Right. So we're likely in for quite a downturn as far as live DM goes. 5-10 years from now.

If you guys are honest with yourselves you'd all acknowledge the pink elephant that's in the room:

Scenebands will take over and real Death Metal will be forced to try and tag along.

Ive never heard of any of those bands except primal fear. you dont get it, the thread isnt about replacing as in being a musical copy of the bands, its about being as big as those bands were when the were/are still active, crowd-wise

I tend to see Necrophagist as the new Death, as in the band is pretty much where death left off but a lot more brutal, maybe Im crazy but I see a huge resemblance between those two. Please keep Behemoth out of this, they are so going downhill IMO, whoever doesnt think their latest albums are nile copycats is friggin deaf.

Pfft.

You know I'm right. Comparing Necrophagist to Death is like comparing Kenneth Eng to Tolkien. I'll let you figure that one out for yourself.

Necrophagist is the new Death.
Just like Lamb of God is the new Megadeth.
That's the changing of the guard for you.

I dont know what exactly will happen in 10 years or so, but I know that we keep getting better and better offers for touring. And if there is a way to make this pay the bills and love what I do at the same time... that would kick ass! Whether or not you think my music is original, I put my heart in to it. And trust me, I'm not compromising... I'm just playing what comes natural. Also, we're not trying to out do the classic bands, or take their place in anyway.

agreed, the Dimmus, Bodoms, In Flames etc of the last generation of "more mainstream" metal is being replaced by the "scenier" metal bands. There will always be an underground for the good stuff, but like said, they'll have to try and tag along, or just have their own miniscule tours/shows.

I can't think of anyone to fill their shoes, and thus see a "depression" in the DM world coming in 5-10 more years.

Of course, the situation could change entirely by then.
Oh ok, I thought you liked the band, sorry for the misunderstanding.
I do think you are right when you see a depression coming up.
And the comments about deathcore and stuff, shit is quit huge, I start to notice it as well in Europe. A lot of bands and fans, hhhmm.

I think Mastodon are the new Metallica, or if not the new Metallica then they are gonna be the front runners of the scene for a while. As for DM, I'd go for TBDM, Decrepit Birth and Psycroptic to have an impact myself.

The bands you mentioned will not be "replaced." No one is going to write a new Pierced from Within or a new Covenant, a new Close to a World Below, etc... these are legendary bands for a reason; because their music is timeless. New bands have come along and written amazing albums, but they have done it on the shoulders of other bands, just as those other bands did it on the shoulders of their heroes. The evolution of underground music is just that, evolution, not about what's hot and what's not. That's reserved for the realm of pop music, which can suck my hairy ass.

And yeah everything I've said has probably already been said in this thread, but whatever.

hmm. I'm with you up till the highlighted part which exists in total denial of the fact even the underground is subject to trendiness and influence from pop music, hence the explosion of shitty scene crossover DM.

Sorry but Scenemetal will dominate, infect 95% of even the most underground DM, and the few real bands will be left trying to scrounge. Same as "true die-hard" thrash in 1997.

I still can't believe Lamb of God blew up like they did.

I'll admit, I was a fan of the Burn the Priest cd and the first 2 LoG cd's 6 years ago or so, but man... signing to epic? mass appeal? did not see that one coming.

Blasting Entombed as we speak! But it was a different time at the time, dm wasn't really defined yet, the bands just tried to do what they see as death metal. There was a vague line, but still just trying out. At least, that's what I think.

In case you didn't notice, they already took slam over ages ago, brutal dm is being taken over as we speak and it is huge dude! Even in Europe, we didn't had that stuff 3 years ago. Before you know it, they claim to be death metal!

I see, hope they just get a decent sound at least guitarwise.
Now that I thinik of it, the sound was ok for HE on their DVD. The DVD is nice I must say, but live, uhm, well, they really need to make the guitars more audible so it doesn't sound like a wall of shit.

Also, why does HE have 2 guitarists now? It's unnecessary as far as I've heard. I'm not a fan of his productions or what HE does most of the time, but hey, at least it's death metal and he didn't go scene.
