Default Mountain

I searched and there was no thread about them 0.o! So lets start some discussion about them.

Im the mr.cool dude who discovered them off guitar hero :P. To me theyre the typical classic rock with a thrash metalish tint to the guitar- nice touch. Good overall band the only thing i can think to say about them is that i dislike the vocals.

Hits:
Apolitical Blues
Mississippi Queen
Boys in the Band

Mountain. Thrash Metal? All I remember of them is the immortal Nantucket Sleighride being used as the theme for Sunday's TV Weekend World.

You do know they came out in the 70's? That's why I was questioning the Thrash metal adjective you used.

Amazingly consistant band. Not a bad release from them ever.

They were a heavy blues band - similar to Led Zeppelin or Deep Purple. I think I used to have Mountain's greatest hits on tape b/c I used to love Mississippi Queen back in the day. The lead singer / lead guitarist is Orca big.
