12:35 - Bad English I agree whit MH, about HM scene, its not dead and new bands born
12:18 - Marcel Hubregtse HM scene hasn't dried out. Bands such as Bullet, Dead Lord, High SPirits, Night Demon, Skull Fist. Striker draw loads mor epeople to their gigs than black metal bands, doom bands, thrash bands.
12:14 - Cynic Metalhead Nope. New bands not bringing any 'originality' factor in it. Simple. Another reason could be HM scene is dried out. Absolute dried out.
11:39 - LuciferOfGayness One of my guesses is that all the cool kids prefers other genres. When/if they start playing hm again the originality will reappear
11:37 - Captain Obvious To put it simply: The torch is burning out because no one else is being allowed to carry it.
11:28 - Captain Obvious 2 things: The scene peaked a long time ago, and newer bands were never getting a push by promoters/labels. Your usual headliners are the same as they were 25 years ago.
11:17 - Cynic Metalhead The only heavy metal band that's churning out quality records is Accept.
