Quite the misnomer, since it actually stands for "hardcore emotional hardcore." Sometimes referred to as emo-core, but can easily be confused as many people refer to anything that has screaming in the song as emo-core. Most easily identified by the hardcore build-up in a song, where it starts off very soft and increases in intensity until it ends in a soul shattering cacophony of emotion and passion.
Non-Objective Portrait of Karma by Circle Takes the Square is a great example of a hardcore emo song, as is Cuts Like Drugs by Hoover.
