I listened to the new Obscura last night and it was really damn good. I have a history of shitting on the newer style of tech death and it got me thinking that maybe I've been wrong this whole time. I queued up a bunch of 2010-2020 tech death bands and discographies and have been going through them the last 24 hours. Just finished the Beyond Creation discography as I type this and at this time I'd like to apologize... TO ABSOLUTELY NOBODY! Fuck you I was right these bands are trash. The amount of garbage tech death out there is amazing. None of these losers are focused on trying write quality music or tracks, or maybe they are and simply can't do it. But the goal in this genre is clearly trying to out wank each other. If you're recording songs you can't play live you're doing music wrong. These guys are worse than those black metal bands who had their own version of the Loudness Wars but all tried to sound worse than the next guy. If I sound bitter it's because I am.
