07.02.15 Metalcore with sick hammer-ons

Metalcore with sick hammer-ons

Most of my favorite metalcore bands feature lots of spiraling hammer-ons and cool dissonant riffs and time changes. Looking for more stuff like this!
1Seizures
The Sanity Universal


Probably my favorite metalcore album, takes everything I love about the genre and gives it a dense, spacey atmosphere with some of the sickest riffs I've ever heard. This album whisks you through beautiful nebulae before sucking you into the darkness of a black hole.
2Botch
We Are the Romans
3Knut
Challenger


Takes the sound I described above and puts it in a blender with slow, sludgy segments in the vein of early Isis. Sludgy, icy, calculated metalcore.
4Coalesce
Functioning on Impatience
5Keelhaul
Subject To Change Without Notice


This one ventures more into prog territory with lots of instrumental segments, but still has a similar riffing style to the other bands on the list. Tends to meander at times, but riffs hard.
6Breather Resist
Charmer
7Norma Jean
O' God The Aftermath


You can call them Botch rip-offs, but that's only true if you consider Botch to be Deadguy rip-offs. Either way, this album is a great slab of metalcore with lots of sick riffs both technical and groovy.
8The Chariot
Everything Is Alive, Everything Is...


Probably the band's most underrated album, this takes a lot out of both the Coalesce and Botch playbook while adding a bit of their own southern flair. Josh Scogin spits fire.
9Burnt By the Sun
Soundtrack to the Personal Revolution
10The Ocean
Aeolian


The only metalcore-related thing The Ocean has really done, but it happens to be one of the best in the genre. Tons to digest here.
