You might be right, but the Unsane references seem more palpable and I'm quite sure Deadguy were also influenced by them.

Ummm last time I checked, this had massive breakdowns, huge metallic hooks, and godforsaken hardcore mixed together with a dash of noise rock. That definitely qualifies this as metalcore through and through. Whatever though, glad people love this album.

And yes, Unsane rule, especially the album the put out this year!

Digging: Downer - Downer

Album's metalcore, people saying it isn't are being silly. Album fuses metal and hardcore (as well as may other sounds), so that makes it metalcore. Doesn't matter what the genre sounded like before or if this is the only decent metalcore album, no matter what your standars are, this here band be metalcore. They even class themselves as a band that fuses noise rock, metal and hardcore.


Also, album slays. Band riffs hard. Sweet review, Wiz.

I'm sure this has been beaten to death in the previous 5 pages of comments, but after finally listening to this, it's not metalcore. It's not even really close at all. I mean if it was metalcore, it would still be good, but get the genre labeling right...

It's metalcore with noise rock influence. Very simply to understand and if you would like, I can prove it to you:

Ummm last time I checked, this had massive breakdowns, huge metallic hooks, and godforsaken hardcore mixed together with a dash of noise rock.

Listen again. It's like there's a stigma attached to the genre and it's blocking peoples receptors in the brain that link metalcore to "can be great sometimes".

Converge was my favourite band for years. that coupled with the comparisons to Deadguy and Unsane have convinced me that this is worth a check.

Guess I'll start here.
