Post Musicians who killed their own mystique......
whether consciously or not. Case 1 for me is Varg Vikernes. Firstly, by returning with a series of mostly underwhelming metal albums he kind of killed the mystery behind his 'greatness'. Those albums revealed him to be less great musically than perhaps we assumed in the 90's. Secondly, those silly Youtube videos, which seem designed to consciously destroy his previous image.

Other examples?

Trey Azagthoth, his MySpace posts were like a teenage girl.

Probably Kiss when they 'unmasked', or Slipknot when they did the same with their respective side projects. Benton when he backtracked on the suicide thing and adopted more of a biker persona.

Anyone who drops a gimmick, essentially.

Probably some of his retarded shit about shampoo and Sailor Moon. He's outed himself in this respect on the liner notes for years.

Trey's mystique died for me the moment I heard his voice back in 1995 :lol:

Well, he's since been diagnosed with Asperger's or some such shit, which probably explains a lot. He does sound like a fucking surfer 'dude', though. Can't deny his talent, mind you.

First hinge that came to mind was Kiss unmasking. I guess any act that paint themselves as more than simply people on stage as part of their act are always susceptible to this kind of loss of mystique. I expect Ghost will be next?

You ever hear Sandoval speaking? He sounds like Al Pacino in Scarface, meng.

Speaking of other surprising voices in the Floridian DM scene, Chuck Shuldiner had a voice that I wouldn't expect.

Dont get me wrong I worship Trey but receiving MySpace messages from him that had OMG and LOL peppered all over them was a bit surreal.

Fucking banana boater...Terrorizer is another example of a band that should have stayed dead. Awesome demos, live tapes and fucking World Downfall. Now there are 3 other piles of shite bearing the name that nobody wanted, effectively ruining the legendary status of the band...

He definitely sounded like a stoner.

I wonder how his lyrics on the 1990-1993 stuff was received, considering he wanted to move away from the typical DM gore-y subjects. Does anyone have an answer for this?

I seem to remember them being pretty well received at the time, certainly for Human (I bowed out when ITP dropped). It was considered refreshing to have lyrics that weren't the standard gore/violence/demonic/fantasy fare.

You know there are 2 Terrorizers on the go now? Garcia has his version, called Terrorizer LA. He and Sandoval fell out years ago so now you have this petty shit going on, similar to the Entombed embarrassment.
