I know there are several but I'm looking for a definitive list of all the genres that end in -core. Love 'em or hate 'em, they're here to stay. I'm asking here because r/metal and other metal forums aren't female or -core fan friendly.
There are really an infinite number of genres, you can create one yourself, imo. Some other recognizable -cores are electronicore, mathcore, prog metalcore, although they are arguably subgenres of metalcore. You will find a lot of punk-metalcore crossovers to make new core subgenres. r/metalcore might be a good place for you.
I'd say this is a fairly definitive list, plus some extras: List of hardcore punk subgenres.
However, new subgenres are always being created. Hope this helps!
These are all the metalcore subgenres, that came to my mind. I know I'm bit late, but if you see this post and still interested in more core genres, I might make additional lists for post-hardcore, screamo, deathcore and/or grindcore.
- Ambient Metalcore.
- Beatdown Metal.
- Blackened Metalcore.
- Brutal Metalcore (H8000/Edge Metal).
- Chaotic Hardcore.
- Crossover Thrash (sometimes considered as a core style, but more often thought as a punkier thrash metal).
- Dark Metalcore.
- Heavy Hardcore (It's not really a style of metalcore, but it is a core genre).
- Holy Terror (yes! It is a real genre :D).
- Melodic Metalcore.
- Metallic Hardcore (later variant. Earlier variant is just metal influenced punk).
- Nu Metalcore.
- Progressive Metalcore.
- Sludgecore (metalcore variant. Hardcore variant is commonly known as sludge punk).
- Southern Hardcore.
- Technical Hardcore.
- Thrash (Metal)core (Thrashcore term is more often used on aggressive, often high tempo, thrashy hardcore punk, with no relation to metal, which is why this genre is also often called as groove thrash and gothenthrash).
- Trancecore (minor difference from electronicore being bigger influence from trance music).
Sadcore is a prevalent enough music genre to warrant its own Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sadcore
Some of the ones that have not been mentioned here : Aliencore (rings of saturn), Emotive Hardcore, Post Hardcore (check out fugazi for the OG) theres even people starting to use the term Blackcore. Anyway, I'm here because I am creating a youtube playlist called "All the Cores" and I'm looking for other -core genres other than what I know of.
