Sumeriancore, Meet Mediaskcore. Come At It, Bro.

For those not as well-versed in metal(core), Sumeriancore is a term used to describe the fairly cookie-cutter production value that has defined the overwhelming majority of releases put out by the questionably Egyptian cult/record label over the past few years. Those familiar with the genre can easily distinguish a Sumerian band within the first few notes of any given song. 2010-11 has brought on a slight change in their formula, but it remains for the most part intact and very much evident in the latest records of bands like After the Burial and Born of Osiris. And while this may seem lazy and unoriginal on their part, it?s really no different than the near plagiarism that has been plaguing the genre as a whole for years now. In fact, the aforementioned Sumerian bands are actually some of the more talented and progressive acts in the metal scene today.
