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?
>>
>>52339476
There was thread about this, listen to mathcore and progressive metalcore, avoid deathcore

Parkway Drive - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNvOVey0MSs

Pandora's Dawn - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWxDrwwu_0c

Affiance is also pretty good. They have a song called Call To The Warrior which is pretty popular

Listen to Protest the Hero.

>>52339476
honestly metalcore's not bad as long as you only listen to a select few bands and dont expose yourself to anything else in the genre ever.
>>
>>52339960
Protest the hero is not metalcore in any way.
>>
>>52339476
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
>>
Shai Hulud, Integrity, the list goes on

>>52340008
lol

Converge, Botch, Dillinger Escape Plan

best metalcore album coming through

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

Maybe not technically metalcore, but Intervals.

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.
>>
>>52340222
Don't forget 7 Angels 7 Plagues

Metalcore is as good a genre as any
>>
>>52340294
I'd probably blame Animals As Leaders and Meshuggah more than those two
>>
>>52340041
>>52340076
>>52340222
Pretty much all these bands. Metalcore gets a bad rap because it's most famous acts are awful and the fans are awful and look like bellends.
>>
>>52340143
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

>Are there any redeeming qualities of the genre?

You could sometimes use it to hook up with girls if you were a teenager.

RRRRRRRINGWORRRRRRRRM
>>
>>52340432
The Promise is great
>>
>>52340343

Skyharbor is definitely the best of their genre.
>>
Earth Crisis
The Dillinger Escape Plan
Integrity
Judge
Lionheart
Every Time I Die
Converge
Between The Buried And Me
Snapcase
Botch
Parkway Drive

Really, Metalcore isn't as bad as /mu/ says.

If you guys stopped being IMNs and learned to enjoy something that isn't sweeping prog tech-death, maybe you'd find you liked it.

>>52339476
Just wait till he's no longer 14-16

>the banner
Holy shit, haven't listened to these dudes in years. The Murder Mixtape branched the gap between hardcore and metal for me.

>>52340579
Best recs. I'd add Cro Mags, Prayer for Cleansing, Marauder, and Cold As Life.

>>
>>52339476
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
>>
>>52339476
Even the bands that people claim are good are teenage shit. People used to call BTBAM metalcore, but I don't think they are.
>>
>>52340721
Fucking thank you. An everyone's like wow you're music taste is so childish lol, fucking hipster fags.
>>

those bands you linked are fucking atrocious too. goddamn metalcore is shit.

Some of the less popular bands like the Hirsch Effekt and The number twelve looks like you are ace. However like most genres the majority of it is trash.

Your taste is music is childish, stop crying about it and fuck off
