A worrying metal trend.....
I like metal, I know what I like and like what I know. That said, I rarely listen to 'new' bands. During my painting this week, I have had a few itunes radio stations on to see if I could find some new music.
I have reached bizarre conclusions. There seems to be a VAST amount of bands who have songs that are indentically constructed;
Start - heavy chugging riffs - this gets my attention
First verse - growl, grrrr, this dudes burping the alphabet backwards....in swahili
Chorus - chugging and more backwards alphabet burping
Second verse - bit low key
Breakdown - crap, I know where this is going
Third verse - yes, its launched into a ballad and he is crooning. About love and junk.
Heavy chugging outro.
When did this crap become popular? Why was I not informed? Where do I complain? I blame skinny jeans.
The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.
