Over to the blogosphere now, Matt Fanale, aka Caustic, in his blog titled ‘Your Words Dumb: Lyrical Mediocrity in Stompy Goodness‘ states what needs to be said about the standard of current EBM/Industrial bands/projects. He argues that in essence the lyrics in the majority of these bands are dam right horrible, and the music is boring and samey. I personally canâ€™t argue against his sentiment.
Because Matt Fanale published this blog on Vampirefreaks the inevitable trolls came out to play. After one poster accused industrial music of not even being music, he did an amazingly sarcastic response in the form of another blog, titled ‘Is Industrial Music? An In-Depth Analysis’
I can guarantee this will have you in stiches!
