Whalecore is a term used to describe bands or albums that incorporate aquatic imagery in their lyrics and artwork. Mastodon originally coined the term whalecore when they produced their album Leviathan in 2004. Other bands such as Children of Bodom and Dethklok quickly adopted the genre as their own, with their most recent releases being recognized as whalecore by their supporters and fans, as well as the media.
