I don't know what I'm doing sometimes.
what is with these hearts tho
It can only work to a certain degree, when you still have creativity within that sound without bringing in outside influences. Bands like Faith No More and Deftones work, because they’re constantly expanding their boundaries and sound, but the bands that stick to the same old sound can either be a hit or miss.
Slayer has been basically the exact same band since they started, but many fans agree their best material was either in the 80s or early to mid 90s, with the rest having bright spots but not being consistent albums, whereas bands like The Dillinger Escape Plan only expanded a -little- to include influences from other bands, but majorly stays the same release to release, and it works for them because they’re still brilliant songwriters and immensely talented for the mathcore genre.
When you buy a DEP album without hearing it, you know it’s gonna be a guy screaming at you over complicated riffs, but you know it’s gonna be good, because they went on brief adventures into outside influences, but mostly stayed the same, which is great, because their first release was in what… 1997? Whenever Calculating Infinity came out, and their newer material, with their latest release being in 2013, is still as vicious as the older material.
At this point, people would be disappointed if they changed up what they did, while some other bands keep doing the same shit over and over (All Time Low) with every album sounding like rehashed material, a little more watered down each time, even though they were shit to begin with, so…
