I'm listening to one've our songs we did a really rough recording of on a phone. And we're starting of with a fast FF kind of riff. And then we're changing the tempo midwway and throwing in a kind of Korn/Nu Metal riff. Then putting in a breakdown and going back to an FF style riff. Then i notice other songs sound really technical and death metal inspired and others are seeming more fast and melodic. So basically my question is. If our band can't keep all of our songs anywhere near the same type of metal, is there something we should do? I know diversity is the key, but my friends are saying you'll have a tough time getting a person to like everysong when we mix it up a lot. I'll have the songs properly recorded soon enough to give to our drummer and singer, and i'll probably post it up here for you guys. But yeah, anything we should do?
Write what you want, don't try to stick yourself into one particular style. If the songs sound good, if you're happy with them, then who cares what genre it is. Stay true to yourselves and you'll be much happier with your music thanif you write to appease a certain audience. If your songs are good people will dig it.
