Analog is the way to go. I think the CD & the digital format just don't fit with the metal scene. It also keeps posers away from some releases. I never saw someone who listen mainstream metal buying an audio cassette or LP.

Tapes are perfect for split and demo.
LP are perfect for full-lenght album.

Same here. There's a certain nostalgic aspect with cassette tapes that a CD-R cannot replace. However, I don't think of the CD-R format any less. Actually, nowadays, I prefer the latter.

I like tapes. They have their own quality, but I don't care about them as a status symbol. All it takes is money and a place to buy them. Nothing cult about that really. Take what you get, and if you find a cool tape, buy it and listen to it and keep your mouth shut. heh. Beside that, I do like putting compilation tapes together from time to time. You put it into your tape player and have to listen to where it's at for the most part. No skipping around.

The funniest phenomenon I can think about when it comes to "sticking to analog" is labels and bands that make their tape releases by copying the music form a master CD-R to tapes.
Yeah, sure, once it's tape - it's not the same music that was on that DIGITAL cd format it was copies from Laughing
Anyway, I still buy some demos and some full lengthes as on tapes form time to time, but the tape format is my last priority after vinyl and cd...

this also has to do with the matter of ""no more double decks" ... enterprises only makes big ones, and not the smallest as in the past...

even in some day, maybe they will stop to produce it...

actually the same applies to vinyl if it comes from a DAT tape or cd-r, which I guess is the case for 99% of vinyls today.

It reminds me when you got 20th generation tape copies of some demos ten years ago, it didn't sound too good...

True. That's why I think that it's stupid to by stuff like recent DESTRUCTION or HAIL OF BULLETS stuff on vinyl. It's like alcohol-free beer - same bottle, different (fake!) content...
