It didn't take long for Queen to establish a unique sound and style, all it took was their debut album, 'Queen'.

'Queen' LP, Wikipedia

Queen's debut album showed us they are valid in hard rock, heavy metal and the progressive rock sound with most songs on it written by Brian May (guitar) and Freddie Mercury (vocals).

"Liar" and "Keep Yourself Alive"were the only two released as singles yet neither of the two charted, interestingly enough it was the first and last time that any Queen album would not release a charting single.
