        The second vid has a severe case of "I refuse to watch thanks to obnoxious face thumbnail" syndrome.

          Oh, you need to watch though cause it's full of "metal face = ImmaDork" shots. Music is heavy, playing is cool, but the guy looks about as metal as the field of flowers scene in the Sound of Music...

            Djent's favorite Tryhard.

            Everyone shits on 80's hair and glam bands for looking ridiculous, but at least they did it to play clubs and get chicks. Imagine havnig a time machine and telling 80's Nikki Sixx that 30 years later people would make this face, by themselves, for internet clicks from strangers while miming pre-recorded guitar lines. Furiously rocking away like he's playing Madison Square Garden in front of his desk full of pens and leftover snacks, "stage" lights and all.

            Hair and glam didn't kill metal. It even survived nu-metal and the Fred Durst/311 era of awfulness. But when metal eventually goes the way of disco and people wonder what happened, I'm pointing my finger at the miming, profiteering, gear-flipping, endlessly "endorsing", influencer-face generation as the ones that ruined it all.

                Maybe it sucks because it’s an 8 string guitar..

                    On a positive note, is that an Ibanez Destroyer? It looks nice.

                      Well, OK.

                      One is an example of an actual band playing actual songs in front of actual people. The other is an example of an extended marketing campaign, and apparently no song was harmed in making the video, because I didn't hear one.

                        If all you do is sit at your computer on Youtube, you'll only see the second and think that's the metal scene. Go to shows, start a band, play in dive bars, get a mosh pit of 4 people going and see what it feels like when that crowd grows to 15 or 300 or 2000.

                        The club scene in the 70s and 80s was clearly superior, but there is good rock and metal that still exists, but it's better live than on youtube.

                        Also, for modern heavy - Dyscarnate is my go to. I need to see this band live so badly:

                          Now, what are the odds the dude didn't punch in each individual harmonic in that riff?

                                  He's twice the man Nikki will ever be. Maybe even three times the man. Possibly four more Twinkies away from being four times the man.

                                        once you've done your time in the mines, you can retire to being a bedroom warrior. these dudes who pick up a guitar in their bedroom, and then decide that they'd rather make content for YouTube that no one will watch versus going out and being on stage confound me. granted, no one will watch you on stage either, but at least it's fun and you're using your gear and skills towards creating art, yaknow? people still listen to Holocaust now 40 years later. will people be watching your YT video demoing IRs 40 years from now?

                                                I'll take partial blame. Djent is my fault, but demo-core came way after me.
