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.

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
Bleeding through: on wings of lead
