Ok, so you all heard the quesion. Please don't think of me as an idiot. The thing is, that i listen to lot's of different kinds of metal. I like prog metal, melodic death metal, death metal, power metal, black metal, folk metal, heavy metal, thrash metal... I also play guitar. Have played for 7 years now. I have been in quite many bands and played some shows with them. Currently i have no band at all. I have never had my "very own" band where i could play songs that i have done. So. Im planning of putting together a metal band, in which i could play my own compositions. But with so many influences, it's hard to choose what kinda stuff should we play? The thing why im asking, is because i want my new band to succeed. To actually do something great. And i don't want to play metal from any dying or underground genre and end up breaking up. Im not after fame and money don't get me wrong. I just want to achieve something with my band for once. So. I have been thinking about Melodic Death Metal. Would that be a good choice? Is this genre dying or not? For the moment, i belive it is the only genre that could get us somewhere. Comment, please.
