Lately I have been seeing posts all over the internet claiming that just because the "old school" bands (Mayhem, Darkthrone, Immortal, etc) have better a better recording quality that now the underground BM bands should do so also.
How does that make sense?
Most BM bands start off with little to no budget... As did the bands of the First and Second wave. BM bands do not make as much money as they think they do and if your into to the band because the quality of sound is good then your not a real fan then are you?
Some bands over the years do choose to keep to the lo-fi recording quality because it is simply part of their "sound" and once again if those keeps you from liking that band then what the fuck are you doing listening to them?
