So who else here indulges in the delicious complexity, unpredictability, dichotomy and unprecedented musicianship of Mathcore? And what are your favourite bands who play this sort of style?
You said you'll never be younger than you are tonight.
Now I've never felt weaker in all of my life.
You said it's only a one off, only a line.
But, now it's a circle all of the time.

I love this genre. The chaotic side and the complexity of the songs make me really enjoy that style.

My favorite bands are Botch, Achilles, The Armed, The Chariot, Crydebris, Narrows.
Bands like Number Twelve Looks Like You or Curlp and die are more noisy and I don't really like when Mathcore is mixed with Grindcore.

There are some really great bands in France like Comity, Plebeian Grandstand, The Rodeo Idiot Engine.

I've actually seen people say that before in magazines and junk. I don't listen to grindcore so I didn't know how accurate it was....

I like your taste. I strongly advise that you check out, 'The Arusha Accord' They are my new favourite band atm, along with Architects haha.

I like Psyopus a lot, but only when they aren't being immature: I love Chris Arp's playing style and general sound. DEP aren't bad, and The End are pretty good. If you don't know them, check out Car Bomb, as they're a good lil' fusion of tech metal and mathcore: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIIeg3JJuW8

****, I love Psyopus, Chris Arp has set the bar for insane guitar playing to an all time high. He' a bit of a ****ing bawwss, just saying.

Btw, I just uploaded a 'Mathcore' song I wrote to my profile, you guys should totally check it out! haha oh and while you're at it, the second part to my guitar lesson? Fans of Psyopus, DEP and Architects, should find it helpful...Haha.

If that sounded somewhat ignorant, I am sorry, but I simply didn't enjoy calculating infinity as much as others claim to: they're good, but I can't get really into them. If they have a better album out, let me know, as I haven't listened to other work by them yet, and it might just be that album I'm not a huge fan of.

I think it's less what your personal thoughts are on it, and more how you wrote off a landmark band of the genre, who have inspired countless others in their own way, as "not bad."

Like, you don't listen to mathcore without giving Dillinger a lot of plays.

OT: It doesn't get any better than The Number 12 Looks Like You.

Because they're fucking awesome.

Well, I was saying it from a subjective point of view, rather than an objective one. I consider them "not bad," because that is my subjective opinion. I'm aware they're good objectively, but I don't enjoy them as much as others. I'll give them another go: which would you say is their best album?

EDIT: (below) Thanks man; I'll have a look.

Ire Works is a little "eh" for a DEP album, but I'd recommend watching live videos of Calculating Infinity songs since the album itself didn't do much for you, or the one Aliens Exist mentioned.

it's not hard to overlook DEP.

Oh, but I suppose I'm biased because I don't really like this subgenre. I find it odd how a fan of the subgenre wouldn't like them : /

Not butthurt, just annoyed.

And he was laughing more at you, less at what you said.

Quote by MustangMan311
Miss Machine and Ire Works are the best after Calculating Infinity. Option Paralysis is alright, a little underwhelming.


You liked Ire Works?

I started with that for some reason, and once I got into their older stuff it never seemed to measure up.

Milk Lizard's cool though.

I recently listened to We Are the Romans and The Always Open Mouth for the first time since my freshman year of high school. I quickly remembered why I used to love this genre so much.

As much as I love all of DEP's stuff, for me nothing measures up to Calculating Infinity. The newer albums just don't seem to capture that "computers going haywire" feel, if that makes any sense.

This album is so perfect.
They really had the hardcore thing mixed with complexity without making "overtechnical-crazy" things.

I really like how We Came as Romans channel that energy into their songs, then used their band name as an homage.

One of the best bands in the recent hardcore scene, IMO.
