What Wave Are You?

I've always wondered why I have such a hard time liking new music rtrends. I mean, things rlike djent and deathcore. I can still listen to a rcouple of bands in those genres, but it's like rthe whole movement doesn't meanra lot to me.rOddly enough, my favorite bands all had their rbest moments in one rparticular piece of time: late 90's - early 00' (it probably helps that I rwas rborn in the early 90's). So this metalcore/post-hardcore movement had a rcopious ramount of influence on me, to the point where it defines my rpersonality. So I imagine that rtime as the "late 90's - early 00's core rwave".rAnd I'm pretty sure all of you guys have some ridea of what your "wave" rwas, which I'd be more than happy to hear. Cheers!

Back when Kurt Ballou was not making every deathwish band sound exactly the same, he
was churning out masterpieces like this one. The most brilliant use of atmosphere in a
metalcore album I've ever heard.
Jane Doe

C'mon, you expected this one. Words don't really do it justice.
3The Dillinger Escape Plan
Calculating Infinity

It simply broke any notions about how music should or shouldn't be made. I SMELL THAT
4Every Time I Die
Hot Damn!

Yum, fun metalcore! (fantastic lyrics to boot)
Worship and Tribute

Stuck Pig is the heaviest song ever, even if it's only using a couple of chords.
6Poison the Well
The Opposite of December

Best "Verb the Noun" band ever.

In the Library of Horrific Events

Alright, so this is 2005, not exactly early 00's. But I feel it's one of the "newer"
bands that captured that ol' metalcore feeling.
8KEN mode

Same reason as #7. Raw as fuck.
