This probably isn't in the right forum (so don't correct me, I already know. I don't care wwhere it goes). I have a question. I am the main songwriter for this band I'm forming. I have about an hour of material and about 17-22 songs written. And this was all done in about 4-5 months. Is it possible that I am running short on ideas only temporarily? Also, how long do you guys spend writing a song? And how do I come up with riffs that are new to my ear? If you answer any of these questions I'll appreciate it alot.

(in case you didn't get the hint... I'm in a thrash band.)

(also, what kind of rhythms are typical in thrash) (I know dozens of bands and have dozens of albums but what makes it thrash?)
