Atra Sabbatum

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.

It's an odd amalgamation of Violent Femmes and world music, but you know at its heart, it is still pure metal.
