I've been listening to King's X since a friend lent me his then-new tape of Gretchen in '90. Before that, I'd read a festival review that remarked that King's X "was the only 'real' metal band of the line-up."
 
That said, what I heard surprised me a lot as I found myself drawn in by a trio that sounded like no other band on the rock landscape at the time. I thought "These guys aren't really metal...they've duped a lot of people into thinking they are, though!" Which is fine, for marketing purposes. I simply thought they were, and are, too eclectic to be slapped with a label.
 
I feel the same way about early Def Leppard. They were lobbed in with the NWOBHM movement, but I've never felt they were metal. Hard rock, certainly. Not metal. It didn't stop me from playing the hell out of their first three albums back in the day. Wink

King's X all the way, great players & songwriters. Muse to me just doesn't have the originality or edge that KX has.
