And so we come to the end of my 1993 selection. Next week will be 1994. I’m surprised by my Number One of 1993. It’s not metal, it’s Gothic rock, and it’s not by a band I listen too very often.

Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 1993 / #4 and #3


The intro I wrote yesterday about my year-by-year personal favourite metal songs was a bit short, so I wondered if I should make the intro longer today. While I was pondering this matter I made myself a mug of coffee, played with the cats, read some email, then came back here and decided deliberately long intros are stupid. Only idiots would use them. I mean, why go to all that trouble and use so many unnecessary words?

Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 1993 / #10 and #9


The-Big-BangThe decade of the 1990s was the period when metal started making its full impact on my life. Up until then I’d been listening to plenty of prog rock, classic rock, classical music and some hard rock and heavy metal. For me, the ’90s exploded with new metal sounds that didn’t just change my world, they altered the very fabric of existence.

This will be my personal tribute to metal from the last 21 years, 1993-2013. It will list my top ten songs from each of those years. Since any music is so subjective, I won’t try to explain why any particular song grabbed me. I’ll list the band, song, album, country and genre (I enjoy making catalogues!).

Album: Superjudge
Country: USA
Genre: Stoner Metal

 

1993, #9: W.A.S.P. – The Gypsy Meets The Boy
