Top 10 Metal Songs for Saluting Military Veterans on the Veterans Day, 11.11.November 11 is Veterans Day in the U.S., and Remembrance Day in Canada, France and Belgium.
November 11 is also The International Metal Day.
Some say that The Metal Day on 11.11. is in tribute to the custom Marshal amplifiers, presented in the comedy 'This Is Spinal Tap', where the amp volume knobs go to 11 and not to 10.
No coincidence that Sam Dunn released his epic documentary 'Metal Evolution' on 11.11.2011, and the documentary has 11 episodes.
Metal music has a powerful kinship with military:
1) metal bands have been inspired by military themes many times
2) the default time signature (meter) in metal is 4/4, i.e. march
3) a big share of metal music uses gallops.
