Yeah, frustration is definitely one of about two words that start with "F" that comes to mind! It's an underground thing now and there's something cozy about that. Thanks to the Internet, nothing is really "that" hard-to-find as long as you search it out. Living in Canada where there is no hard rock scene whatsoever, great web sites like aorheaven and melodicrock.com have helped offset my handicap of geography. The Internet is such that if you're into anything, there'll be a website dedicated to it. So to hell with MTV or Much Music or VH1- they will only support a scene for 3-4 years anyway. If you think about it, there are MORE good hard rock bands operating now on labels like Z, Point, Frontiers, Kivel, MTM, Escape etc. than there were 10 years ago!!! The scene is better now than ever! More importantly, more bands are doing it now for the right reasons. Not because they signed a big contract with a major label, it's trendy and their swinging hair will make them the darlings of MTV, but because they truly WANT to record and perform hard melodic rock outside of all else.
