ok ive seen the best/worst threads, the generic threads, now i want to know who are the most creative bands. either post bands, singers, guitarist, drummers anything that makes hardcore creative and interesting.

my choice for creativity is probably All That Remains or Darkest Hour.

GO!!
I'm way better than you.

Well... since this'd be hardcore... eh... All that remains.

But overall: Opeth kicks the **** out of every other band in history.

I would have to say Becoming the Archetype, August Burns Red, Thrice, Every Time I Die, and He Is Legend. All of those bands never cease to amaze me.

Sure those bands are good, but I don't see how they're any different from the rest.

To me, alot of grind bands sounded origonal, but then everyone started doing it. So I'm not sure really...

Maybe The Number 12 for mixing alot of different styles

They're not talking about hardcore punk, they're talking about "hardcore." It has little in common with its roots in the '80s.

Seatia, for being able to define a genre incorporating a lot of the elements of core music that we now take for granted, even in the 90's.

Thrice, for obvious reasons.

Genghis Tron, for being able to innovate in a time where the vast majority of core's bands sounds uncannily the same.

Anatomy of a Ghost - For taking the really really good elements of the softer side of "core music, like decently whiny/pretentious vocals and somewhat lo-fi recording and turning it into something i actually want to hear.

The Bled - I'm not sure that i find them to be of the utmost creative bands, but PTF's sounds was very unique, and definitely makes me want to listen to it. That album just seems solid on so many levels musically, lyrically, etc.

The Blood Brothers - Definitely taking the remaining carcass of "emo-violence" and true "screamo" and turning them into something different. Burn Piano Island Burn will prevail the test of time.

The Rise/The Bronx - For putting a definite Rock and Roll spin on the current core scene.

Funeral for a Friend - I never even really got into them, but I know that they were definitely at the forefront of the now overly generic sing/scream/sing set-up of songs.

Life in Pictures - For being so goddamn badass

Rage Against the Machine---what can i say that hasn't been said already??
A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music. Put this in your sig if you are one of the 8% who stayed with real music.

Alice Cooper 07/05
Guns' N' Roses' 11/06
Motley Crue 12/06
SLAYER 02/07

RATM aren't hardcore. ^

They were a great band but not hardcore.


As for the thread (great idea by the way)


Between the Buried and Me - I really like them because they're not pertentious and they're not afraid to break away from what most metalcore bands do. A lot of their influences aren't from Metal either which shows. The Anataomy Of... is a great example of this.

Protest the Hero - Again with the influences in their musc, PTH don't try to immitate 80's thrash bands only with ****ty cookie vocals, they seem to have a lot more to say musically and lyrics wise.

The Fall of Troy - No one in hardcore can play like this. Well maybe not but very few can do it this well.

Right, because you know how no other band sounds like All that Remains.. with the whole clean vocal chorus and whatnot.


Anyways... these are already mentioned but I might as well:

At the Drive-In
Dillinger Escape Plan
Between the Buried and Me
Protest the Hero (although I don't really like the vocals)

Fall of Troy.

The Chariot? I can't stand 'em, but they're somewhat...creative/unique in their own crappy way.

They only did the clean chorus bit on Fall of Ideals. Most of the tracks on TDH don't have that formula. Aside from that, they're very talented and unique.

One of my friends claims he was playing a solo on the open strings while using the other strings for a fretted solo. I don't know how much truth there is to it, as it sounds odd, but it's possible I guess.

i would have put tfot, but i hold too much contempt for them, obviously they stole what music i would soon write, had they not already written it, or more pertinently, stolen it from my mind, before i had the chance.
