this is the only metalcore from this year that's been genuinely great imo, but to be honest I haven't heard a ton of it (Unearth, ABR, maybe something else idk)

If The Long Haul count as metalcore, their half of the split with Kerouac was incredible

Digging: Hail Mary Mallon - Bestiary

still haven't listened to that, though I generally enjoy their stuff

but yeah didn't listen to BTBAM but ABR was pretty mediocre and Unearth was only slightly better. Haven't really listened to either since the first week they came out.

Deathcore:
All Shall Perish - This Is Where It Ends
Born Of Osiris - The Discovery
Beheading Of A King - Quasar: Preserving Legacy

Metalcore:
The Human Abstract - Digital Veil
Cave In - White Silence
Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth (they eliminated most of their metalcore influences but whatever :])
Hands - Give Me Rest

Just some non-generic stuff I really enjoyed this year, I hope you'll like these Blake

didn't get the impression that this was metalcore though

it's more along the lines of Converge or Poison the Well than any of the more "melodic" metalcore or whatever. But it's also very post-hardcore and sludge influenced.


Tyraelxy: heard the All Shall Perish and Born of Osiris records; weren't really my thing (ASP was definitely the better of the two). Will probably check out the others though.

This is metalcore through and through, just not the gay shit you're probably refering this to. They utilize alot of early 90s noise rock and bits of sludge but yeah, hardcore and metal = metalcore last time I checked.

And get on Mennonite asap.

Digging: Hans Zimmer - Interstellar

I don't think it's metalcore at all. It's sludgy noise rock that derives from the sound established by Unsane. KEN Mode copy plenty of their ideas actually. It's still cool though, but quite derivative at times.

Digging: Wildbirds & Peacedrums - Rhythm
