Melodic metalcore

Melodic metalcore is a fusion genre blending traits with metalcore and melodic death metal, which combines sounds and traits from both genres. It has melodic guitar riffs, blast beats, metalcore-stylized breakdowns and vocals that can range between growls, screaming and clean singing. Melodic metalcore bands take big influence from guitar riffs, and writing styles of Swedish melodic death metal bands, especially bands like At the Gates, Arch Enemy, In Flames and Soilwork.

    Hey I started a new group for music fanatics, the focus is going to be different than the ExMF and the frosty paradigm. It's a bit of an experiment but if a bunch of people get in it could be cool. Join if you are interested. I want this group to become a center for music discussion on Lastfm (even though it's metal centered, other genres are more than welcome to be discussed.) Cheers!

    V Some of the top ones shouldn't be up there in fairness. Melodic metalcore is basically just melodic death metal with hardcore influence. Bands like Killswitch Engage, early BFMV (Poison-era I mean), All That Remains, IKTPQ, Shadows Fall. That sort of stuff. Some people use the tag to literally just mean metalcore bands that are more melodic but the real genre is much more specific than that.

    These bands are all just regular Metalcore bands. Nothing exceptionally melodic about them.

    v your right. Though i am not sure what to classify Asking Alexandria and newer ATR. Bands like Unearth, AILD, KSE, Shadows Fall, ect.. fall under the melodic metalcore tag.

    Isn't this just the other half of metalcore? There's metalcore like Earth Crisis, Hatebreed, Converge, Terror that aren't exactly melodic, then bands like Unearth, As I Lay Dying, Killswitch engage? Or does this refer to the emo metalcore bands like Asking Alexandria, All That Remains (newer albums anyway)?
