Epic Botch weirdness from somewhere around Jupiter's moon of Titan.

Botch is pretty heavy, personally though I can't stand the discordant harmony of mathcore, and I'll forever curse Greg Ginn for noodling around with jazz scales in hardcore.

I tend to like my metalcore on the hardcore end of the spectrum so the surfers from Parkway Drive are some of my favs. Obviously not as heavy as some of the deathcore orientated bands but good melodies.

I can dig some of the melodic metalcore bands, like Parkway Drive, August Burns Red, and Shadows Fall, but the melodic death metal riffs don't do so much for me. They have some good energy, but I usually end up getting bored at least half way through their albums.

If by melodic death metal riffs if you mean deathcore bands than I'm with you there for the most part. The thing about death metal is that its often highly technical, so listening to a deathcore band is like watching a B movie, not so good.

But now that I'm here I mind as well torture everyone with another hardcore leaning metalcore band that everyone loves to hate but me. Bring Me The Horizon!

I meant the metalcore bands that mix Gothenburg influences. Although in small doses they can be quite fun. The melodic choruses can actually be me favorite parts of them, as they're just catchy as ****.









And this is the only Bring Me the Horizon song that doesn't really bore me. Mostly because they aren't pretending to be an extreme metal band. And those riffs when Olie Sykes is screaming "It was written in blood" over and over again are actually pretty ****ing badass.

I see, well I've never been fan of the Gothenburg stuff to begin with, which is why I don't like a lot of metalcore (At the Gates & In Flames put me to sleep to be honest)

As for Bring me the Horizon, I can dig if you don't like them, so here's an American metalcore band I was into back in the day that had a pretty hard hitting sound....again somewhat hardcore leaning.

A bit closer to straight-up hardcore than I've been listening to, but all this stuff, along with some Madball and Sick of It All type stuff over the last few months, have been slowly winning me over to more pure HC. Pretty cool.

Nice. And have you heard BMtH's newest album? I just listened to a few tracks out of curiosity after seeing it get rave reviews, and I was just like, "Ermagherd, this is the most boring thing I've ever heard." I don't care if they're moving beyond metalcore, they're just making dull music.

I didn't know they had a new album, unless you mean Sempiternal ,in which I threw up two tracks from that album.

They've definitely gone in a different direction from when they started ten years ago or so, but I'm not really up on my metalcore anymore, that ship set sail awhile back, in terms of metal I was starting to get into the Blackened pagan metal coming out of Europe, so this is more my flavor these days

Really digging Homewrecker ATM. A newer band, their combination of legitimate hardcore, metalcore, and death metal sounds like what deathcore should sound like. If Hatebreed were in love with Extreme Noise Terror rather than Pantera they might sound a bit like this band. Songs that are less than a minute also add some punk cred. Grind moments give way to heavy-as-**** breakdowns with actual riffs, and skulls are crushed. Intense, brutal ****ing stuff. I'll definitely be keeping up with these guys.
