CLUTCH’s NEIL FALLON Discusses The Misplaced Nostalgia Of Followers Who Need Bands To Return To Their Outdated Sound

It is not a common fact, however some bands definitely change their sound over time. Typically within the case of bands like Opeth it is a drastic change (all of which is nice on this author’s opinion), and typically in a case like Clutch it is a a lot slower flip. After all with this alteration comes some very sturdy opinions from their respective fanbase, each complimentary and significant.

Although in an interview with Ryan J. Downey of Knotfest, Clutch vocalist Neil Fallon discusses how perhaps that cry for any given band to return to their “outdated sound” actually is not concerning the music.

“That is one factor I by no means actually fairly understood. ‘Oh, I want you can return again to your outdated sound’ or no matter. That is like, ‘properly would you like the identical factor again and again and again and again?’ There are there are bands that discovered a really particular factor and did very properly doing variations of that one or two themes. I am pondering of like AC/DC or the Ramones.

“That is all properly and good however, if you wish to hearken to… and actually, I feel a whole lot of it has to do with individuals wanting a time machine. It is not a lot they need the identical music, [but instead] they need the interval of their life that they affiliate with that music to return again. Musicians are usually not wizards. They can not take you again to your glory days or a great time in your life, as a result of finally I feel that is what individuals are truly in search of.”

I additionally love the purpose that Downey makes earlier than Fallon solutions the query – no person is taking away ay band’s outdated materials. So in case you determined that every little thing Clutch has ever completed from Blast Tyrant onward completely sucks, excellent news! All these outdated data are nonetheless accessible in each digital and bodily codecs. No person took ’em from you.
