Heavy Metal

ANSWER #3 of 11

I've been listening to metal for about 11 years now, and I think "traditional" metal bands are sort of dying out. Like the "big 4" of the 80's: Megadeth, Slayer, Metallica (back when they were good) and Anthrax. Sure they still have the ability to sell out shows, but it's mostly the old school diehards who sell out those shows.

I think with the rise of Myspace the metal genre on the whole has become a bit of a joke. Any band can tinker around on their instruments and call themselves metal now, and there's going to be plenty of naieve kids who will buy into it as genuine metal- when it's just unorganized noise. And not to point the finger at any bands in particular because that isn't fair, but there's a lot of bands on Myspace where you look at their comments and it's a bunch of teenage girls and boys saying that *insert such and such band name here* is the heaviest thing they've ever heard. If they knew anything about metal, they would know that there's bands out there that are a million times heavier and can blow that band out of the water. With the rise of "metalcore" and "nu-metal" I think the traditional heavy metal bands have gotten pushed aside. For example Slayer will never pack as much punch as they did back in the 80's/90's- and when the introduction to "South of Heaven" was actually intimidating. After "Diabolus..." they seemed to lose their edge, they have to keep up with the times, yet still find a way to maintain their core fanbase. Changing times are a double-edged sword for bands. On the whole though, it's not dying, it's just turning into a joke.
