    I wanted to make this thread out of curioisty, by hearing many of your opinions on the deathcore genre.

    Before we get started I wanted to introduce a bit of my brief musical history. I got into metal as a young kid, I didn't start right away on the modern metal bands, but I started out listening to old school heavy metal, including Black Metal. Later on throughout middle school, I found modern sub genres of metal that I really started to enjoy listening to, that was how I found out about the metalcore and deathcore sub genres of metal.

    I am still strongly more of a melodic death metal, metalcore, deathcore fan nowadays. As deathcore has become controversial in the past, I have been interested in hearing both sides of the listeners and traditional metalheads alike. I am still intrigued by the fans and subculture of the deathcore genre.

    I, good sir rather prefer Brahms or Handel. But my preferences might seem too plebeian to those of the more patrician sensibilities but then again one must acknowledge that Mozart was a peasant

    Hi @Sutekh I was totally puzzled by your references so had to do a bit of googling. Sorry not my taste at all.
    What does interest me is the 'genealogy' of music. Who inspired them and what inspired those people. How did this evolve?

    If you have any knowledge or opinions I would like to read them.

    From my understanding some of the aspects of deathcore evolved a bit from Death Metal their were certain death metal bands that kindve influenced the genre by creating the breakdowns that you would here in most deathcore music.

    Their is even a debate video hosted by Samuel Dunn that can back up this evidence-

    So far the video is great on the history of deathcore, including a bit on the subculture or scene of it.

    My only gripe that I have is when they chose to leave out The Acacia Strain in which I personally would consider them to be a deathcore band. In my own personal opinion as a fan of this genre, I would say some of the styles of deathcore can be slow paced and emotional. While I can't say much on Death Metal, if you brought me a Cannibal Corpse album I would have trouble leaning with the emotional side of their style of music, just because their fast paced.

    But if you brought me an album from the Acacia Strain I would emotionally get attached to the music just because their style is very slow.

    But not all Deathcore bands aren't necessarily slow paced, for example if you got me a Suicide Silence album their would be a big difference between the styles of music even though both bands are in the same genre category.

    I forgot to mention another opinion that I have on this video that I posted, while those two individuals may have a different stance on the genre criteria of deathcore. I would personally say that while you may have a screaming vocal style and your message is about handling anxiety and depression than that wouldn't fall under deathcore.

    What would fall under deathcore in my opinion is if your message through the music is about misanthropy, death, nihilism, misogyny, and Satanism.

    (note) (As this video may cover the thread on Deathcore including its subculture, I am still open to hearing other peoples stances on the genre itself.)
