Their lyrics are not all emo their themes are about dermination, supremacy, not failing, passion, betrayal, self preservation, and focus. Same positive lyrics as Shadows Fall, Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying, Hatebreed, and Throwdown. I think emo music is also in the style in how you sing like Hawthrone Heights with the soft whinny boy voice (you know what i'm talking about), metalcore is not emo its f**king metal

my prob. with metalcore is that every f***in band sounds exactly the same as the last and too many bands add too many emo influences too their sound (one piece of emo is enough to kill it) i will admit i like KSE, Shadows Fall (not to into there new stuff), Darkest Hour (there newest one wasnt really metalcore), and God Forbid

slayerdisciple i understand where you are coming from, but i think death metal kinda sounds the same in vocals, don't get me wroung i really do like death metal like Arch Enemy, Satyricon, Gojira, Amon Amarth, Early In Flames, to name a few but i love all those band because of the vocal range shifting, i guess the apeal of metalcore is in the postive lyrics and versitiy of the vocals like in Trivium's Ascendancy How they would go from brutal, to melodic chours, to solo, brutality, extended chours, brutal/solo finish. You see those patterns i think. i think with metalcore you find a balance between positive and negative emotions, because we deal with both constantly. i know what you mean with some those bands that borderline emo like Endwell, at times sound sometimes metal others the whiny emo boy voice happens, i would rather listen to Lamb of God or , i also think Shadows Fall and God Forbid are becoming more Trash influences these days their still metalcore. What makes an emo band is the image they project, not the lyrical content, but if a band sings a chours soft it does not make them emo nessarilly

I was just rattling off death metal bands i listen to. i know they are differnet subgenres like melodic death metal, blacken death metal, progressive death, and regional forms of death metal ie Scandinavian Death Metal etc.. i am not saying those two bands sound the same or have similiar lyrical content. I just think death metal vocals/growls aren't as ranged as metalcore vocals. Death Metal's vocals are more agressive and brutal, and a lot harder to master singing them.

Yes it seems as normal someone has failed to read my/rks posts. Satyricon are f***ing black metal - The fact you think they're death shows a pretty big gap in your metal knowledge - Hence, I really don't take your critisizm of death metal vocals seriously. And what!? Metalcore barks are possibly the most bland vocal emotion possible.

Expressive/Ranged death metal vocals - Cynic, Obituary, Cryptopsy, Fear Factory (just early, and more industrial), Lykathea Aflame, hell even Morbid Angel on tracks like "God of Emptiness", Oxiplegatz (a wide margin but whatever), Gorguts etc... and as far as positive lyrics, metal is full of them.

Captured past and future

Cynic, Thats fine man, but not all metalcore has soft melodic chours like Blood Has Been Shed, Unearth, A Life Once Lost, Agony Scene, Newer In Flames or Heaven Shall Burn to name a few.

Those 3 Black Metal bands started in Late 1970's, thats when Death Metal formed around that time, touche, You really know what you talking about, im impressed. I always just figured black metal as a sub genre of Death, but i now agree their are too many differances, i guess it all demends on who you talk to.

My original point was i like heavier metal (ie Black and Death) as well as metalcore

the closest thing to '70s thrash that i can think of is motorhead. that's it. i'd hate to be a d*** Zero 54, but do some research about heavy metal before you post again. a great book that i would STRONGLY recommend you check out is Ian Christe's 'Sound of the Beast'. its heavy metal 101 and then some.

and not to keep beating a dead horse, but death metal and black metal are two totally separate SUB-genres. yes, you may be able to find some similarities between them, but that's because they belong to the same genre. everything in a sub-genre will have some similarities with other sub-genres in the same genre...duh...that's how their linked.

It's quite funny to think that if you call Venom black metal, then in some way Black Metal preceeded Thrash. The truth is their is no exact date for anything, heavy metal moving to Thrash and co was a incremental process.

This is an part of an article for wikipedia on trash metal, i was just bassing my assumptions off that, i was not alive when these bands formed i was just going from what i read here it seems that 1970's trash was exisitant but not popular or influencal until the early to mid 80's

Beginnings
1981 is seen as a critical year for the development of thrash metal, but work prior to 1981 helped shape the genre. Earlier influences on the genre include the 1975 Black Sabbath song "Symptom of the Universe", the first riff of the song is one of the earliest thrash riffs. The 1971 Black Sabbath songs Into the Void and Children of the Grave were also influential. Queen's "Stone Cold Crazy" from their 1974 album Sheer Heart Attack was unusually heavy and fast for the time and the song was covered years later by the thrash metal band Metallica. "Am I Evil" from Diamond Head's 1979 album Lightning to the Nations had a style similar to Stone Cold Crazy. German prog-metal band Night Sun had perhaps the fastest examples of early thrash metal appeared on the band's 1972 album Mournin' that featured the songs "Plastic Shotgun" and "Nightmare".

The Stooges early work had a profound influence on Motörhead. The songs "I Got a Right" and "Gimme Some Skin", released in 1973, utilized a simple and fast paced beat that metal and punk thrash music would later come to resemble.

Judas Priest's 1978 song "Exciter," from the Stained Class album provided direct influence upon the development of the genre. The fast kick-drum intro and fast guitar solos of the track were notorious for artists of the era. Judas Priest was not a thrash band themselves, but thrash bands like Slayer, Venom, Anthrax, Metallica, and Megadeth cite them as a major influence.

Motörhead's fast and aggressive music was a major influence on the genre. Motörhead's 1979 Overkill LP may have been the inspiration for the name of the New York based band[citation needed] In 1981 Overkill would write what is often considered the first thrash metal song: "The Beast Within". Soon after "The Beast Within" was released, a Southern California band named Leather Charm would write the song "Hit the Lights". Leather Charm was a short-lived band that would soon break up. The primary songwriter for Leather Charm, James Hetfield, formed Metallica which would go on to feature this song.

