How do bands add such dissonance to their breakdowns? Augmented fourths? Minor seconds? What are they doing to create such beautiful cacophony?
#2
They chug the same note over and over because itz teh brootalz and it make the scene kids throw their money at them. Usually you drop tune and palm mute the **** out of any random fingering (I say random because they don't really know what intervals they're using) you find on the only two strings that hardcore bands use.

You know what band creates beautiful cacophony? Converge. That's the real shit right there.

....I don't know..

Quote by SadistNation
Minor seconds, augmented fourths/diminished fifths, major sevenths (it's essentially a backwards minor second). Also a chord that i love to use is a minor second build on top of a major sixth.

And I'll have to try this sometime
#20
Can somebody pm me and school me on what is being talked about pretty much this whole thread? I know how to play the stuff ,but I don't what any of it means.
#21

C---8----------
G---5-----------
C---3------------

i see it a lot in hardcore, i think it might be considered a power chord also.

My favourite is:

C---3----------
G---8----------
C---1----------


What?
Surely:
C---3----------
G---X----------
C---1----------

Is more or less the same, and easier?

Thar's some dissonance. I don't play hardcore though.

e|-0
B|-6
G|-8
D|-0
A|-0
D|-0

I've never heard that one before but it's got 4 consecutive notes from the chromatic scale plus an A, so it should be pretty darn dissonant.

Haha.
That intro is pretty damn fiddly when you add the B string notes.

Speaking of Converge
My ex-girlfriend is being "pursued" by some gimp who thinks that Converge is overrated and instead plugs bands as original as this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVE4j-Or6Z8&feature=PlayList&p=E38A041FCA81C0A6&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=17

You can actually predict the next sections throughout the entire song.
I Lolled.

EDIT: The guitarist is wearing a Jane Doe shirt

The lack of originilaity is astonishing
On first listen I thought "All it needs is an incredibly generic breakdown outro"
Then it came and I actually lolled.

Maybe its just me, but did anyone find it very odd that one of their guitarist was using a telecaster in the video? I know that they're pretty good guitars, but it just looks really out of place for that band

Their bassist's face at 0:12 made me laught pretty hard
