Top 10 Reasons Why Deathcore Is Terrible

The Top Ten
1 The lyrics

They may not be anything special, but most Deathcore lyrics aren't nearly as bad/ offensive as brutal death metal. Besides, lyrics aren't exactly important in a lot of extreme metal anyway, and lots of Deathcore bands write fantastic lyrics too.

Now, the lyrical themes (if you could call them that) for Deathcore would be things along the lines of: Encouraging someone to kill themselves or saying that "everyone is sick of you" in which, is some of the most uninspiring "themes" I have heard.

Well, it's not for everyone, but yeah, the lyrics are very hit and miss in deathcore.

2 The vocals

The vocals are what ruin it for me. It would've been listenable if the vocals didn't sound like some guy screaming like lunatic or making bear noises.

... But the vocals are usually the one thing that Deathcore haters agree is OK- here usually more varied than straight up death metal anyway

The vocals are HIGHLY modified in most cases when compared to death metal

Some wannabe tough guy screaming at the top of his lungs.

3 The fans

Though there are some metalheads that do like these, Deathcore (or Screamo, whatever you want to call it) fans are usually your average scene kids with the dumb haircuts and the occasional, "OMMG SHUT UP! THESE GUYS SAVED MY LIFE (sure it did) N IF you HAIT YOUR JEALOUS! 1! " (I misspelled on purpose to replicate a scene kid). If I met one that rambled on saying that, I'd do what anyone else would do: Punch them in their 12 year old face!

The fans are usually either wannabe tough guys or emo/scene kids

Well, I like deathcore, but I'm not elitist about it.

4 The guitar sounds like someone doesn't know how to play one.

Um no. Ever listened to WINDS OF PLAGUE? OR BORN OF OSIRIS?

5 Mitch Lucker Mitchell Adam "Mitch" Lucker was an American musician and lead singer for the deathcore band Suicide Silence.

I was with you except for this.I mean Suicide Silence sucks both with Mitch and Eddie but still doesn't mean he needs to die.

He fronted the most overrated deathcore band ever.

I'm glad he is dead.

6 People call it hardcore

Hardcore is a sub genre of punk. Yes Deathcore is hardcore. It is NOT metal.

No, hardcore is Kissing Candice, Atreyu, Tear Out the Heart, etc.

It's not really when you think about it. Making your music Hardcore would mean you would have the balls to make a song called 'I C*m Blood".

7 Breakdowns

All a breakdown is is when your band is playing at a slower pace. And most of these have no effort put into them. REAL metal have breakdowns as well BUT they aren't as common but when you listen to Pantera's breakdowns, they're actually well implemented.

"Murderer" by Impending Doom has a good breakdown.

8 It causes pointless arguments

If you don't enjoy a genre of music, don't listen to it. This list is utterly pathetic.

Think of all the people who are ignorant about metal in general- the ones who say metal is 'just noise', or Satanic etc. You are as bad as them when you are a dick about something like this for no reason.

This is a very good item

9 As repetitive, boring and generic as reggae
