Sound: something like the bastard child of emo and metalcore.
Image: Clashing and vibrant colors and patterns with a sometimes cartoonish overtone. Logos of Crossover Grime bands share a similar motif and can be recognized easily when compared.
Etymology: "Crossover," referring to the bridge between emo and metal + "grime," referring to blatant musical similarities it shares with grimecore.
Greg: I was in Hot Topic the other day and all the shirts there are marked by the staple of Crossover Grime bands, that bright orange logo in strange font on purple a purple background, with a picture of like a fucking rabbit. I don't see the appeal.
Sound: similar to djent and deathcore, but as with emo, punk, goth, 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.
