Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 2001 / #6 – #5

MetalCatIncluding today’s posts, I see five of my six selections so far for 2001 are various types of black metal. My Zulu friends would approve if Zulus liked metal. Few do. One who does is my almost-grandson, Simphiwe, now all of 11 years old, who calls me Mkhulu (Grandfather). He’s not wild about black metal, though. He likes death. He’ll happily listen to a couple of death albums in a row. For an 11-year-old, concentrating on anything for that long is quite remarkable.

He’s good friends with Dark Metal Cat. They both mosh like aces.

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.
