Just bought my first iTunes album. “Daysend,” their music is similar to that of Shadows Fall, God Forbid, Trivium. It’s heavy metal all the way and with the talent these guys posess, they’re guaranteed to followup in a big way.
Then again I thought the same thing about Shinedown. Mind you, I love Shinedown, their first release got me through some serious shit… But after listening to their latest I didn’t want to listen to 45… I wanted a real one, loaded and aimed at my temple.
What can I say, through the possibility of self-destruction we all find out what we are truly capable of.
In all, the music cost me $11, the RIAA gets their tithe, Apple gets a piece, and so does the artist. The album art is hi-res, so I can easily print it out… Anyplace else the album cost upwards of $13. Most albums on iTunes cost less than a music store.
Plus there’s the whole no driving to the store thing…
No lines to deal with…
No exhorbitant fees…
That and I can hear 30 seconds of each track before buying.
This is survival of the fittest in its truest form.
Pardon me while I raise a glass to the death of the music industry.
Long live iTunes!
