    Come on, man. That's the one good thing Trevor Rabin did.

    Haha, I don't hate the song, I just wish someone from my damn country could have done something marginally better :lol: Including me I suppose.

    Primarily a Paul Simon venture, I wouldn't really call it a South African record.

    In terms of 'native' music, I much prefer African music from further north, stuff down here tends to be quite cheesy.

    We don't need them... because this is melodic death/folk/power/symphonic metal country :fawk:

    Seriously there is not a single even remotely popular band in this country that plays modern prog with the djents. I know couple underground bands, but most of them are instrumental stuff like this.

    What about Assemble the Chariots? I guess they're more death/black metal with teh djents, but still.

    Kind of metalcore with some modern progressive elements. I also totally forgot Circle Of Contempt.

    Oh and Humavoid (their guitarist used to be the vocalist of Amoral and is on this forum too):


    I definitely don't think AtC has anything to do with metalcore though. Just my opinion, no worries if you disagree :)

    We made grunge and still make rap, and country, and will generally appropriate anything that looks marketable. USA. USA. USA.

    Also you’re welcome for early 2000’s Nu-Metal. Now THAT’S culture.

    Fucking badass. Don't fall for the "muh country sucks we're uncultured" meme.

    1993, the first doom metal song recorded, and arguably the birth of heavy metal.


    1993, the first trash metal song ever recorded.


    2016, djent was born.


    2016, Coolio and Pixar use funds from the Steve Jobs foundation to produce Toy Story, the highest grossing animated film in history.

    In any country bands have to find creative ways of marketing to get more money so they can record more records and play better shows. If bands arent hustling thats not the industry's fault.

    There's bands getting on better tours in Canada and the US but people still need day jobs. As was said, people need multiple sources of income in music related fields if they want to "make money" from music (usually gets reinvested).
