yes and no kinda, there are a few groups with black vocalist that don't go far. The scene their in
played a major part. Lets not forget about all the big shit bands that are out now. It doesn't take

Ugh, then after the part I was like, oh this sounds a bit too much like Through The Eyes Of The Dead, they go into the most GENERIC breakdown with a "dissonant" lead part possible.

The song lost all of its credibility by putting those two parts back to back.

It was always a way to seem, "elite," for metal heads to hate on up-and-coming deathcore bands before the scene blew up. On top of this, anyone who cares too much about their music tastes getting bashed vehemently denies liking all deathcore.

But you're not really somebody involved with the metal scene, so I'm not gonna expect you to know these things.

Hardcore kids always hated it because it's not really hardcore.

Metal kids always hated it because they don't like "hardcore."

The scene blew up, and now everyone outside the scene hates it. What's bigger, the deathcore scene, or every other trend and style in music added together?

no way is deathcore like nu-metal these days. back then nu-metal was so mainstream and everybody loved the shit out of it, deathcore is not mainstream at all and never will be. you cant compare the blowing up of the two at all. all the old school metalheads cannot keep living in the past and move on. i like both genres, death metal and deathcore it just annoys me hearing how much deathcore sucks coming from the old school fans because they cant adapt.

Defending good deathcore and defending oceano are 2 different things. I enjoy good deathcore that has actual substance and variation. This is usually only achieved with superior technicality as is the case with After the Burial and similar bands. Most deathcore is bad. period. This is coming from a deathcore fan. It's sad that the vast majority of good and original deathcore bands get overshadowed by the worst bands in the genre that just regurgitate "what deathcore should sound like", hence oceano, suicide silence, whitechapel, etc.........it's like if you wanna play grindcore, play grindcore! Don't pussyfoot around playing dissonant garbage and ultra slow breakdowns and act like it's "new" and totally br00tal.

These bands have very little to set themselves apart from their contemporaries, it's just a massive wall of cliches. Deathcore is a new genre and it already seems out of ideas. Yes, all genres have specific elements that make them what they are, but that has nothing to do with using the same exact formula over and over again without taking it anywhere new. Tell me at least two things that set this band apart from so many other deathcore bands out there, and no joke answers about the vocalist's race please.

Deathcore's been around for almost 20 years now, js.

And just because the majority of the bands in the genre are derivative retards, doesn't make it so that the entire genre is all the same. You could seriously make that blanket statement about ANY style of music bro.

Some bands I feel stand out:
Rifles At Recess: way ahead of their time in the mixing of melodeath and metalcore.
Knights Of The Abyss: a band that's been able to deal with a lot of sound changes successfully, without sounding forced - albeit they've dealt with a lot of line-up changes from the start.
Graves Of Valor: one of the most purely death metal deathcore bands there is, and they actually have hardcore elements most of their contemporaries.

I'll add more to my list when I have time, boyfriend's here. :D

I know metalcore has been around for a while, but "deathcore" has been around for 20 years? I guess I need to do some research.

Also, judging from the song posted above, Veil of Maya would be a lot better if they would stop stringing their songs together with generic breakdowns. At least the predictable guitar solos and other interludes that bands in other genres use sound less homogeneous. Pretty much the whole foundation of this genre lacks variation.

P.S. This whole "BRUTAL" thing is one of the worst things to happen to heavy music.

listen to stuff like veil of maya, within the ruins and BoO, they sound different to your cookie cutter deathcore. but its the same with every genre, you get most bands who stick to the genres main elements and fuse a formula together to use instead of branching out and trying to be creative. look at bands like korn, limp bizkit, slipknot, paparoch, they all sound a like but were way more popular than the deathcore bands today. its just annoying to see so many people hate on deathcore for having so many bands with a generic sound but not on any other genres.

-no, the people on that network deserve to die. also, i'm not an "old school fan" or whatever similar term you wanna use. i once loved the "core" genres back in high school but it got boring, unoriginal, and people started liking it even more when it got worse. now, its a relatively mainstream genre in the world of metal. every band does the same general shit. not something i can respect or appreciate.

wanna know whats on the rise for the "core"? a genre called "djentcore" watch out for it...think meshuggah with breakdowns and other "core" elements.
