hey i just saw that the genre was metal with a melodic twist. That's not generally my cup of tea. I am not MySpace worthy of -core drumming and such. ...But I could always help on another track later if you want to a less metal track, metaloid or a wood track. Ha

Hey dude send me some Reper files of your songs and I'll add drums, mix them, master them, whatever. I need to practice anyways and if you want to hear my stuff, listen to Demo8 in my profile.

Here's my reply to your thread:
The main problem the genre suffers is that around 2005 it was suddenly thrown into the Metal Mainstream and almost the normal mainstream. This sudden mainstream attention on bands like Trivium, Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, suddenly opened the gates for dozens of bands to hop on the popularity, just playing the staple formula of the genre: ripping off At The Gates, adding cheesy melodic choruses, needless breakdowns and sweeping.

This is just what happens when any genre gets suddenly popular, see: Thrash around 1990. It gets flooded with imitators and people riding on success, which makes it stagnate and die.

There is undoubtedly some decent Metalcore out there, I'm quite a Trivium fan (lolz), and I'd say there's still a pulse for the genre in great bands like After The Burial; but unfortunately it's dying; and these imitator bands who jumped on the bandwagon are now leaving metalcore for thrash or melodeath, claiming they were "teh gr1mz trve m3tul" all along.
