Metalcore/Emocore

Postby IggyJack » Sun Jan 25, 2009 5:09 am UTC

I don't know whether this is up anyones alley but could anyone recommend some good bands under these genre titles? I checked the search and nothing that i saw was really relating. I kind of like things that are melodic and heavy, and such. Please and thank you.

...Metalcore? Now I know for SURE that someone at Capital records is just trying to piss me off.

A friend got me onto Unearth, and that's about the limit of my knowledge.

Converge and Botch may fall under this category. The rest is mostly shit, in my opinion.

Thanks. Really i just wanted to have a recommendation of some heavy artists. The title kinda kills it though. I guess melodic and heavy is what i meant. I've listened to Unearth before, didnt really like it much.

Protest the Hero might fit, try "Sequoia Throne".
Silverstein would be more on the Emo side "Smile in your sleep".
Alexisonfire, Enter Shikari or Gwen Stacy might do too.

I dont know understand today's labeling and genre system. But check out Four Year Strong and Underoath.

I can also second Protest the Hero, great band.

Yeah, i'm aware that the labels have gotten weird as of late. Check one of my earlier posts to see what i meant by the title.

Neither metalcore or emocore, because those are crappy genres.

But Death Metal!

Some Caliban stuff is, but looking at the stuff on my iTunes it says all the stuff they've done is, but for that cross over you said about I'd suggest you look at the album The Awakening, it's a good one.
Also Unearth which someone said about earlier, saw them on Valentines day with 5 Finger Death Punch, Lamb of God and Dimmu Borgir good gig :)

Check out Drop Dead, Gorgeous if you're into kinda hardcore.

as said, Botch and Converge are good, also check out Rorschach, Integrity, Unbroken, Starkweather, Coalesce, PM me for some more if you're into this kind of stuff, but I personally think metal-meets-hardcore turns out much better in the realm of Crust, check out Hellbastard, Drop Dead, Totalitar, Skitsystem, and His Hero is Gone.

Emocore not exactly sure what you mean by that, If you're going traditionally, definitely check out Rites of Spring, Embrace, Moss Icon, but I imagine this isn't what you're looking for, perhaps stuff more like Pg99, Saetia, combatwoundedveteran?

At the Gates (along with Botch and In Flames) basically created what's now known as metalcore. By that I mean that every modern metalcore band just steals riffs from the aforementioned bands and calls it their own.

However, some bands that I like that occasionally are called metalcore are the Human Abstract, Protest the Hero, and Darkest Hour.
Check 'em out.

I don't think its really fair to say that one band "created" metalcore, bands have been fusing metal and hardcore/punk pretty much since the dawn of each, starting with Discharge (hell, even Motorhead was really doing it before punk even really existed), The Cro-Mags pushed it further in the early 80s, COC, and a shit ton of other bands. I'd say it really reached its peaks with the likes of Integrity, an all those (some equally good, some downright horrendous) 90's bands. Of course, this is coming more from the Hardcore/Punk side of things, and I seriously don't have the slightest idea what passes off as "Metalcore" these days. I could just be bitter because I could never really get into At The Gates, even though I love Skitsystem, Disfear, and all those bands.

Bullet for My Valentine is pretty good.

current good metalcore, check out Narrows (www.myspace.com/narrows) they have ex-members of Botch and Unbroken, and have a reallly botchy-vibe going on. I dig it.

Yeah, I suppose you're right, but whenever I hear one of the very, very many recent metalcore bands, it sounds really familiar, like I've already heard it somewhere. Then I'll go listen to some older melodic death metal and I'll realize why.
Haha, I'm coming from the metal side of it, that explains a bit.
The genre classifications are fucked up beyond all belief, no one really knows what's what anymore.

I Killed the Prom Queen would probably be my best recommendation. I've seen them play locally around where I live and they were very good. I haven't got the "Music for the Recently Deceased" album but I've heard some of the songs off it and it sounds good. I've got "When Goodbye Means Forever" and it's a pretty good album. I'd recommend either of those two.

Melodic metalcore?

I guess Demon Hunter would be a good choice, then.

this isn't at all what you're looking for, but I would suggest you check out From Ashes Rise, Tragedy, and Disfear. I think you might like them
