Metalheads: Beware the rise again of Metal

1 Apr

MTV may have you believing that the world of music is all sugar-coated Nicky Minaj trash or a manufactured Lady Gaga track that is nothing more than an ad, creatively driven by esoteric symbolism and vaguely disguised as a music video. But the truth is that music subcultures still thrive outside of the corporate TV industrial complex.

One such subculture is metal. And the popularity of it has never been stronger. Driven by the fans, for a while now we’ve predicted that metal is long overdue a mainstream revival. One day. we’ll be right.

    Well, we’ve seen that happened with the dark-electronic side…
    Dubstep was an active part of it until hipster and scenesters jumped in it… showing us that mainstream revival can bring both positive and negative aspects.
