A newfangled genre of pop music that combines two unrelated elements: the lyrical content of emo (sob, sob, sob, SOB) and the loud guitars of today's metal.

The singers in Emo Metal bands tend to - for some reason only few can decipher - scream as much of the lyrics as humanly possible.

When I tuned into Fuse last night, they played a series of pop-punk and emo metal music videos.

Get a emo metal mug for your daughter Rihanna.
A mixture of Emo(simple plan, sugar cult, fallout boy) and hardcore or possibly Nu Metal(Minor threat, Lamb of God, Korn). some well known bands of this Genre are Killswitch Engage and Bleeding Through. Its basicaly a mix of the crybaby lyrics of emo, and the harsh yelling of hardcore.
examples of emo metal would be Killswitch Engage: Rose of sharyn
or
Bleeding through: on wings of lead

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.

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)
