Metalcore is:

A) What happens when emo kids realize that crying and feeling sorry for themselves only gets them suicidal myspace whores for girlfriends.

B) Loved by the dudes who played football in high school but didn't listen to Nelly.

C) Brutaltastic.

D) A combination of metal (think Metallica) and new hardcore (think anyone under 17 wearing a tight black T-shirt, with dyed black hair and black plugs in their ears).

E) All of the above.

The correct answer is E).

Massachusetts metalcore band Unearth has been performing since 1998 and claims to make Black Sabbath "seem quaint." Unearth satisfies a craving for metal-hardcore fusion with the generic hardcore roar of frontman Trevor Phipps, standard metal guitar parts and even some backing vocals. Catch them this week at Darkside.
