The many unacountable people who are the male and female offspring of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
. These people ride black horses, listen to heavy metal and rock and goth music, they ride the night and answer only to the Metal Inquisition
. They ride through and burn chav villages and towns, leaving nothing in their wake. Male members are known as riders, female members are known as Angels Of Death.
The Riders of the Apocalypse charged in, destroying the village as they went, killing all who stood in their way
With it's roots stretching back some 20 years, today's more popular metal strain, metal-core, is a blend of two different genres, hardcore punk and thrash metal. The ratio of the blend is not defined or regulated and can sometimes rely on the particular band or fans to categorise the music. Metalcore bands such as Chimaira, for instance, rarely use clean, melodic vocals in their tracks, as opposed to groups like killswitch engage who regularly include a more melodic approach through the chorus sections. The latter approach is often attacked by fans of 'classic metal' for not being true to the game, how-ever, others simply see it as an evolutionary path and the bands in question exercising their right to make the style of music they feel comfortable with. Lyrically, the metalcore scene typically revolves around feelings of inner strength, determination, rejection, unity, personal loss and anti-authoratirianism.
