leatherface and his deranged family first unleashed themselves on the public, this was something special. Very loosely based on real-life killer Ed Gein, the film can be credited with creating many of the elements now synonymous with the slasher genre, including the use of tools as weapons of murder and the characterization of the killer as a large, muscular figure. and faceless. It’s also fair to say that it paved the way for these types of films to serve as a vehicle for social commentary as well.


6 dawn of the dead


dawn of the dead
United Film Distribution Company (UFDC)

Following the events that unfolded in George A. Romero’s 1968 film, The Definitive Zombie Movie night of the living dead, the world has been devastated by the ever-growing plague of flesh-eating zombies. Society has disintegrated and the remaining survivors desperately seek refuge. dawn of the dead basically repeats what did night of the living dead a success, but on a larger scale. This time, the protagonists are trapped in a mall rather than a shack, and the hordes of zombies have increased exponentially. While perhaps not as groundbreaking as the original, there’s still plenty of fun to be had in the Romero follow-up. The hands-on special effects are particularly gruesome and may leave some viewers waiting a while before anything effects-related are immediately sent to the CGI department. Additionally, and rather ingeniously, alongside relentless gore and graphic violence, dawn of the dead manages to serve as a subtle social commentary on our materialistic society.

5 Extraterrestrial


Extraterrestrial
twentieth century fox

There have been countless studies of the themes, subtexts and overtones of 1979 sci-fi horror Extraterrestrial. The film is deep and engaging on many levels and plays much more like a suspense-filled, slow-burning, atmospheric horror film compared to its many more action-oriented sequels. Extraterrestrial was an undeniable game-changer and a masterclass in sci-fi horror. It was ahead of its time and influenced thousands of imitations over the next four decades, released with varying degrees of success. Aside from the gruesome and iconic “chestbuster” alien scene, Extraterrestrial is probably best known for giving the world one of the most badass female leads of all time in Sigourney Weaver. Ripley.

4 The wicker man


The cult dances for a ritual in The Wicker Man
British lion films

This British film about mysterious events in a mysterious pagan community based on a desert island has been described as the ‘Citizen Kane horror movies’ and it’s not hard to see why. Featuring some of the greatest actors of all time on the big screen, including the legendary Edward Woodward and horror icon Christopher Lee, it was one of the best examples of creating a real sense of dread. palpable as the ominous atmosphere culminates in one of cinema’s most memorable and shocking finales.

3 Jaws

Universal images

“You’re gonna need a bigger boat” is one of the most iconic movie lines in history, from one of the most iconic movies in history: Jaws. After watching a relentless great white shark ravage a tourist beach and engage in a fierce battle with a boat and its crew, it wasn’t really a bigger boat than people wanted, though; they wanted to avoid any open water all together. In reality, Jaws and the notion of a vengeful rogue shark spurred a national phobia of the sea, sharks and a real downturn in beach tourism. Activists have spent many years since making concerted efforts trying to educate people to understand and respect the role sharks play in the oceans and the Earth’s ecosystem. Needless to say, the film itself became one of the greatest of all time and practically invented the “summer blockbuster”. Decades later, it’s still just as enjoyable to watch.


2 Halloween


Halloween

Halloween pretty much writes the book when it comes to slashing, and Michael Myers is undeniably one of the most revered villains of the entire genre. The film firmly cemented director John Carpenter as one of the masters of horror. He also composed the iconic theme that continues to haunt listeners to this day. Spawning not only multiple sequels, reboots, and remakes, but also countless slasher movies of the same ilk, Halloween is definitely one of the most influential horror films of all time.

1 The Exorcist

Warner Bros.

The Exorcist really needs no introduction. As a priest and his mother attempt to exert evil force on a young child, the audience is treated to two hours of truly horrific behavior from the young girl. Whether it’s throwing up, turning your head, swearing, or doing unspeakable things with a crucifix, this movie isn’t for the faint of heart or the faint of stomach. In fact, at the time, it was reported that people were leaving the cinema in droves in disgust, with some even fainting in shock. The film, however, became a huge box office success and is widely considered to be one of the greatest horror films ever made.

As we know, we are just entering the second year of the terrible Joe Biden administration. Things are really bad.

But our national status just recently was the opposite of extremely horrible. Oh how quickly we fell. How? ‘Or’ What? Why?

