If you strongly believe deathcore isn't worth a damn, well congratufuckinglations, you're officially a total tool who doesn't know what's good for him. Here's how the rest of the "I hate deathcore because I'm a wuss"-scenario plays out: soon you become the laughing stock of your friends (even the ones you made up), your loving mommy and daddy think you're a disgrace and kick your ass out of the house and eventually you end up being that weird guy in the subway who does headbanging tricks for a nickel. All this because you refused to listen to some hq deathcore shit... like Born Of Osiris' latest.

All exaggeration aside, the new Born Of Osiris album is probably the most forward-thinking deathcore album since, well, pretty much the dawn of fucking time. The Discovery is all things deathcore - i.e. mutilating br00tality - though served with a strong-tasting progressive and keyboard-driven sauce. The album shows a band giving in to their compulsive need to cram a fuckload of short-circuiting melodies in the listener's ears. The outcome is plain br00tal, be it in an intelligent way and without ever getting generic or repulsive. In fact, it's probably the tremendous amount of technicality and virtuosic skills along with the syncopated rhythms and uncountable progressive outbursts that are responsible for melting off your face. Either way, shit is tight.

A delightfully complicated and intense listening experience awaits you. Even if you were already familiar with the works of Born Of Osiris (brofist) this blistering album will still be an eye-opener. This six-piece band really stepped it up a couple of notches and made a huge improvement since 2009's slightly monotonous and rather cliché-ridden A Higher Place. God knows where they found it, but I'm really digging their new bag of devastating tricks.

In conclusion Born Of Osiris are hotter than a black leather couch in hell. You can either believe me or completely miss out on one of the best releases this year. Your choice, gay boys.

I dunno, there are bands like Ion Dissonance and protest The Hero being around for a while now

PTH is metalcore with progressive elements, and ID is more along the lines of math metal (or "djent" to some), which is a little more confined to a specific form of progressive metal.

Deathcore with progressive elements is a new creation as far as I know.

Ion Dissonance is Djent now? wtf? I feel weird now.... it has always being presented to me as deathcore (even by Thryce in his staff pick)
But yeah you're right about PTH.

Bit off-topic...but ID is (technical) deathcore + math metal, and math metal is essentially "djent".

It ain't your typical black and death metal anymore.

Might be a bit off topic but Arsonists Get All The Girls' Motherland is one of the better Progressive deathcore albums this year, for people who are interested its quite catchy.

Great album! I'm an old metal guy and I don't know what deathcore is and don't care. But this is fresh stuff, killer guitar. Sounds like metal to me!
