A type of metalcore, which originated in 90s in NYC, usually heavily influenced by death metal, the pioneer band in the 90s was Bulldoze, whose album The Final Beatdown gave the genre its name. Negative lyrics are common for this genre, mostly focused on personal struggle, dejection and socio-economic issues.
Instrumentally far more emphasizing the metal aspects with very heavy and aggressive metal riffs and tremolo picking but mixed with hardcore punk aggression and delivery as well as the use of breakdowns. Includes growls and gruff singing.
