More info on this page.[edit]

Add more info with reliable sources all over places. I needed to add the pioneers of deathcore, the popularity, the criticism and vocal techniques and stuff. Added more. The article lacked information before the edit. If you find unreliable sources although the sources are reliable, just remove them or the content unless it has a source for it that IS reliable. Do NOT revert it. Unless it's completely poorly sourced or whatever. We also HAD to put how the vocals can be called "pig squeals". And we needed a criticism section talking about how it got a MAJOR controversy as 'not real death metal

Its actually a good starting point to help develop the article. I think it's impossible to neglect the use of pig squeals in the music. If anything it needs to be elaborated on to describe what it sounds like. The only change to the history section is that isn't Job for a Cowboy seen as the pioneers alongside BMTH and SS? The criticism section isn't too bad, it's well sourced and approaches it objectively, hopefully it can be developed to be more unbias. But it's important to remember we are here to write about the genres history and document journalised fact rather than prove it's not 'real' death metal. Overall good work!

Unreliable Sources[edit]

I added the unreliable sources tag since someone has been adding a bunch of metalzine/blog sources like metalsucks, and others.

Edit request on 23 June 2013[edit]

Remove My Bitter End from the list and link too Belay My Last and We Are the End (are on the list but only as text, not as link to a wikiarticle. -- (talk) 06:51, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Not done: Belay My Last and We Are the End aren't linked because there are no such articles on Wikipedia to link to. Of course, you're more than welcome to look into starting articles on them! As for My Bitter End, I've de-wikified it and fixed the citation, but I don't think there's any real need to remove it. Feel free to reopen the edit request if you have a reason why. 786b6364 (talk) 17:13, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
If you click on the links can you see the articles got deleted because of no notability. If the band are deleted because of notability why so put it on the list? -- (talk) 21:27, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
Not done: If the bands are not notable, there is no point adding them to the list. Feel free to re-open the request or contact me on my Talk page. Cheers! -- TOW  07:29, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Edit request on November 19 2013[edit]

Add Reflections and The Browning to the list and remove The Black Dahlia Murder and Motionless in White. The Black Dahlia Murder is NOT deathcore, they're melodic death metal. Motionless in White are metalcore, putting Motionless in White in a deathcore category is like calling August Burns Red deathcore. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SeaOfSmiles (talkcontribs) 05:07, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

Mention more about the genre's development as of late[edit]

More examples are required. For example, there has recently been a big trend of bands combining deathcore and symphony, such as Assemble the Chariots, Make Them Suffer and Lorelei. There are also bands who combine deathcore with many genres at once, such as djent, classical music and progressive metal, such as Slice the Cake or Ovid's Withering. You can add those examples and provide some reference to some Sputnik review or something to back it up. Xfing (talk) 20:26, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

An Australian Band called Thy Art Is Murder are considered deathcore and isn't featured in this list. Beansyy (talk) 04:54, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

TAIM isn't on here? Hold on, I'm adding them. I thought they were on here, that's strange. Second Skin (talk) 13:18, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Academic article on Deathcore[edit]

This article appeared on the internet very recently and is a academic one (Titled: ‘MySpace bands’ and ‘tagging wars’ Conflicts of genre, work ethic and media platforms in an extreme music scene) and was written by "Tamás Tófalvy, Ph.D., an assistant professor at Budapest University of Technology and Economics" and was published on First Monday. I think the question is (before I've read it) does it have a place on wikipedia and would it be useful? Jonjonjohny (talk) 18:25, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

It's published through a peer-reviewed journal, so that alone is enough for it to be used as a reliable source. The author is also vice-chair of the Hungarian International Association for the Study of Popular Music, so that shores up things even further. Go ahead and use this, it's a fantastic find.--¿3family6 contribs 18:58, 15 September 2014 (UTC)


You could argue that it's already noted with the "Metalcore" in stylistic origins, but I feel deathcore (especially in the early 00's) was substantially hardcore-influenced to perhaps have it there. Although one could argue it's already sorta there because metalcore itself takes influences from hardcore. So it's more of an option. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:10, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

I agree with you, and there was a previous version, supported by myself, that mentioned hardcore as well as metalcore.--3family6 (Talk to me | See what I have done) 15:06, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
If there are sources in the text that support this then it should be restored.--MASHAUNIX 00:32, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Can't really agree with this; the most professional sources such as Revolver on their Dawn of Deathcore article specify metalcore with the breakdowns in deathcore only being an element of the hardcore element to metalcore. Also I hate to use original research, but if you listen to deathcore it doesn't at all sound like it has anything that remotely sounds similar to Trapped Under Ice, Backtrack, Madball or Sheer Terror as a part of the sound. Just saying... Second Skin (talk) 05:10, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
