New Music Excess

Mainstream Metalcore

Posted in Metalcore, Terrorizer by newmusicexcess on February 10, 2010

In issue 193, February 2010 of Terrorizer they have a feature on metalcore. As part of the feature they include an “Anthems For Insubordinates” in the “Mainstream Metalcore” section, a list which they describe as “ten records that, for good or ill, put metalcore on  the mainstream metal map”.

I have just started working my way through the list as most of the albums, except for one, are available to listen to on Spotify (I’ve not checked Grooveshark yet). If you fancy doing the same by whatever means available to you, or just want to see what’s on the list as a discussion starter with your buddies, here is the list in date order, as it appears on page 57 of the magazine.

      Interesting that you mention Parkway Drive, I notice they have a new album out Deep Blue. I’m in the process of checking it out on Spotify.
