Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 2004 / #9 – #7

MetalCatToday’s selections are all songs about coffee. “What Drives the Weak” – coffee works for me. “Night of the Living Dead” – that’s what it would feel like without caffeine. “The Essence” – Jamaica blue mountain, percolator ground, please.

Dark Metal Cat says the answers to those three song titles are: a dark cat chasing them; what they are when he spots them; what they taste like unless they’re smelly cicadas.

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. That Shadows Fall record is great. One of the view very good and durable Metalcore records! I always wondered but don’t know how good their records after that one were. I never really got into The Vision Bleak, also I have ‘The Wolves Go Hunt Their Prey” and like it. But at least I don’t find them as boring as (the even more praised) Empyrium:-)
