What is Thrashcore Music?
Thrashcore Music is sometimes referred to as fastcore, and is essentially hardcore punk sped up a bit. It emerged in the 1980’s and the songs are shorter than some of the epics which were around at the time, typically about rebellion and antimilitarianism. The trouble is that all of the groups within these genres and sub genres have to do something to distinguish themselves from the other genres and sub genres, and thrashcore groups typically played everything as fast as possible, radicalizing the original innovations of hardcore.
Representative Thrashcore Musicians
Thrashcore groups have names like Doom and Dead Kennedys, Dropdead and Cryptic Slaughter, in fact, I think they just try to have as gruesome sounding names as possible.
Well, it’s certainly fast isn’t it?
