    I don't know why anybody listens to anything else besides progressive metalcore for modern metalcore these days, unless it's Converge or Misery Signals based it's usually dated as fuck.

    It's that metalcore changed so much that really the newer bands should be under a different genre, but since the more popular metalcore bands already kept the name the older metalcore bands (or fans of the genre) wanted Metallic Hardcore name instead. It's pretty much the same problem with modern melodeath bands. Some old school melodeath fans want modern melodeath to be named 'melodic metal' because there's no 'death metal' in those bands, it's usually easier to call the early melodeath style, 'old school melodeath'. Same problem is with emo. I blame the artists who claim their style is something that is not clearly what it is. That's one reason many melodic metalcore bands are often mislabeled as melodeath, the other would be because there are melodeath influences. I'm a fan of both the new and old, but i think there should be a better way for a style to be labeled so you don't get a bunch of bands that don't sound like anything what you want to hear.

    Metallic Hardcore is so lame. It just sounds like Hardcore Punk with metal riffs. I want my slick production and breakdowns.

    v Metalcore and Metallic Hardcore are the same thing, just that metallic hardcore is another dumb word like "skramz" to separate "fake metalcore" from "real metalcore".
