Running Wild, Emperor, Enslaved, Bishop of Hexen, Angel Witch, Brocas Helm- I never thought I would see all these bands in a videogame soundtrack- they must have done some serious research.

the game looks lame....too cartoony looking. I didn't know the soundtrack was going to be this 'metal'. I thought it would just have Dio/Sabbath and the usual shit on it.

Still, Im not going to buy a shitty looking game just for the soundtrack. Might as well just throw on the records themselves.

yeah, the soundtrack does look surprisingly good. Although, Jack Black, to me is a fucking enemy. He is instigating the commercialism and gentrification of metal, and this is wrong.

Don't get me wrong, it's awesome that there is going to be a game with a soundtrack like that, but its just bringing those bands into homes everywhere, and particularly where they shouldn't be...

Yeah, but I doubt the people that like Jack Black are of the right frame of mind to appreciate the good metal on there. They will probably just think it is 'noise' and then put on their Tenacious D albums to soothe their tiny brains.

Well I think metal is going to be the next big thing. With guitar hero, rockband, and this, metal is going to become very commercial. My cousin who is in High School tells me that many people in his school listen to bands like Sonata Arctica and Dragonforce, and there is a growing fanbase for bands like Mayhem(they're "extreme"), Emperor, Entombed, and Death. That's why I'm trying to complete my collection ASAP- the flood is coming. With the Swedish Death Metal book everyone knows about Mefisto, and it probably won't be long until Flames of Hell gets big.

wow, someone who has actually used their brain when talking about something like this. I couldn't aggree more, whenever the massaes get a hold of something from the underground, they'll inevitably try to exploit the hell out of it.

I hate to admit it but I think you may be right. In my opinion it all started with 'metalcore', this fad is packaging metal for the masses, which is, at least in my opinion, the exact opposite of what metal stood for in the beginning. As I said before, this gentrification of metal is slowly upon us because of people like Jack Black, and guitar nerds who practice for hours on end and wear girl jeans to be 'manly' and 'get laid'. It's like people forgot why bands like Blasphemy, Beherit and Darkthrone existed.

On a more positive note, I think the natural reaction will be for serious bands to try to create music that can't be gentrified. Stuff like NS, and super lo-fi stuff like Beherit won't every be digested by 'normal people'. I think there is a widespread commercialization of metal, but at the same time, I think, for the people that really care, it will just intensify the importance of the corners of metal that can never be touched by consumers.

or at least I hope...

Exactly. there will be new fair-weather metal fans...mostly kids who hang out at the mall, but real metal will not be touched by them. Even if it is, it won't last and the underground will always be there.

Just like when hair metal got big in the 80's....all the gay bands floated to the top and got rich and begin serious drug addictions, and the good bands released amazing albums that spawned legions of true fans, yet was never heard by the chicks and nancy boys at the Poison and Ratt gigs.

Its nothing to worry about. I doubt we'll be seeing Blasphemy and Sarcofago on Mtv anytime soon.

I find it to be just the opposite judging from my own experiences in high school, many people want to be more extreme than the rest.

Let's not derail the thread though.

At the end of the day it'll open the doors for some people and they will stick to it for the long haul. The others will 'grow out of it'. I can see true, thrash, death and black metal getting big...

However anyone want to believe true doom will? I very much doubt it! I seriously don't imagine seeing an emo wearing a Saint Vitus or Warning shirt anytime soon. Black Sabbath wouldn't be surprising and shit like The Sword (pseudo doom). Remember all those mainstream fagazines making a fuss over 3 Inches of Blood and Cockquest of Steel for their gimmick?

If metal does get bigger than I'd like then fuck it, I'm going to get more neo-folk, noise, power electronics, neo-classical, martial etc. Seriously doubt that'll EVER be big considering its promotion of controversial ideals such as traditionalism, Nietzscheanism, perversion, fetish or at least touching on these subjects. Add to that the music is abrasive or depressing. Not stuff for the mainstream and perhaps among the last truly underground music forms left now from what I can see.

I can see "emo" people liking Warning.

Anyway, metal's mainstream popularity goes in cycles. It just might be reaching a peak of the current cycle. Technology has made it easier for the interest to spread further to the underground. Twenty years ago, a Bon Jovi fan who considered him/herself a metal fan might check out something like Metallica because of the hype they got. Now, a fan of Atreyu who considers him/herself a metal fan can get on the internet and discover bands like Disforterror with ease.

Anyway, if you're so self-conscious about metal being underground that you's start listening to other music more because too many people were getting into metal, you're a trend-hopping poser to the core and should just get the fuck out now.
