Depending on whom you ask in the Heavy Metal world, Venom was either one of the most important Heavy Metal bands or they were a complete non-factor. Venom is considered one of the first Extreme Heavy Metal bands of note, and although their record sales were dismal (as were many others on this list) their development toward Black Metal, Death Metal and Thrash is often cited as influential.
