Hey, music writers! When you’re doing a series on anything, do you find it difficult to write something different in every intro? I don’t. I find that if I don’t try to put my mind to it, I can write easily write something of absolutely no usefulness or relevance to the subject.
Tomorrow I must put tea and flick juice on the back of Dark Metal Cat’s neck. He was scratching this afternoon.
Er…that should be “flea and tick juice”. It doesn’t taste as good but it works better.
There were two major differences between Children of Bodom and Metallica in 1997 apart from the fact that they sounded nothing like each other. The first was that everyone had heard of Metallica while just about nobody beyond the inner sanctum of metal had heard of Children of Bodom, at least not in my part of the world. The second difference was that most people thought all metal was heavy metal, and most had never heard of black metal. It wouldn’t have made much difference to them – all metal was evil, and we were all damned.
