Probably the reason why I dislike the majority of metal-punk bands is the fact that all they transmit is hate towards life. They transfer their dislikes and miseries. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of times the music is catchy and beautiful. You can hear fat riffs and fast drumming that will be like candies to your ears. But if you listen carefully and interpret their lyrics you’ll find that what they are transmitting is nothing but pain.
Have you heard that old saying “You are what you eat”? Well, I think that probably the same thing happens with music. If you listen all the day the same stuff you’ll probably end of adopting their way of thinking.
I’m constantly watching people commenting their thoughts towards a specific band or album. Denigrating their work with bad (and in my opinion wrong) minds. Those “gurus” think they know what they are saying when making an album review. But when they say: “This track was recorded in the wrong way”, well my friends, this is one of the things that really gets on my nerves. I’m sure that if they knew better of the subject, they would be on the album cover instead. Don’t they?
Guys, music is MUSIC. We should be glad if some band experiment with new things, mix new sounds. Wouldn’t be boring to listen to similar music all the time? For me, it would. Yes, there is some artist that risk an inch more and screw it up, but there are a few ones that succeed and we are glad of it.
We only tend to see (in this case hear) the bad things about life, the things that we dislike and exaggerate our thoughts toward them. We don’t realize that for Pink Floyd releasing one of the best albums of all times, “The Dark Side Of The Moon”, they needed to experiment with some bad (for most people) experiments. We praise success without looking back the previous failures.
If you hear or taste something different, give it a chance. If you don’t like it, is not your cup of tea and that’s it. Is the favorite tea of somebody else. I encourage you to not reflect (or feeling really) bad feelings toward nobody, Bad feelings only invoke bad reactions.
