I don't want to read about face shredding metal, I want to hear it.

ABR is one of my favorite heavy bands.

agreed they are really tight live. what i don't understand is why a lot of musicians actually don't listen to the genre they play in. I mean if i were playing in a metalcore band and it wasn't my favorite style to play then i dunno just seems weird.

I was thinking the same thing, but hey, whatever floats their boat. as long as they keep making great music, I don't really care what they listen to lol

The piece said the opposite- they very much enjoy playing it. He just said he's lost a lot of interest in listening to it anymore. What's the difference?

If you're amongst the caliber of musicians such as Brubaker, really think about it, would what most of the other metalcore bands today are doing be all that musically interesting to your senses? Sure, a lot of the stuff can just be sonically fun but when you really get down to the musicality of it, you wouldn't tend to call a ton of metalcore acts today great musicians.

Same reason that as a classically educated musician, I find hip hop as a genre uninteresting. Some specific reasons would be complete lack of structural and dynamic contrast across most of the board in the genre, sucking a lot of life out of songs, and a lot of it is lyrically distasteful to me (just some reasons). Despite those, there are qualities of the genre and even specific songs that I really admire. More examples: rhythmic intensity, the fact that some flows are just too good to dislike, and the layering of sound is executed well a lot of the time. Despite disliking the genre as a whole, I'm completely capable of drawing influence from it in respect to the elements that I admire and incorporating it into whatever style of music that I enjoy playing.

The best musicians are able to bring other completely alien influences into their expression of sound. Seeking inspiration elsewhere can inform your tastes even more as to what you like about all music in general instead of just the genre you play in and that can really help you bring life to your expression. In no way are these influences limited to music either- everyone's heard of drawing inspiration from pictures, visual art, movies, or something as simple as going outside and using your eyes. It's the things that are different that catch our eyes and inspire us to be different ourselves.
