So this is a familiar topic when it comes to the heavier side of music, better known as Metal.

I couldn't care less about the label genre a band is assigned by people, but it seems to be a ever lengthy argument about if a band is Metalcore, Metal, or a subgenre of Metal.

So far from what i understand:

The difference between Metal and Metalcore, especially as people on the front page make it out to be, Metalcore includes clean singing along with screaming, thats pretty much it, there seems to be no other note worthy difference, but of course, as i would like to know, whats your take on it?

For those who are unfamiliar with Metalcore or Metal

Metal, e.g.

Metallica
Slayer
Led Zepplin
Black Sabbath
Anthrax

Metalcore, e.g.

Bullet For My Valentine
The Devil Wears Prada
Trivium
Underoath
Killswitch Engage (Which i disagree with)
As I Lay Dying (Which i disagree with)

If you really "couldn't care less", you wouldn't have made this thread.

So, why do you care?

Metalcore is romantic or sexual attraction or behavior between members of the same sex or gender.

Because im interested in what other people think?

Its alright to be a little open minded isnt it?

mainstream metalcore is an outdated trend and totally irrelevent i think

but I would say, the old formula of pedal point melodic minor scale riffs, one or two breakdowns, often paired with clean vocals that sound a bit "whiny", with lyrics like "i've fallen and can't get back up" (speaking of outdated and totally irrelevent...)

Shit beards, massive plugs, neck tattoos.

I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.
