also, i don't see any of what im going to describe in you... but this is why i have a strong negative attitude
you have artists; some make Madball's "Demonstrating My Style"... which is just basically, folk music. it carries no grand artistic birth right ... but its not that it should be disparaged or thrown away because it's simple. Then you have ... in a similar style, a work like Refused's Shape of Punk to Come... that takes the brunt of art and puts it on its shoulder and creates more. ... i.e. The Clash/Sex Pistol argument.
so the entire time ive been writing, i dont compare myself to anyone... but I know people have seen the creativity to create something of the second ilk... the one where its art that can go to depths folk influenced music won't. im really angry because when i came up here, if i came into play with people usually they called me pretentious or a fruit, soft or anything if i didn't want to play four chords at 120 BPM in a "traditional" pattern (which really only came about because people couldn't play complex picking rhythms)... and like I said, this isn't a shot at you, or Wren, or anyone here... this state, more so than anywhere, I see a lot of people doing it not to "play the music" but to get the scraps of notoriety the world is willing to give for being just another PA Hardcore band. It's almost digressive to music.... And I get shut out and have no one to work with when my demos... done by myself, with no direction, show more texture and depth than bands people love. So what could I do with even a bit of direction, or help and that plagues my mind. But then again, you're not those people... so sorry if i lumped you in.
but I actually would like to hear what you have written; Napalm Death was the first heavy band I heard and I absolutely love Unsane.
