Rush made popular...a style of a 3 piece rock band consisting of guitar , bass, and drums direct from the days of Cream and other British Rock trios but... with this different idea in the composition to be more mechanical , creating a original distinctive sound. They taylored that idea first...because obviously several bands later imitated them. That's a very original and creative idea to follow ..not just because of the selling aspect to it.
 
There are breaks in Rush music where drum fills/written parts, are accented on the extreme upbeat...in otherwords..very pronounced and yet haven't a thing to do with what Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson are playing. Not quite constructed like Gentle Giant's music where it is easy to follow a set written out pattern. This is complex because the timing of these small sections have to be practiced for hours. It's basically a small break maybe lasting 8 seconds, but because Neil Peart is playing something over top of it...that is precise and written, the bassist and guitarist have to plunge into the break with abundance of confidence. It's difficult for a 3 piece unit to master Rush songs and it's challenging.
 
When Black Sabbath first hit the music scene in America....people really (for the most part), couldn't quite understand their sound and were judgemental over the lyrics. They were the ultimate dark version of "Hard Rock". B.O.C. were heavy sounding, but with their superb harmony vocals it sometimes came across like a California sound. Black Sabbath had that distinctive dark British Rock style blended in with a very loud, frightning characteristic which was new to everyone's ears. Seriously....that was a weird time. Tons of Sobs by Free contained an undevelopment idea that Sabbath took steps further developing a real style from it. Paul Rodgers opens the song "Worry" with the line.."It's a cold black night", that's eating up your heart." or the song "Moonshine" were he sings about sitting in a graveyard. Although Blues oriented..."Moonshine" could have been easily a song on the first Sabbath album. Short of that and the sometimes heavier distorted guitar sound of some 60's English bands...Sabbath were more original because of how they mastered that sound and prepared it for people to actually digest.

Black Sabbath had a major impact on the east coast of the United States specifically between 1970 and 1971. When I attended concerts...people were starting to dress "dark' and acting "creepy". Giving each other the "evil eye" and it was actually very trendy of the youth to indulge in actions like those. In high school ...some kids had been tortured by a Satan cult and one boy was murdered. The community made such a fuss that a pastor was brought in to our school to de-programme anyone interested in Devil worship or belonging to a cult. Police were rounding up anyone who dressed strange..LOL The whole entire incident produced an over reaction of the extreme. In the end, they blamed Black Sabbath for everything because they didn't have enough physical evidence to prove who was truly behind the killing and the torture.
 
We weren't allowed to bring Black Sabbath albums to music class, ....if you listened to Sabbath and a teacher found out...you'd be called down to the office and hassled by a pastor, principal, or detective. The whole thing was just absolutely stupied. Everybody on the staff attempted to steer you away from Black Sabbath and it was like "World War III" for a few years. This was truly strange because it existed years before the term "Heavy Metal" was invented and years before the "Satanic Panic" era when journalists had a field day. Our school was trying to inform us that the band Black Sabbath ..was in fact Satan himself. They warned us NOT to listen to the lyrics or we might become influenced by the Devil and end up buried in a ditch somewhere. I mean...this was just silly you know? Black Sabbath were a Rock band and not 4 British cult leaders.

Two different bands, but Rush wins here for me. Much more musically interesting.

Rush by a hair, even I think Black Sabbath have a stronger discography (BS - 7 amazing albums: Black Sabbath, Paranoid, Master of Reality, Vol 4, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Sabotage and Heaven and Hell, Rush - 4 amazing albums: 2112, Farewell to Kings, Hemispheres and Permanent Waves).

I love both bands, but if forced to choose I would say Rush. They were the band that really got me into music as a whole.

Two bands that never blew me away......I like the first two Sabbath over the first two Rush but the later Rush are better than the later Sabbath imho.
I guess it's a toss up.

Sabbath for me

That's an understatement. When Ozzy got kicked out it was a dark day. I think that Never Say Die made it into the top 10. Saw Ozzy on his first tour and all he played was Sabbath songs. Only Rush song that I like is La Villa. Saw Rush 3 times.
