Hi!!!! this is something I want to talk (or post) with you. The music downloading without a doubt generates great losses to the music industry and the artists too. If the record enterprises don't sell CD or sells a low quantity ov them, they don't support the bands. I must to recognize I've downloaded albums (very few IMO , like 30) I did it cause are out of store or I can't buy it (cause in my country there's no one copy or are very expensive, here some albums costs even 30 euro ). In the case of my favourite bands (Vintersorg among them), I try to get all original staff posible. (the "only mp3" albums I got are CG and TFB and Otyg's Älvefärd, the others were converted to mp3 from my original CD's to carry one CD and to avoid all risks) but sometimes it's impossible. I trade a lot of music and I buy a lot of CD. that is One of the things I wanted to talk. The other thing with relation to music downloading is the new metal fans... kids downloading all day long albums and reading metal-archives to become themselves in "metal-encyclopaedias" (I call them "metal-archives" guys), only to be TRUE METAL GUYS who knows everything of everyone in metal. One thing is to go to the page to read something interesting or to know something we must to know, but another thing is spend all day long reading that shit and downloading all albums in the page only to keep it and say: ..."about that band, sure that I know it, I got ALL albums... oh yes, I'm a true metal guy" and to use a t-shirt telling everyone "this band?... they are XXX," and tells you all the memorized story thinkin' "yes, I rule" only posers. A lot of times guys younger than me begins to say to me: do you know that band? I respond "yes, sure" or "no, man" depending if I know the band, and they start (if the answer is NO, sometimes when is YES) "but that band is XXX (like example), how you don't know that"? and begins to treat to all like posers...the most of times I keep silent and I let talking alone, but when I'm getting angry I give'em a little lesson about metal and I tell them how posers and losers are... it's very extense to write all the situations which I've been involved like that... kids with 12 or 13 years old burning churches, killing animals to drink blood, walking at street in the morning of afternoon with corpsepaint, black metal t-shirts and the arms filled with inches... invoking Satan (even once a group of kids gave me a invitation to the "satan church", a place where all black and metal fans must be in) I understand the black metal begginings, when BM was a revolucionary movement to keep the ancient beliefs, declaring war to the chistianism for that... well I'm pagan and I understand it, but now, in 2007 a little kids who converts those pagan feelings and thoughts on a fashion style are doing the same like Varg, Samoth, Infernus, Faust, Fenriz and so many others did? I was talking about it with Gawen of UM, but what do you think?
