If you want to get less badass (which probably shouldn't be the case), in exchange for more melody and sappiness, you could try chiodos.

mk I volunteer to start a general rec thread if it can be approved by the mods. It would start somethin like this. I would add links, genre definitions, details, subgenres, more genres, more bands, etc later. This is just something I threw together off the top of my head.

So after 500 threads asking for "bands that sound like such and such," I've taken the liberty to make one of these up. Of course, I'm not a genre expert, so feel free to complain, criticize, or contribute. This is just a bare bones way to start, there will be subgenres added to each, etc. If anyone feels they can write a section (definitions, subgenres, band lists) better than I have (as I'm sure you will), PM me and I'll add it in, with full credit to you. Just band lists for now, more to come

Protest isn't Mathcore, they are metalcore. TFOT would probably fit better under post-hardcore. Plus, I think that there should be waaayyy more bands in the metalcore section that aren't... well... ****ty (omg opinions!).

EDIT: Add Million Dead and At The Drive-In to post hardcore.

ok.
Do you guys think it would be worth posting as a new thread?
Should I PM a mod with a sticky request?

I figured you were just putting them there because they were more popular and would help people with some confusion. Either way, I think they do need to be there, but I don't want people getting the idea that all those bands are what metalcore should sound like.

EDIT: PM him for right now but don't start the thread yet. I think this should be thoroughly discussed before any action is taken. Especially since we really aren't in a position to make decisions for the forum without mod approval.

I would recommend making it a bit more elaborate then your post here before starting a new thread, then really get it up to snuff before asking for a sticky.

Well I PMed the mods, and of course I'd refine it and perfect it before actually posting it. I just wanted verification that it would be stickied before I make the effort.

Yeah, this is probably what we should get done first. Also, Sadist or STABxYOU if your reading this, write up a Power Violence and Crust Punk section please.

we're trying to write up a rec thread, and we need a pv section for it. So I was wondering if you could write a pv and/or crust punk section for it.

what?

I'm makin a rec thread. If you could, write up a PV definition/genre outine, and a list of bands, organized as you see fit. PM it to me, and I'll stick it in the thread with full credit to you.
#32
Quote by SadistNation
have one already. it's on the 1st page now

ok. If my plans work out and I consolidate the rec threads into one, would you mind if I take from that thread?
#33
go ahead. that list is huge list of just pv and crust, if you acutally want a rec list that's like smaller and rec worthy let me know.

That would be great. The thread's got a pretty huge list, so something with the most accessible/best starting points, etc. I'll link to the actual thread in the section too.

Actually, I think it would be better if we had a smaller list with bands that could give a good overview of the genre with like a short description of the genre itself.

is that too big?
#38
That's about the right size. You could fit in a few more bands even. And a short definition and overview of the genre would be great too. And I'll include Toxic Narcotic and No Comment cuz I love em.
#39
yeah, a short description would be great. Which leads me to say we also need some short descriptions for the other genres as well saxaxe. If any regs reading this want to contribute please do so.
