A few things I noticed have been crossing my mind on a day to day basis for awhile now, Being an aspiring musician myself these things irritate me. First off I like some post-hardcore/metalcore bands of this generation some of them actually have talent, The whole scene these days revolves around this particular genre of music and this is apparently what gets the green light of everyones attention. This whole scene has become an inscreasingly uninspired joke, I feel as if all bands that have berthed recently are just xeroxed copys of eachother and I know many other people will agree with this. First off music had become oversatturated with numerous breakdowns strewn throughout each song accompanied by vocals drenched in autotune and on top of that synths. Now fast forward to this very day, music is being brought back to the fashion statement; Make up and eyeliner and matching uniform have been brought back into the limelight of the music scene its like the year 2004 all over again.
I feel that most everyone in a band in this day and age is in it for the title and the bragging rights, I rarely find new music anymore where I can actually feel the heart in it and it moves me. I admire musicians who view the music that they create as there life and there baby, its the one thing they hold dearest to them, There creation.
Emanuel,Glassjaw,Deftones,Refused and few other bands I hold as my favorites because there real, they dont write cookie cutter songs and the bands dont answer to the call of current trends; Rare bands that go against the grain.
With my music, my band, and my creations; I want to bring music back to the state it was once in, writing dirty/gritty/heavy/rock and roll music with emotion and a sense of urgency, I write music in hopes to move someone as my favorite records growing up had moved me.
