It seems like everyone is trying to get better and better at depicting their own everyday feelings and experiences. It's great for simpler, starker music, but I for one am more of an instrumental guy. My band always writes guitar/drums/bass first. It's a metal kind of perspective.
How do you find inspiration for words when the instrumentation has nothing to do with your own life? It would be corny to change my experiences into something different to suit the music, but it's getting more and more difficult for me to find words about other people or odd things without sounding dumb. I mean, you get this sick ass Satan riff that you've just gotta use, but you've never been to hell! What do you do?
