Hatebreed covering refuse resist and i'm in Pain? That has to be the gayest thing i have ever heard. Jamey Jasta has only made one good record and thats kingdom of sorrow. All of his other albums his vocals sound like crap.

well basically the personify everything i hate about hardcore.
in october last year i had to sit through a whole bunch of god awful bands just to see obituary in sayreville new jersey.
so merauder comes on and its like everything i've heard all night whatever so me and my 2 friends are at the barrier basically(don't ask me why we had front row for a band we didnt like). blah blah blah breakdown, breakdown, whatever. thats my summary of their song structure. anyway.

so combined with sitting there for an hour and a half waiting for the only band i came to see, basically being bored to death through the sets of all those bands, and just being about bored out of my mind i wasnt in the greatest mood at the moment. So whatever, we're watching merauder do whatever they're doing, the fat hardcore dudes in their taxi cab driver hats and letterman jackets are hardcore dancing, and just when things cant seem to get any worse some fat lardass in a christmas sweater(zipper, snowflake and all) flies into us and punches me in the side of the head for no reason at all.

As much of an accident as it probably was, i was so p***ed. And from that moment on i vowed to hate hardcore for the rest of my existance.

np: Unleashed- Greatest of all Lies

^that explains a lot lol

meh, I dont think I could sit through an entire album of hatebreed putting their signature sound to all these great bands. the Sep cover was alright, sure, but did anyone hear the Slayer song? Butchered like cow meat. Ghosts of war should never sound like that.

Imagine a metallica song sung by Jamey Jasta...really, think about it. Then imagine the music has been torn down from it's classical epicness, remove the solo, and replace it with a breakdown. Granted, it is the simplest, most commercial Metallica song from their first four albums, but still, do you really want to see anything from those albums redone by Jamey Jackoff?

Now Playing: Origin- Ubiquitous

of course the solo wasnt done, hardcore musicians cant play guitar worth sh**, thats why all their verses are just one note that rings through the whole verse, followed by a palm muted chorus, and then a breakdown.

maybe if hardcore musicians stopped sitting around with thumbs up their a$$ they'd make music everyone wants to listen to and not just their heavyweight friends. (rolls eyes)

np: Marduk- Jesus Christ Sodomized
^ now these f***ers on the other hand can PLAY!

hah. It just caught my attention thatI'm in the middle of a conversation with you about how horrible a hardcore band, and the genre are, while siumultaneously listening to Origin, a band typically considered hardcore lol.

Between them, converge, and the DEP discography I'm downloading, you could almost start calling me a hardcore fan haha

Ironic, but iunderstandable if you realized the vast differences in the bands known and popularized within the textbook definition of contemporary hardcore(absolute sh**), and the bands I listen to(f***ing awesome). Understandable, but funny nonetheless. :P

Now playing: Pig Destroyer- Trojan Whore

lmao fan.

origin i could do without, but there's one song that i heard by them that is musically good to me (yes musically good, fight me about my horrific grammar then you textbook thumping whores).

A lot of people on this site dont understand my animosity towards hardcore and scene kids. Basically, new jersey's metal scene is one of the most diluted, dirty gene pools. There's too many bands, its like an ocean of sh**...on top of a landfill, which is basically what new jersey is when you think about it lol.

Of course i'd consider my band one that flies(or attempts to, lmao)fly the flag for true metal that has since been forgotten in the musical wasteland that is new jersey. There are many others. If you like thrash, you should check out Lethal Strike we've played with them a few times and they're really f***ing good so..do yourself a favor. Then there's Anticosm which is black metal they're all cool dudes too.

For christ sake though, E-town concrete came from the town across from mine (Eatontown, NJ). Do you think i have any pride in NJHM when bands like that are right in my backyard?

Obituary do breakdowns.
If you didn't want to see supports why did you go early then?
I'm not even going to bother arguing with you. No point, you know everything there is to know about hardcore. After all you saw what were probably deathcore bands and that's what people seem to think is hardcore these days.
Hatebreed covering Metallica. Makes me lol.

^you have to realize wiggles, the hardcore scene over her is waaaay different. So much sh** surrounding anything decent to the point htat it's damn near impossible to even look for the diamonds in the rough.

Even bands that would normally be considered decent are copy-catted to the point that the original band no longer sounds good at all to anyone.

Over there, at least the bands I've heard out of Australia, the scene seems to be like when hardcore started, back in england. Actual integrity and original bands all throughout.

And yes, Obituary uses breakdowns. So does Decapitated. So does Lamb of god. but not in EVERY song. that's the complaint. I can barely even stand it when a band has solo's in every song. metallica barely gets off, and Deicide too, because the solo's are just that good, but normally my tolerance is nil. I would rather the breakdown be used for what it was intended: a tool in the musical arsenal, not a staple of an entire genre. Other than that, I have no huge problem with hardcore that cant be overcome by a band that shows me otherwise, ie, Converge or DEP, like I said before.

I still dont get hardcore dancers though. Me and my friends keep a kill-count score tally at every concert for how many hardcore dancers we can kick in the chest. My record is 23. Why cant people just mosh and beat each other's brains out like decent human beings?

I used to mosh when I was younger. Stopped though. I liked the rush.
I love our scene here (Victoria). Tomo can back me up on this, our scene actually feels legit. No one aims to make money. No one wears eye make up, no one gives a f*** either lol.
Its funny, when you start going to hardcore shows you feel very intimidated, people are going apesh** everywhere, people are angry.
But now I've been going for years and I feel at home. You can tell the newbies haha.

I'll never forget being at a Hatebreed show (Monsters of Mayhem Tour, I believe) this kid kept kicking me in the back of the leg so I just kicked straight back and knocked him to the floor. So great but my leg was sore the next day which p***ed me off again. lol

A little off topic, I won tickets to a concert of Sworn Enemy and Kataklysm and some other sh** bands. I only like two songs by Sworn Enemy and Kataklysm kicks ass. How these two bands and other hardcore bands got put on the same bill is beyond me. But, there was a huge mix of people that were there to mosh to Kataklysm and an equal amount of people for the other bands. There were probably around 15 fights and half the crowd was gone by the time Sworn Enemy came on, hell even when Kataklysm came on! lol I left before Sworn Enemy came on, they were taking too long to setup.

I love hardcore music but can't stand the dancers. I don't get it and I see way too much of it at metal shows too. I dunno about the rest of England but in my town, the hardcore scene is f***ing horrible. Everyone involved in it has this holier than thou mentality and you can't speak to anyone there. And there's alot of guys wearing makeup and sh** music too. To be fair though, I haven't been to a local show in quite a while and it's been years since I went to a local hardcore show so maybe it's changed. But this is Swindon, so I doubt it.
