Genres in metal

My personal opinion is the desire to create a certain sound using previous templates as a guideline weakens the total piece.

When Behemoth changed from a straight Black Metal band to that brutal shit, that really drew my attention. And some of the bands that did that at the same time as well like Zyklon or Myrkskog. I see a lot of releases now geared directly to one aspect of a bigger genre.

Wut r ur feelingz plz

There's the punchline. About as C grade as I was expecting but you're working with what god gave ya kid. Now go do something else because I'm not going to respond to you in here anymore. I want to know what people who like music think.

Good for you, and now back to the regularly scheduled stupid guy observations...

I personally feel albums like Morbid Visions and Bestial Devastation, going forward to None So Vile, and the totality of an album I hold in higher regard than any of the aforementioned in Symbolic... minus subgenre focus and influence, are the more intriguing heavy releases as there is no sure fire premeditated focus on simply one scale mode or style.

im not sure i understand the premise here. duke ellington once said "there's only two types of music: good and bad."

Ok, so necrophagist releases an album, for the next ten years you have bands more concerned with recreating that than exploring nw paths. And to me, that is the argument Simon. There are more bands now that chase a specific dragon than creating a new path or new way to interpret an old story. You answered my question basically as genreless influence is best.

And this premise may be simply because the modern over saturation of music that's released and sold.

oh yeah, well of course. just because you can play an instrument doesn't mean you can write a song. its easier to reshape your favorite bands sound than make your own.

I think it's more prominent in sifting through new releases today. There's still plenty of good music being made, that's not in the equation since those bands are creating their own formulas.