Mallcore is a derogatory term or type casting for the several musical genres that may be considered metal or punk by the mainstream audience , but that are not considered so by the critics, bands often considered mallcore are My Chemical Romance Atreyu Slipknot Korn. Mallcore Kids are like Teenie Bobbers who hang out at the mall all day who act and like the music to fit in or to identify with, they are possers, emo or scence kids, and hot topic goths

Erm, Zero I think "identify" needs to either be explained or removed from your definition of a "mallcore" fan because I identify with, or relate to my favorite bands (Lamb of God, All Shall Perish, In Flames, Soilwork, Arch Enemy). That's the whole point of listening to or writing music. And I know none of my favorites are mallcore.

Stone Sour is the Future of hard rock because Corey will continue Stone Sour long after Slipknot ends after this last album,Doomsday Machine and The Blackening prove those bands are not past their prime at all. As I Lay Dying and Killswitch Engage have stong mainstream fan bases from all kinds of people because of the message of their music/positive lyrics, and balance of beauty and brutallity. I love Shadows Fall and Lamb of God, both are in their Prime, (perhaps not in quality but i don't think so, never the less their influence and support bases exploded,) Lamb of God has become so big the last 2 years selling over 1.3 million records. Gojira and Trivium are both popular young bands and will be the future of metal. i have never heard of those bands rk mentioned i will have to check them out

Lamb Of God's Sacrament is not a mediocre album at all, it's just an evolved sound from thier previous albums but the music is just as heavy and kicks just as much ass. Unearth's new album rules too

I really don't care who's popular and who's in their prime - I/We care about metal. Bottom line, those are metalcore bands. This is a metal site, I think metalcore is sh**. Long live metal etc. Enslaved's not to bad from what I hear, my friends has Isa, I'll have to borrow it off him some time.

Will do. Though, it seems that at the moment the amount of black/viking/folk music is disproportionately filling up my music collection at the moment. I mean, I do like those genres and realise they're the in thing at the moment - But where's all the prog/death/thrash?! Any recommendations are welcome.

I suppose I'll give my picks for the future of metal: Bleed the Sky, Scar Symmetry, All Shall Perish's predecessors will decimate, and I'm pretty sure Lamb of God, Meshuggah and Arch Enemy will continue shredding our ears for a while. 3 Inches of Blood and Six Feet Under will continue to pulverize. I know they're disliked but I agree that KsE, AILD, and Shadows Fall will stick around. I think Burn In Silence has a good future, as does The Agony Scene (maybe, if they still exist, I haven't heard any news about them). Graveworm is doing well and so are Draconian. This Ending is a good band. I think Gorgoroth has a future once they get passed imprisonments. Gojira have a huge future if they don't fvck it up. And so do Trivium.

Now I don't necessarily like all of those bands, but they are the future and I can't deny numbers.

Heh I forgot Heaven Shall Burn. And as far as rock goes (even though this is a metal site) I think Stone Sour is right on. A long with 10 Years and Breaking Benjamin. Sevendust took over numetal for me.

So basically you all think the future of metal is metalcore. Great. I think I might go kill myself now.

I didn't say metal's complete future is metalcore. It's just involved. Kinda like how I have to live with hearing rap and country being in Iowa. Or how everyone asks about Slipknot. There's something to die over.... Seriously every metal band that comes from here now will compared to them.

There is a mile difference between Minor Threat/Blag Flag roots of thrash metal and Gothen/core/whatever passes for Hardcore these days. My (male) flatmates are all Hardcore nuts and laugh at this sort of sh**.

Yeah, Sonata Arctica write some pretty catchy stuff, like "Ain't Your Fairytale". You listen to Manowar?

the only hardcore element in second wave metalcore nowadays is just breakdowns and some riffing anyway........ though if you want a good example of metallic hardcore, check out converge and botch. unearth are also really good, nothing really metalcore about them other than the breakdowns, and they use them really well.

oh, i've never heard anything of manowar, but the way some people describes them to me really put me off.

np: orphaned land-the kiss of babylon(the sin)

also, check out between the buried and me for some great progressive metalcore. they're more technical progressive death metal/grindcore/whatever nowadays anyway, but BTBAM still has some core elment in it.

Don't let that put you off - I was the same but their cheesyness is more infectious than the plague. Listen to "Guyana (Cult Of The Damned)" (The song that got me hooked), Hail To England, Mountains - Hell pretty much all their stuff is quality. I have that Orphaned Land album too, not bad. Very Opethy.

I think modern MDM is boring and unoriginal, and any tint of post-hardcore in metal makes me wan't to smash things. Because of my dislike of Dillenger Escape Plan I doubt I'll warm to Converge or Botch (gut feeling here).

well, one good thing converge and botch have against TDEP is the production, which doesn't make the guitars sound like a distorted mess. that's why the only TDEP i really like is the irony is a dead scene EP (also the fact that i'm a mike patton fanboy =P). much better vocals too. fits the music better.

still, if you haven't yet, check out BTBAM. they remind me of a more brutal and technical opeth.

also, the only power metal that i really like is sonata arctica.

Just to put it out there, BFMV are NOT emo, just take a listen to the solo on "4 Words (To Choke Upon), bfmv are metalcore, i dont think an emo band could solo as good as they do, BUT there is way way waaaaaaay better solos then them, so ya..... i guess

I would call B4MV emocore. I say because he seriously uses their vocal style and the guitars spend more time in acoustic melodies than rhythmic/harmonizing riffs. But I think they're good guys and I'll listen to their next cd. I'm curious where they take their sound. ATR is undoubtedly metalcore though. Singing period does not equal emo.
