    Shouldn´t you be mad at the consumers of $****ty music rather than the people producing it? The music industry gives the masses what they want and that is generic, easy to digest pop.

    I'm really confused by the point of this thread.

    Are you saying that song, which I turned off after 3 seconds, should be praised as much as Thriller?!?!

    I'll be the first to hate on today's mainstream music, but it's ****ing Thriller!

    all I'm saying is there is a ton of different music out there, and a tiny portion gets pushed on people. ... and I do mean pushed.

    I wasn't even hyping candlemass, just happened to be listening to them at the moment

    Oh, in that regard, I absolutely 100% agree.

    Never said they were the best of all time, but ... making a dent in record sales means absolutely zero to me, and should to anyone else who loves music. Is that really your criteria for good music? Or even part of it?

    Did you eat paint chips as a kid? Nobody said they were the "greatest band of all time", and even fewer people have ever classified Candlemass as having "elite" guitar playing.

    Yeah, the guitar playing is pedestrian, but the mood is cool, and some great vocals over the years.

    Metal needs to stay unpopular. Otherwise you end up with the 80s and Enter Sandman. If Candlemass made a hit tune, you know Sony/BMG would be lining up some obscure death metal band to write songs with Desmond Child.

    If you like Candlemass, other than the bands you mentioned you really ought to check out Solitude Aeturnus, which is where the lead vocalist from the last 3 Candlemass albums came from. I'll check out your recommendations now. Already have them ready.

    Which is why the music industry can go to hell.

    I think now that music doesn't need to be physically distributed, the old model is dead, and the record companies should die.

    There is very little money actually needed to produce a decent CD or digital album now. Because people are so different, and WOULD have such disparate taste if they weren't so easily influenced by trends ... hey what's trending on #TWITTER now???? ... there really should be a lot more bands with smaller followings but able to make a living and perpetuate their art, yet still find an audience.

    And I really respect Shamrocked, but FUK Michael Jackson and that garbage. Shammy, when was the last time you listened to Thriller? Was it awesome?
