hi this is some words of explanation for you genre cunts:
how was born metal:
how was born metalcore
Therefore METALCORE and all of core music ISN'T METAL
and i'm fuckin' proud of it - metalcore is better than this shit.
not him but ok so we're gonna go back to a confusing time, pay attention lil jimmy
so it was the late 80s, early 90s, crossover thrash bands were old hat, death metal and black metal were coming into prominence, as well as sludge metal, during this a few bands fused metal and New York style hardcore in a new way
as you can hear, clear thrash influence-
in time this style slowly evolved into what was known as melodic metalcore, the metalcore most know, due to bands such as killswitch engage basically backpacking the same album-
metal is an offshoot of hardrock, which comes from rock n' roll, which has it's roots in country, blues, and further down the chain, ragtime.
punk was basically bread from artschool students and scumbags in new york and somewhat in UK, but that was more of a fashion statement (but to be fair, the NY scene was basically a weird fusion of the velvet underground and krautrock, bands like suicide, in the beginning)
....continued after my smoke.
So what ended up happening in the NY scene was in some ways greeting with UK scene, and punk had found it's identity, which for the most part, people who didn't know how to play their instruments very well, learning power chords, and vocally stressing vocal chords, much like what was happening in the nwobhm scene in the UK (along with the UK punk scene), and then we start seeing bands like motor head, who had been around for awhile, but fusing the genres together.
so it (punk) offshoots to DC, where it get harder and faster, and the birth of hardcore punk (but technically in japan with the band gasenta years prior), but something else is happening in Florida
in Florida, death metal is being created, death, morbid angel, and countless others are creating a scene that is very heavy like metal, and don't give a fuck like punk, and though we skipped thrash (which is important) we're leading to the 90's
so in the 90's we get botch, converge, and dillinger, which all portray traits of everything i listed before.
these bands are heavy, fast, experimental, and during their respective scenes, didn't give a fuck, and those are the bands that gave birth to metalcore.
>i like subgenre
>i don't like genre
>thus, subgenre isn't genre
Funny, usually people want the reverse
Metalcore and deathcore are far more metal than punk and you can't change that.