Everything President Donald Trump’s good predecessor did – Biden undid and overthrew him.

Which is a shame. Because Trump has done us a LOT of good.

Trump has given the United States our best economy in generations.

10 reasons Trump’s economy is the best in 50 years

Trump raised everyone’s salaries. For low-income Americans, it was their first increase in many decades.

Under Trump, Americans have seen their best wage growth in 40 years

Rising wages: The US economy now works better for low-wage workers

Trump has made us a net oil exporter – in just over a month in office.

Breakthrough: US Becomes Major Oil Exporter Under Trump

We’re giving you just a fraction of Trump’s presidential legacy – to remind everyone how much we’ve had him very recently.

Biden murdered our energy independence – day one.

Biden suspends oil and gas leasing in series of executive actions

The first of many attacks on our energy sector.

Biden administration fuels higher energy prices with oil and gas crackdown, JEC analysis finds

Which, of course, led to this.

Biden breaks record with highest gas prices ever

And it’s not just gas prices that are setting obnoxious records.

Worst inflation in 40 years

All of the above – and other dumb Biden policies – have created a bit of a supply problem.

Biden escalates supply chain mess

All of the above – and other stupid Biden policies – have created a small economic problem.

Joe Biden’s economy is already a disaster. Here is the table that proves it

So with all this Biden economic horror in mind – why would Congress do this?

DC makes sure only billionaires can get a loan – in the name of ‘Helping the Little Guy’

Biden has made the economy the worst it has been in many decades. And now his Democrats in Congress are seeking to ban loans to the poor. What the poor absolutely need – because Biden has made the economy the worst it has been in many decades.

Congress is seeking to cap the prices of so-called “payday loans.” Here is the very horrible Democratic Senator from Ohio, Sherrod Brown, who congratulates himself for having co-sponsored this nonsense.

“Payday loans” are so named – because poor people take out loans when they run out of money before payday. Like, say, when their car breaks down – and they have to run the car…to get to work to get paid on payday.

Rich people don’t need payday loans – because they have the money to cover things like that.

The poor used to get these loans from small community banks. But DC took care of it.

Killing Community Banks: Dodd-Frank’s Intended Consequence:

“Banks deemed too big are more than 30% larger than before the law was passed in 2010, and 80% larger than before the 2008 banking crisis. The six largest U.S. financial institutions now have assets some $10 trillion, or almost 60% of GDP; and they control almost 50% of all bank deposits.

“Meanwhile, their smaller competitors are struggling to survive. Community banks and credit unions are disappearing at the rate of one a day. Access to local banking services disappears with them.

“Local banking” – such as short-term loans and lines of credit for the poor.

Economics abhors a vacuum. DC having murdered a poor moneylender – another has arisen in his place. Born was the payday lender.

DC won’t let that either. They want to cap payday loan prices – but we know what that really means.

As basic economics and 10,000 years of human history tell us, price caps kill the capped item. The most famous of MANY examples?

How Gas Price Controls Triggered the Shortages of the 1970s:

“The era of price controls is best known for long lines at gas stations….

“At the time, ‘price controls were turning a minor adjustment into a major shortage,’ Thomas Sowell said.

If you can’t make a profit from something, you stop producing that something. Because human nature. Because duh.

Artificial price caps on payday loans – will make it nearly impossible to make a profit on payday loans. So no one will offer payday loans anymore. Because human nature. Because duh.

And the people hardest hit aren’t the payday lenders. Although it’s ridiculously, stupidly hard for them.

The hardest hit are the payday lenders. The poor who desperately need these short term loans.

Especially now – in the midst of Biden’s extremely terrible economy.

DC isn’t great? First, they prevent people from making money. Then they prevent people from borrowing money.

This is all very, very helpful.

Paris Jackson is preparing her very first tour!

The second child and only daughter of Michael Jackson, the king of pop music, has followed in the footsteps of his late father in the entertainment industry.

However, TMZ recently shared that the budding musician’s debut tour was being promoted by none other than AEG; the same company sued for the death of the “Smooth Criminal” artist.

Paris Jackson partners with the infamous AEG company

MEGA

Before the death of MJ, the famous artist made a last tour which was unfortunately interrupted by his untimely demise.

The “Billie Jean” singer’s latest show was promoted by AEG, which was reportedly involved in the late artist’s daughter’s first tour as a solo artist.

