Metal / What's next and who's doin it?
« on: November 09, 2006, 07:14:21 PM »
If Classical forged the path for Rock, and Rock forged the path for Punk, and somewhere along the lines "ambient/electronic/techno/industrial" came about, and then somehow during the late 60's/early 70's early metal started, and now that Black and Death Metal have pretty much died after not very much time, what's next? A lot of people are really frustrated with a lack of original music(there's plenty of new music, most of it isn't worth listening to). Personally, I haven't heard really any new metal of any kind that breaks any new ground. Some of it is listenable, some of it sounds pretty good superficially, but it's still pretty much the same. The best metal happened before I was born, and when I was a very young child.

So what's next? Will it be darkwave/industrial, will metal resurrect itself? For lack of good metal, what other movements are coming up with good, original music? When you get bored with metal what genres do you turn to?
