Is it just me or is everyone sort of burned out on metal right now? Cosmo wrote about his time away from metal, Shelby mentioned some metal burnout, and personally, I haven’t listened to anything expect awesome tapes from Africa in weeks (for lazier bros, feel free to take this shortcut to African awesomeness, as filtered by the hearse).

I don’t know, I guess it makes sense. I think it was Frank Zappa who said volume is exhausting. I feel that way. I also get sick of metal drumming. Anyone else dig that? I know in my band I’m always like, dudes, can we NOT have some drums for a few minutes? I mean, seriously, dooka dacka, dooka dacka, dooka dacka, I’m over it. I put on some Deep Purple the other day after about two weeks of nothing but early Darkthrone and was like waaaaaaaaaah? You can do WHAT with drums? Holy shit, I forgot about that.

How do you guys feel about this? Are you experiencing some burnout right now? Are you going through a German Techno phase or downloading all the Master P records you remember from middle school?



(or not)

That reminds me I need to get my new library card for some more sheet music.

I was working on a music project that was like "metal without drums" but I am too lazy to finish anything I start besides a fifth of whiskey.

Fuck, you had me there for a minute.

Ha. I was totally just reading that article Cosmo wrote the other day, but accidentally lost all interest when he started talking about the six years he spent as a drum & bass DJ. Oops.

I totally traded in my dooka dacka for some OOONCE OOONCE years ago.

Not really. I just don't listen to Darkthrone generally. Xerxes and shit is the stuff I listen to daily, not 'EXTREME METAL FROM HELL'.
