Metalhead Community Blog readers might remember the band; TRIGRAM. We wanted o take a closer look to their impressive self-titled debut album, which is one of the best albums, and also the best debuts of 2017 for us. We wanted to write another article about it and bring you the secret behind their success. First of all, it was Trigram’s super professional production, and protest attitude that caught my attention. It is a fact that this album is a production marvel, which has a great credit along with many other facts on the album’s positive feedback. As I have mentioned on some of my previous articles, the professional look has a great impact both on the potential listeners and on the people in the music industry. The world is changing every day and rock/metal bands, who are the leaders of free speech in the music field, are not actively interested in this topic as they used to before. Since the 90’s, mass media has even more centralized and taken control over the world. We might feel more independent by the existence of the internet, but the actual truth, as we all know, is a little bit different. Marketing strategies are based on illusions that widen the gap with the reality. And the subjects such as being protest, sensitive or realistic is not that trendy anymore. Even the legendary bands have adapted themselves to these strategies and started writing songs about fantastic, sci-fi stories (Dream Theater) or even worse; Lords of Summer (Metallica), which no one will ever remember what it was about. Sad but true. Reality is difficult, depressing, heartbreaking, suffocating much more than ever, thanks to these gadgets in our pockets.
