METALCORE WORD-ASSOCIATION

AKA 6 DEGREES OF SHITTY METALCORE BAND NAMES

I think that the rules of the game will explain themseves.

TODAY'S CHALLENGE: Beneath The Sky >>> Scars Alive

1) BENEATH THE SKY - Metal/Hardcore (according to Myspace) from Cincinatti, Ohio:



2) BENEATH THE SILENCE - Metal/Hardcore (sez Myspace) from Christchurch, New Zealand:



3) BURY THE SILENCE - Metal/Hardcore/Metalcore (according to unsigned.com) from Bournemouth, UK:



4) BURY TOMORROW - Metal/Hardcore/Rock (Myspace) from Southampton, UK:



5) SCARS OF TOMORROW - Hardcore/Metal/Screamo (Myspace) from Orange County, CA:



6) SCARS ALIVE - Metal/Rock (Myspace) from Southern California:



Wow. That was fun. And relatively easy. Let's do it again soon, OK?

i bet they fought over who got to wear their beanies and who got to have their hoods up. "fuck you, i'm doing beanie and hood up"

also, i totally played a show with scars of tomorrow at the catalyst in santa cruz. bruuuuuuuutal.

To waht degree of sarcasm are you using the term "brutal"? I couldn't actually bring myself to listen to those guys after seeing their band photo...

PS next time i do one of these "metalcore word association" posts (which will be really soon), i think i'm going to lay down rules for scoring points in the game. Christian band? +20 points. Afflicted shirt? +5. 5 points per beanie, 5 per hood, 15 for a combo. Bury Tomorrow would be a relatively high scoring entry, with 2 hood/beanie combos, in addition to one hood and one beanie. Fuck, that's 40 points!
