Anyone into these?

Recommended Posts

I've been noticing since last year these Metal(?) sub-genres that I know nothing about. Terms like DEATHCORE, MALLCORE, DEATHCORE, SCREAMO, (add anything that I may have forgotten) just make me scratch my head and make me realize that I don't know the extreme music of today (Probably because of my age :christmas: ).

 

Anyone here into these kind of music(?)? And more importantly, can you differentiate these to the ones that we're listening to?

Generally, I find anything with the "-core" suffix is to be avoided like an explosive device. :gone:

 

(Lone exception: old school '80s hardcore)

Mallcore sounds underwhelming.

The kind of stuff that kids who hang out in malls listen to. (i.e. the Hot Topic crowd)

Yes! You forgot MATHCORE! (The Dillinger Escape Plan) My musical tastes are pretty broad & have tended to move with the times so I just don't listen to the 80's/90's stuff anymore. I actually really respect all the bands of today that make this music as technically they're as good as anything from the last century. Bands with 'Core' in the title obviously mean they're a crossover of Metal/Death with Hardcore, so you get screaming vocals (often with clean-sung choruses on the more mainstream acts - see Killswitch/As I Lay Dying etc), jarring rythms with little or no lead-guitar, & crushing breakdowns.

 

Frankly I LOVE Deathcore, even more so than the 80's Death Metal I grew up on (bands like Morbid Angel/Cannibal Corpse/Deicide/Suffocation). It's heavier, crunchier, groovier, & whereas they're all kids they can seriously play. JOB FOR A COWBOY/THE RED SHORE/PARKWAY DRIVE/DEAD TO FALL/CRYPTOPSY/SUICIDE SILENCE/BENEATH THE MASSACRE - are all awesome Deathcore bands that fucking slay. :beerbang: Whereas the old-school bands or fans don't really like this stuff (there was nearly WWIII when Cryptopsy's new album had some clean vocals on it - therefore shifting them from Death Metal to Deathcore) there is no escaping that this type of music is selling more records than Death Metal ever did...

Oh, yes! I've read about The Dillinger Escape Plan and Ben Weinman. He's included in the 50 FASTEST GUITARIST list by Guitar World (July 2008). But I read the words "hardcore punk" and that kinda blow it for me. I guess I'm kind of a bigot when it comes to musical terms like that and I know I have to overcome that. Though I know I won't be buying a CD of that band not because of my bigotry but because of my (again) luck of fund, I'm beginning to think I would like to hear this MATHCORE.

My thoughts exactly. If it has the extension "-core" at the end, it's poison for most people into the whole spectrum of melodic metal subgenres. I'm serious!

Whenever I read statements like that I want to die laughing. Selling a bunch of records does not mean the music is good. Boy bands, pop queens, and rappers sell shitloads of albums. Doesn't mean any of it is worth a shit...

 

I'm not gonna rip on the "-core" bands. I don't care for 99.99% of them, but to each his own. However, you might want to stop using "they sell a bunch of records" as your argument for these groups.

    • Good stuff....missed it first time around.....
    • The Jokers - Slapback from their upcoming release “Rock and Roll Bones” 
    • There are certainly some great songs on here. I've only done the first 2 discs so far though. 
    • Played as well today and it's ok and has a few good songs, but tbh, I'm starting to get a bit bored with them, as they don't offer up anything they haven't done before. Like the last album, everything on this album has been done to death previously and is as predictable as hell. Of all the new albums I have played recently (and there have been quite a few) this doesn't feature very highly unfortunately.
    • I think 'Smoking' is the weakest track by far on here and the only one I don't really rate that much. Of the others, 'Time to Let Go' is a cool rocker that hits the spot and the lead off single 'Why Are You Calling Me Now' is a great AOR track. Liking the rest is going to depend on whether you like the more New Country/Pop ballad style of song, as there are at least 4 or 5 like that,  with Jay DeMarcus's obvious influence on these ..'I Hope You Find It' 'Don't Go' 'Finally Got It Right' and 'Anything But Us' are spectacular ballads and amongst some of the best I have heard in recent times, whilst 'Angels' 'All Night To Get There', 'Lights Go Out In Paradise' and 'Waiting On Your Sunshine' are all top quality too. Definitely one of the best albums this year for me, but as I said, it won't all be for everyone's taste, especially the softer stuff on show.
    • At least they've reverted back to something similar to Tesla soundwise...its ok...not bad...but if I need Tesla I've always got Mechanical Resonance , TGRC or Psychotic Supper to get me through  
    • New single pretty blah to me.  It's ok I guess but no desire to add that to a playlist or re-listen. These guys feel like a band that's underachieved a bit to me with their new music in the past 20 years or so after starting off so well with their first 3-4 albums.  Yeah, there's been some good songs here and there but they just really haven't gotten near the quality of those early albums.
    • Lily Lowe - Scream      After listening to her debut album “Löwe“, it’s evident why LILY LOWE is being coined Norway’s new lady of rock. This young singer and songwriter – real name Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – has the voice, the looks and essentially, talent, to become a star. The mastermind behind “Löwe” is Norway’s rock institution Trond Holter (Wig Wam, Dream Police, Jorn Lande etc.) who not only co-wrote the songs, but also is the musical director & producer, and play all over the record. In fact, most of Wig Wam members play on the album, alongside other Scandinavian renowned musicians. But don’t lose the focus here: LILY LOWE is the star on the album: with her intense delivery of brazen vocals is sure to reign right alongside the most prominent rock artists to date. An she writes very good songs as well. LILY LOWE was a contestant for Norway’s Eurovision this year with the great glammy hard rock tune ‘Bad Baby’ (included into the album) but if you think her music is bland you better listen to “Löwe” carefully. Having a song titled ‘Handsome Whore’ in the track list give you an idea this album isn’t ‘Eurovision saccharine’ at all. This rocks, hard. Holter has provided a bright, crisp, rocking production for Lowe’s voice and he drops some killer riffs to boot, like on opener ‘Scream’ which while wrapped by a modern production it’s very classic rock. The kind of riff that worked in the Seventies, the Eighties, and today. ‘Bad Baby’ is the hit, catchy, infectious, with Lily showcasing why she grew up listening Guns N’ Roses and Motley crue. The glam metal ‘Daddy’s Type’ is probably the song that most reveals Holter’s involvement, because this could easily could be into any Wig Wam album. It’s almost like you get a little shocked when it’s not Åge Sten Nilsen who sings. On “Run” Lily & Holter try something different, more modern and adding some electronics to the mix, but don’t be fooled, this album rocks. “Löwe” is a catchy driving good debut album by this talented young woman, helped by a cast of top Scandinavian musicians. LILY LOWE is an artist we will certainly hear more about in years to come.   01 – Scream 02 – Crying Game 03 – Bad Baby 04 – 911 05 – Caught in a Dream 06 – Daddy’s Type 07 – Handsome Whore 08 – So Long 09 – Run Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – vocals, drums Trond Holter – guitars, keyboards, backing vocals Bernt Jansen – bass, backing vocals Magnus Galguften – drums Tom Jensen – keyboards