According to sources, Paris would be hitting the road in March and their first concert was planned in their namesake city in France.

The weekend show in Paris was promoted by AEG, which came as a surprise given the Jackson family’s dark past with the company.

A year after the “Beat It” singer passed away in 2009, the pop icon’s mother Katherine has sued the promoter over her son’s wrongful death.

The lawsuit claimed that AEG was partly responsible for MJ’s death for hiring Dr. Conrad Murray, the top-ranked personal physician at the time of his death.

Unfortunately for the Jackson family, the jury found in the company’s favor, saying AEG was not responsible for the Hollywood Walk of Fame alum’s death from drug addiction.

Given that Paris’ grandmother blamed the promoter for not prioritizing the “Beat It” musician’s health, it was baffling to see how the young singer teamed up with AEG for her first tour.

As the outlet shared, the company would only promote the 23-year-old artist’s show in Paris, while the rest of the tour would take place in the United States.

For the upcoming concert, fans will be able to see the singer perform alongside Patrick Droney in cities like Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Seattle, Portland, and more.

The model’s godfather, Macaulay Culkin, helped her land a role in ‘American Horror Stories’

MEGA

Last year, The Blast revealed that beloved child star Macaulay Culkin helped Paris with her auditions for the hit series ‘American Horror Stories’.

During his lifetime, the King of Pop was good friends with Culkin and even named the “Home Alone” star godfather to his children.

Naturally, after MJ’s death, the “RICHIE RICH” actor fulfilled this role to the best of his ability by becoming the guardian and mentor of his late friend’s children.

As for Paris, the 23-year-old previously confessed that she got some of her best acting tips and tricks from Culkin, especially while auditioning for “American Horror Stories.”

According to the “disappointed” singer, her sponsor advised her on how best to portray the given character during the auditions. In his words:

“He said to overdo it at times, kind of like, overdo it and make it theatrical.”

Along with helping her pass the show’s tryouts, ‘The Good Son’ star was also her goddaughter’s confidante while they were on the show.

At the time, the “Habit” actress revealed that the cast had signed a strict NDA agreement prohibiting them from revealing the show’s content.

That’s why whenever Paris felt like discussing the thriller series, she would call Culkin since the two were both members of the “Part of the American Horror Story” franchise.

Paris-Jackson Revealed that her late father was aware of her sexuality

As The Blast reports, the late pop culture icon was loved not only for his contributions to music, dance and fashion, but also for his affectionate side.

According to the daughter of the 15-time Grammy winner, the “Bad” singer was a sensational entertainer and caring parent.

During an episode of Paris’ Facebook Watch series “Unfiltered: Paris Jackson and Gabriel Glenn,” the 23-year-old shared some juicy details about her late father.

The “Gringo” actress said the late entertainer was aware of her bisexual nature, but rather than judging her romantic interests, MJ always made her daughter feel loved.

The model revealed that her father teased his children about their love life and always got excited whenever they found a partner. The legendary musician died in 2009 when Paris was just 11 years old.

THE HOUSE THAT SCREAMED (1969) Reviews & Preview https://horror-fanatics.com/the-house-that-screamed-1969-reviews-preview/ Sun, 27 Feb 2022 00:59:54 +0000 https://horror-fanatics.com/the-house-that-screamed-1969-reviews-preview/ ‘Only the killer knows Why and How? ‘Or’ What and WHO is the following!’ The house that cried is a 1969 Spanish horror film in which a mysterious murderer kills young women at a French boarding school.

‘Only the killer knows Why and How? ‘Or’ What and WHO is the following!’

The house that cried is a 1969 Spanish horror film in which a mysterious murderer kills young women at a French boarding school. Also known as boarding school.

Directed by Narciso Ibáñez Serrador (Who can kill a child?) of a screenplay he wrote under the pseudonym “Luis Penafiel” based on a story by Juan Tébar.

The film stars Lili Palmer, Cristina Galbó, John Moulder-Brown, Maribel Martín, Mary Maude and Cándida Losada.

Parcel [contains spoilers]:

At a 19th-century French boarding school for “troubled” girls, headmistress Madame Fourneau (Lili Palmer) forbids her teenage son Luis (John Moulder-Brown) from near any of the girls, finding no between them well enough for him. A series of murders begins after the arrival of a new student, Thérèse (Cristina Galbó) and Fourneau’s assistant, Irène (Mary Maude).

