If you want to succeed in the supersaturated modern metal market, you need to stand out.
Here are a few principles that you may implement based on my lasting experience of producing bands and my own music.
💡Standing out is a very fine balance between fitting the pocket of the market and differing enough just to push its boundaries
💡Hence, using JUST your authentic ideas without exploring what is popular and WHY is a dangerous idea. This may drive your music simply irrelevant.
💡At the same time, mimicking popular trends and creating a mix-and-match of various sonic trends just for the sake of it would not display your authenticity, and your listener would not connect to it at best.
I suggest the following strategies when writing new music and thinking about its future success in the market:
✅ Explore what is new and trending in a similar heavy style to yours. Super important to follow the trends and understand WHY these songs are in high demand. Break down their stylistic elements and feel.
✅ Then, write music sincerely and authentically, project your message fully, without restrictions.
✅ And then, carve that message stylistically based on the trends that you explored earlier and which FIT its atmosphere (sounds, samples, arrangement, layers, grooves)
✅ It also make sense to stand out with your sound and with your mix – with the similar principle. Fitting the pocket and bending it just a bit. One of the proven strategies for me is to capture unique drum samples on the recording day and use them aggressively for sampled yet unique and real sound.
