Gatekeeping: What It Is & Why It Hurts Heavy Music

Gatekeeping has increased over the last few years. This video looks at what gatekeeping is, why it’s hurting heavy music, and what can be done about it.

There has been a lot of discussion about gatekeeping recently. Not just the act itself, but what it is and how it’s been exacerbated over the past few years. Many musicians have been making statements about this in one form or another over recent years as it’s become necessary. Now that cesspools like Twitter and specific subreddits have become plagued with stereotypical metal dorks trying to prove they are the biggest fan, heavy music has fallen down further in popularity because rock and metal are not gaining new fans like they used to.

This problem is not isolated to music. It happens with movies, video games, comics, you name it. When talking about music though, it seems that gatekeeping has had the most detrimental effects on the bands and artists that said people are bravely trying to protect. When you boil it down, gatekeepers ARE fans. To the point of truly being fanatical. NO ONE CAN LOVE WHAT I DO AS MUCH AS I DO SO I WON’T LET YOU TRY.
