The real reason death metal bands love reunions

The real reason death metal bands love reunions

In keeping with the rest of the entertainment world's ever-blossoming desire to cling to the warm, fuzzy blanket of existing intellectual property, with its easily calculable returns on investment, it seems like everyone everyone is getting the band back together. And if the band in question never broke up, it's touring on the promise of performing a classic album, often one that dropped in the '80s or '90s, when more people listened to a collection of songs all the way through, and when merely selling tens of thousands of records -- even hundreds of thousands in some cases -- could've been considered a flop. It's the creative equivalent of finding a five-dollar-bill in an old pair of jeans.
