Question # 160

X was one of the first heavy metal bands to modernize the twin-guitar sound. They are cited often for their influence on heavy metal and the root sound of the guitar work in speed metal and thrash metal. X is also known for being revolutionaries in heavy metal fashion. They began incorporating a macho/biker/S&M style into his look as early as 1978 (to coincide with the release of their album Killing Machine). This sparked a revival in metal in the early '80s, and catapulted them to fame, in both the mainstream and underground.
