It is. But it attracts stupidity so we don't allow it in here.

I don't think it requires any further elaboration.

The earliest metalcore bands produced all the energy and vibes of hardcore, then added in a few metal influences. Such bands include City Of Catipillars.

It's evolved so much, there's so hardcore sound in it apart from some of the pioneers that are still going, such as Converge, but even they have evolved a shit load.

The original original was more hardcore, and the morden stuff doesn't fit into morden metal at all. Keep on the boards and try out new bands and you'll see why in time.
This thread should be deleted, mate.

Hit this once or twice, and you'll be twice as nice.