Fourneau investigates these deaths, eventually leading her to the attic where she discovers that Luis’ frustrated desires have forced psychotic urges to the surface, causing him to hunt down the unfortunate girls to acquire body parts to create his own “woman.” ideal”. Luis then locks up his mother with his new creation so that his mother can get to know his future “daughter-in-law”…

Comments:

“The film’s ending, which easily transforms the film from thriller territory into full-fledged horror, is a little silly compared to the powerful and oppressive atmosphere the film has exuberated so far, but it’s still deliciously wicked. […] A great film and highly recommended by yours truly…” At the Mansion of Madness

The house that cried is a seminal work that has inspired surprisingly little critical analysis, or even fanish coverage, at least in the United States. Yet his prescient vanity (an invisible slasher at a girls’ boarding school) sketches both Suspiria (also set in an all-girls boarding school) and a decade of slasher-in-a-sorority movies.“Communist Vampires”

“…perfectly captures girls’ oppressive sexual needs with artistically erotic intercuts.” John Stanley, Characteristics of creatures

“Serrador’s point of view on the subject [girls’ schools] benefits from its expert handling of suspense and a hothouse atmosphere of teenage desire that could be cut with the proverbial knife. It’s an atmosphere that, despite Serrador’s international aspirations, had obvious meaning for Spanish audiences under Franco. Madame Fourneau is a repressive despot who runs the school with military precision…” Jonathan Rigby, European Gothic

Buy: Amazon.co.uk | Amazon.co.uk | Amazon.ca

“The expert photography makes great use of the baroque sets, often spinning the girls across the screen, each expression perfectly conveying where they are in the academic food chain.” Digital Mondo

“…the massacres are perfectly conveyed and the film’s accessible characters and Samson’s performances make for a cinematic treat.” It’s nice to see a movie where every shot has been painstakingly planned to perfection and the net result is a visual masterpiece that excels from start to finish. A slash above…

“And the Oscar goes to…” Well, we don’t know yet!

For those interested in Hollywood happenings, the start of the year is particularly exciting because it signifies “awards season.” From the Screen Actors Guild Awards to the Golden Globes to the Oscars, moviegoers around the world are tuning in to see who this year’s winners will be.

On December 21, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced shortlists in 10 categories for the upcoming Oscars: Documentary Feature, Documentary Short, International Feature, Makeup & Hair, Music (Original Score), Music (Original Song), Animated Short, Live Action Short, Sound and Visual Effects. While this doesn’t guarantee a nomination, it does give the audience a chance to anticipate what the nominees might be.

Specifically, international films give people the opportunity to cross cultural boundaries and language barriers and connect based on feelings and emotions. Check out these five potential Oscar nominees in the International Feature Film category ahead of the March 27 ceremony:

Norway, “The worst person in the world” (2021)

Lead actress Renate Reinsve won the ‘Best Actress Award’ at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival for her performance in ‘The Worst Person in the World’. Although Reinsve isn’t what the title suggests, her character, Julie, does feel like it at times as she navigates a complicated and uncertain love life. Julie’s emotions and experiences are not uncommon, which is what makes her so relevant to so many people.

But even if you’re not in your thirties and stuck in a love triangle between your comic book artist boyfriend and a younger, likable stranger, there’s something captivating about this film that will make you laugh and cry. As Julie’s other life experiences unfold, the audience learns that her problem of being stuck between these two men isn’t as simple as it originally seems. Watch it in select theaters across the United States now.

Mexico, “Prayers for the Stolen” (2021)

An adaptation of Jennifer Clement’s novel that delivers harsh material in a soft lens, “Prayers for the Stolen” focuses on the violent reality of three young girls – main character Ana (Ana Cristina Ordóñez González and Marya Memberño) and her best friends. friends Paula (Camila Gaal and Alejandra Camacho) and María (Blanca Itzel Pérez and Giselle Barrera Sánchez) – as they grow up in a place terrorized by drug cartels. After a young girl goes missing from their town, Ana and Paula have to cut their hair and wear boy’s clothes as protective measures.

Available on Netflix, the adaptation is an honest reminder of the effects violence has on people, especially young women, as they navigate the normal stages of growing up: menstruating and having crushes. The cinematography is extremely well done, with slow moving visuals that provide brilliant contrast to the subject matter.

