Deathcore

MetalMusicArchives.com — the ultimate metal music online community, from the creators of progarchives.com

Deathcore, which emerged in the early 2000s, is a sub-genre of metalcore which fuses elements of hardcore punk and death metal. Deathcore is similar to metalcore musically, except it is much heavier, with a heavier emphasis on blast beats, death metal growling vocals, and more intense breakdowns. The genre has enjoyed moderate popularity in the extreme metal scene.

SUICIDE SILENCE Suicide Silence

Album · 2017 · Deathcore
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Kev Rowland
Suicide Silence are one of those bands who have emotionally been through a great deal, as after three albums their singer Mitch Lucker was killed in a motorbike accident. The band decided to keep going, and eventually found a replacement in Eddie Hermida and released ‘You Can’t Stop me’ in 2014. After the trauma, this is the re-set, and they have brought in famed producer Ross Robinson to help them do just that. Now, I saw the original band at a Megadeth-headlined festival in Auckland back in 2010, and cam remember going for a beer as that was more interesting than watching the band. Now, I like deathcore as much as the next person, and I know these guys have recently been touring with Whitechapel who I admire a great deal (saw them support Trivium and it was awesome), but there is something about these guys that I just can’t get past.

I don’t know exactly what it is, but their mix of different styles always makes me think that they’re trying way too hard. They have songs, or at least bits of songs, that just blow my mind, but there are also way too many others where I just don’t see the point. Ross has done a superb job, as always, and I must confess that the more I have listened to this the more I have liked it, but it just isn’t for me. It isn’t for me, and I am sure that there plenty that are going to rave over it, but there is far more music out there that I would rather listen to.

This Brisbane-based deathcore act have been through loads of line-up changes in their career, so it is something of a surprise to me to hear the power contained within their third full-length album. It is brutal, it is riff-hungry, yet is also incredibly complex with much more intricacy than one might imagine from music as over the top as this. How drummer Jayden Mason can keep this up for a full set I have no idea, he must be a mess at the end of a gig, but it is his power that sets the foundation for everything else the band is doing. The production has an almost black metal feel to it, and long held down high guitar notes certainly add an additional element, but it is the riff fest taking place in the lower registers that people are going to really interested in, while new singer Poida sounds like he has been at the heart of the band for years.

Deathcore may not be to everyone’s tastes, and there are often instances when it misses in one area or another, but this is pretty close to being a perfect example of the genre, and if this is what you like to listen to then buy the album, turn it up to the max, and sit back with a smile and silently thank me for telling you about them. Awesome.

BORN OF OSIRIS The Eternal Reign

I am grateful to post the first review of THE ETERNAL REIGN. If you're a fan of Born Of Osiris, as I definitely am, I think THE ETERNAL REIGN is a nonessential disc. It's great music, but the original THE NEW REIGN was already great music. Some may criticize the original's sound quality. I assume that THE ETERNAL REIGN is a re-recording, not just a remastering. I don't care much about sound quality as long as you can hear it, and I think the original sounded just fine. If you are just starting to familiarize yourself with the band, THE ETERNAL REIGN is a very good place to start. If you already think Born of Osiris is an amazing metal band regardless of subgenre, the original album works just as well.

DESPISED ICON Beast

Album · 2016 · Deathcore
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Beast" is the 5th full-length studio album by Canada, Montreal based deathcore act Despised Icon. The album was released through Nuclear Blast Records in July 2016. Despised Icon was formed in 2002 and released four full-length studio albums before disbanding in December 2010. They reunited in 2014 to play concerts in Europe and North America, and apparently whatever made them split-up was solved, because they opted to record "Beast". It´s their first album in 7 years since the release of "Day of Mourning (2009)". There´s been one lineup change since the predecessor as bassist Max Lavelle has been replaced by Sebastien Piché.

Stylistically the music on "Beast" is a technically well played type of deathcore with strong hardcore leanings (the riot gang vocals are great) and the occasional deathgrind part. It´s incredibly powerful and packed with brutal grooves, tempo changes, and aggressive raw vocals. There´s good variation between tracks on the 10 track, 29:02 minutes long album, which helps ensure that "Beast" is an entertaining release throughout. The high level musicianship is another great asset. Hard edged precision playing and two lead vocalists who compliment each other well. A deep intelligible semi-growling/raw hardcore shouting vocalist and a slightly higher pitched snarling aggressive one (there are a few pig grunts/squeals on the album too, but they are not the dominant vocal style). "Beast" is definitely a proper title for this vicious animal of an album.

Highligths include the powerful opening track "The Aftermath", "Inner Demons" (the closing minute is absolutely Scorching), the melodeath/deathgrind attack of "Drapeau noir", and the raw hardcore attitude driven "Bad Vibes". The remaining part of the album is also filled with quality material though.

"Beast" is one of those releases that are bound to leave you breathless because of the high level of brutality and aggression on display. It could have been a one-dimensional listen, but the variation between tracks and a clever tracklist selection, ensure that it never happens. Add to that high level musicianship and an incredibly well sounding production job, and you have a high quality release on your hands. "Beast" is overall a great comeback release by Despised Icon and a 4 star (80%) rating is fully deserved.

CARNIFEX Slow Death

Album · 2016 · Deathcore
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Vim Fuego
Seen as one of the leading lights of the deathcore scene, Carnifex have gained a lot of notice in the metal and social media. If “Slow Death” is any indicator to go by, it’s another case of hype building up the mediocre to a status far beyond that it deserves.

“Slow Death” in a word, is boring.

Music is supposed to cause some sort of strong reaction in a listener, whether it be raptures of ecstasy at a Beethoven symphony or Slayer’s “Reign In Blood”, or disgust at vile Autopsy lyrics, or even uncomfortable laughter at terribly politically incorrect Anal Cunt song titles. Apathy is not a strong nor useful reaction to music, which is what this album induces.

Yes, the band members in Carnifex are highly skilled musicians. Yes, the music has excellent production values. These are not what’s at fault here. The biggest problem is the straight-jacketed genre of music these musicians perform. It is unoriginal, predictable, interchangeable, and ultimately dull.

There’s no need to isolate any highlights, because there aren’t any, but there’s no discernible low points either. This album is ten tracks of heavy, competently executed metal, with death metal-ish vocals and a few electronic flourishes. All ten are virtually indistinguishable.

Deathcore’s protectors will rabidly devour this album. That is their right. It is also the right of everyone else not to have to subject themselves to such uninspiring music.
