If you can recall, back in March we did a special month-long series titled March Madness in which we highlighted some of our favorite records in the “mathcore” genre. The series was quite a hit and was fun for those of us involved, so we collectively decided to create a similar series in which we highlight some of our favorite albums of another genre most of us love – metalcore.
Enter Alive or Just Blogging: the metalcore column series with the corny name that will take place throughout the remainder of September. Throughout this month we will share some of our favorite albums that have been labeled “metalcore” in the hopes that you will rediscover old favorites, or find something new. Because mathcore has been labeled a subsidiary of metalcore by many genre enthusiasts that came before us, you may see some overlap between bands featured on March Madness and bands featured on Alive or Just Blogging. But, just go with it will ya?
We hope you enjoy this series and we encourage you to share your thoughts on these albums and how much you think we suck.
