I will take the heavy metal fan back in time to the 1960''s, 70's and 80's for some retro metal.

Sir Lord Baltimore – “Caesar LXXI” – (1971)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwzkyH-deVw&index=28&list=PL7EF7F062C53ABFEA

Some have cited the 1971 review of their debut record, Kingdom Come, in Creem magazine as containing the first documented use of the term "heavy metal" to refer to a style of music.

The group have been called "the godfathers of stoner rock."
