Any thoughts on the recent wave of Metalcore?

Mon, 18/11/2019 - 07:18

So for the past 5 years or so, there has been a movement bringing back the older style of metalcore from the 90s with a very modern and gritty punch, as well as influences outside of that blueprint. Some of these bands include (Code Orange, Knocked Loose, Vein, Harm's Way, Sanction, Candy, Year Of The Knife, SeeYouSpaceCowboy, Jesus Piece, Counterparts, Xibalba, Fuming Mouth, etc).

Not everyone is aware of these bands but, in terms of the next generation of heavy music these are the acts I look towards bringing a new younger crowd while engaging with the older fans as well. I know they play to hardcore for the most part, but these acts push the boundaries into the metal, hardcore, and even hip hop scene to diversify their audiences.

Who has heard of these groups? If you have, what are your favorite bands and albums in this sound? Have you also seen them live?

There's a video that goes into this right here:
