I can tell a hardcore band from listening...
but i never hear a true definition.
what are aspect or techniques used....
please don't say breakdown or double bass
#2
Double bass isn't hardcore.

As far as I know, it's punk guitar with proficient drumming.
Demolition hands.... Got 'em!

keep thinking that and you will be stoned at a concert in a moshpit and i will watch you die

How the hell can you bash him for answering your question?
Your the one who doesn't know what hardcore is, who the hell are you to question someone else?

#10
i think you meant metalcore.

hardcore is hardcore punk and what defines a band to be hardcore is the music they play and nothing more
#11
lol, when he said double bass i was thinking double bass like an upright bass. like the living ends bass player plays.

and i was like, wtf! hardocre band with a double bass player. then i relised it was like double kick drum. lol

Hardcore = Americanized Punk.


And by "Americanized" I mean, bigger, faster, noisier, and more violent.

essentially, punk rock guitar, but using power chords in place of barre chords, usually with levels of distortion more common in heavy metal up until that point. songs tended to be a lot shorter and lacking in solos than most early punk rock songs, and instead of singing vocals were usually shouted.

the same sorts of lyrical themes were used, as well as what was essentially punk drumming, but faster.


uk hardcore (uk82) basically took the rock n roll influenced guitar of bands like the sex pistols and the clash, and sped it up and put distortion on it. shouted vocals as well...it was the uk82 band discharge that started dbeat as well.

that's the best way i can put it.

Ohh yeah, because there weren't bands in Europe who were also progressing into that stage, my bad

Punk, faster, more aggressive = hardcore. Simple as that.

Nah they did.


They just didn't do it like America did. Name a European band and I'll name a better American counterpart.

Discharge doesn't count, cause I already admitted they r00l.

Amebix...they're better than Discharge


Amebix doesn't really count.

Proto-thrash != Hardcore.

That's purely opinion, so that's a retarded statement.

I'm not arguing that European hardcore is better than American, I'm saying it's stupid to give a name to something to which happened across the world. It's like calling industrial developments Japanese industrial develop just because they did it better than anyone else.

Read my posts again, but it really seems like you didn't.


I was poking fun at American culture, not establishing a serious stance.
