    I gotta disagree there. Pretty much all deathcore is identikit copies of the first bands. I honestly can't think of a band in that genre who aren't abysmal.

    I agree and disagree with you. Some are dreadful(Waking the Cadaver) But there are some actual really good ones out there. Some good ones include Whitechapel and Job for a cowboy's newer album. I don't know if you heard it(JFAC's new album) but it's actually really technical and intricate. Their drummer is a beast.

    I might look into it - my problem with the genre is mostly the structuring - it almost entirely follows the tech riff / finger tap to vague chorus to breakdown and repeats. And in most cases, every song sounds exactly the same to me.

    I'm finding the standard V/C/V/C/M8/C/C structure boring now, hell, most song structures are boring me sideways. Songs that lack a defined structure are appealing a lot more to me, especially if they're built around a progression. An example I'd give would be Gojira's Backbone - there's repetition and two distinct segments, but nothing resembling a chorus.

    Ya I gotcha. JFAC like i said is actually really talented. They use a lot of different meters and they change the time signature a lot. They also like harmonic minor. If you do decide to look it up look up the song unfurling a darkened gospel. Their new music actually rarely has breakdowns. Just technical death metal. And it sounds like you'd like it lol. Do you like The Faceless?

    I'm not really big on death metal styles myself - I'm more of a fan of progressive stuff - SikTh, etc - heavy polyrhythmics and suchforth.

    I actually don't like Waking the Cadavar, just the hilarity of the misheard lyrics video, sorry :p.
