I'm having a hard time believing in the future of music now with the autotune and sampling and shit. It requires absolutely no talent to record a decent sounding song these days and making it a huge hit.

What gets me about underground bands is so many of them sound like carbon copies of other bands. You can take about half of those independent symphonic black metal bands and put them on the same cd and it would just sound like it's the same band. Do you ever think every melody, beat, riff, lyric idea has been used over a million times before and that there is no more room for originality?

It's always been the same way. Every generation has far more "carbon copy" artists than original artists. Nothing new here other than technology.

Ulver - Blood Inside / Perdition City


Ulver was my first thaught when I saw this thread ; - ) A great example of valuable music made with modern technologies.

There are lots of great, new bands out there, you just have to search a bit deeper. The best album of 2009 is IMO Animals as leaders - a milestone for the Djent movement, it's like mixing Meshuggah with Planet X, and some contemporary jazz. A breeze of fresh air ; - )

Even black metal merges and blends with other styles lately ex. Agalloch (Black/Post - Metal), Ashes against the grain is quite good compared to their older recordings (cant beat The Mantle though...)
Gear:

I think now, more than ever with the widespread use of the ultimate source of knowledge that is the internet, original music has a chance to be made.
