I don't download, I use a service called Spotify in order to find out new bands, to be honest I got no money either. It's going towards a new amp, bloodstock 2011 and more. So I better find a sorce of cash quick!

Nah, I don't download, even legal downloads I don't like cos I like to have the actual CD rather than a few files on my computer or a CD-R with nothing but the band name and album title scribbled on the front.

I'm also of the mindset that bands are entitled to some return for their efforts, thankfully most metal bands aren't motivated solely by money unlike most of the top 40 these days, but they're not gonna do it for free either and if you're passionate about music and about particular bands you should support the bands and the scene by taking out your wallet from time to time. Don't get me wrong, am not against downloading, I think it can be an excellent way to discover new bands, and people will download or copy albums by bands they'd never have heard otherwise and it'll get the band new fans they wouldn't have had, and of course for most of us we can't afford all the albums we want anyway.

However, we should still support our favourite bands, and the metal scene in general by paying for at least the albums we really like and really want, if you download albums fine so long as you are paying for a fair share of your collection, and I think most people do that, there's this whole thing about people who download vs people who buy, fact is most people do both. It's just the mentality of some people who download EVERYTHING and never pay for a single album that I think sucks, thinking that "if I can't have it for free I'm not gonna bother with it", that's kinda a crap attitude IMO.

I am picky with what I buy I only buy stuff I really really like and want. And of course when I go to a bands gig I buy at least a t shirt or hoodie. Bands generate more revenue from gigs and merch then album sales it is said. And even people in bands download! They arent all saints Twisted Evil Razz
