I've felt compelled to write something in response to a particular thread by "TheDarkLord", a disgruntled Turkish kid who feels it necessary to spread laughable lies even when the band members are kind enough to try and set the record straight. The consistent complaints and misguided truths in these posts are actually quite humorous on one level, yet at the other I feel there should be some end to it. Perhaps posting in response to this then isn't the best mode of action, but nevertheless I'll do it anyways: Music should be written for the artist themselves. Music should not be written for the fans. This is DEFINITELY the case in my band, DAYLIGHT DIES. We write music to please ourselves - and if we achieve that - then we are successful. If others enjoy it too, that's great. If they don't, that's fine too. Considering the fact that I know Anders/Jonas very well, and have for quite some time, I can tell you that they take this same approach with Katatonia. So your -complaints- about their current music style (which more albums have been release in, as compared to the previous style) are falling on deaf ears. It's alright if you only enjoy the old albums, that's fine.. but posting numerous enormous messages trying to convince people that you are right, or spreading hilarious propaganda about who wrote what lyrics eventually becomes irritating rather than humorous. Anders even took the time to respond to you to try and clear up some facts, but you decided to be defiant and rude to him anyways. When Katatonia wrote albums like DoDS/BMD/SoD - they were writing them for themselves. If you had thought all along that they were trying to fit into what your description of what is musically acceptable, you are gravely mistaken. Once again, it comes down to the music being written for THEIR satisfaction - if you also like it, great, if not, don't listen to it. Anders point about you (speaking to TheDarkenLord here) being 9 years old when DoDS came out is incredibly relevant. His point was that it was during your pre-teen years that Katatonia felt satisfied writing and preforming DoDS/BMD/SoD material. Clearly they find greater satisfaction in the music they have been writing for the past THREE albums, and thusly they decide to play whichever songs they feel best about. So please be a bit mature and understand that we KNOW what you like, you've made it clear. It's not neccessary to become so immature and irritating.
