I was just listening to Nightbringer's Ego Dominus Tuus and found it utterly boring. To me, it just sounded like an endless sequence of the most tired musical clichés dressed in trending production tropes. There were maybe three riffs that stood out, that's it. Now, is this just me being jaded, having spent most of my life listening to black metal, or are many of these "newer" bands in a serious deficit of proper songwriting?

This most of the time. And I'm not sure you can turn that nagging analytical voice off. Just accept it and maybe try see the band live, it might illuminate something not transferred on record.

Nightbringer is mostly crap, as is most of what WTC puts out.

Listener fatigue is usually a symptom of listening to a band that sucks, like Nightbringer. The remedy is only listening to bands that don't suck.

Err switch genres once in awhile, that does the trick.

In 2014 I had lost a very close family member and as mortality fell on my shoulders like a bag of bricks, I lost interest in everything (including black metal). After being so involved since '01/'02, I didn't give a shit anymore and all of it seemed so boring to me. That lasted over a year, and in the interim I was focused on my career and vicious sex acts lol. I got my taste back after a while though. Point being, if you are experiencing this kind of disinterest with multiple bands, bands that you normally like, then you may have a bigger problem than music. But all that being said, maybe your just not a Nightbringer fan Laughing

Nightbringer is pretty boring, based on the album that I own. Are you experiencing this with any other bands?

When I experience something like this, I just go back to classics or switch genre to something else for a while. Perhaps try something completely different to spice things up?

That being said, Nightbringer is terribly boring to me.

This! It is useless to analyze the situation more than that. Sometimes it's also better try to do something else than listening only music. Read a book, go outside, etc.

agree w/ pursuing other forms of art and entertainment. Sometimes I'd rather start binge watching a TV series, or crush a few films, or speed read a book or hit the beach or whateverthefuck. I also don't give records as many chances as I used to, if it doesn't click no big deal there will be 100 new records next month jocked on here.

I thought this was going to be about engineering or listening to shitty mastering. If a band sucks then don't force yourself to listen to it. That's like trying to jerk off to gay porn. You are not going to like it so quit flogging the rope.

it just show you're a totally sane person. Cause this band is really Nothing else than boredom ... as 99% of bands nowadays. When you look at bands praised nowadays (be it here or anywhere else), you know there's Something wrong !! How many albums over the last 5 years are you listening on a consistent basis ??
Sounds like "it was better in the past" ... but it actually was
