okay, i'm sorry. i guess i just wanna know why you think music culture is so terrible?
Too broad a question. I’ll try and list the biggest problems with contemporary western music culture in no particular order.
PR Cycles, and their influence on “news” and “review” sites
entitlement culture inherent in listeners who want something for free but want it to have the kind of value and utility art you pay for does
sound guys who look at something that isn’t a guitar/bass/ or drum set and their brain melts down. sound guys who see a woman playing an instrument and can’t fathom how to treat her with dignity or do their fucking job.
lying labels, “advances” that are high interest loans, labels that have you do work “on spec”.
booking agencies that think $150 per show for a touring, traveling band is feasible and they think the band should be grateful to get payed slave wages
listeners who think that artists who give their music away for free owe them every second of their day to answer their inane, google-able questions about shit that does not matter.
the “hype cycle” and how artists are forced to appease people who do not matter (i.e. journalists, pr shills, magazines, dying dinosaur industry bullshitters) just to get their records heard on the same level as other (rich) artists.
that’s the tip of the iceberg. it goes all the way to hell and back. it’s a twisted, fucked up, pointless game unless you were born rich…then it’s just a hobby!

HARDCORE FOR HARDCORE. WORLD VIEW NAIL EVERYTHING MANY BANDS BEFORE THEM HAVE ATTEMPTED, FROM THE HAIRCUTS TO THE SHOELACES. PICK A BRAND THAT’S HAD A FANATICAL FOLLOWING IN OZHC IN THE LAST TEN YEARS AND THEY’LL BE WEARING IT. FFO: THE NORTH FACE
FASTER THAN A SPEEDING BULLET, MORE PISSED OFF THAN YOU WERE THAT TIME YOU FOUND OUT YOUR LITTLE BROTHER ATE THE REST OF YOUR BIRTHDAY CAKE. FFO: SHAMPOO COMMERCIALS, S&P TOFU, CRAFT BEERS.
THE COOPER TWINS HAVE TAKEN THEIR HAND TO PLAYING RIFFS THAT MAKE YOU WANT TO PUT AN AXE THROUGH YOUR OWN SKULL. TRAVIS IS AN ANGRY, ANGRY MAN. FFO: MOSH RIFFS WITHOUT BRO EGOS.
BLACKENED METALCORE FOR FANS OF OATHBREAKER, DEAFHEAVEN, GETTING YOUR SOUL CRUSHED, WATCHING ANIME. DON’T MISS THESE NEWCOMERS.
