The 50 Heaviest Songs Before Black Sabbath: #10-1
09 - Cromagnon, "Caledonia" (1969)
Think Throbbing Gristle laid the groundwork for industrial in the late 1970s? Think again. This song features all of the trademark techniques that would later be integral to industrial metal: samples, screamed vocals, machine-like drums and … bagpipes? Fun fact: Much of this song was recorded in the bathroom of a hotel-turned-studio in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. (Note: skip ahead to around the 1:10 mark if you're thrown off by the weird, sampled intro)
