First off let me say that I don't listen to much metal and when I do I listen to old classic stuff like Metallica and what not. But not any Galm.

I was wondering if there was any non-Satanic modern metalcore bands that arn't christain bands or is that asking too much?

You know how old bands still had that dark image or whatever but were not all satanic and stuff? That's more what I'm looking for just a good metalcore band with original lyrics and sound.

EDIT: Please read the re-stated first post. A few post down.

So...many...flaws. Can't...address...them....all.... Not all metalcore bands are intrinsically Satanic, as you insinuated. Give me examples of 'dark image'...

Like I said I don't listen to much metal. But you know how many metal bands have "Satanic stars" (or whatever there called) all over the place and talk anti-religious and whatnot? I'm more looking for more genetic metal band without a lot of the stereotypes.

I would just google this if it were me, but since im an avid fan of metal i can help you out myself. Also, i wouldnt call Metallica "metalcore".

You have me a little confused. Are you looking for non-religious bands altogether or non-satanic or non-christian? You werent very clear about this between your topic title and your message

Maybe I am getting old,but what the heck makes a band metalcore versus the 500 other sub-genres of the genre. And yeah,its been my experience in most of metal,bands that have nothing to do with satan usually outweigh those that do.

I think he asking for a band that doesnt include there religious views all over the place.
#8 Posted by nirvana563 (2913 posts) -
Let me re-state this. I'm look for a metalcore or any type of metal band that does not have anti-religious/pro-Satanic lyrics but just has good music and original lyrics that isn't just yelling (few bands that do that I can get into).
#9 Posted by elfimis (1099 posts) -
I know im being complicated, but metal is so sub-genre'd so i need a more specific type of metal that your looking for. Try Between the Buried and Me, probably to thrash for someone that likes metallica though.

I'm thinking more metalcore, trash, groove metal type stuff.
#11 Posted by nirvana563 (2913 posts) -
Is Opeth satanic? I have known about them for a long time.

EDIT: Between the Buried and Me sounds ok, a little lighter on the vocals would be cool but if that's how it's done today then I'm fine with it.

I dunno exactly what you want, but you should probably listen to Mastodon anyway. Here ya go!

They do a whole cd based vaguely around Moby Dick and other giant sea creatures, or the sea in general.... its pretty much awsesome.

Edit-not the quote. and I see know that it keeps changing. Just one of them the saying sounded like Blue velvet " a bullet is a love letter" speech. And when I came into edit, it is know a nice discreet piece of the La Sexorcisto devil music vol.1 cover. Which leads me to say you have the BEST SIG EVER.

Hmm... i think you must have imagined it....

No, that must have been the Alexisonfire sig, and a name of one of thier songs. And this totally isnt derailing because i would recommend them too. Theyre from canada and have tons of energy, but some people dont like the screaming which is silly.

Heres the song in question, dont mind the video!

nocturnus is pretty good. their lyrics are more sci-fi themed, they sound relatively thrashy, and id say their vocals arent terribly harsh in terms of metal.

First of all learn what Satanism is please.

Its just very close to the frank booth speech in blue velvet then.

Metalcore isn't really satanic it's more the Black Metal stuff. There are christian metalcore bands eg. As I Lay Dying
#21 Posted by Benevolentbob (1178 posts) -

It's very rare that a metalcore band has satanic themes. Why are you listening to metalcore anyway? That stuff is total crap.

Are you talking about a pentagram? Originally they're not satanic...only when turned upside down.

Try checking out this song. It's called Anya by Deep Purple.

Metalcore is never satanic. I had to get that out of my system first. Check out Killswitch engage; they are the only metalcore band I like.

The dark metal geeks made the word up for the more popular metal bands that dont growl thewhole song... Bands that sing and also scream lyrics like Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Bullet for my Valentine, All that Remains, Machine Head, Soilwork, etc etc are so called "metalcore". Those are the good bands! Metalcore is where its at, i guess? Lots of bands make fun of the word

:lol: wow guy. Do not speak of things you know of. Metalcore is a fusion genre of metal and hardcore. Hence the name. The hardcore part mostly being breakdowns. It has nothing to do with vocals.

Ever thought that, hey, maybe they are actually talking about metalcore bands that they dont like? Personally I like my metal and hardcore seperate. Keep Behemoth away from Refused I say.

Most Metalcore bands are not Satanic.

#38 Posted by Netherscourge (16328 posts) -

None of them are really satanic - they just use the imagery and lyrics for shock-value, which turns on some freaky-deak fans.

Because lord knows the music alone isn't selling any albums...

#39 Posted by LikeHaterade (10643 posts) -

IMO, "core" and "metal" do not belong together. Ever. I think perhaps you were thinking of non-satanic death metal bands? In which case there are. You don't have much of a metal library if you just listen to satanic metal. In fact, most of death metal is not satanic. Black metal on the other hand is generally satanic due to many of the black metal band members being involved in church burnings, murders, etc...

If you look at the most popular metalcore bands you'll notice that nearly all of them are Christian.

Yeah but they all suck.
#43 Posted by GettingTired (5994 posts) -
Are you sure you're not confusing metalcore with black metal? I've never seen any metalcore band that has a "satanic image". Infact, quite a lot of metalcore bands are Christian.

That's funny coming from someone with power metal, thrash, and black metal in their sig. Hooray for generic every-song-sounds-the-same bands that all wear leather and take grainy black and white photos of themselves in corpse paint infront of cemeteries and churches because it's oh-so folksy and dark.

#45 Posted by Lief_Ericson (7082 posts) -

So you're saying Amon Amarth's songs all sound the same? Does DragonForce dress in leather and burn churches? I've never seen a single band on that list dress up in leather and take photos in front of a cemetery or church. You, sir, are ignorant. And an idiot.

Since when in the **** are Metalcore bands Satanic?

Ridiculous.

And I could of sworn that this thread is old...

Metalcore is heavily punk influenced. That's where the -core tag comes from. It's a "fusion" genre of metal (mostly from the melodic and thrash genres) and hardcore punk. It sounds pretty different than most metal so it's easy to tell.

Metalcore almost never has any "satanic" influences. I mean I suggest you learn what Satanism actually is first, as real Satanism doesn't involve worshipping Satan. My favorite metalcore/deathcore bands are Fall of Serenity and newer Heaven Shall Burn (mostly just the new album as it's more metal than core; and no they're not satanic. They were named for a Darkthrone song).

#49 Posted by njean777 (3807 posts) -

um if you want metalcore bands that are not christian or satanic good bands to listen to are

Killswitch engage

Miss may i

Not true at all. You're focusing on just black metal, and just a small portion of black metal (the early second wave, all of which abandoned that more or less, or the modern imitators). Listen to Peste Noire, Krallice, or Alcest (I guess you could argue the last one as not being true black metal but whatever) and say that.
