My friend listens to nothing but metalcore and I think it's garbage. Are there any redeeming qualities of the genre? Any groups I should be looking out for?
Parkway Drive - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNvOVey0MSs
Pandora's Dawn - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWxDrwwu_0c
All That Remains (2008 and earlier) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGtW4AFyLyM
Molotov Solution - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTUMfUTK5gw
yes there are a handful of really great artists, sadly though I doubt your friends listen to any of the good shit. most people still into metalcore that much are scene kids that always had terrible taste
Converge, The Banner, a few more
Metalcore has some great bands but unfortunately a majority of it is complete and utter shit that only appeals to 13 year olds
Their new album that came out the other week was pretty fantastic.
Between the Buried and Me
Burnt by the Sun
The Number Twelve
Poison The Well
Sky Came Falling
Unfortunately Intervals and Periphery have spawned a mass of vapid down-tuned/seven string music from bands with no sense of creativity and no understanding of how to manipulate their influences into something new.
Either most of these bands cycle from riff to riff to riff in a derivative poppy form or they just solo/noodle for the whole song over a boring chord progression that even blues musicians would laugh at.
ja, it was pretty good. I still really prefer Each Breath Haunted, though. Frailty is incredible as well.
The production on the new album kinda weirds me out tho. Maybe I'll give it another shot
Holy shit, haven't listened to these dudes in years. The Murder Mixtape branched the gap between hardcore and metal for me.
Best recs. I'd add Cro Mags, Prayer for Cleansing, Marauder, and Cold As Life.
>know qt grill
>go buying records and shit with her since she likes some older stuff
>her favorite of all is metalcore
>Parkway Drive, Converge, A Day To Remember
>swear i even saw Attila in her car
How do people honestly enjoy this shit?
dude went away for a dui or something i've always liked it
it's very yet extremely superficially enjoyable
if you think low of that, well, you're not at all wrong but lay your fedora by side for a moment and be pleb even if it's ironically, you'll find lots to love
