I rather enjoy The Contortionist, a lot. I also love Periphery and THA, Textures is pretty good too. So I'll be at this tour no matter what.

The Contortionist may be deathcore, but they actually have talent and write memorable songs. I just hate deathcore like Suicide Silence and Rose Funeral, where the breakdowns are the focus of the song.

Rose Funeral seem to have a bad habit of popping up on tours where they know they will be negatively recieved. They were the single blemish on the Decibel Monsters of Death Tour and the first leg of Nile's Those Whom the Gods Detest Tour. They were completely out of place.

This is very true and anybody who thinks otherwise is in denial. I enjoy some of their work, but yes, they are definitely deathcore.

I recall how at a Meshuggah show, I saw this one hxc kid trying to start a slam dance with other people, but they weren't getting into it. He got frustrated, and began taking it out on the people watching the band instead of moshing (including me), so I walked over and told him, quite bluntly "Son, if you do one more round of ballet near my head, I will fucking kick your ass on the spot, with the rest of the crowd helping me out. Nothing personal."

He stopped.

Wow Kommie, I didn't think I'd find anyone here who hates Deathcore more then I do.

AnataFan4Life said it best, I hate straight up Deathcore. Fuck I'm a drummer and I know dick about guitar, but in 15 minutes I can write a whole deathcore album on guitar because I can hit open note chords, close my left hand whenever I feel like it and can palm mute the guitar. All things anyone here can manage in 15 minutes time if not shorter because you ae not leaning chords or notes, it's just opening and closing your left hand.

But I digress, I like when a band can take the deathcore sound and make it better. Yes, the Contortionist has a lot of deathcore to their sound, but they are losing it with every album they release, which I appreciate because I know that they can write better material, and they are. Look at All Shall Perish. They are considered Deathcore as well, but they are so much more then that. Suicide Silence, all they can do is Deathcore, and it blows balls. At least The Contortionist are making a shitty genre on it's own something that is worth listening to.

I mean, hardcore dancing is called hardcore dancing for a reason. It's for hardcore. Fuck kids these days.


And I consider the Contortionist "progressive" deathcore. Exoplanet began moving away from the breakdown-y stuff, I'm confident their next album will continue that trend. Even if you don't like deathcore, listen to the first minute of "Contact"- it's really, really beautiful.


And I still like shitty deathcore, MPF

I'm not going to say that they don't fit with the line-up or that this tour won't help them get bigger. I'm just saying that I don't enjoy listening to the other bands.
