Melodic lead parts, often has breakdowns, has screaming often with clean vocals aswell.

Just listen to metalcore bands, it's hard to put into words, but it's quite a distinctive sound.

Leniency? In the metal forum? This is unheard of. People get massacred here for just walking by.

Metalcore/Deathcore
Metalcore is hardcore punk with a larger thrash and european metal influence. The music is fast, but not in the same vein as its hardcore predecessor. It utilizes alot of double bass drumming with some blast beats, various chord progressions and tremolo picking, and vocals usually are usually "harsh", ranging from high screams to low growls. The songs are usually in verse-chorus-verse format with a breakdown placed somewhere in the song. The genre has become very popular and the range of sounds is very wide. Their are basically 3 branches of the genre. Standard metalcore, metalcore with a little more technicality and metallic edge, then its newest spawn called "deathcore" which is metalcore with a very large influence from death metal and thrash.
