I dislike "-core" music because most of it is very dry with no other redeeming values except some technicality. They also do not match their lyrical themes with the music; you cannot tell a love song from a hate song without reading the lyrics, and that's how you know aesthetics are lacking. I also find fry screams grating, and even more so those whiny clean vocals. The music fails at being heavy, because it is over-processed and as light as pop punk with screaming. Put some testosterone in the guitar, will you? Or if you must, some estrogen...I don't care, put something in it to make it less dry and at least interesting and provoking.
As for the scene, much of it is a joke. These bands usually have no understanding or respect for their ancestors, and most fans aren't better. This music is not for me.
