Default The State of Metal In 10 Years? 20 Years?

Just curious to see what you guys think

personally in terms of popularity its reaching another climax and will soon fall down again, as always the underground is relatively strong, but i dunno if there will be another golden age like the 80s-mid-90s

Metal will just go on & on & on & on.

It`s one of the very few genres that carries on regardless of trends or fashions.

As long as there are 16 year old boys into homoerotic male bonding around guitars there will always be metal.

Metal had a golden age in the 80's? That's sort of like saying Hitler had a golden age in the early 40's.

It was the kind of metal dominating the mainstream, though. And he was speaking in terms of popularity.

I think Metalcore will still either be there, or made a big impression in how metal is done. Whatever style is big in that 10 years, it will porlly have some metalcore influences.

The only metalcore worth listening to is Integrity. I think the number of metal genre will keep widening and mix different sounds and will continue to have a decent progression.

I agree with Urban when he says popularity-wise it's pretty damn strong right now but it's hitting a peak and will decrease within the next few years. It's like it got real big and now there's a bit of a backlash with everything thats not "hardcore" enough. I cannot organize my thoughts right now, I doubt I'm even making snse, I'll stop there, k?

I see metal turning into mad wankage in 20 years...everyone will have the perspective of John Petrucci and Yngwie...Fuck being Melodic because i can play 234523452354 beats per second.
