Hardcore Metal

  • Started in the 1970's in the U.S.A.
  • It's a very small genre but the bands still earn lots.
  • The songs and themes are often very controversial.
  • The music tends to be more rhythmic than melodic.
  • TRC - mainly performance and narrative videos. Diagteic sounds are used and there is lots of focus on the front man. Strobe and flashing lights, fast paced editing and aggressive facial expressions are included and close up camera shots are used to show this.
  • Gallows - performance videos, small venues used because they are an underground band. People in the crowd show the target audience that they are aiming for. The front man is topless showing off his tattoos. The footage included was filmed over one gig and might not necessarily of been from the song that the video is for.  Shaky camera movement shows the high energy involved , this is also backed up by the fast paced editing, this matches the pace and aggression of the song. Lots of stage prescience is also held by the band members.

  • Your Demise - Burnt Tongue - Performance and narrative music video (typical to the genre). Small crowd at their gig which reflects the size of the genre. A steadi-cam is also used with the lead singer to get some good close ups of him.
