  • manosg Definitely. It's bound to blow up sooner or later because it's not only the stoner scene that's become saturated, it's the whole '70s revival thing that's become very trendy (ugh). However, some those who have strong writing skills and perseverance will survive. The others better not quit their morning job. Personally, I wouldn't be able to do this job, man; too much insecurity and rejection. But I admire those who persevere so hats off to you my friend!

  • manosg And people are trying to fuse their sound with different elements in order to distinguish themselves such as post rock, extended jams, etc. And the thing is that when I listen to an album I like it but rarely go back to it. For example, I checked a band called Mount Hush the other day and it reminded me of Nightstalker, which I love. But I don't think that I'll check their EP again in the future even though I definitely enjoyed it. I'm wondering if the scene has become a bit saturated.

  • manosg I've tried Vaenir but didn't do much for me. The thing is, I'm not so much into distorted vocals and such heavy distortion on the guitars. The outcome is heavy no doubt, but on both instances it's like talking with full mouth to my ears haha. That's the reason I never go so much into Electric Wizard too. I like my doom a bit more old school, I guess. Going back to our discussion about the stoner scene, it seems that every other day a new band appears.

  • manosg Definitely, it would be great! But trying to make a name for yourselves in the modern rock/metal scene has to be an incredibly interesting experience. I was reading today an interview by Rotting Christ and how they were trying to become more well known throughout Europe during the '90s. It was pretty brutal man and it has to be more or less the same today because on the one hand you have technology to help you but competition is even more fierce.
