Who Said Metalcore Sucks

From the words of Alex Webster from Cannibal Corpse :

"A lot of the metalcore bands are pretty good. I think they have enough of an element of death metal to them that they've helped attract fans to the death metal scene."
If the guy is right, then metalcore might be one of the best things that happened to Death Metal in a while. I never saw things this way, at least not for all subgenres of Death Metal, even if at a closer look it might be possible, even obvious. So go out there, listen to some good metalcore - like Lamb of God, As I Lay Dying or Sonic Syndicate to name just a few bands - and give the guys some credit, some of them are excellent musicians.
