I don't think hardcore purists will ever accept this subgenre. It sounds way too emo.

I don't really understand how adding a synth keyboard makes a band "emo".

Best of the genre are HORSE the band, Arsonists Get All The Girls and Sky Eats Airplane. Don't care much for Enter Shikari.

Me either.

There's one song I like by them though. I think it's called "Mothership" or something like that. Other than that, they are teh suck.

enter shikari shikari brought a techno feel to the hardcore scene and they put on a sick show! you should see them LIVE or watch some videos one their myspace!

Atari Teenage Riot were mixing Punk & Metal with Techno in 1993, Enter Shitkari are just doing it badly and using cheesy rave synths, it's not exactly difficult to put out of place sounding keys all over a track. It takes talent to do it well though.
#11
i think they have a unique sound. but i haven't listened to this other band. are they better?
#12
ATR pwn. Ffs, they invented digital hardcore- it's hardly a new fusion.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

I think just about every electronic hardcore band is better then Enter Shikari.

^add to that:
Genghis Tron
Arsonists Get All The Girls
An Albatross
The Berserker
Atari Teenage Riot
Horse The Band

I think that's quite a good basic list.

I really cbf with it.
As a genre I'm not interested.
But some of the bands are good.

Although synth players live crack me up.

*Hammer keys in what appears to be a pattern, shake synth around a bit, run back and forth across the stage, mount a curtain on the side of stage and climb to the top, then make it fall down and tear down half the front of the stage.*


*Get banned from venue*

What about Test Icicles, they were pretty good at it. Kinda cheesy, but I liked 'em.

Oh and Enter Shikari is bad, and not like bad bad but bad bad.
#21
Enter Shikari are pretty boring on CD but I'd go see them live again. They put on a good show.

There are, as has been said, bands that do it better.
#22
Bomb 20, Schizoid, EC8OR, Dataclast, The Shizit (although, more numetal mixed with DHC).

^ Didn't really find them to be hardcore at ...alll?


Yeah, not so much for the Hardcore part, I was talking about moreso the synths and electric influence, but man, do they get my butt shaking.

how is HORSE the band "scene"?
Have you seen any of the actual guys in the band?
They are about as far from that stereotype as humanly possible.
