Music of the days in my opinion has gone a backwards road. What we consider good music now adays in various forms of metal is punk riffs, short tracks, and breakdowns. Really depresses me, cuz Im more interested in Melodic Rythym, melodic and speed solos, basically music that flows. Like classical has set build ups flowing constantly keeping you aware that it can lead wherever without boundaries. In conclusion I believe that bands now a days aim toward a simple progression, repetitive verses and chorus', and meaningless song lyrics. Unless theyre singing about good times or bad they get no message across. I mean Im a music junkie, I love stuff from the Beatles to Zeppelin, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai. With these artists how do we get bands that...well I cant name any crappy bands cuz I dont keep them in mind but theres many crappy bands that are" emo", "Hardcore", I cant even name any other styles cuz they must just suck so badly.
