Ok guys, we have discussed this many times in the past, but let's talk about a different aspect of metal aside from production. About the state of metal as far as writing and what the fans are looking for. When I listen to old bands, I kinda want to hear what made me like them in the first place, yeah I like when they progress as better musicians, but when they totally change their style, that bothers me. When I listen to new bands, I want to hear originality and not so polished robotic sounds. With that being said, do you think the state of metal as getting better, getting worse or stagnant? Have we done ourselves to death or can we offer more? Your opinions please.
