Anyways, you guys should look and "PornGrind" or whatever. Just look at the band Torso****, that's a hard way to make money with music...

The thing is, though, metal bands almost never need session guys. They're usually self funded and self distributed. It's hard for metal bands to get picked up on labels.

Most genre's do, but it's really hard to stand out as a metal band to people who don't normally listen to metal.

No offense, but you can replace Metal with "Punk", "Rock", etc. and still have those statements be completely true. It all depends on the area and so on.

I think no matter what you play the chances of you getting anywhere i so minimal its unbelievable. It sounds very discouraging and negative I know, but its the truth and I don't need to have been trying professionally for 10+ years to tell you that.

What is success to you anyway? Finance or satisfaction? You can be satisfied with what you do even if you're not earning big amounts or getting the recognition you think you deserve.

If you take music as a profession then its an industry and you're lucky if you're accepted into the business, and even luckier if you don't need to be accepted.

If you never try you'll never know, all I'm saying.

rap.

****in simple music anyone can make. it's just talking over some shitty computer-generated drums and piano. they don't even play instruments, so they aren't musicians. they can't really be called "artists" either because they do not make art.
do you think van gogh would have been successful if he just painted pictures of money, *****s, and shoes? no he wouldn't have. he made true art.

It's all about supply and demand. There are certain genres that have a very large demand, but a very large supply as well. This would be stuff like "pop" music. On the other hand, there are some types of music with very low demand, but very low supply. This would be stuff like very niche styles of music, particularly in EDM and extreme metal.

As a result, even though more bands make it playing pop than say brutal death metal, there isn't necessarily a higher chance of success.

Really though, genre isn't as important as instrument. Playing upright bass for example is not particularly common, so a skilled upright bassist will have a comparatively easier time finding constant work playing jazz, rockabilly, bluegrass, etc.

This is even more true with incredibly niche instruments like pedal steel guitar. This goes back to my first point as well. While there is a very low demand for pedal steel guitar (an ever decreasing demand in pop "country" and a still continuous demand in contemporary country (alt country and murder swing, for example) as well as more traditional country acts), but there is an even smaller number of skilled players around, so a proficient steeler will always be able to find work.

And of course location is very important. Most large cities have decent scenes for most genres, though some are more famous for certain genres. Some major music cities in the US for example are LA, NYC, Chicago, St Louis, Austin, Kansas City, Nashville, New Orleans, Detroit, etc.

Also "music career" is extremely vague.

Presently, I would say jazz. And I think TS means mainstream as in the household name bands such as RHCP, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, etc. I would say any genre that has only caters to a select group (prog) is going to have a tough time finding mainstream success.

I don't respect prog-metal.

Any prog past Rush is pointless. Rush were gay and killed it, but at least some people can let it rest. It had its heyday and now it's just another silly, recycled, derivative ghost of what it once was.
