They pretty much created the metalcore genre

That statement couldn't be more wrong.

Metalcore spawned when hardcore punk bands crossed over with thrash metal, i.e. D.R.I. and The Suicidal Tendencies.

Other than these cross-over bands, the first wave of metalcore consisted of bands like Hatebreed, Integrity, Converge, Shai Hulud, Biohazard, Earth Crisis, and Rorschach. Late 80's - Early 90's.


Poison The Well plays more of a Melodic Metalcore, and definitely did not create the genre.

Ya I think I just mispoke on that one. Actually a few of those bands I didn't know predated ptw haha. I guess melodic metalcore was more what I was going for but The Opposite is the earliest record I've heard that follows that standard metalcore formula. My bad I didn''t want to come off as an uninformed douche telling the world about my expertise. I'll have that edited. Interested to see your opinion on their ranking however.

My bad too. I probably sounded like an elitist douche informing the world about my all-knowing hardcore knowledge. Lol. Anyways.... I liked You Come Before You and Tear From The Red about equally and their other three releases less than that.

1. You Come Before You = Tear From The Red
2. The Opposite of December = Versions = The Tropic Rot

I haven't listened to them in a long time though. Maybe I should revisit this stuff.
