Who knew? Apparently, Prince Harry is a fan of metal according to his friend and star of The Wire, Dominic West. In a story on the Daily Star, West says that during the pair’s Walking With the Wounded expedition to the South Pole, it was all they listened to.
“Harry has a terrible selection on his iPod. It is the sort of thing soldiers listen to. Hardcore thrash metal.”
This “hardcore thrash metal” apparently includes the likes of Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax, so the described subgenre is basically correct. Give it some time and we’ll soon see headlines like “PRINCE HARRY LOVES DEATH METAL BAND METALLICA”. It is also amusing to hear West call the selection “terrible”, since he obviously means “unpleasant.” If he thinks Metallica is unpleasant, I want to be around to hear his reaction to Cattle Decapitation or something.
In any case, good musical taste for one of royalty. Think he might get his grandmother to listen to it?
