02:21 - ANGEL REAPER Thing is myhem lost main music man and the rest of bunch just decided to continue .... and they do poor job anyway ....
02:21 - !J.O.O.E.! Yeah especially if you get attached to a certain sound or approach they had.
02:20 - snake? snaaaake! For better or worse, I'd much prefer bands trying different sounds, but sometimes when listen to a new release by a band I like, there's often this annoying bias that wouldn't be there if I hadn't heard the band before
02:15 - !J.O.O.E.! I guess the difference with Mayhem is that they went even more extreme and unusal, whereas most bands jump on a more mainstreamed or watered down sound.
02:14 - snake? snaaaake! It's funny, bands that have been around for a while often get criticised for changing their sound but at the same time get stick for not changing things up
