Do you support it? Why or why not?

Yes. Because record sale money goes almost completely to the label, not the band.


And quite frankly, fuck labels. You can do it all on your own now if you just have the work ethic and balls to do your own pencil pushing.

I download, the vast, VAST majority of my music. Simply because it's faster and easier to get to. I only buy albums of bands I really like

I support it, because being a musician, I don't care about the money. The artist gets like, what, 20 cents from each CD? And writing brutal deathgrind, I wouldn't sell many CD's. I care more about the music and the fanbase than anything. Just having someone, anyone, listen to something I wrote is an honour. I don't care by what means they listen, as long as they're listening. I feel that any true artist should feel the same.

I would support it. But I kinda have dial-up. So I buy some stuff, and get others to download it.

I think it's a great thing, it makes things so much easier.

I think it's okay if you support the band in another way, promoting, buying their merch ETC.


If I DL a bands albums and I hear they're coming around the area, I'm usually going to go to the show.

I personally don't understand why a lot of people hate it. Above everything else, it exposes the band, hardcore. Exposure it way greater in the long run than a few quick bucks.

He's not so much of a douche about it anymore, on Global Metal, he says that, as long as the kids can get their hands on it, it's great.

I think he was talking more about other countries. I think he still cares about it in the US, Canada, and Europe. Because they don't have access to music and media like we do.

Lars problem was that Napster was making money off of people downloading music from the site, and not giving money to artists. As far as I know, his stance is that as long as a download is FREE, he doesn't care about it.

Which makes sense. Lars is a businessman, so he knows he's making sweet fuck all off of record sales.
