a term created by those that like to subcategorize as far as they can, when really, almost every single band dubbed as "deathcore" can be considered death metal
. what makes the "genre" deathcore even more ridiculous, is that no bands will actually call themselves, nor admit to being deathcore, the "fans" and familiars are the ones that name it such. the only difference between what people consider death metal and deathcore is that "deathcore" focuses a little bit more on breakdowns, but old death metal bands such as Dying Fetus
uses breakdown very much in their music, and are still called death metal.
