@Ironheade That's an interesting perspective I've never really stopped to consider and I loved reading about it. I do find it funny how a similar case happened again, albeit in a different context. When Erase Me came out, they found themselves intersecting with the radio rock / post-grunge scene, which already alienated many sections of their fanbase as it was another left turn in a career full of them. Moreover, they got a lot of shit for speaking out against issues some members felt in relation to their faith. The amount of times I've read rants about how the band was betraying the Christian metal / rock community, and giving Christians a bad name... I can't speak for the latters as I don't practice, and it isn't my place, but I was stunned by the sudden flip-flopping. I thought they were brave for questioning their views and opening up a conversation about it, yet I've seen many people straight up eviscerate them in bad faith (no pun intended). It makes me already wonder what backlash they will get next. I also had a wider point to make about metal communities, but I ended up going on a huge tangent instead. I had a lot on my chest, so I kept those paragraphs in the draft nn. .
