The same happened in the late 80's with hundreds of Thrash bands that sounded the same. I have been listening to metal for over 20 years and only one or two new bands a year actually float my boat in terms of individuality or prowess.

Maybe you should delve back into older metal and maybe you might find a few gems and start commenting on them.
A bit off-topic but I came across an album I think you might like. You ever hear of an experimental/black metal band called Oblomov?

No offence, but if you're only going to listen to metalcore and a bit of melodeath (a small subset of one subforum), you'll be forever replying to the same people and seeing a blank space where you think new threads should be.

If you're bored of the same people replying to your threads I'll only be too happy to tell you what I think of the 4 metalcore bands you listen to.

I joined recently, and got quite a few people welcoming me on the topic I made - this alone shows me people are using the forum, if they are willing to just welcome a random person they dont even expect to stay for long.

Many people complain about things, it seems to be the nature of many people to tell groups, shops or whoever what they have done wrong, with no solutions in mind. this is in no way constructive, if you want something done you should have some ideas yourself, why should anyone sort out a problem that they didnt even worry about, and wasnt even regarded as a problem before you brought it up. In my opinion, if you get some good topics going, people will happily discuss with you, dont rely on others to do the work for you.

Very true.
It's my experience that people tend to veiw these boards from a personal perspective.
It's always the longer standing members who at some time or other become a little jaded with the site. I know, I've done it myself.
These members very rarely leave and the boards bob along as they always have.

Darkest Hour. There is a thread about 50 metal albums that you haven't commented on. Whether you like the choices thus far, it's a thread that you could take in and comment in instead instead of bitching about the fact that no one digs the latest Metalcore band.

This is how the forum grows and the very reason why the veterans get pissed off when it's claimed that the forum is dead. If you persist in keeping a closed mind then you will always be perpetually bored by the forums and your opinion frowned upon when you don't take the time to invest your ears in something outside of your usual listening parameters.

I have to say, i agree with the above. The reason i have stayed here is because there is a reasonable amount of activity across all the boards and i like to go in and out of each of them looking for music that is new to me.

If i was gonna spend all of my time in the rock and metal boards, or possibly in just one of the sub boards then i may aswell go and find a more specific forum.
