Yeah, I understood what he meant, but he's wrong on all counts. He's just reacting to the band's increased popularity.

In Solitude's fanbase seems to be pretty diverse. Equal mix of older and younger folks, with pretty varied tastes. Can't generalize about it too much. On the other hand, Watain's fanbase is pretty predictable. A lot of them are quite young, and Watain was/is their gateway into black metal. They also tend to attract a lot of silly groupies and fans who seem preoccupied with fashion/aesthetics/posturing. At the show the other night, there were multiple people in the crowd wearing Watain-esque facepaint.

Watain fan in 2013 = Cradle of Filth/Dimmu Borgir fan in 1999.

Alright. Well, anyways. Now you can see In Solitude open for Cradle in 2014... the future in mainstream metal is still laughable.

Using that logic...
Watain fan today = Kidz Bop fan in 1999

Further proof that the mere mention of Wxxxxn can ruin any thread. Let's keep the discussion focused on In Solitude.

To some extent yes. I just don't think they deserve all the attention they get. As for Watain I will leave them out of this discussion for respect to IXTAB and his board rules.

Demoniarch, you are a ludicrous space monkey Very Happy

A good solution is to pay less attention yourself. I usually try to forget that 'the metal community' exists. It's pretty easy, actually, and it helps you pay more attention to the music as opposed to all the secondary shit.

Personal identity defense mechanisms... they see themselves in those they are trying to avoid or diss. (a fear of being identified as such themselves? haha)
Life is a reflection, you see in others that which you hate within yourself the most Wink
Then feel the need to make a huge ordeal of it ...some manner of strange denial or absurd over reaction to feel the need to say 'hey I am unique and not like that bla bla bla'

Metal nerds want the black circle of nerdom sealed... no new members allowed I guess Wink


Not everything is an image crisis.

Some might just get annoyed at all the over excitement for something that is not (by obvious personal preferences).

Nothing wrong with that.

I don't pay attention comrade, but when it's kind of in your face it's hard not to. I just feel there are far more better bands that deserve more attention and more credit. Pentacle are a band that shoots up to the top of that list. I will never knock a band for gaining fame that is not the catalyst for my comment. I just feel that In Solitude are mediocre at best and shouldn't be revered so much.

Like many others here, I see myself...


But probably more like this in all reality... you know, metal head and record collecting and forum proclamations on what band is what this year is hardly dangerous...
