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.

    It’s a pity they did only two albums.
