Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 2008, #16 – #13


MetalCatToday we have brown, red and black music. That’s not the colour of the musical notes but the colours used on the artwork of the albums from which this selection is taken.

Maik Weichert of Heaven Shall Burn’s Album of 2013


Maik Weichert, founder member and guitarist for HSB, is uncompromising about his selection for this year: “There was only Surgical Steel in 2013, nothing else!” That is high praise indeed from a man and a band pretty much synonymous with metalcore. If Maik says the 2013 album by death grind band Carcass is that good, you can take his word that it’s exceptional. I did. It is. Many thanks, Maik.

Here’s Unfit For Human Consumption, one of the all-excellent tracks from Surgical Steel.

HSB delivered one of the best music vids of 2013. It’s Hunters Will Be Hunted, from the album Veto. If you’ve seen the video, enjoy it again — it’s one damn fine song too.
