Why do we all hate -core music?

Coming from a metalhead and hardcore background, I can easily say most metalcore sucks, especially the further fusing of subgenres, like deathcore.  Bands like BMTH are abysmal where the entire emphasis is being loud, heavy, fast/slow/fast/slow, and fun, just like whatever pop rock garbage comes through the radio, just a more radical facade.  The worst part is (and I know people like this) these guys who think they're into "death metal" because they downloaded a few BMTH songs, while never even having heard of a Massacra or a Demilich or what have you, and also thinking that At the Gates' only album is Slaughter of the Soul.

However, Integrity, being the first metalcore band and, really, the only one who got it right, is worthy listening, notably "Seasons in the Size of Days", "Systems Overload", and "Humanity is the Devil".  They somehow managed to balance hardcore punk with extreme metal without the two losing their efficacy.

I originally wrote a post which emphasized the relevance of Integrity, and pretty much how you put it, as the only band that performed "Metalcore" in an acceptable way. Then I deleted it because of a reason I can't remember.

On an unrelated note, it's interesting how all of these metalcore and deathcore bands constantly masturbate to the idea of SOTS, when Absu's "Tara", albeit in a different genre altogether, blew that album's melody, technicality and precision into next Tuesday.

It boggles my mind to see bullshit genres spawned from bullshit albums.

But you civilised men are soft; your lives are not nailed to your spines as are ours. Your fortitude consists mainly in inflicting torment, not in enduring it. You will be dead before sundown." - REH

thats because Integrity fucking slays period, i don't think there is anything wrong with hardcore, as a matter of fact i love it. All of these "metal core" and "death core" bands with little girls trying not to rip their pants while doing moves copyrighted by kip winger on stage,fall into a category of their own. The difference is in hardcore you actually have to show your dedication and earn respect based on what you have brewing up in your skull, not whats on top of it. I think that giving them the term metal core takes away from the power of both the terms Metal and Hardcore, as those are cultures who celebrate a life style, not pretend to live one in the hopes of scoring some damaged broad who hates her father and wears all black. All it really is, is sappy pop music with distortion, and should be called nothing else. You give them something to be proud about and they'll never go away. I will go as far as to say that hardcore dudes go easy on them,  in my neighborhood you'll get your ass kicked for shit like that.

You kinda lost me here.

And I just feel that "metalcore" is the most apt description of Dwid's music, despite the connotation of mediocre bullshit that came years later.

Rorschach is considered one of the first as well, though I don't consider them metalcore.
No.

I am so confident about winning the sled dog race, that I have sold all of my furniture so that I can have more practice space. With the money I win from the sled race, I will buy new furniture. I have never seen wiener dogs in an alaskan sled race before, but because of the early-on master training I am letting them have the opportunity to endure, I think my chances are at a solid 110%.


I think it your are pretty serious for your sled dog race that you sold your furniture for space but it is good that you are confident about it. I hope you win too so you can buy a newer furniture's for your home because we know it makes the house complete to live in. Anyways you can make furniture's for yourself if you like because with the right tools and materials it is easy to make one.

Holy fucking God, the spam bots are becoming more and more intelligent.

If they namedropped Burzum or Julius Evola, I don't think anybody would even realize.

It sounds like monkeys wrote the songs. I like monkeys. If I had a monkey, I would teach it to count cards. Then, I would unleash it into a casino, and if somebody shouts "Hey! Who's monkey is that?!" I would say "That's not my monkey."

I think about this paragraph frequently when I hear something that sounds like Meshuggah/Exodus/Prong/Exhorder in a blender with Fugazi/Jawbreaker/Neurosis and have to just laugh. The noodly scales of the 1970s have been replaced by noodly open-string nuttiness.

Unless it was like, a Mormon forum or something, then they would totally be suspicious of something.

I've been mentioning this band for a while; might as well provide a sample.

Some of the only coherent metalcore I've ever heard. If anyone enjoys what they hear, I'll put up the album in Audiofile.
No.

Great band, but I think the label just applies for lack of a better term.  I've heard some describe them as powerviolence, which was never meant to be a serious term, in my opinion, though people do consider it as such nowadays.  If they were to play a set today, it would be at a hardcore show.  I'll gladly download it if you provide.
