Honestly, though, I almost consider Acacia Strain a beatdown-hardcore band. They're very different than the other bands in the deathcore genre.
They definitely have a good amount of beatdown influence, but they're still a deathcore band. If you like beatdown though, you should listen to Irate. They're the best band I've heard in the genre.
