Metalcore is a subgenre of music combining various elements of heavy metal music and hardcore punk. The name of it is a portmanteau of the names of the two genres. The term took on its current meaning in the mid-1990s, describing bands such as Earth CrisisDeadguy and Integrity.[3] The earliest of these groups, Integrity, began performing in 1988; some modern practitioners of the genre include Killswitch EngageUnderoathAll That RemainsAs I Lay Dying and The Devil Wears Prada.[4] Metalcore is distinguished from other punk metal fusions by its emphasis on breakdowns:[5] slower, intense passages conducive to moshing.[6] The genre has had a saturation of bands in the last five years. Sepultura has been credited to "lay the foundation" for the genre.[7]
