Its all that crappy music they play on Uranium and Headbangers ball. It has annoying guitars and annoying-er voices.
Atreyu, Avenged Sevenfold
A non existent genre of music
It is physically and musically IMPOSSIBLE to mix Emo and Metal
No mater what you think, this does not exist.
emotive hardcore (yes it falls within the realms of punk-rock... that is to say D.I.Y. punk rock) cannot be mixed with metal because of the totally different ethos that surrounds the two.
boy 1 in bad metalcore/grind t-shirt - "that atreyu are proper emo "metal""
boy 2 in nice braid /texas is the reason /hot water music /quicksand /dag nasty t-shirt - "oh, fuck off would you? thats just bad metal"
It's probably not Metal or Emo.
Atreyu fan: ATREYU IS THE BEST EMO "METAL" BAND!
Someone who knows anything about Emo or Metal: Uhh...
There is no term in existance. The two genres of music are mutually exclusive of each other. Metal revels in sex, drugs, violence and death. Emo on the other had cringes and cries in a corner at such ideas.
It's either Metal or Emo, not both.
You are thinking of PostHardcore, or just plain EMO, you fucking idiot!
Dude: Fuck I love SLAYER!
Emo: Umm...why do they have to sing about such evil things and like it? Why can't Emo "Metal"have some kick ass music like this but without the evil and violence? It makes me want to cry...(whines)
Dude: Because, pussy, there is no such thing! No one in their right mind would even think about that bullshit! Get the fuck out of my McDonalds...
(Kicks the shit out of the emo loser)
As we all know, this is just a contradictio interminis meaning that the substantif itself excludes the adjective
Because metal is supposed to have texts about the end of the world, the devil, death and decay, and be happy about all off this.
Emo just cry by even thinking about this stuff, and are never happy.
Birth is always painful, Decaying in the womb trapped within this body
A bleeding human tomb gutted bitch lies dead emptied of the child
chewing on the cords its life line to this world afterbirth is flowing
The stench is overwhelming
My body, growing stronger, my pain turns to torture
Severing its bloodline
A butchered infant carcass
Meat from the unborn, the freshest kills
Chopped up children bathing in blood
Contoured and festering I rot in disgust
Re-generation of my body
Mother ripped apart
Smashing in her face
My knife cutting holes, fucking her remains
Esophogus carved out
Bile oozing from punctures in your liver
Riping meat within
Chewing in intestine
Bladder spurting urine, sight of defecation now grow infection
The child ripped to shreads
Drinking its excretions
Zombification ejaculation over mutilation
On the Mothers body hacked into pieces
The sludges from my cock gives her life once again
Sewing the remains of the child deep within her
Reborn through evil
My torture known throughout Hell
Heed to his calling, the demons await my next kill
Carnage is my fetish
Body cavities scraped of guts
Brains seeping from cracks as my axe continues to hack
Just imagine this for an Emo crowd ... Emo "metal" should be related to this if it would exist ...
Emo "metal" is most commonly referred to as Screamo or Post-Hardcore.
It is a blend of guitar "riffs" usually written in a minor key to give a strong emotional feeling, heavy screaming vocals, and beautiful (sometimes harmonized) melodic vocal patterns, all intricately orchestrated to sound beautifully dark, usually melodic, and always catchy. Emo-Metal is what happens when metal bands get tired of being poor and want to make money. It is essentially metal's attempt at entering the mainstream.(and uranium hardly ever plays anything remotely close to emo-metal.)Bands, such as UNDERoath or Beloved(R.I.P), have perfected the style with others closely following their lead.
Examples of Emo "metal" include
UNDERoath, Beloved, alexisonfire, Blindside(somewhat), Chevelle(somewhat), Dead Poetic, Emery, Every Time I Die (the new stuff), From Autumn to Ashes, Haste the Day(the new stuff), Poison the Well(one of the pioneers), Protest the Hero, The Refused(definitely a pioneer), Saosin, Thrice(the older stuff).

So there... It Does Exist. And F*** YOU!!! If you say otherwise.
A kind of heavy metal music that is much heavier than anything up to date. Typically it goes on at tempos not slower than 210 - 220 Bpm with ultra distorted guitars tuned at least 3 tones downwards (6th string at G#) pounding complicated sixteenth note riffs on the first four frets of the two last strings, the bassist usually plays all in 32nd notes in double-slapping fashion and is usually tuned even lower (6th string as much as the E 1 octave downwards) doubled by a synth wich plays in unison 2 octaves below, the bassists also tend to use very large speakers (18 to 45 inches) driven by two or more tube amps plugged in series (the output of one in the input of the other for added power) those said amps are no less than 2500 watts in power. The drums are simply huge, they span at least four bass drums (two doubles), in the case of more bass drums it is not uncommon that the drummer is assisted by additionnal drummers usually one by pair of double bass drum. The additional drummers pass the entire gig lying on the floor with a pedal in each feet and hand. Sometimes, if the set asks for it, these additional drummers are assigned to operate an additional snare with their mouth, also this serves the purpose of making them concentrate more on their set since their mouth is filled with the snare drum stick and they cannot talk or complain. The same Additionnal drummer principle goes for snares and toms. The main drummer is to operate no more than 24 (two times the number of apos...more...
