.Scissors. said:I can see bands putting alot more melody into their music. Bands that incorporate many different styles into their music will surely push the boundaries and create new genres. Anyone that tries anything new, really. In the mainstream, Headbangers' Ball scene I think when the metalcore trend dies out, melodic death metal will move in.
Guardian of Darkness said:DM is pretty stagnant, the only band still stretching things is The Chasm. Bands like, Arghoslent, Vore and Immolation will probably release more good stuff, but none of them have done anything really groundbreaking in recent times (or in some cases, at all).
Cryptkeeper said:Leviathan. Wrest has released 2 amazing albums in The Tenth Sub Level of Suicide and Tentacles of Whorror. I expect more amazing things from the genius that is Leviathan.
Azrael. Same as Leviathan, they have released 2 amazing albums in Into Shadows Acts I and II. True innovaters in the BM scene.
The problem is, most bands who DO continue to send out albums become horrible. They have nothing left to do. Might as well leave on a good note, no?J Mann said:If bands like that would stay around for longer than one full-length then perhaps DM as a genre could have to time to absorb and be influenced by such an innovative take on the genre.

On the subject of Black Metal: fucking stop.
On the subject of Power Metal: Go back to how it was in the 80's NOW.
