This spacey trend is so damn stale...
Troy Killjoy - 23.08.2014 at 18:25  
Isn't every "trend" in music stale at this point? At least space is potentially infinite...
Ilham - 23.08.2014 at 18:31  
I wouldn't call it a "trend". It's a theme. There has been space-themed metal and music in general since... I don't know, I'd say Bowie's Space Oddity in 1969 at least, off the top of my head. No one says that gore in dm/bdm/grind is a trend, and yet it's stale as can be just as well.

Trend or not, it's one of the better themes a band can base themselves on.

Is that a pun? I hope that's a pun.

Ya that's what I meant but I wouldn't call it a pun. More of an analogy than anything. I'm sure Joe could tell you what the proper term is though, he knows all the weird Latin phrases for things.

A tautology/pleonasm? Because space being infinite is... kinda comprised in the concept of space.

Ilham knows her stuff.
LeKiwi - 26.08.2014 at 03:23  
I guess I should probably clarify at this point. The trend for these overproduced and plastic cover arts based within the theme of space is becoming stale.

No one expects musicians within those genres to write about anything else neither. In this scene filled with pretentious musicians and pseudointellectual lyrics, it's more pathetic, at least from my perspective.

I can get on board with the cover art issue, but not the lyrical content. No one expects death metal bands to write about anything other than death and gore? I beg to differ. Spend some time using Metal-Archives' advanced search options and you'll see plenty of cross-contamination.

Musicians can't win these days. You complain about pretentiousness yet if these guys chose to write straightforward old school death metal you'd just complain that they aren't trying anything new.

I didn't realise that Ilham also mentioned death metal in her comment. As for brutal death and grind, I don't think there's that much variation in lyrical content (and grindcore.)

Edit: actually had a look into death metal as well, and it seems to be pretty consistent between a few common themes as with the previously mentioned genres.
