Lately I've gotten into metalcore, through Killswitch Engage. Since then, I've gotten into As I Lay Dying, BFMV, and Lamb of God (not quite metalcore but close enough). Someone in the bass forum recommended me Between the Buried and Me, and I dig them. I've listened to Unearth and I think I'll end up buying one of their albums soon.

Could anyone recommend any more metalcore for me to check out?

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

start with more poppy music with occasional screams and then work your way into emoish crap like a day to remember and so on.

No.

Listen to frd_marshll.

Botch - We Are the Romans and Converge - Jane Doe are basically essential for metalcore.

First of all, I enjoy deathcore for it's complexity and it's the only genre heavy enough for me

I want an amp good for playing hippie tunes. I want it to be an actual amp, not a tube amp.

Well I guess if all he'd want to get into is generic metalcore, but he at least needs to listen to some of the great defining albums.
#14
abr is a very talented band, and they arent really that generic at all, they are just straight up metalcore with intense breakdowns.

i've seen this countless times, losers wanting more bland metalcore and losers stating two highly overrated good bands. botch and converge aren't the answers to all things metalcore, infact, there not the answer to metalcore at all.
#22
****s me, i dont really care tbh, but maybe the answer is a bunch a of bands that have influenced all the generic metalcore bands, so they can see what angle the bands are coming from. that for sure isn't converge or botch, maybe a few thrash bands, some at the gates or melodic death metal, and some integrity.
#23
So I think you're saying Converge is overrated because a bunch of **** generic metalcore bands aren't influenced by them. They guy asked for good metalcore. We gave him the best there is in Converge and Botch. I don't see what's wrong with that.
#24
no im saying why offer him bands, that won't appeal to him. somone asks to here a folk record and you play moonwalker by micheal jackson. sheesh, what the **** is wrong with this forum.

Tell me Norma Jean's "O God The Aftermath" wasn't completely influenced by We Are the Romans. Hell, they even had the same producer do it.

tbh it's not as bad is I might have made it out to be, it just sounds EXTREMELY similar to We Are the Romans.

I was very impressed after listening through a few times, after expecting GP all over again. It definately goes back more to the HD! sound, and Keith Buckley's vocals are ace.

We gave him recs for what he asked for. Sorry if it doesnt suit you, but theres a good chance he'll enjoy one of those bands. And kudos for analogies that have no relevance

Why are you trying to start a pointless arguement in every thread? That time of the month?


Use and enjoy.

No, it really is that bad.
They even said that they wanted that sound, if I'm not mistaken? (someone correct me if I'm wrong)

But I still fail to see the problem?

Idk whether or not they said it, but the problem is that instead of playing the same lame christian metalcore stuff, they decide to be "original" by playing riffs that sound straight out of WATR instead of trying to experiment a little bit.

They don't literally recreate Botch's album.

Don't get me wrong, I love We are the Romans 10 to 1 over any Norma Jean, but all I'm saying is that basically "if you've got something good, run with it."

I know in this case, Norma didn't have anything good, Botch did, but to emulate that is sure to be successful.

Either way, in my personal opinion, Norma pull off their Botch tribute well, whether it's a tribute or not. It does Botch some inkling of justice.

Songs off O God such as Disconnecktie and Bayonetwork are wicked.

Oh, oh and I've got a funny story from the other night that involves Norma Jean.

I was walking through this dicey suburb in Melbourne, and these 3 guys came out of nowhere and started hurling abuse at me, but because I had my iPod in, I didn't hear them, so they figured I was just trying to ignore them. So they decided to physically attract my attention haha. That involved a king hit to the temple from behind.. I wasn't too fond of that and I fell straight on my face haha. Then, I tried to get up and copped another punch to the head and I was knocked out I think.

Anyway, I was listening to Bless the Martyr at the time, I forget which song, and as I fell my headphones came out of my ears, but as I lay there knocked out or winded and bewildered, the only thing I can remember from when I fell to about 15 minutes afterwards, when someone finally turned up, is I can remember hearing that loud as snare that they seem to use in that album hahaha. I couldn't do anything about it, but I just wanted to shut that bloody snare up haha.


Yeah, that's my story.
They didn't even take anything ?
Oh well haha.

And I didn't even get a punch in!

2. And its Bodom not Bodem.

@Gymmeh: Disconnecktie and Bayonetwork are the reason why I said it's not that bad haha. Good story, too. I think the fact you were listening to Norma Jean is why they didn't take your Ipod! haha
