what, in ur opinion was the best hardcore/metalcore album of this past year? there have been lots of standouts. for me, i'd say
A7X - City of Evil,
As I Lay Dying - Shadows Are Security,
Trivium - Ascendancy.
they were all awesome in their own ways and no one of them can be classified as BEST imo.

what do u think?

i disagree, ascendancy was so much better that its in a different class altogether than those other albums.

All great albums. Few others. 'The Poison' by Bullet For My Valentine, 'Alaska" by Between The Buried And Me. Is that one 2005? I dunno, I just got it. Tie between City Of Evil and Ascendancy.

The Poison by BFMV and Acendency by trivium!!I've heard one or two songs from As I Lay Dying's album and it was quite impressive but I'll have to go with the two that I know so well!!They just have such an impact!!!

I would have to say The Fall Of Troy's "Doppleganger" was pretty sweet.

12-24-2005, 12:27 PM
the poison was good, for sure, but i dont think it ranked along wit the others. i think BFMV, talented as they are, need to mature a bit more musically. o yea, forgot to mention fall of troy. that was awesome

the best one is Trivium's Ascendancy. matt and corey solo for half the song on each track. they have to be the best soloing writters out there today. their music has had such an effect on my playing. everything about them inspires you to want to play faster, heavier, and write freakin awesome solos.

so yeah thats my vote. Ascendancy by Trivium.

Alaska is okay from what I've heard of it, overrated though. I'd say Shadows Are Security, not because it's actually a great album, but because it sucks so much exponentially less than Frail Words. Haha. That just shows how awful that album really is.

I'm pretty suprised on the hardcore forum. Ever since emo sneaked it's way into metalcore, this forums been full of Atreyu and Bullet For My Valentine Bull. Eitherway, this forum should be renamed into "core" genres. There are far more and more metalcore fans these days. Not complaining, I love my Killswitch.

Back onto the point... I brought Alaska and found that pretty overated. Not bad, but it isn't too great either. My Favourite album of the year (by far) is Cilents by The Red Chord. They can be found on pure volume. Brillant band. The Black Dahli Murder weren't too bad this year.

Ohh, I was a fan of Bullet For My Valentine. Their EP was pretty impressive, a little too emo but impressive. The Poison, that was a waste of money. That wasn't even metalcore - that was pop metal. Please, do not consider themselves worthy of hardcore, let alone metalcore.

*EDIT*

Probably my favourite album of the year was Ascendacy. I've listened it to death now but it still had the biggest impact on me.

alright can we all agree that "hardcore" in this forum generally includes metalcore, post hardcore, and everything else? Anyway I'd have to say the best "hardcore" album of the year for me would either be The Fall of Rome- Winter Solstice, or Son, I Loved You at Your Darket- As Cities Burn.

Go to the metal forum and call Trivium metal. See what happens to you. Ascendancy was a very good album, but it wasn't the Hardcore album of the year.

That honor goes to God Forbid-IV: The Constitution of Treason. Is there no love for these guys on this forum?

the poll is the MOST discussed bands, im not saying they are better then Blacklisted, and the likes, i liked those albums the poll is unbiased.

The thread is called Best Album of 05 ( Hardcore )
So the only bands listed should be hardcore bands or bands that fall under that similar category , ie metalcore ( as i lay dying ) , deathcore ( all shall perish ), etc.
You wont see someone go into the emo forums and post Protest the hero or Winter Solstice at best pop emo punk album of 05 thread, so they dont belong here polluting this thread. The people who post here should know wtf theyre talking about , talk about the things u know about.
A7X isnt hardcore , at most it might be crapcore , but if u ask me its rock/emo. i think most hardcore listeners will agree...come on its just common sense.
it has no place in this thread , and if this about the most disscused music , the pop emo listeners can just come here and start blabbering about green day and simple plan...ew...and thats the reason we have different forums.
so lets just get this out in the open-

A7X - ROCK/EMO

AS I LAY DYING - METALCORE

TRIVIUM - METAL/METALCORE

OBVIOUSLY if youve been around here at ALL the term hardcore in this forum covers a WIDE-RANGE. i just got through explaining that the hardcore thread involves SUBGENRES. use some common sense and thnik that the thread goes along the same lines! And its the most discussed hardcore music obviously, not any music lol. you wouldnt complain if you were a regular.

we all know what real hardcore is. trust me. There are just bands that fit no where else. if you have read this thread at all you would have seen why people like you just need to shush.

So, unless you're one of the types that doesn't think metalcore exists, then metalcore albums can be discussed in here.

My vote still stands for Constitution of Treason as best hardcore album of the year.

yeah dillingers album was really good.
UM , THE REASON I SAID A7X DOESNT BELONG HERE IS BECAUSE THEYRE PAST DOESNT MEAN **** HERE ,ITS BEST ALBUM OF 2005 , AND YES I HEARD THEM , I HAVE SOUNDING THE SEVENTH TRUMPET AND WAKING THE FALLEN.
and they sound nothing like they do now..
Yeah what r u saying exactly pmeg568c , that A7X's City of evil fall under hardcore ? explain this to me to me please , or should i ask one of the countless little girls who blast bat country from their cars and windows? or should i ask the emo boys who like to put the same makeup the singer wears...
there are like 3 places A7X belongs
NU METAL ( they belong next to korn and slipknot. )
ROCK ( theyre pretty soft , a little too ****ing soft to be listed under hardcore if you ask me )
EMO ( come on this one is obvious , wtf are guys doing with makeup on , not only that they appeal to the emo kids )

SO please , stop trying to justify your stupidity , A7X has nothing to do with hardcore , the closest they ever came was years ago. they dont belong here , DONT BELONG HERE UNDER HARDCORE , HARDCORE FORUM NO BELONGY , UNDERSTANDY?

they are other forums you can post them under

Ah , heres a thought - why dont you go to theyre myspace , numbnuts
http://www.myspace.com/avengedsevenfold
check out how they describe themselves. ( bull , theyre not metal..)
check out the bands they play with....they would get raped at a hardcore show , or no one would show at all.
Holy **** , look at theyre top 8 friends! My Chemical Romance! hoolllllly ****
so when is someone gonna post MCR as theyre fav hardcore band of 05? anyone?
the reason im mad is because i came here to see if there was any good hardcore to be found , and i find city of evil.
