So recently I was playing "Set To Fail" by lamb of god and my friend said.
"dude lamb of god is a sweet death metal band."
and I said
"they arent death metal"
and he said
"well what are they then?"
to which I had no reply. So I was wondering that the online community thinks. Personally I think they are a cross between groove and death.

Pure American Metal!!1!!!!1!11

A lot of people say metalcore/groove metal though. However, groove metal seems to just be a label metalcore bands give themselves to avoid being called metalcore. Ask in the Lamb of God thread.

Metal is a sub-genre of metalcore since metalcore is more popular therefore better.

they arent core because they dont use any breakdowns. So that cant be tagged onto them.

I love how people argue over genres like it's a matter of opinion.

No, wait, I can't stand that. It was oranges that I love. Oranges.

Personally I think they fit into groove the best after considering it.

In the middle of Laid to Rest? Right after that "see who gives a ****" part? That's as open-note and breakdownish as it gets.

Fuck off, all of you. Groove metal is hardly even a real genre. LOG is a metalcore band, but, ehhhh, a decent metalcore band.

The only metalcore band I really enjoy, because they don't sound like a typical metalcore band.

Indeed. Their chuggity-chug riffs are actually enjoyable. Though I may only be saying that because I got into them back when I was a metal noob.
