Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 2003 / #6 – #4

MetalCatMy goodness, today we have a head-to-head between Angela Gossow, my favourite female growler, and Simone Simons, my favourite metal soprano. That’s just how the sorting worked out.

Black Label Society and Ozzy bring the temperature back down to normal in my office.

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. Still don’t need Epica:-) With Black Label Society I have always the impression Zack’s songs could be just a bit better if he would put a bit more effort in the writing instead of – as it feels – collect some (really) good ideas and put out a record every year. “We Will Rise” is just a lesson how you write a (genre) hit. Actually it’s the second song after “Nemesis” that I ever heard by the band – and I just know that til now because it stuck so long in my head back then:-)
