I consider myself to have a rather diverse taste in music. I grew up listening to heavy metal because 1) it wasn't country and 2) I didn't know about punk rock. These were the two main categories of radio stations in Vicksburg, MS, at the time. Of course I liked Ozzy and Black Sabbath, as they were a couple of the mainstays of the genre.
As I got older, music evolved, I went to college, etc. I began to leave my metal past behind me and develop a much more eclectic taste in music. Alternative sounds were great. They Might Be Giants became a fast favorite as well as Violent Femmes.
When I heard about this CD I was intrigued. Medieval chanting of heavy metal lyrics? Really? Well, it's pretty amazing.
