Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 2009, #12 – #9

MetalCatA small percentage of people of any age listen to metal. Probably an even smaller percentage listen to classical music. If you mix the two forms you risk bombing out completely. Fortunately bands like Dark Moor are masters of neo-classical integration.

Who was the master of pure integration? All you British, hands up for Newton. All you Germans, give a yell for Liebnitz. Of course a lot of the work both of them did was derivative.
