This is my question. Who is buying this terrible stuff??? There's no way they make money on this, so the one for them, one for us rationale doesn't hold. It completely destroys the label's reputation. I just don't get it on any level.
They wouldn't be putting this out if they weren't making money off of it.
Look at bands like Emmure. They put out music just like this along with a bunch of derogatory merch, and they sell. There's a market for it, and somewhere along the line a few label execs decided they were okay with perpetuating such shit. Disappointing indeed.
