|Generic Hardcore List #21342|
Neocrust, metalcore, beatdown, ya know. Just some shit that makes you feel like you're both kicking ass and getting your ass kicked at the same time.
|1||Full of Hell|
Rudiments of Mutilation
Whoever came up with "neocrust" is a genius. Also: how did nobody figure that one out before?
|2|| ||Loma Prieta|
Counts as skramz I guess?
|3||Birds in Row|
French post-screamo-sludge-core; otherwise known as the Throatruiner Records sound.
Atmospheric version of the aforementioned sound.
|5||As We Draw|
Lines Breaking Circles
I believe this band predated all the other current French hardcore bands. Could be wrong though.
|6||The Acacia Strain|
Always room for junz with your skramz.
How Hate is Hard to Define
Basically the best and most frantic Throatruiner band.
|8||The Bastard Noise|
A Culture of Monsters
Really out-there mix of pv and just weird, noisy experimentation.
|9||Face the Rail|
Face the Rail
|10||Float Face Down|
If you treat good deathcore as hardcore (which I totally do), then this is one of the funnest damn hardcore albums on earth. Also, really good deathcore hurr.
|11||Children of God|
We Set Fire to the Sky
Love dat neocrust.
Europe's gotten crazy good about metalcore. Really fuzzy, post-hardcore-y, yelly goodness. And I guess I'm just a sucker for dual vocals.
|14||Call of the Void|
Dragged Down a Dead End Path
Super angry neocrust. You almost have to wash the sludge off of your eardrums.
|15|| ||(the) Plasmarifle|
While You Were Sleeping, the Whole World Changed in an Instant
The last deathcore album I'll put here, promise. And probably one of the best deathcore albums I've ever heard. These guys are all over the place in a very impressive way.
|16||Rot in Hell|
As Pearls Before Swine
Just some straight up violent hardcore.
Considering how old this band is, I guess they've probably got to be very influential on the modern hardcore/p-h/skramz/crust scene.
|18|| ||No Zodiac|
Hardcore band that has obviously listened to tons of Devourment. Dudes are mad as hell. This is called beatdown, which apparently comes from Hatebreed? Although I don't really hear it.
Probably one of the top albums of 2013, definitely.
|20||Bring the Heat|
Another beatdown band, drop-tuned all the way to hell.
Are these guys considered part of the scene, or are they not allowed? Either way the Chariot always fucking slays.
|22||The Rodeo Idiot Engine|
Fools Will Crush the Crown
Kind of a lesser-quality Throatruiner band. Still good though, a lot fuzzier than the rest of them.
Crush Kill Destroy
One of the only old-school pv bands I like.
The one modern pv band that EVERYBODY likes!
Sentenced to Life
I guess this doesn't really belong, but the sweetness of blackened thrash mixed with the current neocrust/d-beat sound is too tough to not mention.
Very punky grindcore. HELL IS THE FIRST KNOCK AT THE DOOOR
Sludgy hardcore, almost beatdown but not quite thick-skulled enough.
|28||Kowloon Walled City|
This belongs even less than Black Breath, but their early shit is pretty punky ya know?
|29||Clinging to the Trees of a Forest Fire|
Songs of Ill Hope and Desperation
Sludge, death, black, and hardcore-influenced grindcore that will kick your fucking ass, piss on you, and then eat your damn heart out. On a side note, if anyone knows where to find Omega Drunk on the Blood of the Alpha, it would be much appreciated.
|30||The Phantom Carriage|
A Throatruiner band that tries a little too hard to sound like an emo Mr. Bungle, but they're still pretty sweet.
Seizures in Barren Praise
Probably the most well-known of the bands taking crust and the HM-2 pedal together to make hardcore, but frankly, Trap Them needs no introduction.
Probably the first band to mix black metal and emo, and the best at it, too.
He is Never Coming Back
the name sounds pretty generic, but this is actually one of the better D-beat bands around.
|35||Young and in the Way|
I Am Not What I Am
"Blackened crust punk" technically, but it seems to me that these guys do it a lot differently from everyone else. But I basically jock them on every list I do, so I'll just stop there.
The Funeral of God
Definitely metalcore and all, but Zao's probably one of the best religious -core bands.
