Can't deny this @Maturin. I find it a pity that this band with such cool music does all this other crap, though. Music is mega important, it is most important, but when all other elements are so obstinately in service of wanting to be part of a genre that has no own musical identity I can't like them much. Wannabee sheep mentality. The music itself is not different from other subgenres so the genre itself is a plastic fake (news) genre. I also disagree with your negative view on metal bands and audiences. Largely exaggerated. Metal audiences are extremely relaxed compared to all other genres. That's a very intolerant view. Sort of the world upside down. Dress up (very much please) or else you are not into your music. And don't make it worse: do not make your lyrics too complicated or poetic. Because you are not a poet.
