Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 1993 / #10 and #9
The decade of the 1990s was the period when metal started making its full impact on my life. Up until then I’d been listening to plenty of prog rock, classic rock, classical music and some hard rock and heavy metal. For me, the ’90s exploded with new metal sounds that didn’t just change my world, they altered the very fabric of existence.
This will be my personal tribute to metal from the last 21 years, 1993-2013. It will list my top ten songs from each of those years. Since any music is so subjective, I won’t try to explain why any particular song grabbed me. I’ll list the band, song, album, country and genre (I enjoy making catalogues!).
1993, #10: Monster Magnet – Cage Around The Sun
Genre: Stoner Metal
1993, #9: W.A.S.P. – The Gypsy Meets The Boy
Album: The Crimson Idol
Genre: Heavy Metal
