Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 2002 / #6 – #4

MetalCatWhere were you on the night of September 4, 2002? Can you account for your activities at that time?

If I had to answer those questions, it wouldn’t be beyond the bounds of probability that I was in my office listening to one of these bands. Of course it’s just as probable I was playing “Baldur’s Gate” and reloading because I got killed so often.

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. I know Sirenia by some songs. Often good Pop melodies, but It’s to cheesy and the voice of singer isn’t my thing. When it comes to ‘Gothic’ I appreciate more the first bands of the Post Punk and Wave era that where labled with this term and bands where ‘Gothic’ – at least viewed retrospectively – is one among other sound influences like for example Paradise Lost.
    I like Symphony X also I haven’t really dug into them. Same thing with Týr.
