Question Where have all the grooves gone?

Howcome bands seem to be set on trying to make all these big epic albums with long drawn out songs and orchestral pieces and trying to blend in some deep philosophical message? What happened to simply having guitar-bass-drums and a good riff on a 3 minute track?

Pantera made them gay.

You're listening in the wrong places, my friend. "All bands" don't do epic orchestrations.

I'd go further and say that you're listening to the wrong genre. None of my favorite punk rock bands have a problem keeping it at 3 minutes or less

Posts like theese depress me. You guys know so much about technology and how to use Internet and crazy shit, and can't even find the type of bands you're looking for. If you want I'll PM you a list of literally 100 bands or more you could check out that fit your description, and chances are you'll love them.

Seriously, RIDICULOUS. Damn.

ok well, i was talking about metal bands recent material, specifically the big names, a good example would be iron maiden. im not saying the last album was bad, but wtf. now lets see, megadeths upcoming album, iced earths, manowars recent, and im pretty sure the new priest will fit in here aswell.

There's a pretty simple solution: If you don't like the direction those bands are taking, don't listen to them.

Yeah, not all. Just all the good ones.
haha, even I know that statement is completely false. Even me, a fond listener of epic power metal, have often been annoyed by pointless bombast (cough cough Rhapsody and bands of the like), and often do enjoy listening to simpler music.
