I was wondering what scales hardcore bands generally use when they are writing music. For instance, i know pop punk bands use a mostly major scales in their music. Anything someone has would be great.

Definitely minor scales over majors, flatted 6ths, flatted fifths. Also, there's an interval called a tritone, which is 3 whole tones or six frets that sounds "heavy." You will also want to tune your guitar down. At least tune your low E down to D and then maybe from there, tune all strings down another 1/2 step or whole step, or 1 1/12 steps, which would make your low string C#/Db, C, or B. Have fun.

Tritone is a flatted fifth.

No. A tritone is an interval spanning three whole tones. This is equal to an augmented fourth. A diminished fifth, while being enharmonically equivalent to a tritone, is slightly different (not in pitch but in function).

well the type of hardcore ill be playing is similiar to taht of like A day to remember and funeral for a friend, silversten, stuff like that. Thanks for the info, i was thinking probably major over minor, but i was not sure.. THank again!

A tritone is either a #4 or a b5, depending on the situation.
