Does metal have another decade of life in it. Its my favorite genre of music but it seems like there hasnt been anything new in years. And I know theres plenty of great bands out there but it all seems a bit like just a newer knockoff of bands that came out in the 80's and 90's, even nachtmystium, mastadon, and gojira
Depends what metal you're talking about. There's a future for it sure, but it's probably going to keep on branching off into subgenres, some good, some bad. In my opinion, on the bad side we have things like deathcore evolving, "kiddie" forms of metal in my opinion, it's just not the same. On the other hand the recent uprising of folk metal and such I love. There's still all the original stuff, it's not going to die, there's always going to be the 'oldies' to listen to. Some things just aren't the same anymore, I haven't seen any really impressive black metal bands come out in a while, they might be good, but they're never going to leave the same impact bands such as Mayhem left, just because of how extreme they were considered at the time. You just have to dig a little deeper to find new forms of metal, some of it you may like and some of it you won't. If you're listening to Mastodon and Gojira type bands you're focusing more mainstream and less on the smaller bands that are popping up.
Metal will be here for a LOOONNNGGG time why longer than Gaga and Beiber but if scremo keeps giving metal a bad name it won't...
I think so hopefully true metal will last forever and hopefully poseur metal (nu metal, metalcore and deathcore dies).
man I hope metal stays! I think we got a few more years but we need some new stuff fer sure!
hell yeah dude. metal will never die