Italy, “The Hand of God” (2021)

“Hand of God,” set in 1980s Naples, follows an awkward teenager and his experiences growing up as he navigates freedom and loss. It’s not a film for everyone – the combination of eerie sex scenes demonstrating the protagonist’s innocent fascination with footballer Diego Maradona can be off-putting, but director Paolo Sorrentino roots the autobiographical tale in heartbreak and love, which makes it very personal and intimate.

Navigating lust, friendship, and a number of other emotions, the protagonist, Fabietto (Filippo Scotti) is goofy yet charming. Scotti’s acting is brilliant and powerfully emotional scenes show off his range. The soundtrack to this piece stood out a lot, with violin-heavy compositions that help frame the artistic scenes. The cinematography is comparable to “Spencer” (2021) which masterfully juxtaposes darker lighting with a lighter color palette. “The Hand of God” is currently available on Netflix.

Iceland, “Lamb” (2021)

Powerhouse A24’s “Lamb” is simply unsettling. Is it a horror? Is it a comedy? Answer: It’s both. It’s a funny, weird, sad movie that’s purely innovative. At its core, it’s a story of parenthood, but it becomes clear that Maria (Noomi Rapace) and Ingvar (Hilmir Snær Guðnason) aren’t the parents of a child but rather a strange animal-human hybrid born from a sheep named after their dead daughter. , Ad. It’s a must-have watch based on sheer inventiveness, but presenting something completely new and captivating is no stranger to A24. What’s so special about this film are the visual effects, which add to the absurdity when the audience finally lays their eyes on Ada. Hitting heartbreak points but also adding gruesome moments, the takeaways from “Lamb,” which is on Amazon Prime, are ones every viewer needs to discern.

Bhutan, “Lunana: a yak in the classroom” (2022)

Bhutan’s official entry into the 94th Academy Awards follows Ugyen, a young schoolteacher who is assigned to teach in the mountains of Bhutan but longs to go to Australia instead. With less than 100 inhabitants, Lunana is a remote village in northwestern Bhutan. To get to his classroom, Ugyen has to travel for eight days.

Available in theaters nationwide, the film is heartwarming and illustrates the positive impact a caring and dedicated teacher can have on the lives of their students. Not only are the kids adorable, but their sincere desire to learn makes watching the slice of life absolutely worthwhile. Lunana’s expansive landscape helps create these wide shots that contrast with the intimacy of the city itself. It’s particularly monumental because it’s also the first time Bhutan has made the shortlist for the Oscars.

What rock and metal bands aren’t on Spotify? were they deleted of the ubiquitous music streaming service, or were they never around from the start? Because Spotify hasn’t quite all.

There are, of course, many reasons why an artist’s catalog may not be available on Spotify. And not just for ethical reasons, like the stance Neil Young took against the platform last month.

Though ethics often play a role, especially since Spotify has come under scrutiny for how it pays recording artists, as Rolling Stone once reported.

But there are plenty of other reasons why some music doesn’t make it to Spotify, although that’s becoming less and less the case for big band releases. Longtime holdouts including Led Zeppelin and Tool have finally allowed their catalogs to stream over the past 10 years. (In the non-rock sphere, Garth Brooks and Joanna Newsom still refuse to be on Spotify.)

But we are not talking about these artists. We want to know what slipped through the cracks or disappeared from service. Spotify only hosts a fraction of the music ever recorded and released – but even focusing on the past 40 years in rock and metal, there are several omissions.

A few caveats: The information below was current at the time of this publication, but what’s streaming on Spotify can and does change. Additionally, this list only takes into account what is currently available on Spotify in the United States, and different territories may have separate libraries.

That said, keep scrolling down to see 11 bands that aren’t currently on Spotify. Perhaps you will also think of some artists absent from the application.

11 Rock + Metal Bands You Won’t Find on Spotify

Spotify doesn’t have it all, even when you’re only looking at rock music from the past few decades. To that end, here are 11 rock and metal bands you can’t currently stream on Spotify.

100 inspirational quotes from rock stars

A reassuring remark can be a real pick-me-up. And that of a rock star is even better. So check out these 100 distinct inspirational quotes, as said by 25 different musicians who influenced rock and metal.
