Pit, I come here to tell you of news of great importance, I am afraid the whole "crabcore" thing has spread much further and quicker than we could have imagined.

Prog-crab

Crab-pop

Is it bad that I love both songs and think the whole synchronised headbanging thing looks awesome?

45 seconds onwards in the first one. It's not as obvious as the Stick Stickly crabs, but it's still there, trust

As for the second video, wait for the breakdown, at about 52 seconds onwards, and then at 1:35 onwards, and finally at 2:28. Not as crabby as the original, but the moves and stances are still there

Also, I added the crab to both songs because I thought it was amusing. Clearly not

First song's post-hardcore, second one's electro-pop-rock with the occasional breakdown. If you want the REAL genres

Wtf is this crab.


I c wut u did thar.

The first one isn't prog. Not by a long shot.

Crabcore ftw though.
#16
First one was not too bad, poor quality though. Second was hilariously bad IMO. And synchronized headbanging is awesome most of the time. Both of thee were better than the famous music innovators, Attack Attack!, known for inventing the Crabcore and Crabcore-affiliated moves.

I know that one's not because it's a cover of an electro song, but their own stuff is, trust me. It's like progressive post-hardcore? aha

This is a plague and should be wiped out now before it continues to spread. Emo assholes need to stop trying to be metal, because they're just bringing the whole genre down, and go back to cutting themselves so we dont have to.

The fact that you like it brings your whole musical taste into question. They all look like women, sound like 14 year old boys who are angry because they're WoW account just got cancelled and can't play the guitar for ****. The synchronized headbanging is cool when good bands do it, and do wear ****ing painted on pants and asinine giant "V" neck shirts that come down to their nipples and show their retarded chest tattoos. Their hair is gayer than an 80's glam band and their crab like movements make we want to punch every newborn baby to death just so that there is no possible chance of another band like these ever being made.

Headbanging just makes you look like a moron.

Musicians only started doing it to make the most of their perms, and it always looked stupid.

Slamming your head backwards and forwards really is hardcore

I saw some slight crab-moves but I'd more like to think of these bands as "Douche-core".

Wow, I would've happily listened to and accepted your opinion until I read "Emo assholes need to stop trying to be metal, because they're just bringing the whole genre down, and go back to cutting themselves so we dont have to". Elitist asshole. I'm all for laughing at something and having a laugh, but people like you need to get their heads out of their asses and chill the f*ck out. Don't like it? Don't listen to it. It's not like they're making you like it, there's this thing called opinion. & as for judging my music taste, I also listen to Necrophagist and the Backstreet Boys. Problem? Oh, and read the lyrics to both songs, they're not angry at all. Your opinion on their fashion wasn't even called for, most "metal" bands just look sweaty and need a haircut, doesn't stop me liking them. Gtfo of my thread.

i dont care about other bands, its just emo's that annoy me to no end. You like backstreet boys? congrats, i don't care, they're not trying to be metal, therefore they aren't affecting my genre of choice. I never said anything about their lyrics either, i said they "SOUND" angry, as in their vocals.

Never said I'm not I do like it. I also like melodic death metal, electro-pop and rap music. What difference does it make? I'd defend each of those genres just as much from an elitist. I can't stand elitists. As previously mentioned, I'm all for having a laugh with people like Kensai etc, but some people just take it too far

Most of the bands in your music section sound angry as well. What gives you the assumption that they have more of a reason to sound angry than these guys? because they don't have fringes or wear tight pants? Get real, I actually love pretty much every band in your music section, but your reasoning just doesn't get by me. You can't say these bands don't have metal influences, so they're allowed to try and sound metal. It's not like you see them playing with All That Remains and ruining your shows.

+Infinity.
It wasn't really Crab-core as such, and Crabbing was kept to he minimum needed to qualify.

this.

"Crabcore(More like Crapcore amirite) is a new age genre of post-hardcore music that is now in the mainstream thanks to Attack Attack!, it entails playing ****ty music by playing over 9000 breakdowns, screaming **** like a whiny pussy, wailing your guitar up and down like a kid on assburgers attempting to air guitar and crouching like a crab at the same time. The genre was pushed into the mainstream when the band decided their old version music video of "Stick Stickly" was not br00t4l enough to appeal to the metalhead fans which apparently the band thought they had many of them. The band decided it was time to throw away the conventional elements in many post-hardcore bands and decided to add auto-tune vocals, and crab crouching to the br00t4l breakdowns. After weeks of releasing the video on jewtube and the subtle jewtube comments of people saying they looked like crabs came a ****storm of last.fm trolls and jewtube viewers realizing that the band just came up with the greatest genre known to man.

Even though the most of this is bullsiht, it kinda tells what CRABcore is.

Way to go. I listen to Albeniz, Weather Report, Led Zeppelin, Megadeth, Nile and Atheist. Elitists really annoy me. I don't like generic Emo-core mostly because of the singing. And that guy was really a douche. They can have whatever influence they want. You don't have to listen to them...

their vocals aren't good is what i meant, they sound strained like they dont have the technique or age required to get a good sound out. Not exactly sure what a fringe is, unless your british and mean bangs, but no i have long hair too. Im not saying they dont have metal influence, just saying that they pretty much take the good influence and throw it out the window. And yes, i am thankful they dont ruin my shows

Fair enough tbh. I'm not keen on the whole "fry screaming" thing. Though I don't think Confide fry, just his power exhales aren't really powerful, which kinda eliminates the point of them. Still, I like both, aha. And I am indeed British, and a fringe is bangs or whatever, so yeah

I think bangs sounds ridiculous... As do many American English words (not all though, there are some good ones).
