    "Fusion" genres like metalcore are like that though. They exist on a spectrum between their two (or more) parent genres. Acting like there is a big enough difference between "metalcore" and "metallic hardcore" to use the terms as anything other than synonyms is drawing differences that aren't necessary.

    I'm more into OG metalcore like Converge, Earth Crisis, Integrity, Starkweather and Cave In as mentioned but I still consider metalcore and metallic hardcore difference even during that time period when it was coming about. Like Earth Crisis or Starkweather is "metal enough" to be metalcore as opposed to metallic hardcore so to speak.

    Metallic Hardcore is just another form of Metalcore, all of those bands you mentioned are Metalcore just different forms of it.

    Good taste though. Just not Scene at all.

    v lol why it always non-Scenesters acting like their opinion on Scenecore matters? You rarely see scene kids talking shit on Metallic Hardcore so I can't understand why it would work the other way around. You're simply not true Scene.

    "saying that Metalcore is another word for Metallic Hardcore is pushing it" - Only if you're a former scene kiddie who grew up with melodic metalcore acts like Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying and Shadows Fall instead of real metalcore like Converge, Earth Crisis, Integrity, Starkweather and Cave In.

    I miss the days of sentence long song titles and neon band merch. There's still plenty of good Metalcore coming out, but the genre will be stagnant until the zany era makes a return. It's inevitable. Just a matter of when.
