Is it just me or do people on the meshuggah forum seem really negative?

This may seem a tad bitchy and what not, but im not trying to draw comparisons and say sevenstring.org is better etc, neither am i slating the meshuggah forum. But in my experience when ive posted new music up or links people on that forum have been nothing but arseholes and been totally negative. I mean if your not going to say something productive why bother saying anything at all.
Is it just me or have other people experienced this?

You have to understand, over there its going to be a high quantity of people who view Meshuggah as their favourite band, and some will expect nothing but Meshuggah clones.

Over here, you have people listening to pretty much anything, as this place isn't limited to fans of a certain band, so there are likely to more people like your music than dont. Also, most people on here are pretty laid back and if they don't like your music, they'll just look at another thread.

Well thats interesting because some of the guys always seem to call stuff i post really derivative and just copying meshuggah sikth dillinger etc. so it cant be that they are just expecting to hear meshuggah clones. dont get it

Yeah, but they still worship the bands which clone Meshuggah , because its not a clone, they wont like it, hell they'd probably say my stuff copies Meshuggah and its nowhere near, yet if I became the next Coprofago they'd be all over it.

At the end of the day though, I wouldn't worry about it, its only one forum, about 3 or 4 people on it at that. The Meshuggah forum is one of the slowest moving forums too, used to be pretty vibrant over there but thats about 5 years ago.

Exactly.

Plus, I've found the general attitude of this board to be welcoming and friendly. This is a reflection of the owner and moderators - well done, guys!

I'm still looking for a drumming forum with this kind of quality...

Yeah, the Meshuggah forum is really negative. Most of them just bitch constantly about how crap they think Meshuggah are nowadays. In fact, half of the posts don't make any sense. When you try and post, I find you have no idea what the hell other people are on about. What's the general consensus? WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!!!!!???!?!???!?

OK, rant over.

with the exception of the members that i know from this fine establishment that post on the mesh forum,i find the great majority to be a bunch of immature negative assholes who like nothing more than to flame and generally make one feel not welcome.

do you have a fetish for reverse heads stocks?,do you find your self sweating or drooling over the site of a reverse head stock? if the answer is yes then i can help with therapy and rehab.join RHLC to feel normal again.....first consult free,normal rates apply after..LOL

I find it's the same with any band specific forum, you get a lot of asstards. I would rarely, if ever, visit the forums of even my favourite bands. Hell, even the brand specific guitar forums are full of jerks a lot of the time, I can't stand the Ibanez board for example.

But then again, I find it rare to ever, ever get a forum that comes close to how awesome this one is. You guys are the best.

Ibanez board is eh alright, I just find the forum system they run to be a bit . Also like 3/5 words you write are censored whereas here I can say .... shit .......

When I went to the Mesh forum it seemed like the entire place was packed full of inside jokes everyone laughed at and I was just ?_?

Bulbinator posts there some bit though.

The mesh forum definitely has an "in"-crowd, and it's to small to have groups. over here we have enough members to have different groupings.

there's definitely certain types of people who go to certain forums, like JCF is mainly 30+ year old dudes who grew up in the 80s and the ESP forum is teenage guys with some dudes over 20 who just like posting stupid shit all day. meshuggah's definitely a band who has a giant following of "anything but meshuggah sucks" mentality people, same deal with metallica, etc.

Just that the music was boring and that we were copying other bands too much.check the thread if your interested.(on the meshuggah forum i have already said where earlier in this thread)Dont get me wrong i dont mind constructive criticism, but their comments were just childish.

By the way Bulb if you read this and have read the thread i posted on the meshuggah forum, I think your music's awesome, was just using your style being influenced by meshuggah as an example to counter what the guys were saying.

Yeah you are always going to get people like that everywhere, its the problem with metal sometimes, people hold stuff close to their heart, so unless its repeating what they already like, or is something that completely sideswipes them out of nowhere, they are going to complain, I'm guilty of it myself on occasion.

However, don't worry about it, every band gets the same thing from someone, you just have to take what they say with a pinch of salt, sometimes wonder if some things they have to say are valid (i.e. listen to your own music objectively and see if you can hear anything from any other bands they mentioned), but then get on with what you are doing.

There's enough people ragging on Metallica all the time, but it doesn't stop them selling out gigs on a regular basis, and still has people interested in them after 4 albums that many people do not care for. As long as you feel you are getting what you want across with the music, then that is what matters, and if people like it or not, then thats their problem, not yours
