im sure the first thing all of you will think of when i say this is Metallica, they were punk...straight up at first, now there the heavy hitting metal band everyone knows of.

what do you guys think of bands changing their style?

i got the warped tour 2003 compilation cd and was really surprised when i hared "darkness surrounding" by avenged sevenfold, this was obvisioly a very early song based on the recording and the sheer sound of it, i really liked it compared to the new stuff!!!

so what do you guys think?

metallica was punk? i always thought they started thrash then went to hard rock, silly me.
anyways, i don't mind it as long as the new sound is an improvement over the old

I don't mind it. Band's can't play the same stuff over and over again. Look at what happened to Dragonforce. Musical evolution is almost always good, IMO.

Metallica was never, ever punk. Sorry.

I think bands should write fresh material that doesn't sound like their last album. If I wanna hear metallica's fist album, I'll put it on. I don't need a back catalog of fourteen albums that all sound the same
like slayer.

It can be a good thing and a bad thing depending on your personal taste, i personaly prefer propagandhi's last 3 (more thrashy) albums over the 1st 2 more pop punky ones.
Where as i prefer say alkaline trio's 1st couple of albums over their newer more polished and IMO totaly over produced albums.

um...I dont think metallica was ever punk...I'm pretty sure metallica < isn't really a punk name at all even....I also think that many documentaries and interviews with the band would say they were punk either...actually I don;t think any do.....someone didn't do much research...

I like it to be honest, as long as they don't sell out. My favourite band is Bon Jovi and they've changed there style constantly over the years and i've liked every reincarnation (wasn't as keen on their Hair Metal days as their hard rock and acoustic stuff though).

There new album is thrashy though as in it fits the characteristics of thrash ( a few songs at least).
Sig space available, give me some praise

RHCP had a pretty drastic style change over the years, changing from their WTF funk/hard rock style to a melodic poprock style.

Towers of London were punk, now there (horrrible!) pop.
its kind of ironic, they had a song called kill the pop scene.
Why are you reading this?

Ac/DC had a bit of a change as well, from the bleusy Bon Scot era to the more hardrock Brian Johnson style.

Usually when a singer changes, major changes will happen.

Also, Guns N' Roses (damn, Appetite for Destruction is an awesome album).
#24
haha yea definately man!!!

and that was one of the first things i thought of, ac/dc....its too bad bon died haha what a terrible way to die choking on your own puke......

and yea i know...for some reason when a singer changes everyone thinks they need to change for them...no you invited them in now they should mold themselvs to fit your style musically, unless everyone agrees its time for a chang or whatever....

but ive also thought of this

i have alot of musical inflences in the music i listen to...from pop/punk to metal core do hardcore to inde....what would happen if there was a band that played about everry style i juts listed? would they make it if every song was influenced that differently? would the music community accept them?
