17:25 - Apothecary I definitely would not say that sludge is the "hot new trend" within metal. If anything, that's deathcore and the recent ramp up of all the pseudo-intellectual "progressive" death metal
17:23 - BlackEssence But it's true. 5 years ago I just know couple of band playing that kind of music. Now - everyone is playing it. Because why? They have no money for good guitars and amps?
17:21 - Apothecary I don't often respond to comments with memes, but that last one calls for it [link]
17:16 - BlackEssence Sludge is some kind of nu metal now. Everyone want to play it and be "so sludge". It's stupid trend.
17:09 - Apothecary I think it works both ways, really
16:31 - Kuroboshi Well, isn't it so that the fans usually vote first, and then other people also start looking into the album and don't give it as high votes, thus bringing it down.
15:48 - Apothecary Could be, I don't underestimate the degree to which people sometimes downvote shit on here to appear edgy though
