Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 1996 / #6 and #5
There are some bands in my hit parade that I didn’t know until somewhat later. Of course I knew Metallica – who didn’t? – in 1996, but I’d never heard of Dimmu Borgir.
Like many of you, I’ve grown to love a great number of bands by working through their discographies. That isn’t cheating. I would put Beethoven top of my hit parade for the early 19th century, and I didn’t know his music at that time either.
1996, #6: Dimmu Borgir – Stormblåst
Genre: Symphonic Black Metal
1996, #5: Metallica – Until It Sleeps
Genre: Thrash Metal
