Group project: what is metalcore?

Group project: what is metalcore?

I didn't like the article.


The Haunted, metalcore? Who is Fugazi. Meshuggah?

Does metalcore mean anything?

The Haunted are pretty metalcore - definitely NOT death metal. I would say Meshuggah relies more on speed metal mixed with jazz technique, not much influence from hardcore other than the vocals. As for Fugazi, I was confused with that inclusion until Brett explained his meaning behind it (in the comments). I get it, though I wouldn't really say that myself. Band's pretty good for that kind of music, though.

Anyway, here's a few bands that fit nicely under the category of metalcore without much confusion.

Rorschach - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dyprzmd3rVw (found the whole album)

Today Is The Day - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WptignJ_qs

Burnt By The Sun (not as good as the above two, but this particular album still gets listens from me) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9dAjKUnB68

Discordance Axis (I think they're much more grind than metalcore, but I digress) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mINKK1Hpm3c (whole album)

This is what started out as metalcore; however at the time (and before) even stuff like D.R.I.'s speed metal albums, Leeway, Cro-Mags, etc was getting called that though. The genre has really tenuous and different roots, but Rorschach and Integrity are considered by many the archetypes of it.

Having reviewed the thread, baby Jesus is most definitely weeping at this point.

well, metalcore is crossover thrash metal with modern things, lyrics about the "hard life", like the last works from D.R.I.
