Yes, it can be another topic open to discussion indeed, a follow to your thread: The birth of heavy metal http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=82168

Many metal artists and bands do not know what to invent or create within the genre, but a shocking image, agressive lyrics and riffs, and every aspect to touch a new audience seemed to have been covered, perhaps a return to where it all started could be the answer, both in terms of musicality and image, like in fashion, nothing's really new isn't it? things from the past keep re-appearing all the time.
