Terminus Cannibals in the Walking Dead compared to the Music Business. A zombie apocalypse music industry video.
This video was shot at a location in Atlanta Georgia used for The Walking Dead at the end of last season and will be used in the beginning of Season Five called Terminus. It is hinted pretty clearly that cannibalism is in the mix and the Terminus Cannibals present an offer of safety, security and happiness, only to cook those that buy in to it and come to this thought to be safe haven.
Not unlike the music business, there are a lot of Terminus Cannibals running around making promises, preying on the hopes and dreams of musicians, only to use them, take advantage and make a quick buck. Often times, leaving these musicians screwed over and hung out to dry.
In The Walking Dead, the characters Rick Grimes played by Andrew Lincoln, Daryl Dixon played by Norman Reedus, Maggie Greene played by Lauren Cohan, Glenn Rhee played by Steven Yeun and a number of others are drawn in to the promise of hope. Even as red flags are raised by each character, they still get sucked in to the trap of the Terminus Cannibals and find themselves locked in a box car at the very end of last season.
When the red flags go off in your music career, pay attention to them. Do your due diligence, do your research and do your fact checking before signing a deal, working with someone or making an agreement that could leave you to be eaten alive by the Terminus Cannibal types of the Music Business.
