Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 2012, #3 – #1


MetalCatA couple of the songs that top my list for 2013 are rather long. They’re worth it, says Dark Metal Cat. Aeon Zen’s song is my ideal of what a prog metal song should be. Of course it leans strongly towards the prog quarter. The Wintersun song embodies just about everything I love about harder melodic metal. It’s one of the best songs I’ve heard in the last 64 years, 9 months and 5 days.

The shorter number by Diablo Swing Orchestra is so… out there… that it sets the bar for many types of experimental metal.

Video(s) Of The Week: Aeon Zen and Meta-Stasis


Because I’m incapable of making a decision of which video to post today, I’ll give you two, videos, two songs of different styles of metal. The bands have one thing in common though, they both played the lovely UK Tech Fest a couple of weeks ago. Aeon Zen brings us some proggy-power goodness and a fantastically cute and creative video. I love their little faces put on South Park-like bodies, it’s so well made and the facial expressions are hilarious!

Meta-stasis on the other hand will blast your ears off with their extreme-psycho-tech-death-industrial-jungle metal and a very tasty, animated video. I am impatiently waiting to hear their new album that comes out soon!
