11:46 - Redn1ght What are some more unconventional instruments that have been used in Metal? Accordion comes close.
09:27 - Lokaeda Check the album "morbid fascination of death" by Carpathian Forest, there's a song with some sax on this one.
08:29 - Unhealer First use of sax in metal I can think of is on Pan.Thy.Monium albums. It had to be Swano.
08:10 - AngelofDeth you're right, a little weird to get used to but it works pretty dang well in that song. It needs to be stylized to metal rather than just sticking a weird 80s sax break down in the middle of a song
08:04 - AngelofDeth didnt know other bands were doing it too. Very strange. Ill check that out though
06:56 - hadriel Listen to Ihsahn's On the Shores and all of the doubts anyone would ever have about the sax being in metal will be squelched
05:28 - Unhealer It's because it's just awesome <3 It really fits metal.
Yo. You know what this board needs? A heavy dose of MAN DA FUCK UP!! Srsly!
xDEATHCOREx NOT FOA PUSSAYS!!!!
For the uninformed, xDeathcorex iz definitely THA mozt authentic toughguy genre eva. Combining the blunt br00tality of deff methul and the relentless aggression of HxC, xDeathcorex iz basically a hybrid mash-up of the bestest elements of both offspring of the devil's musiq. 4 realz.
IDK why but despite being one of the mozt interesting buzzgenres of the last couple of years, xDeathcorex iz also a much hated genre. What the eff, ppl? Don't be hatin' on an entire genre solely bc of the pokemon haircuts, the flat-brimmed caps and the mesh shorts. That's just, y'know, pretentious, and totally a matter of snobbism.
Leave it to dis br00tal article to bitchslap some sense into them leather pants-wearing snobs.
True, the genre might be plagued with countless run-of-the-mill $hitty bands / popalr poser pussays. But lettuce be reality, mozt ppl are just dissing xDeathcorex cuz they obviously ghey cuz they obviously ain't gotta clue where da fuck to look for the r33l diamonds in the sea of $hit.
Leave it to dis br00tal article to bitchslap some directions into them clueless lost souls.
BTW: If u happen to be a xDeathcorex connoisseur/all-round coolguy as well, feel free to hurt my feelingz [via guestbook-comments below] for all the mainstream $hit I listed here by adding ur own kewl recommendations. No fakes pls! Note that at least 1/3 of the ppl reading dis site ain't fifteen/braindead morons, so, y'know, rlly no need for a catalogue of Oceano/Emmure/Blowjob For A Cowboy clones. Srsly!
Do u know any authentic leather pants-wearing xDeathcorex buzzbands?
Were u already h8ing on xDeathcorex before it was "in" to h8 on xDeathcorex? Or r u just doin' it bc all ur bros are doin' it?
Do u think cowboys rlly give better blowjobs? What abt underwater handjobs?
Is dis wigger gibberish doin' anyfin for u [via massive broner]?
Anywayz, if u ain't into xDeathcorex u srsly ghey u srsly needs to check on the following sick releases. Letz roll!!!!
Lil' history lesson: Animosity iz one of the firstwavers and major influencers for the genre (and not JFAC liek some faggits claim). The foundations are clrly noticeable: $lammin' deff methul mixed with HxC vibes. U know where dis iz goin': hard-hitting mosh jams that'll get u pumped.
MOSH TILL U DROP!!!! OL SKOOL STYLE

Finally, a place for all of my most hated songs gathered in one headache-inducing article.
Meh, I highly enjoy Ion Dissonance, Despised Icon, All Shall Perishm and Born Of Osiris (from what I know from the list... still have some work to do with it.... El comer ocho is pretty boss too)
That's what deathcore can do, it's sad that most of the scene is shit, there's just too few bands that know how to do it right.
