Why does deathcore suck so much?

Despite the fact that I am no longer wasted (I sobered up about a half hour ago) and have never heard a single deathcore song ever, I think I have an answer by name alone.

This is a classic case of braggadocio: Trying to convince the world that you are of the highest caliber of an endeavor. But the problem is, the first album might be great, but there's no room for progression, or even trying to create something entirely new. Especailly since bands inside of a sub-sub genre have to conform to its rules, otherwise the meatheaded fans will leave your broke ass out in the cold.

That's why Symbolic & The Sound of Perseverance were the best Death albums. Yea, Scream Bloody Gore and Leprosy were brutal as hell, but Chuck had to progress in order to become the legend he is today. Become more of a singwriter instead of consistently dropping brick shaped scultures of balls on your head. Perhaps Symbolic and TSOP aren't the most brutal albums around, but they are indeed refined, and at the very least, heavy.

From real life, to myspace, to metal-archives....bands are calling themselves deathcore, AKA brutal death metal.

Really? Cause I'm a fan of that pussy death metal.

Because I'm stupid and I like dumb music, there actually is a difference between "brutal death metal" and "deathcore". :lol:

Brutal DM bands:

Cannibal Corpse
Skinless
Dying Fetus

Deathcore:
Job For A Cowboy
Bring Me The Horizon
As Blood Runs Black

I was with Death from day 1. Scream Bloody Gore is one of the best albums of all time and certainly Death's best overall. Other albums might have a better song or 2 but from start to finish, SBG is a masterpiece that paved the way for MANY bands and albums after it. The perfect combination of death metal, speed metal and technical prowess. Their later work was more technical but missing too much of the speed aspect for my archaic tastes.

The re-release of SBG with bonus tracks should be in every single person on this forums collection in my not so humble opinion. :horns:

I've been wanting to re-listen to the entire Death catalog so I can give the albums a proper ranking. I'm pretty sure Symbolic is #1 and Scream Bloody Gore is #2 though.

i would flip flop those two. Scream Bloody Gore i think is the best and Symbolic is a close second.

That's how I would rank them also especially if you have the SBG remastered with bonus tracks. Sick shit!

Spiritual Healing has some great songs but would be a distant 3rd for me I think then Leprosy
