It's not the first time I've looked for a well-known band that was deathcore or metalcore and they didn't exist on metallum.

It's kind of frustrating because I feel like the site limits itself to what it could really be... a true encyclopedia.

Please stop the discrimination against deathcore and metalcore bands.

There are a lot of bands that are missing (from both of those genres).

A Lot of well known bands like Fit for an Autopsy are more core than metal. Deathcore is a cross between hardcore and death metal music, a sub genre if you will. Most of the time if a band lacks the "metal riff" the band will be rejected. If you read the rules you'll see what I mean. You also have micro and fusion genres, hence why some bands have genres like "Blank/Blank" or "Blank with Blank influences." I will throw in some bands for more examples.

Vulvodynia is labeled as Deathcore/Brutal death metal on this site. Now i'm not like the mods on this site but they have the "metal riff" in their music. Again not an expert on this.

Infant Annihilator wasn't added until they released the Boy album. They are a tech deathcore. If you look at the old band appeals you can find their reason why they weren't on here.

Lorna Shore is a different story. Throughout their discography, there had been arguments and discussions galore. I'll use the most recent ep as an example. 3 track ep. It wasnt enough to get them accepted. Some compared it to IA's new album. But that was a 14 song long album.

All my examples are very vague i know, so just use the search function.

It's not discrimination, some bands within those sub-genres are more on the core side i.e. lean towards hardcore, which is a great genre itself but not a metal one.

Metalcore on the site - Killswitch Engage, All That Remains, I Killed the Prom Queen, Himsa etc
Metalcore rejected from the site - Parkway Drive, Asking Alexandria, Converge, Embrace the End etc

Deathcore on the site - Impending Doom, Despised Icon, Gutted With Broken Glass, Misericordiam etc
Deathcore rejected from the site - Suicide Silence, Those Who Endure, Fit For An Autopsy, Her Majesty etc

I'm not an admin, just offering some clarity on your question.
