I've seen/heard a lot of people talking about what constitutes metalcore and what constitutes thrash music. (And of course what is NU Metal, Heavy Metal, Rock, etc) People are always trying to classify music and bands into certain specific categories.
Until I heard someone call Trivium Metalcore, and then heard another person bitch at them saying they're not Metalcore, I would have simply classified them as Thrash.
So due to my apparent ignorance on how to classify music into genre's, what do you guys (or gals) think makes something Metalcore VS. Thrash? The screaming? Because honestly, Trivium for example, sounds Thrash to me, with screaming on top.
The fine print:
I'm not trying to start a pissing contest here where everyone is gonna get pissed and bitch over the internet. The purpose of this discussion is simply to state your OPINION of what characteristics of songs/bands would place them into which category, and why. So please, if you're a douche and can't do anything but tell other people what idiots you think they are because their opinion differs from yours, do us all a favor and just don't bother posting.
