    I honestly wouldn't call The Red Chord deathcore. They're closer to deathgrind with some DEP influence. They sound more like Cephalic Carnage than like Suicide Silence.

    Totally agree concerning Hate Eternal-, DEP- and ND-similarities. I even think they have a bit of groove-southern stuff in their sound.

    I'd say they are more of crazy and absurd mix of Hate Eternal, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Napalm Death, doesn't really make them deathcore imo....

    These guys have death metal influences, hardcore, grind, etc. I don't know if Deathcore is appropriate for them or not, but then again I don't really care that much. I don't like many deathcore bands, but I do love these guys, regardless of genre titling. New material would be cool, or a tour, as they are a good live band. Fused Together In Revolving Doors is still my favorite album of theirs.
