Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 1998 / #9 – #7

MetalCatToday’s posts reflect a minor problem that occurs constantly in metal – how the hell do you categorize a particular type of music? Sometimes it’s easy and obvious; heavy metal sounds like heavy metal. But when you have bands as different as Liquid Tension Experiment and Ayreon both labelled as progressive metal, that could easily confuse anyone listening to either band for the first time.

For each of us individually, there are only really two kinds music – the music we like and the music we don’t. If you prefer Elton John to Cannibal Corpse, that’s your business and nobody else’s.

About ChristopherMammal

I've made it to Mammal. I still hope to be classified as Human one day. Meanwhile I have evolved enough to recognise different types of music as well as the shrieks of certain vervet monkeys who are known for their scurrilous behaviour in the proximity of unguarded bananas.

  1. LOVE the Liquid Tension. I got that album on the day of release!

    It’s a pity they did only two albums.
