Deathcore Bands Use The Same Riffs (A Theoretical Study)

When most well-adjusted, employed people think of metal, the sound they probably imagine is something along the lines of deathcore: just loud, repetitive, screaming, inane nonsense. Deathcore is one of the most hilarious ideas metal bands have ever come up with – and though I don’t normally toast an entire subgenre, it is also, for sure, one of the least inspired forms of music ever made.

YouTuber Zero_Life_Left agrees, but wanted to define exactly why bands like Oceano, Thy Art is Murder, The Acacia Strain, etc. all literally sound exactly the same, so they put together this tremendous little analysis video that (don’t laugh) breaks it all down.
