Ask the Artist: How do you Discover New Music?
Metal Injection recently compiled another of their “Ask the Artist” videos, in which they ask a wide variety of metal musicians the same question. This episode’s theme: how do you discover new music?
Devin Townsend, members of Behold The Arctopus, Paradise Lost, Katatonia, Castavet, Krallice, Hivesmasher, Dysrythmia, Paradise Lost, Stolen Babies, The Browning, The Casulaties, Trioscapes, and Vattnet Viskar reveal how they find out about new bands and new albums; downloading? Spotify? Word of mouth? Other? Watch to find out.
The answers are really interesting seeing as several of these guys are full-time musicians who don’t really have the time to sit in front of their computers seeking out new music. The members of the smaller bands are much more likely to read blogs, use music discovery sites, etc, than the guys who spend most of the year on the road or in the studio.
