I'm going to have to go with As I Lay Dying on this one. Generic, yes, but I can't help but enjoy a lot of their music.

The drummer is rather intense, too, so maybe that's part of the reason.

Anyway, yes, do tell your opinions.

Please delete this thread and search; there are already many, many AILD threads.

Oh man. We have another "z0mG only joe blow and the squirrel intestines from Bumblefuck Nebraska are TROO hardcore, yo".

For all practical purposes, they are hardcore, metalcore, whatever you want to classify it as.

I got the impression from your post that it was an AILD thread, despite the conflicting thread title. Apologies.

And, to answer your question, I like Throwdown for whatever reason.

Its hard to say what is "generic" metalcore. Some bands being listed were at the start of the scene (I think). Can they help that bands will imitate their sound? Since everyone rips off KSE's sound that makes them generic? I don't care what anyone says AOJB revolutioned metal music. Its apparent because of all imitators out there. My guess at a "generic" metal band would be Hope Dies Last. But even they are unique in some ways.

They led me into "real" hardcore, so I can't hate.

Elysia is NOT generic at all. As Blood Runs Black on the other hand, is bloody terrible.

Most people are mentioning Metalcore/Death Metal bands so my guess is that we are lumping all Core's together. No flaming for you
