It's fucking awesome, I love it, but how do you then make a distinction between brutal death and deathcore? Other than the fact that one is pretty shitty?
I just want to open up a discussion about genre differences, I like to be clear about what I'm talking about.
Personally I differentiate through the bands' sound. Brutal death has more bass, less emphasis on breakdowns, and sometimes the burped vocals. Deathcore, is well, deathcore.
It's hard to explain through words, it's just something you pick up by listening to more of it.
