ABLOOM (formerly MOTHRA), the California-based group featuring former SOULFLY members Mikey Doling (guitar), Marcello D. Rapp (bass), and Roy Mayorga (drums), have posted two new tracks in MP3 format at their official web site. The songs, "January 2nd" and "What You Came For", will be available for download for one day only.

ABLOOM's current lineup is rounded out by guitarist Levon Sultanian and vocalist Jason Radford (both of ONESIDEZERO). The band, who are presently unsigned, expect to release their debut album sometime in 2004.

Metal by itself is dying at this point, all nu-metal bands are f***ed, it fell almost as quickly as it rose. So f*** this sh** and this site, go listen to some emo/core like From Autumn to Ashes and Vaux, or just listen to old skool metal like Maiden and Metallica, not the sh** being made now, like Soulfly and all this crap. Metals on a decline, switch to sh** like Finch, Deftones(not metal), Glassjaw, its better and they do more solos than they do in crap like Soulfly, dont even no how to play f***in guitar!"

Riiiight. If you think metal is on the decline, you're not looking hard enough. If all you like is old-school metal, you may be out of luck, but metal has reinvented itself many times and is as strong as ever. The fact that some nu-metal bands have been dropped by their "big" labels means nothing more than nu-metal is not a cash cow they hoped it would be. The good bands live on or move on to new projects (like Abloom), which keeps metal adapting in one way or another. If a band changes for the worse, in your opinion, move on - there are plenty more good ones out there. Or give up and listen to some radio rock or pop.
