MAKE METAL GREAT AGAIN!
BUYING CD’S, FRIENDSHIP, METAL MANIACS
There is a real paradox of "new fans of Metal/Rock" with the attitudes and thoughts of the old Metal / Rock bands as well as old fans era 80’s/90’s lived your life for Metal, which has been lost a lot since the 80's and 90's, there were people buying albums from big bands but also from small bands and still the sale of Demo-tapes was in great demand. The consumption of merchandise was extraordinary; people bought because they loved the bands and did their best to support each band.
People bought because they loved the bands and did their best to support each band.
In the question itself, you have the answer. How many CDs do you buy per month? In how many gigs of new bands are you going? Before we distributed flyers and nowadays are the posts on social networks, is there anything that each one does to help the bands?
There is also a lack of connection and even lack of awareness to support the new bands, when you see the tools of FACEBOOK and other sites, the number of clicks, sharing is very low, the relevance in this shows that the love of the music (Metal / Rock in general) itself, is decayed and isolated in the shadows.
This post will NOT change almost anything, because we are not a great Media for thousands to hear, our circle are of a small group of people, however Facebook gives us the chance to post our opinions and thoughts and who knows, some people will want listen to what we're talking about.
More people who lived the beginning of Metal could tell their stories and I say, the important people should leave their statements in order to increase the knowledge of the people who are in Metal Scene nowadays, and make the Metal great again!
United We Stand, Divided We Fall.
