Yussssss HCTK is loving amazing. To me they seem to be just the right mix between breakdowns and riffing. This is the only "metal" band I've heard that's from Mexico, so if they're any indication, we may have some pretty awesome bands coming in the future.


After the Burial
This is currently one of my favorite bands (right behind PWD of course ). I'm terrible with classifying bands, but if I had to take a guess I'd say they're a sort of mathcore/metalcore hybrid. I don't particularly care for their latest CD Rareform, but Forgiving a Future Self has some amazing songs on it (Isolation Theory would give you a general idea of the album, not to mention it's brutal as hell). Here's a link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdlkfVOI71Q The quality isn't amazing, but I guess it could have been worse. Also, the song "Fingers like Daggers" off the same album is pretty drat good as well.

An American Shootout is another great band I've heard somewhat recently. The breakdown in Divergence is particularly awesome.

On the subject of Attack Attack!... honestly, I don't particularly care for them, but I'm sure there some person's favorite band, and arguing over the internet isn't going to change it

They rerecorded their latest release, Rareform, with a new vocalist. I don't know what the scheduled release is on it, but you can find it somewhere since it's leaked. New vox sound way better.

I guess I just prefer their old vocals, but these new ones aren't that bad either.

Find me a band heavier than the acacia strain. My username is named after them. They break my dick EVERY TIME.

Born of Osiris has some pretty heavy moments. The Faceless is loving crazy, but they're not heavy like The Acacia Strain.

Try out Shinto Katana (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnOTTXyHbgQ). That song and Frozen are pretty drat good, and they sound kind of like TAS.

I'm not sure what "jumped the shark" means but I think all of us normal people can agree that Attack Attack is loving horrible. They deserve to reside in the same mass grave as BrokeNcyde.

Happy Days reference where Fonzie ramped over a shark on water skis. This was supposedly a ploy to boost viewer ratings but it was such a massive swerve from the main "plot" of the show that it just ended up being dumb.

I've been out of the metalcore loop for a few years now, but does/did Tosin Abasi play guitar for Born of Osiris? He's not listed on their Wikipedia page, but some Metalsucks article says he does/did.

Anyway, we toured with Reflux for like a month back when he was in that band, and we exchanged techniques a lot and I am a much better player now because of him He's a really cool dude.

Sorry, seeing Born of Osiris mentioned sparked a little nostalgia in me. Also, Reflux was a really good band.

All I could really find was the metal sucks article as well. Seems credible enough

Well it's not that they're boring, it's just that most of the songs on The Cleansing sound very, very similar. They're enjoyable, but there isn't much variety.

Although, I'd take the new Born of Osiris over Suicide Silence anyday. I don't understand the hype of that band. In fact, you could make a mix cd of Whitechapel and Suicide Silence tracks, and I probably couldn't tell them apart. The breakdowns are predictable, and their riffs are all muddy and uninspired. It's bands like them that give metalcore/deathcore a bad rep from other metalheads. Remember mr.vj's post from earlier in the thread? I don't blame him at all for making it. I don't mean to step on anyone's toes here. This is just my opinion.

You're right about Whitechapel's second CD, but I thought The Somatic Defilement was actually quite good. Opinions will be opinions

I was listening to Parkway Drive on the way home today, and it's becoming increasingly evident that their music just never gets old to me. I just can't put my finger on what makes me like them so much.

Goddamn I wish I was living in America. Parkway Drive are touring with A Day to Remember around through october and november.

So, what are peoples opinions on A Day To Remember? I personaly really enjoy them.

I had never heard of them until now - listened to "The Downfall of us All" on Youtube, and I thought it was pretty good. Not as "heavy" as I generally prefer with all the clean vocals, but it's still enjoyable.

To throw another band out there, what's everyone's opinion on The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza? I sort of "rediscovered" them today, and am really enjoying their grind element.

Their bassist is loving insane as well - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JxAanEiV5w

How the hell did I forget to mention these guys somewhere? I loving love this band... at least up to their latest CD which I'm not crazy over. They're songs are just... awesome. I don't know how to describe it. Inhalant Abuse is easily my favorite song, and is a good example of how they play.

HHLL - Inhalant Abuse

The dual-vocals are what really get me. Is this exclusive to their Courtside Seats album?

E: So it's clear that most people feel the same way about ADTR's lyrics. I don't particularly care for them too much either - they remind me of the scourge to music that is Hollywood Undead.

And then there are people like my dad who swear that even bands where the lyrics are very clearly pro-Jesus and pro-Christianity is Satan's music because the vocals aren't clean.

This is my mom, spot-on. I was letting her listen to mewithoutYou (not exactly thread-related, but definitely a Christian band), and all she could talk about was how much "the lead-singer sounded like he was on drugs" or how "there's no way this music could be Christian".

Oh well, it's no biggie I guess.

I have a question: Is Enter Shikari classified as more of a electronic metalcore band or more along the lines of just electronic. Their most recent CD, Common Dreads, isn't exactly to my tastes, but I do kind of like their first one that is a little closer to metalcore.

Can anyone recommend me some metalcore that sounds like Johnny Truant? They're a loving amazing band and I'm really glad I got to see them before they split up (like, literally days before they did). I hadn't listened to them in a while and they came up on my iPod's shuffle today in the office and I was probably the only dude in a cubicle to headbang like a motherfucker in the entire building.

I've never heard of them before, and I only listened to two songs of theirs, but I would say to maybe give Carnifex a shot. I'm not amazing at associating sounds with other sounds, though, so I could be way off

Their vocals are kinda similar.

Just finished mixing a demo with my new band which I suppose could be classed as hard/deathcore (drums here). Probably for fans of Architects/Surfaces etc. I'd greatly appreciate some feedback from people who've been listening to the genre longer than I! Apologise about the crappy hosting but it's better than a myspace link

http://rapidshare.de/files/48158369...isease.mp3.html

That song has a very hardcore vibe to it - no gutturals/bree's so it's not deathcore. The playing is nice, but it's just not exactly my cup of tea

Edit: On an unrelated note, I just found this song today as well Attila - Soda in the Water Cup (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihw7EPYIM1Q). The first thirty seconds kick rear end, why don't more bands do the whole speedy-talking thing

They are the weirdest looking people I have ever seen in my life. The lead singer can't be more than 4 feet tall (slight exaggeration, but he is a tiny guy) and they always have the craziest facial hair. Last time I saw them, they all grew out wild mustaches. They're a trip hahaha.
