Moshing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Moshing, also known early on as "slamdancing", is a style of dance whose participants push or slam into each other, usually while moving in circle. It is most associated with "aggressive" music genres, such as hardcore punk, rock and heavy metal. It is primarily done to live music, although it can be done to recorded music.[1]

Variations of moshing exist, and can be done alone as well as in groups. Moshing usually happens in a "pit" (sometimes called a mosh pit or "circle pit") and is intended to be energetic not hurtful. Offshoots are "pogoing" (mostly jumping up and down) and the more extreme wall of death, and are typically done in an area in the center of the crowd, generally closer to the stage.

While moshing is seen as a form of positive feedback or expression of enjoyment,[1][2] it has also drawn criticism over dangerous excesses occurring in offshoots. Injuries have been reported in mosh pits, and a few deaths have occurred in a "Wall of Death" an offshoot that developed when slamdancing was adopted at metal shows from its origin at punk shows. However, it is generally agreed that moshers are not trying to harm one another,[1] and that they follow an unwritten "moshing etiquette".[3][4][5][6]

Deathcore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Deathcore is an extreme metal fusion genre that combines sounds and characteristics of death metal with sounds and characteristics of metalcore, hardcore punk, or both.[1][2][3][4][5] It is defined by death metal riffs, blast beats and use of metalcore breakdowns.[6][7] Deathcore seems to have most prominence within the southwestern United States, especially Arizona and inland southern California (most notably the Coachella Valley), which are home to many notable bands and various festivals.[8][9][10][11]

Gutteral growls ranging within either highly low vocal pitches or harshly shrieked pitches are common,[6][12] while clean vocals are extremely rare and only heard in rare times of certain songs. Some of the growl techniques deathcore vocalists used have been described as pig squeals.[13][14][15][16][17] Deathcore is defined by hardcore punk-stylized breakdowns, blast beats and death metal riffs.[18][6] Like in other extreme metal fusion genres, deathcore guitarists down-tune their guitars to give their music a heavier sound, most play in drop B or drop A tuning. Some deathcore bands may also sometimes use death metal guitar solos as well.[18][19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26]

The term deathcore originated in the mid-1990s; in 1996, Nick Terry of Terrorizer magazine wrote: "We're probably going to settle on the term deathcore to describe the likes of Earth Crisis (as well as the more NYHC-ish but still as Deathly Merauder)."[27] In spite of this, Antagony[28] and Despised Icon are considered to be the pioneers of deathcore.[29][30] However, the band Despised Icon have rejected the label.[31]
