Carnifex Vocalist on the State of Deathcore: “There’s Really Just Us and Suicide Silence and Whitechapel Left”
Great news, guys: deathcore is done! I know, I was surprised to hear it, too, ‘specially since I still get like eighteen promos for deathcore bands every day. But Carnifex vocalist Scott Lewis told Alt Press that the trend is over so it must be over:
“’07, ’08, MySpace was still a big thing, so a lot of bands that came out of the sort of MySpace era really got a bunch of shit. And now that that’s gone away and a lot of those fans went away and it sort of… I mean if you look at ‘deathcore,’ there’s really just us and Suicide [Silence] and Whitechapel left.”
Congrats to metal fans across the world for surviving another trend in extreme music. Someday you’ll be able to tell your grandkids you were there.
In related news, The Acacia Strain, Ion Dissonance, Despised Icon, Thy Art is Murder, Emmure, Chelsea Grin, Impending Doom, Winds of Plague, Fit for an Autopsy, After the Burial, Within the Ruins, Oceano, Upon a Burning Body, and dozens of other bands all simultaneously disappeared last night. For reasons we’ve been unable to determine as of yet, authorities are not the least bit concerned with the mass disintegration of hundreds of young men adorned with ear gauges and basketball shorts. More news on this supernatural occurrence as it develops.
