It is to wonder how a few, truly untalented guys with no songwriting skills whatsoever can make money out of the music industry while other gifted artists stay underground for all of their life. I bet we all know that life ain’t fair but this thing with all those metalcore/gay/wannabe extreme/melodious (or gaycore as I’d like to call ‘em) bands has gone over the top. How long will adolescents, who can be manipulated more easily by the major labels and all the internet ads etc., affect the music map and give shitty bands popularity and wealth?!
First of all, they ain’t bad or extreme at any point. Yeap, they so much want to be and they struggle to sound like an extreme metal band but all they achieve is to sound too gay and laughable at the same time. Their soft/mellower parts are really too ridiculously popy and cheesy, even for the so called pissed-off teenagers! Sure the whole package is over-polished and overproduced but what the point of it? They will mostly be heard through earphones on glossy i-Shits and so on. Even the cover artwork with the naked woman on the vending machine is very tacky & second-rate on the whole.
I think I’ve had enough with these bands that sound all the same and do not have anything efficient to present musically. I guess this trend will soon be over and then all those guys will return to their day-jobs and their “rockstar days” will only be a memory… teenagers will grow up as well and those MP3s will be deleted in a blink of an eye. Gummy music for the masses and nothing more…
