True. Maybe the band was thinking about the change before that but I know Dime's death was what made them decide to change. It was the better decision musically though since it got them noticed more. They're a Jager band now and usually get a spot on that stage at a few of the Mayhem fests every year. So whatever the reasons really were it worked out better for them.

A friend of mine who was friends with the band also hung out with them and Dimebag that night. He told me that knowing they were among the last to share the stage, hang out and party with Dime before he died had a very deep impact on the band. I understand that completely and get why the change was made.

Blood Scent by Stemm is better than anything slipknot has done and is better than Rob Zombie solo.

Stemm and Yesterday suck hard, bro.

I dont think those bands are that great either but they are part of his local metal scene, and even if it sucks I respect it when people try to get the word out about little known bands.

You know, I've never understood this. Why do I have to like shitty bands because they're from the same place I'm from? Every scene seems to have this "SUPPORT LOCAL MUSIC" ethic where everyone is equal, and that's just not how it is.

I'm sure if Indestructible dug a little deeper, there's some good Buffalo bands. You don't have to like something that you wouldn't like if it was from somewhere else just because it's local. (Not the case with him, I know; he eats this shit up.)

You think it's annoying as a listener? Try having to deal with this set of attitudes/ethics as a member of a band.

I never understood that idea either. I don't like Stemm or HNMY because they're from here nor do I think I have to like them at all. I just happen to think they got some decent material and that's it. A few people I know who are on the street team of Stemm invited me to one of their shows with HNMY two years ago and I dug both bands. I don't listen to them a ton nor do I go to see every show they play around here because that would get boring quickly. I saw them a few times each on their last touring cycle and i'll probably see them a few times this go around and that'll be it.

The reason a lot of metal fans in the region know who they are is because they're the only two metal bands to make any kind of buzz around the local scene in a very long time.

I had no idea this thread was gonna spawn this long of a discussion

Agree 100%. I support good bands, not local bands. I've only ever seen like 1 local band that was worth a shit.

Dayton has a TON of local bands I like and actually actively listen to at home; Bloomington has been mostly disappointing in that regard.
