Metalcore –Music that uses the metal skillset to write hardcore-style songs. A post-metal genre which rejects the metal style of narrative composition for the post-hardcore style of intense unrelated diversity, borrowing riffs from rock, funk, jazz, metal, emo, punk and playing them in odd tempo and with abrupt changes. The use of the musical style of heavy metal, especially melodic death metal and the shouting vocal style of hardcore. are also heavily utilized. Emphasis on breakdowns (pioneered by the likes of Pantera), which are slow, intense passages when the audience can mosh. Examples: Parkway Drive, Earth Crises, Unearth, Darkest Hour, Poison The Well, (early) Avenged Sevenfold, All That Remains, Underoath, Sonic Syndicate, Atreyu, Deadlock, Haste The Day, Autumn Offering, In This Moment, As I Lay Dying, God Forbid, Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall and Chaimera.
