So who had the biggest influence on you in a core genre? For me I would have to say Andy Williams from ETID cool dude writes the most killer riffs. And Paul Waggoneer makes me want to quit guitar b/c he's so goddamn good. So share your influences.

Just to throw this in while talking influences my dad plays drums so I played drums from a young age then when I was 9 close to 10 I my cousin showed me some Metallica and I thought James Hetfield was the most badass person alive so I started playing guitar.
AK-47. The very best there is. When you absolutely, positively got to kill every motherfucker in the room, accept no substitutes.

Paul Waggoner definitely. I know the guy in real life through some mutual friends (we are from the same town), and I remember seeing him in some local shows before his rise to fame, and even then he was amazing.

It was the only task I would undertake...

I have a mancrush on Kurt Ballou.

I thought the whole idea of post-hardcore was to mix techno and hardcore.....

Luke's and Tim's guitar work pretty much motivated me to progress as a guitarist. I think it was maybe a few years ago when I was still lurking Spoon mentioned pth putting up sequoia throne and I was just blown away. I had never heard something so technical yet catchy. They lead me to btbam too, which is just a whole other story.

So basically, thanks to spoon, I'm now somewhat proficient at guitar

It's hard to argue with that...

I'm still going to say that Kurt Ballou makes me want to make more complex songs.

Normally I would agree with Ian Mackaye.


But I think for me it's John Joseph of Cro-Mag fame, I knew he was an interesting guy, but about a month back I ran into him at a diner around here and he invited me and some friends to sit and chat.

Dude has the best outlook on everything in life, from diet, to positivity to just living a fulfilling life. He's almost 50 (47 to be exact) and not only is he still playing with the Cro-Mags on and off, he also has Bloodclot, runs marathons, and is in the process of writing books.

He has also put his feud with Harley behind him, but I don't really want to post about it on the internet.

Not doing this to namedrop, just saying.

Bill Steer.

but this is me exploiting the fact that it says 'in a core genre". Doubt this thread was made with grindcore in mind

kurt has to be one of my biggest influences guitar wise, as cliche as it seems. also bands like on the might of princes and lots of screamo artists like majority rule and pg.99's guitar players are very influential.

First of all, I enjoy deathcore for it's complexity and it's the only genre heavy enough for me

Luke Hoskin. I listen to a ton of core music, including BTBAM and THA, which do motivate me, but Luke Hoskin has been the single most direct influence.
#19
definitely JB Brubaker from August Burns Red. Then Timmy McTague and James Smith from UnderOath. But JB is definitely my biggest.

Jona Akerfeldsen, IKTPQ's old lead guitarist/ clean vocalist, hes seriously my idol

Crime in Stereo and the Carrier in terms of molding hardcore guitar riffs. The way they use melody is just too awesome.

I understand that this is a musician's message board and stuff, but I'm really surprised at how many people are simply mentioning bands who's music they enjoy rather than a band they've learned something from in terms of views or life choices.

isnt being able to learn something from a band in terms of views, etc. something that molds one to favour a band and have a preference towards that band?

Just by chance, did you see them at the Brewery this summer with Dillinger?


No! I wanted to go so bad but I wasn't able to get a ride :|

Its looking like I won't get the chance to see them live ever now.

I don't really see how you're in any position to measure the impact any given band has had on the lives of the people who have posted in this thread.
