I honestly can't categorize what I listen to into a group. But these bands that I listen to deserve to be heard because what they do requires skill. All these guys have have 4+ people in them. All of them doing something to make their band sound the way it is.
This is an Aussie band who has great music, but the lyrics are just dumb about dumb things. Buried In Verona: www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNdOjpOxo5s If you don't like the techno stuff, dw its pretty much only at the start
Can we please not get all uptight about old music is better than new music in now thread, jesus. who care what you call it, it much better than adding a thousand names onto hardcore because its gone through a thousand different iterations.
I listened to Carbomb and that was awesome, but it seems like the lyrics are just terrible and about nothing. Listening to them right now actually, if you could tell me one that has good lyrics it would be great.
In reply to TruSpartanLe, #13:Also I don't know if you'd like these guys: Alexisonfire www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioadFzq_6n0 They're Post-Hardcore band, or something, cause it has soft vocals in it as well. I like them, I like how the lead singer sounds. It is a good song.
Here is something that I listen to that is... similar? Maybe. Give them a listen:
Like I have said before, I know "Hardcore" started in the 70's and 80's with punk, but in a way all this new stuff is "Hardcore". I really hate labeling, but that is what it has come to in this modern age of music.
We label music based on what the music in the 60's, the 70's, the 80's and even the 90's. Lol, there are even radio stations that you listen to BASED on a certain time in our history where that type of music was prevalent.
Imagine what 2000 through to 2010 will be? Take a second, really... Rap and hip hop has dominated that decade. So imagine in 10 or 20 years what radio stations will be available.
I "label" I guess, the music as Hardcore. Because I feel it is by todays standards. I feel it does not fit in the normal genres like "metal", "Rock", "Deathmetal". I feel this has it's own place.
i'm just going off of what i remember hardcore as, fast punky riffs with a ton of fun and energy in the lyrics. Family values and stuff like that. I grew up in an area of new york where the majority of the bands we had at local shows were either hardcore bands, punk bands, or ska bands. So amongst all of the older kids who I hung out with I heard bands like H2O, bouncing souls, the mighty mighty bosstones, madball, bloodlet, bane, gorilla biscuits and so on and so forth. So I was brought up with the stuff that bands like H2O stand for or were influenced by, I'm a little old school in my taste i guess...
This music genre, in my opinion, is just noise. Sound just blends together in a way that just seems awful. I like metal and I like heavy music but this 'hardcore' doesn't quite have the same driving rhythm as those other styles.
So you voice a clearly biased and uneducated opinion on a genre you clearly have no real experience listening to other than what was posted here? You may want to work on the whole "voice my opinion" thing by trying to be a little knowledgeable of what you are giving your opinion on. It may prevent you from looking like a douche in future discussions.
I'm pretty new here, but here is some of what I call "hardcore". I know that it's kind of a slippery slope labeling bands by their sound because it's all somewhat subjective and based on other bands and opinions, but to me hardcore is more of just the band's attitude towards the music they make and play I guess? My apologies for also not having the linking system figured out yet.
To me, some of the original hardcore starts with SSD (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7dnLC3RAvA) obviously very punk influenced and such and not particularly "heavy". Some of the more contemporary hardcore bands that I listen to now are Ceremony (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHyLEojlU1s&feature=related) , Verse (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1y9iPtfdk4) , and Have Heart (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4TMvWmzp-M)
crazy fact o the day: I saw shai hulud and on broken wings on the same bill in a church hall meant to hold 200 people at the max with about 3-400 people and all of the gear and the bands in it. Best night of my life
In reply to Nopantz, #26: Wow. I bet that was fantastic, in the least. I love the melodic aspect of their music and how they tie it into their composition so well. But live hardcore shows are so much fun to go to when you know the music and the bands actually care about being there and playing for the fans.
I finally get to see Terror and Bane here in the next few months, so I am very excited about that, even though I don't think it will be as packed as 300 people.
i agree whole heartedly with that entire statement.
Oh man you're gonna love seeing Terror live! They are hands down one of my favorite bands and they really pour everything into the shows when they play live! Plus the crowd is always great with interacting with the band! And bane has to be one of the greatest bands in the history of hardcore. The live shows are amazing and they're so chill when you talk to them it makes going that much cooler!
