Tried powering through the "New Metal Tracks" list on Spotify and now I'm not sure I even like music anymore.

This Tweet from the monster that is @axeslasher led to a lively conversation on the ‘ole Twitter, which reminds me of why I loved Twitter for so long.
Trusting streaming music playlists is tough because – no matter how good the curator – metal is such a varied genre, with layers of sub-genres and nuance. But trusting just your friends or a few people in your network can get stagnant, too.
Trying to keep up with the steady flow of new releases is a full-time job, one that’s tough to keep up with even when it IS your full-time job. The best course of action? Find stuff accidentally, tuck some links away for another day, and enjoy the albums you already love.
