Hey bro’s it’s C.N (ft T.Money) here. This post is going to be very serious, because we could be dealing with an imminent death.
Deathcore and Metalcore was going strong just a few years ago, in local venues everywhere you could find a “massacre the victims” or “from noun to noun” ringing out in the hallowed halls of mosh brotherhood.
But then around 2010/2011, something happened.
The big deathcore bands are always going to be remembered and will be seen as seminal in a couple years, but we will get to them later. What we are talking about here is roughly mid level Deathcore bands that aren’t as well known as their peers. They could be at risk of just becoming a forgotten memory of mesh shorts past.
Suffokate are one of those bands to me, I love them and they are sick but they don’t seem to get as much attention as a band like Whitechapel.
Salt the wound had it all. Melodic parts, breakdowns, among other things.
This song brings the mosh, and encourages hearty meals. Soup can ad flair to a winter dinner party and is convenient too!
…And hell followed with is definitely a band I think should get more attention.
Great riffs, sick groove parts and even a cool solo!
But now the question…Why is mid level Deathcore getting overlooked? What is going on here? How can they stay current and be remembered among their peers for their greatness?
The mosh gods will smile upon them if they pray at the alter of Zeus (the broducer that is)
It’s all in the name. It’s a subliminal hint of how to achieve maximum mosh sent from the unholy gods of tone.
That’s right. Turn up those midz and add a noise gate bby, we’re in business now.
A scientific study has proven mosh is increased by 20% per extra string on a guitar.
Factor in an extra 10% for drop tunings. Whitechapel has 50% more mosh than most other bands, PROVEN SCIENCE.
now with 5 new AXE-FX presets!
A good example of a band going from “just underneath the radar” to getting bigger by the minute is CG.
According to intense study, scrutiny and fact checking by the scientists in the moshology department, this band has a full 30% more mosh. Scientific study is still required to see if solos should ad or subtract from the overall mosh of the band.
Needless to say, this band really took off when shredlord Jason joined from Djentcore gods Born Of Osiris. Jason is proven to ad an extra 10 percent to mosh capabilities, bringing them up to 40% more mosh capabilities than a most bands.
Another favorite of mine and example of more midz=more mosh.
These guys used to be a cool noodley deathcore band and for a long time, flew just under the radar for lots of people. Enjoyable, but this shit they are on now is god tier.
Living proof that at every genres core is a nugget of gold. It’s what’s added to it that makes it enjoyable or not enjoyable for certain tastes.
Goes hard in the pit or on the go!
BMTH is was always big. Mainly because they keep it on the next level.
This new song is a combination of djent and post-rock.
You might be thinking “wow, that sounds like it’ll suck”
But no, BMTH show us neckbeardy genres when stripped down to the bones become very conductive to mosh.
E.G when Deathcore came out it was basically stripped down 90′s Death metal with breakdowns.
In the same way, stripped down post-rock and djent become especially moshtastic.
Just imagine the earnestness as thousands of DIY kids join in on the chants when the post-rock parts hit, then proceed to mosh as the djent parts kick in.
So, for our bro’s out there scooting under the radar listen up.
Turn up the midz. An ambient clean part before the breakdown sometimes. Maybe an extra string here or there. Another noise gate and compressor never killed anyone.
Keep that frequency at 1.4kHz bro’s.
Recipes for success are best served with a hearty midrange my friends.
What do you think of deathcore? Are you prepared for the next evolution?
