hard is getting old but it stays in our hearts...
Hard is the future, not with that name but with all of these different feelings(with "new styles") but i don't think that we'll find legends like maiden metallica, dream theater.... bands which have influenced the world, a population.. Actually, the new bands follow the fashion, tastes so much. i think that the mentalities are changed then the music follows.......
i would disagree with you there
i think that legends like maiden will appear in these new genres
why do i feel this way
you say that these new bands follow the trends
that is true
however even hard rock/heavy metal in its earliest days were just a bunch of groups giving people what was in at the time
harder, faster and louder music
when the trends changed some bands decided to follow it some decided to stick with their original genres
both of this two flows produced giants
if you want a trendy one take a look at motley crue or guns and roses
nobody can take the legendary status away from them regardless of their own personal feelings about them
and if you want the one that stayed true to their gerne there are maiden, metallica(in its early days), deep purple, sabbath
so these new trendy genres will produce legends
the only problem is that most metal fans dont really like the idea of future of metal depending on the bands like linkin park
