The typical genre of music that gringle
s listen to. It appeals to a wide enough audience that makes the bands relatively successful and famous, but a narrow enough audience that they don't sell out. It is stylized by overt technicality, yet not without melodic quality and is a direct descendant of hardcore metal
and technical death metal
. Typical bands of this genre are Veil Of Maya
, The Faceless
, Born of Osiris
, The Red Chord
, The Acacia Strain
, Through The Eyes Of The Dead
Sound: similar to djent
, but as with emo
, and any other prevalent subculture, the bands are less characterized by their sound and more by their audience. i.e. the gringles.
Etymology: "grime," referring to the grimy, showerless nature of the bands' audience + "core," indicating that it is heavier than crossover grime
Gringle: Yo, you guys tryina go to the Veil of Maya show? We're gonna offer them mad bud so that they'll let us smoke with them. We were gonna go toke some bouges afterwards behind the mall.
Greg: Dude. Really?
Gringle: Yeah, bro. Shit's gonna be mad tight.
Greg: You sound like an idiot.
Chris: So did that gringle go to the grimecore concert he was ranting and raving about?
Greg: No. I think he had to go to the hospital because he ate too much tobacco.
Chris: I won't ask.
