(also known as beatdown hardcore, brutal hardcore, toughguy, and moshcore)
Better to bray in front of a wall than to hit your head on it!!!
How it sounds
As if the guitarist wants to play Thrash Metal, the drummer Hardcore Punk, the bassist is just fast and the singer has an anger management problem!
Of course, they find them and everyone plays their own.
Basically like Hardcore Punk with Thrash Metal.
Why listen to it
Because it has nerve and rage and is the most suitable for bongo and moshpit.
And you generally get bored listening to a song for over 2 minutes.
Because you know more chords by making air guitar at home and sing better when you push yourself to the toilet or when you curse the referee on the court.
Where do we meet it
The USA and specifically in New York.
When did it start
The late 1980s and early 1990s
Who are the pioneers
Killing Time with their 1989 album “Brightside” laid the foundation stone for the genre.
Essentially, however, Crossover Thrash bands “dug” the ground to place it.
Sheer Terror, Madball, and Judge are also considered the pioneers of the genre.
You have to listen
Strife, Shai Hulud, Hatebreed, Varials, Terror, Merauder, Knuckledust.
Days of glory
The early ’90s, but always in an underground context, when albums worthy of the first Thrash Metal were released.
He can easily be given the title of the father of the much more glorious and commercial Metalcore.
The character’s underground did not allow many remarkable bands to evolve.
Essentially Metalcore was created to get bands out of this box and into a bit more commercial tracks.
What is it confused with
With Metalcore, Hardcore Punk, Crossover Thrash, Thrash Metal, Youth Crew.
How do you describe it to an irrelevant
Some crazy New Yorkers with shaved heads are playing what Metallica was playing.
Those who play “Nothing Else Matters”!!!
