Once upon a time, the deathcore scene was a very small group of bands who were made up of kids who liked hardcore and death metal pretty much equally. It was for dirty, weird kids who didn’t give a fuck and you definitely weren’t getting laid playing that style– a far cry from today, where the formula is something like:
- Get sick gauges/sleeves at 19
- Copy Suicidechapel riffs
- Get laid/profit
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not hating on current deathcore or being an oldfag who is lamenting about how THINGS WERE SO MUCH BETTER BACK IN 2002, I’m just saying it was very different at that time. And actually, I think most of the bands from that scene didn’t age very well and that shit sucks when you listen to it today. But there is one band who IMO stood the test of time but sadly doesn’t get a lot of love: ANIMOSITY.
Their early stuff is a little too unpolished for me, but even still is solid. You have to give them some serious dap for being essentially a DIY hardcore band who sounded like Dying Fetus back when almost zero hardcore kids knew anything about death metal.
They didn’t get REALLY good until “Animal” IMO, which is a sick record. It’s technical and brutal, but still really catchy. Also, sick drumming without ever overplaying or getting into phaggy, prog territory. I wish more current deathcore bands would start ripping this album off!
Is this the original “party deathcore” video?? The best part? No fucking girls!! I mean I am all about hot sluts but there’s a time for just getting wasted and moshing with your bros, you know? Nobody wants girls around to ruin the fun. Oh and the bassist is wearing an Odious Mortem shirt– mirin.
U moshing??? Does anyone know who this band is in 2k11, other than grose metal nerds?? Why didn’t they ever get the recognition they deserved?? Ahead of their time, too ugly, or both?
