There are quite a few threads giving examples. Just check them out.

I am more of a fan of Post Hardcore myself, its more progressive, has more room for creativity, and more often than not is more melodic.
I love Hardcore too mind.

Post-Hardcore can be great but can also be dead boring. It lacks energy.

I need a definition of post-hardcore. I don't understand how Hopesfall, Trophy Scars, Fugazi and Quicksand can be put in the same category.

Random question: what is He Is Legend? Post hardcore? I sorta think so but I'm not too sure what to call them.

Trophy Scars = <3

Massive amount of threads on this topic. It's getting ridiculous.

I never really got into post-hardcore, but I might check out Trophy Scars and Fugazi if I ever have the time.

There was a Post-Hardcore thread not to long ago. I like Post-Hardcore better than Hardcore. My favorite Post-Hardcore bands are Glassjaw, Hopesfall, Trophy Scars, and Thursday

Thanks. :thumb:

Yeah, but I still think they can be pretty cool. Some of their songs are just plain boring, but some like The Seduction are pretty cool.

Post Hardcore has more diversity in it, I guess ppl can make their own mind up if that's good or bad.

Fugazi is incredible.

So all of you are saying theres no definition of "post-hardcore" or "hardcore" its just what the band decides?

Wow
10-19-2005, 06:03 PM
There's a definiton. Basically it's bands who took the fundamentals of hardcore and put their own little twist to it to differentiate it enough to not be straight up hardcore.


Like I said, listen to Trophy Scars. They have some very noticable emo influences, but they have their own style.

I like Post-Hardcore better, but both are good.

Exactly...it's like progressive rock, sort of...it's still "rock" but the group put their own spin on things.

The reason all these different bands can be put into Post-Hardcore is that they each took different elements of Hardcore and made it their own.

Am I strange to love hardcore but not post-hardcore even the minor differences?

Wow

No, not really.

Its wierd, i like barely any hardcore, but most post-hardcore is easy for me to get into and like. Glassjaw, Thursday, and At The Drive-In are some of my favorite bands, and im trying to find stuff from quicksand and texas is the reason in the record stores around here.

Hey, it says that they're post-hardcore, but I listened to some of those bands you guys listed, and they don't sound like them. I think they sound kind of similar, but not close enough to be considered same genre. Maybe I'm wrong, I don't know. I just want to hear what you guys have to say.

The main reason is that they suck.

I find this to be true.

But to answer his question: As said before, post-hardcore is hardcore with the bands own personal style attached , so you're going to get alot of bands that sound different.

It doesn't make sense that Glassjaw, Fugazi and Quicksand can all be called post-hardcore. THE SYSTEM IS BREAKING DOWN.
