    Metalcore: BLAST BEATS, BLAST BEATS, BLAST BEATS, BLAST BEATS, BLAST BEATS, BLAST BEATS.

    With those blast beats comes repetitive chord progressions, pathetically fake deep lyrical expression, with virtually boring vocals almost all the time, and with all of that, add a bit of non-existent bass lines to add to a stereotype some people have about bass and rock music.

    There's good....mathcore, like The Dillinger Escape Plan, but at the same time, I'd rather take Arsis, Sigh, or Genghis Tron over virtually any metalcore.

    Mastodon's godly, by the way. ;) Anybody who makes a conceptual album about freakin Moby Dick is awesome in my book. :P

    Oh, and you know what I hate? People's DEFINITION of screamo. Seriously, screamo is an incredibly small genre that has loads of instrumentals and a lot of progression, but people see it as the same as metalcore. When it ISN'T.

    Honestly, go listen to City of Caterpillar, Envy, and Daitro, and you'll see what genuine screamo, and all of its instrumental beauty, has over metalcore's BLAST BEATS. Screamo is NOT metalcore, and I hate it when people think screamo is anything with just screaming in it. Really aggrivating stuff.

    Of course I mention screamo in a metal thread because screamo has SOME, but not a lot, of metal tendencies. It's more punkish, if anything, and I just felt like pointing that out.

    I'm more of an experimental punk kind of person anyways. :P

    I dont listen to much metal, maybe start a playlist/stream once in a while so I dont have any favorite bands. Finntroll and Animosity(if you count that as metal) are the only ones I listen to separately. I dont count Metallica, Slayer and SOTD though. Everyone listens to them.
