Metalcore and Other Forms of False Metal

I've never really been vocal about my disdain for metalcore and other forms of false metal until now, having had some time to reflect on my trip to Mayhem fest. The reason is because when I was in high school and younger, I listened to some gay ass music. Although I had thrash pretty much locked down, I was a Death Metal noob and the same goes for Black, Grind, Doom, etc. One minute I'd be listening to Morbid Angel, then I'd be at a party playing Alive or Just Breathing by Killswitch. Eventually I went to college and learned more about metal in one afternoon than I knew in my entire life previous to that day. So the Metalcore and Cock Rock was sort of a stepping stone.

Now, I don't want to be a dick, but I have to wonder in the age of instant gratification technology how the fuck can anybody in their right fucking mind pick up this bullshit metalcore scene shit and like it? It takes literally 5 minutes to find a musically superior band than the one you like that has a funny ironic name, and it wont be gimmick laden talentless shit either! Again, I understand that music tastes are subjective, and you can flame away for saying "musically superior" but I can't help it when I see a band like FFDP or hear people talk about how sicknasty Blowjob For a Cockboy is. There's way too much good shit coming out now to be wasting time on that bullshit.

And that's not getting into the classics.

It boils down to this:
Chosing metalcore or other forms of false metal is like chosing to jerk off instead of getting laid.

And you have to remember Ozzy really fostered metalcore by having those bands like Unearth, Bleeding Through, and All That Remains on Ozzfest countless numbers of times.

^This is a great point. How many times have we seen well established metal figures or great bands bring flashpan bullshit on tour?

All metal is real metal. Its just opinion on if you like it or not. Thatís what this site lacks people who donít have respect for the musical opinions of others. Everyone here listens to metal bands I donít like but I donít care if they like it. If screaming and growling,metalcore ect appeals to you then listen to it if it doesnít then stay away. Its music you all take it way to seriously there are many more important things in life. There is a whole world of knowledge waiting start learning.

Did it ever occur to OP that some people really like metalcore better than whatever you believe the logical next step is? I don't, but why should people have to "graduate" to something they have no interest in. I went to high school with the metalcore/deathcore band Miss May I, and I can honestly say that maybe 5% of the kids who go to their shows own an Iron Maiden or Death or even At the Gates record. Metal's branched off so much that there's no requirement to be interested in all of it if one corner of it is fulfilling enough for you. Perhaps these kids should be asking you why you don't like metalcore since it finally brought clean vocals and breakdowns and accessibility to melodic death metal?

I like some metalcore. Not all of it, but bands like Shadows Fall, All That Remains, some KsE, Unearth, Darkest Hour, As I Lay Dying, and The Autumn Offering. If I'm "not metal" for liking those bands, then so be it. I still listen to everything from progressive power metal to technical death metal to melodic death doom....Its all based on preference, and shunning any person because they don't like your "kind of metal" is pretty lame.

I personally belive that grindcore is not music. But I dont give a fuck if you listen to it. By this definition of what music is grindcore is not music.
