The Metal and Hardcore Bonding Since the 1980’s!

Since the 1980s, metal and hardcore have had a tumultuous relationship. Both genres share common roots in punk rock and heavy metal, but their differences in approach and attitude have often led to conflict. Despite this, there have been numerous instances of collaboration between the two scenes that have yielded exciting results.
One notable example is the crossover thrash movement that emerged in the mid-1980s, which saw bands like D.R.I., Suicidal Tendencies, and S.O.D. blending elements of hardcore punk with thrash metal to create a new sound that was both aggressive and catchy. This movement had a significant impact on both genres and helped to bridge the gap between them.

However, there have also been instances where metal academia has overlooked or dismissed hardcore as a legitimate genre worthy of study. But with the rise of bands such as Killswitch Engage, Bleeding Through, Code Orange, and Asking Alexandria. You cannot deny the cold hard facts that Modern metalcore continues to flourish amongst the independent heavy metal world with continuous sold out shows across the United States and beyond.
