Pendulum sucks. Usually I'm more open to opinions, but they suck. They've taken the name of Drum and Bass and added rock styles and overused kits. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against them personally. They're doing what everyone here wishes we could do.
This seems like a good idea to dilate on this. I agree. However, they aren't even Drum and Bass anymore, and they know it. In fact, the only element of drum and bass they still retain are the drums. And not even the complex rhythms anymore, just the simple drum hits. No more reeses, no more intricate patterns, no more builds and drops and "phatness." They've entered the world of tracks that run out of headroom through 5,000 dollar mastering studios, and they aren't turning back.
So, they're out of the DnB Community, and hated. What's next? Well, salt on the wound. They sign with WARNER RECORDS. Warner records is the spawn of all evil. They exploit the pre-teens (and their parents who think it is still the 70s, when Warner was the only label big enough) and get people to buy their pop music for overly inflated prices. If you had listened to me, and read my links, you'd know more depth about what they (Warner) did. Its somewhat sad that someone with your level of intelligence and musical talent decided to support one of the evils that still remains accepted in this weird, weird world of ours.
