The cries from old… ahem more mature metalheads like myself might suggest metal or hard rock music is dead. The influx of newer metal acts, save Ghost, just doesn’t excite me all that much and my wish is that musicians start returning to the sound of old. Yep, I’m definitely showing my age, but that’s okay. The bands I listened to coming out of high school and college had more promise and in my opinion, still kick more ass than any of these so called newer generation acts do. And hey, I’ve got bands like Prong to back up my claim.
