As a litte sided note... I was thinking, perhaps would be interesting create a list of bands that were influential in a negative way... And methodically explains the reasons why.
Which would be quite useful and feasible, concerning how people tend to get too butthurt about the Dimebag trolling to get the idea. Then again, now that I'm trying to make a list of "negative" bands...
- Burzum. The Filosofem Template (yup, this stuff gets to be written in caps).
- Emperor. Lots of overblown theatricality covered in synth syrup (well, from some point). "Symphonic black metal".
- Satyricon. Okay, this is obvious. Is it just me, or does most BM nowadays (not excluding the Franco-Swedish dissonant melodic orthodox Satanist scene) try to sound like these guys from Rebel Extravaganza onward with a little pinch of Thorns?
- At the Gates. I've seen them credited as creators of Gothenburg all over the internets.
It's a matter of deciding whether to write about good stuff that degenerated or the stuff that was crap to start with. As in "Suffocation or Cannibal Corpse".
