The scene’s almost dying because we are all competing against each other regardless of whatever little number of people our community may be made up of. Either there are bands who are very successful and getting out there or there are bands that are given no chance to prove themselves. The scene needs more new bands being exposed to listeners without them having to spam their music on the internet relentlessly or suck up to supposed ‘scene veterans’. If the metal community doesn’t look out for each other, we aren’t one. We’re all just greedy people trying to do what we want without wanting to touch people with our music and deeds.
