Nine times out of ten, any attempt made by a metal artist to get outside of metal will only be heard by their already established metal audience. I can't tell if it's a reflection of poor marketing or fickle markets, but that seems to be the way it is.

Not to circle-jerk here, but metalheads typically are melomaniacs who like music beyond genre boundaries. We're a much more fluid audience, generally speaking, then the crowds of much other genres. I'm pretty sure that the synthwave scene, for instance, wouldn't be as big as it is now if it wasn't for metalheads.
