Dear lord, here we go. This is far from my favorite genre, but I still love it. Here we go!

  • Broken Flesh - Ignominy
  • Abated Mass of Flesh - Deathcrusher
  • Abated Mass of Flesh - Violence
  • Antidemon - Welcome to Death
  • Mortification - Terminate Damnation

Deathcrusher is such a great song ^^  I mean, with a name like that, how could it not be?

I'm not a big fan of that style, though I do particularly like:

Syringe - Hellrazer

Syringe - Twisted Words

Blood Thirsty - O Come Emmanuel

It's time for the next one!  This subgenre is a very small subset, although it does contain some spectacular bands.  Give us your top 5 songs! Go!


Gothic Metal - i.e. Saviour Machine, Virgin Black, Amos, Illuminandi, etc.

Right on.  I've been meaning to look more into Illuminandi.  I remember thinking they were a little too folky for me when I checked into them a long time ago, but if they're more on the gothic side, I might really enjoy them.

They do have a strong folk influence as well.  Their album In Via probably has more of a gothic rock influence, so you might like that album.

Cool.  I listened to them some on Youtube.  They're pretty good though I don't think quite my cup of tea.  :)

Deathcore is definitely not my thing... though I think Becoming The Archetype's most recent album I Am is considered such and it's pretty good.  My favorite track is The War Ender.  The title track is also quite good.

^Is Mortal Treason considered deathcore?  I thought they were more metalcore?  (This is pretty beyond my area of expertise, so I admit ignorance!)

Speaking of though, aren't they working on new material?  I enjoy Sunrise...

I think Mortal Treason qualifies a little bit. They are more metalcore, but they also have death metal elements as well, which makes them deathcore. But to answer your question, Mortal Treason is on hiatus.

Here's my list, albeit a little late:


  • In the Midst of Lions - Herod's Demise (the line "now tell me as the worms consume your flesh, do you fear my God now?" gets me every time)
  • With Blood Comes Cleansing - Golgotha
  • Impending Doom - There Will Be Violence
  • As Hell Retreats - Young Heretic
  • Second Thief - Abolition


Hard to come up with just 5, I used to listen to this subgenre a lot.  It was my gateway to more traditional death metal ^_^  It also makes me sad that some of these bands have broken up :(

It's time for a new subgenre!


Post-Hardcore - i.e. Burden of a Day, I Am Alpha and Omega, Cry of the Afflicted, Fallstar, etc.


Post your five favorite post-hardcore songs!  We've only got a few more subgenres to go, so we're nearing the home stretch!  Thanks to everyone that has participated!

I sadly can't contribute to this one as I haven't really listened to this genre much. But I will check out bands people list :)

Would Hands count?  I've heard they're pretty good.  Though as with Getthepoint, I'm otherwise unable to contribute as well.

I would classify Hands more as melodic hardcore, although sometimes the lines blur.  They are an awesome band.  I guess the way I look at post-hardcore is that it's kind of a cross between hardcore and punk with post rock elements, although that's probably not the best description.  I'll give y'all my 5 as an example:


  • Underoath - A Boy Brushed Red Living in Black and White
  • Cry of the Afflicted - Heed the Sound
  • Burden of a Day - Sly Foxes
  • I Am Alpha and Omega - The Roar and the Whisper
  • Burden of a Day - I'm Laughing on the Outside


The Underoath song is interesting because most of what they did was metalcore, but They're Only Chasing Safety is definitely more on the post-hardcore side.
