09:27 - Lokaeda Check the album "morbid fascination of death" by Carpathian Forest, there's a song with some sax on this one.
08:29 - Unhealer First use of sax in metal I can think of is on Pan.Thy.Monium albums. It had to be Swano.
08:10 - AngelofDeth you're right, a little weird to get used to but it works pretty dang well in that song. It needs to be stylized to metal rather than just sticking a weird 80s sax break down in the middle of a song
08:04 - AngelofDeth didnt know other bands were doing it too. Very strange. Ill check that out though
06:56 - hadriel Listen to Ihsahn's On the Shores and all of the doubts anyone would ever have about the sax being in metal will be squelched
05:28 - Unhealer It's because it's just awesome <3 It really fits metal.
05:13 - Zaphod Turisas, Whispered and Behemoth are just the ones that don't pull it off, there are plenty that do.

Generic metalcore with more breakdowns/chugging than usual and random synth and techno/dance parts placed in the song, often times used during breakdowns, so that they can be both moshed and danced to. Trancecore also served as a precursor to crabcore, which is basically trancecore, but with even more synth, extensive use of autotune, and the guitars reduced to nothing but chugging.
HORSE SHIT! this is no band, they are a boy-band targeted at high school kids that aren't popular and think they like metal when in reality they are just emo fucks. They are seriously a byproduct of marketing schemes and nothing more.
I listened to a couple of tracks off their new album though and I found it to be completely garbage. Sure the vocals are better and it is more mature and whatever but it is just sterile and boring and seem to be obsessed with bad 80s metal/hard-rock that I just really really dislike.
Some bands should just stick to being immature, banal and fun because they really don't know how to be serious.
