Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 2006 / #12 – #10

MetalCatTwo modern variations of heavy metal appear on my list today. The added richness of more complex compositions and instrumentation doesn’t always appeal to “mainstream” heavy metal fans. Regardless, the old heavy metal roots are strongly evident. In my ancient, creaking mind, there’s still not much that can beat that chunka-chunka guitar sound, the powerful riffs, the soaring solos and those high tenor vocals.

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.
