take a turn for the worse after the first few albums? I can't think of a logical explanation for it, but there are so many expamples of this that I do not need to name any. If anything, bands should be getting with time, but the opposite seems to happen in most cases. I can probably count the number of bands that get better with time on one hand. But on the other hand, it seems that the majority of veteran bands in each subgenre went to pot after a few albums.
