I have put this thread in 'cause I think it fits into the context. Actually more for fans than weapon-brandishers though …

I voted for the middle. But a better option would have been "very bloody few bands are good, 95% badly fail in their generally welcomed attempt to re-create the 80ies".
We praise the blood that metal brings

Hailz there, Roman!

I made little correction. I returned your vote. I would vote for the third option anyway.

"I don't like them. It would be better if they would stick to sth else altogether. Eighties have gone forever."

How many bands have actually made anything good when they reunites? The only thing I support olds band to the max is their live performances, the chance to see them at last.
Just look at Cloven Hoof, what rubbish, really. As OmenOfSteel says, 95% or less makes anything good.

It seems that it is very easy to lose good feeling at music-making. That's actually very delicate thing. Those people for instance that have went playing strictly for money have all find it very hard to return, even to playing style, let alone to produce sth musically worthwhile. Memory failures also help.

I have decided since some years that the band that i will form(obsctacles continue) it will be totally devoted to 80's from the production/image/cover and many more just wait for a couple of years and you will see! :D

Hey Vaggelis,

we have all your words documented, so don't dissapoint us. :twisted: Don't forget to tell us when you will start i.e. overcome the obstacles.

The fact is that when you wanna form a band like this is extremely difficult in a small city.People that play an instrument and are into 80's sound are very few and that's the main problem.An other problem is that i must buy eventually a worthy guitar and not cheepy ones like Samick(do you suggest something special with 500Euro?)and of course my fetish are Flying V guitars.I have a friend painter who is 27 yo and works for a newspaper and said OK i'll draw you a cover when you need it,Imagine that he can draw an epic painting with great easiness.I have formed some bands before 4-5 years but we were playing mainly covers of known songs.I am oriented in something like HAPPL style traditional HM with keyboards and strange melodies that's what i wanna do.

Agree, totally agree. I'd have problems doing that in my whole country. So I decided to go internationally, if rather slowly. :wink:

I also have this problem. I live in a small town were I am the only one who listens to Real Metal except of some older ones who just remember their times when they listened to Saxon, Priest and Maiden.
My Bandmates in "Einsatzkommando" live a lot of kilometres away what makes it very dificult to rehearse. I also have another band with members not too far away but they are not really into Obscure Metal at all...

I don't know why he isn't registered.
Holocaust is some years old, I don't really know why everyone likes the song :lol:
I would prefer to hear "Satanic Pride is such a great song" 'cause it's my fave :D

AH Ok, Witchräper told me of a guy who said that but he did not remember everything. I told Uwe from Chörnyj about that plan and he didn't knew that you wanted to it :lol: So maybe that was the problem with these guys
