    How do you feel about today's modern metal music scene?

    'Rising from the darkness where hell hath no mercy and the screams of vengeance echo on forever, only those who keep the faith shall escape the wrath of the metalliah' Judas Priest-1984 things arent said like that anymore. todays music, 'metal', lacks many things:
    1. virtuosity
    2.feeling/ passion
    3. well thought out balance in musical texture
    4. etc.etc. among many other things
    most of today's metal bands use fondational techniques like machinegun riffage for chorus', pre chorus', and verses. solos w/ only root -fifths progressions, unintellgible vocals...
    What happened to the influence of the great bands of the 80's and 70's that were supposed to help today's music?

    I don't think it's that bad. I have to admit that most of the metal I listen to is not recent but bands like Arch Enemy, Killswitch Engage, Devildriver, Sevendust, Avenged Sevenfold and others seem to have a good amount of success. Both critical and popular.

    I my opinion modern metal music it's very different and better than last decade, Killswitch Engage are really great yes they are and i dont think, better, I dont agree with Hassun put the Killswicth in the old bands...anyway i do prefer the news bands they dont scare me much he he he

    hehe yes it donsn't scare me eaither now.lol.

    but yes I think the new metal is better. The old type to me is kinda steriotypical I guess you could say.
    I dont know I just never seemed to get into it.

    I dont really agree with the whole it has no passion or feeling cause I am getting alot of that out it.

    but now I like avange sevefold and killswitch engage and others. so yea. ^_^

    I totally back you up! TODAY's metal is the stereotypical stuff. there was so much originality in the 80's. grunge is what killed it, and from that other kinds of music formed. to me, this is just a fad. i sincerely believe that it all started dying w/ nirvana and everything else went bad from there. the feel and passion that singers such as Ronnie James Dio-Dio, Klaus Meine-Scorpians, Rob Halford-Judas Priest, Paul Diano and Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden, Steve Perry-Journey, and other vocalists have others from today's metal scene just cant compare. then the greatest guitarists ever were from that era: Yngwie Malmsteem, Steve Vai, Glenn Tipton, Micheal and Rudolph Shenker, Randy Rhoads,and Van Halen, only to name a few. not to mention how none of you repiled about the riffage remark.

    Well it does make sense
    technology has much improved from the 1980s and I have to say that the moder bands have just gotten to lazy to do some real music
    I am very disappointed, but who can blame them?
