Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 2001 / #10 – #9

MetalCatMy opening selections for 2001 unrelentingly show what a musical hybrid I am. I’m grateful the other Metal State writers tolerate me. They probably do so only because of my youthful, boyish charm and my vast wealth.

Number 10 is prog metal but it could fit comfortably in a classic prog rock set. Number 9 is undeniably metal but its opening minute and the string interludes could be classic heavy prog.

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.
