It sucks that you have to try to fit. Just as you blame them for trying to be popular,
Well trying to be popular isn't something bad.
But they're trying to be popular in both the melodeath community and the core community.
Basically, they wanna be In Flames.
A kind of vocal is not bad only because bands with these kind of vocals are more popular.
Well these kind of vocals are just annoying, not the kind of death metal vocals I like.
And I saw TS live, his clean vocals suck balls in real life.
power metal can get very close to mainstream music
Sonata Arctica which has a fanbase in the pop community and Dragonforce which made an astounding leap to fame, not really.
Look at Michael Kiske of Helloween back in the day, he's been in countless rock and pop groups since and every single one has been a failure.
if not just dive completely into it like Avantasia did.
The metal opera albums were far more mainstream than the scarecrow.
Seriously, just pure mainstream power metal built around the premiums of gathering other musicians to guest sing a verse each.
The Scarecrow at least tries to be meaningful.
I used to be a huge metal/hard/emo/deathcore faggot back early 2005 till late 2007.And now you are so true and kvlt
Haha i'm not big into black metal and whatnot.
I've always been more into the cleaner stuff anyway.
You remember what I said about pride? Metalcore is alright cause it led me into metal and into the genre of music I like the most. I couldn't just shit on my origins and my past experiences because they made me what I am today.
Are you kidding? If you don't shit on who you were years ago you'll never grow.
Why would you respect yourself years earlier despite all the mistakes and bad choices you've made? No you're supposed to hate who you've been and inspire to be far better than that.
You're not going to say in 30 years "Boy i really respect myself as a 17 year old"
I recently bought Dopethrone by Electric Wizard
and Echoes Of Decimation by Origin.
Very weird combo there, but still fucking great choices.
