Currently listening to some ISIS (the band. If you're into this stuff, you know) if you're not, they're not associated with the terrorist group =P
On this topic, for those that are into metal. Here's a question for you (We can redirect this elsewhere if it's not an appropriate place).
I was talking with a co-worker the other morning about ISIS and similar bands: Pelican, Jesu, Boris - the more "sludge" type of metal/post-rock/whatever you want to call it now and we were wondering if younger kids will appreciate this type of music these days. I'm only 26, but metal has gone in so many directions over the years, it seems like the type of people that do enjoy these bands are my age or older. Nowadays kids are all into the djent stuff and the more tech. metal. Don't get me wrong. I love Meshuggah and Animals as Leaders, Gojira and so on...but once again, I grew up digging anything that was heavy. I appreciate the less technical kind of metal. I also love prog-rock/metal. Between the Buried and Me, Mars Volta, Opeth, yadda yadda...I'm just curious what you think. Are those bands losing touch because they aren't as technical? Do you think younger generations will still dig it?
