Now, let's take a look at the style of one of Heavy Metal's pioneers, Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath/Heaven and Hell. Tony's music is known for it's often slow, dirge-like tempos giving that signature feeling of doom that only his music can deliver. The chord progression is embellished with some chord substitutions that create an interval movement called a tritone, or a flatted 5th/# 4th.
