Whenever I try to find new bands and artists to check out when I browse Itunes, I can’t really find much of anything that I liked. The reason is the music industry is getting worse. I try my best to find good new music that I think I might like. The reason it’s getting harder to find good new rock & metal music is ’cause the industry is still hung up on pop, rap and country. The industry wants you to forget that rock and metal is still around.
With that being said, I do find some good music in the rock and metal genres in the 2000’s years and up to today. I have discovered these new bands that I happen to like, though: Greta Van Fleet, Trivium, Mastodon, Opeth, Abbath, Ensiferum, Amon Amarth, Ghost, Gojira and bands such as those.
Other than that it is getting tougher trying to find music that is really good but I loved those bands that I listed.
Maybe it’s because I haven’t been keeping up with the rock and metal industry is why. I think I really need to keep up with it more ’cause admittedly I’m not that crazy about today’s industry so I lost interest. I always do try to check out new bands, though and some of the bands I listed above are what I recently discovered. I always try to keep up with music the best I can.
I love listening to other people’s music and supporting other bands/artists. It’s always been a huge part of me.
