nick_napalm you're the only person in this post who knows what time it is as far as the topic goes.. none of the other bands shouldn't even
be in this thread so i'm assuming youth is the culprit but that's cool it's an awesome time, discovering new music and bands but let us guide you
to a genre that i personally hold close to heart to this very day and i'm so old i was around when dirt was invented haha anyway.. the genre i want
to talk about at the moment is "screamo" it was at it's highest point in the early nineties but sadly didn't really last very long it managed to
hold on to about the mid nineties, there's still a few bands still doing it but they're not doing the genre justice at all. the genre was so
emotional, very passionate, filled with an energy that was unparalleled, these kids spilled their gut's out at every show they played, i mean wow i
bet these kids will never have to have therapy in their entire lives because every show, every song they literally spilled their guts out!! that's
the reason i loved the genre because it was real and delivered in a very emotional way.. anyway.. here are a few bands from the early days you need to
check out if you already haven't.
just to mention a few...

someone mentioned "deathcore" and i don't know why but it gets a lot of haters, i'm sure it's mainly because of death metal loyalists but i gotta
say i absolutely love the genre, another reason i'm guessing it gets hate is because it's a new'ish genre it's fairly new it started gaining
notoriety around 2003 or so, i'm an old dude and been there for most all the bands on the heavier end of the musical spectrum and i consider myself
open-minded enough to at least check out new bands and especially bands trying "new" things and that's key, being "open-minded" because lets face
it by now everything has been done so it's next to impossible for a band to be "original" but if you where around for the hardcore bands in the mid
to late nineties you'll know what a "breakdown" is, so, take that break down and add it to death metal and you have "deathcore", now i absolutely
love "the breakdown" and anyone who has attended a hardcore show with a band that integrates breakdowns into their music you'll know how fun is is
being in the crowd. i few bands i'd like to suggest in the deathcore realm are...
the acacia strain
the red shore
...i could go one but these are just a few of my favorites. i also enjoy "metalcore" it gets some hate as well but there's nothing much better than
the fusion of hardcore and metal, is there? this genre started around the mid to late nineties and is still going strong to this day, i won't bother
listing anymore bands tho but two bands i absolutely have to mention are "Turmoil" and "Disembodied", not only are they 2 of the
bands responsible for starting the genre but they're to this day the best bands who did it
man, i love music, i could talk about it and the bands forever.. hardcore, punk, metal from way back in the late 70's to this very day. music is the
worlds only true magic and if you're into any of these genres you'll never need to see a therapist or psychiatrist because it's sincerely the cure
for what ales you!! my heart is closest to the old bands but i absolutely love where the kids are taking heavy music these days, one thing tho as far
as punk goes.. bands doing it correctly are few and far between and that's my only regret.
having the music is one thing but there's absolutely nothing like seeing the bands you love, live. so do yourself a favor and make it a priority in
your life to get out there and enjoy your favorite bands live, you'll thank yourself later, believe me.
