I hate when that happens: You love a band. What happens? Many of the members are leaving, and what does this lead to? Their next album is a huge disappointment, and their sound is not "that band" anymore.

The danish band Mercenary did that (in my opinion at least). They had GREAT albums, then the lead singer, keyboard player and the drummer quit. The singer nowadays have no chance to sing most of the older songs, so they are not playing them live anymore, and going from a fresh melodic death metal sound, they now sound like a metalcore band.

In your opinion, what other bands have done the same?

(The two first links is the good version of the band)

I'm sure there are many who like that album, but for me it is so totally un-Mercenary.. Now when the leadsinger is no longer there.. Personally it's just a way to big difference from before and today

Are you seriously suggesting that getting married is "anti-metal"?

Please tell me it was a joke.

I agree with the Mercenary matter, the first band that came to my mind reading this post was Black Tide

I mean, Metallica's the obvious one in my opinion. But on a more relevant and "today" topic, I even know about some local bands in my area that have the same problem. Money is almost always the culprit here. Either the band collectively changes their sound and image to get more money (metallica) OR a member or series of members have to leave due to them not being able to afford being in a band anymore. Or they have to take more hours at their day job and just don't have time to be in a band anymore. That was the case with Nile. Their lead singer left for those exact reasons a few years ago. I know Frank's not with Suffo at the moment. It's fucking hard to be in a band. It's a real labor of love, that's for sure.

When you give all you got in a certain style, it rational to change style in order not to repeat yourself. Fans don't like this, though.
