SongoftheDay: The Dream Thieves by The Sword

Asked by Radio Cannon in a 2014 interview how he feels the metal scene has evolved since THE SWORD started, the band’s guitarist, Kyle Shutt, said: “It’s funny, because I think when we started people reacted differently to us because the metal scene was dominated by these macho, wrestler-looking types, screaming at you, etc… And bands like that are dying out. It’s becoming a lot more rock ‘n’ roll. And I also notice that heavy metal journalism in the last ten years is so much more positive compared to when we started. It was so negative back then. And you gotta have haters, you know what I’m saying? It’s just that there used to besome serious debates about us on message boards where people would try to figure out what we did and have these crazy theories that we were like, this pre-packaged band. It was so hateful for no reason, and nowadays people are so much more accepting.SWW2 I think music just got so terrible for a while and so many shitty bands got shoved down people’s throats by record labels throwing money at record stations and I think people just started looking past the bullshit and are much more open-minded now, with awesome bands like GRAVEYARD and BOMBUS. Or AMERICAN SHARKS, from Austin. Just cool heavy bands getting exposure.”
