Hi guys, Do any of you realized they are not really listening to metal anymore ? Not that it's a bad thing, just stating the fact. I find myself that there is waaaaaay too many bad/boring/generic metal bands popping up and I don't find myself anymore in those. Also it is maybe because I have more or less discovered all there is to discover in the well known ones, seen them live, listened to their legendary CDs... Of course I might discover or re-discover some of them, but you see the point, it's not as fresh as it used to be to me. Also I just cannot stand growls for the sake of growls anymore. I love it when it's very well done like in the obvious famous acts, but any average growler just flatten the music, even though he might be doing a very good job, it just doesn't do it for me anymore in itself. Anyway, the last thing that touched my soul was the latest Katatonia. Did I miss very good albums this year, in a melodic / emotive / chill / epic / progressive fashion ?
