They say the number seven is lucky...

So, this is the end (for now......) for this type of list of mine. Shoutout to Botb, AccompliceOfMyDeath, DeadBitchAlexis (Moog bby), Marskid, TheMightyScoop, JeetJeet, Deezer666, DarkSideOfLucca, OxME, calmrose, splinter, dbizzles, and everyone else who liked, hated, commented and recommended bands/albums on my lists, including my metalcore list that kickstarted this whole journey in the first place. I know they won’t see it, but I also want to give a shoutout to friends of mine over on The Daily Mosh who also provided me with fun recommendations, so cheers to Blacksalt, V9733xa, Chainbreaker, Stringypoo, Corvus and Zerotoleranxe. You all provided me with a fun and enjoyable history lesson that I probably wouldn't have gotten to until much later in life, and while I still like listening to modern metalcore, you all made it damn hard not to listen to modern metalcore and not get bored by it. So take a bow, all of you, and without further ado...
1Unwound
Leaves Turn Inside You


I think I may have picked the wrong Unwound album to be featured on my homework list, but damn is this some blissfully divine stuff! Bearing little to no post-hardcore trappings in their sound here, instead Unwound sound as if the best things of Oasis and Radiohead were culled together, creating such a delicious sound here; I was initially disappointed that this didn’t reach the requirements I set for the list, but through the album’s runtime it won me over completely. Vocals and instrumentals are excellent and the tone and flow at absolutely delightful. Loved this. Loved it loved it loved it.

56A Textbook Tragedy
A Partial Dialogue Between Ghost and Pri


Pulling off one of the best aural bait-and-switches I’ve heard in a while, A Textbook Tragedy make sure you’re unprepared for their particular brand of math-infused post hardcore when they get going. Sounding very focused despite the musical tendencies of the genre, the band pull off a solid-sounding effort with this, and I applaud them for it. The vocalist was very confident and solid, the instrumentals were tight and well done, especially so when you think of how many tangents this album touched upon, the tone was good and the flow was serviceable, only because some tracks kind of bled into one another, which might throw some people off when they realize they’re one track 5 instead of 2; minor quibble tho.

85Inside The Beehive
Drink Bleach; Live Forever


So caustic it may put a hole through your speakers, so viciously visceral and all
packaged neatly within 20 minutes, Inside the Beehive drop a bombshell, let alone the mic, with this album and walk out like complete badasses. I still can’t get over how good this is; this sounds as if TDEP and HHLL has a baby, and it’s a cousin to The End (CAN). Vocals are absolutely blistering and have an excellent range to them, instrumentals are fucking top-notch, and the tone and flow are superb. Absolutely top tier -core work right here.

Feasting On The Will of Humanity


Very solid and capable hardcore that skews toward the meat-and-potatoes side of the spectrum, For The Love Of still put on one hell of a performance with this album. Opting to disregard technical frills for in your face aggression and tone, there’s something to be enjoyed by this basic approach. Vocals had that classic hardcore feel to them, in which range is jettisoned for brute emotion and the instrumentals are very solid, going hard and heavy for 99% of the time but throwing in traces of melody here and there. Tone, you already know about, and the flow was solid. All in all a pretty good hardcore album.

3.8/5
101Throwdown
Haymaker


Another album like the one above that doesn’t aim for lofty musical heights but is more than satisfied to produce an album that is meant for one to lower one’s head and fucking MOSH; as such, the lyrics are simplistic in view and vocabulary, and the instrumentals are fucking heavy. Tone and flow follow suit in simplicity, and at the end of the day this element of simplicity is all one needs from time to time, no?

3.3/5
