Metal bands? Nah, they just scraped Winds of Plague off of the Mayhem bill last year and dug up some "core" bands. Not interested.

I personally like Winds Of Plague, more because they are different from most of the other "core" bands out there. Other than that, nothing worth my time.

I actually decided to try out some Winds of Plague recently since I heard a couple of good things, but alas, NO! Just another example taken from Core-land.

This title is very misleading.

It depends what your definition of misleading is really....

METALcore is called METALcore for a reason, not to mention hardcore has been a genre of metal of decades.

Winds of Plague are decent, Word Alive would be decent if it weren't for the faggy clean vox, but so far this years warped sounds like the worst yet, and should just be called the "Faggy Scene Tour"
