    you really need a soft side for "melodic hardcore" to like

    edit: and sensational lyrics/patterns to top it off.

    I get what stealth is saying. I mean I actually like this style (not guna say the "D" word, we all know where that leads xD) bit admittedly there are people who do more interesting things with this sound haha.

    its all for the atmospheric tension, opposed to being more creative.

    edit: imo that is.
    edit: you wouldn't compare them to Animals As leaders. ahaha.

    there are certain songs and sounds that just don't compare the same way unless its tuned in drop Bb, or drop C. D standard is an exception. i wouldn't write a song in drop C# and try to create the same sound in Drop A 7-string tuning.

    maybe im just over analyzing..

    edit: the real point is, Bb tuning excels for melodic hardcore music. as well as C/D standard.

    How are Volumes melodic hardcore?
    Sounds like deathcore to me.

    Two singers - Check
    Song that starts off with clean guitar similar to anything by Tesseract - Check
    Whole song in 4/4 with odd 32nd note kick - Check
    Band name that's a plural of something - Check

    Totally original :rolleyes:

    got bored 1 minute in, anyone ever think of using melody in their music nnowadays? :2c:

    Honestly Volumes are one of the better djeathcore bands

    Maybe they'll grow out of that toughguycore gangster market fit cap aesthetic though.

    I think Volumes is the shit.

    I listen to Edge Of The Earth, Intake and Via all the time.

    Maybe that's because I'm coming off of a 2 year streak of nothing but brutal death metal. Need something a bit lighter but still heavy in my diet.

    1. Is this an observation or is it supposed to fit some mold in the genre? I don't even.
    2. As opposed to distorted guitars? It doesn't even give off the same vibe as TesseracT in the slightest.
    3. Meter changes are a requirement to be good? Syncopation is odd?
    4. Because the band name is what matters. The music comes second. :rolleyes:


    What are you getting at?


    Anyways, Michael sounds so aggressive live. Love it.

    For some reason I felt like I was watching a rap battle between a couple dorky, screaming white dudes.
