Yooooooosh! Nosmass here again!

ARE YOU READY TO MOSH!!???

ARE YOU READY TO MOSH!!???

I SAID….

ARE
YOU
READY
TO
MOOOOOOSH!??
BECAUSE HERE COMES THE BREAKDOWN……

 

about Breakdowns.

 

FIRST, A DEFINITION “Considered the most brutal section of a metal,metalcore,hardcore and deathcore song. The breakdown is characterized by a beat much slower than the main verses and chorus of a song, the primary ingredients being a steady beat from the drums (with lots of cymbal and sometimes double-bass) and a chugging rhythm from the guitar. ”

So basically its constant chugging and strumming of a single note. Sometimes with blast beats. I will admit, I tend to find a lot of them boring. But sometimes, I love them. So without any more delays

A BRUTAL ILLUSTRATION!!!

ps: I might take the liberty of putting the song at a point where there’s sufficient buildup to the breakdown.
They can sound pretty boring when there’s no build up. Sometimes they are,even with the build up. In some cases, a song that could have been epic is degraded to “MEH” status just because there is a breakdown. (This is why I like solos. They never make a song boring. In fact, they do the exact opposite….!! But we’ll talk about that another day)

1) Before their eyes: Hell or High Water
2:40 minutes in

this one’s one of my favorites. You will know why in a few seconds


2) Betraying The Martyrs : Love Lost
3:08 minutes in

This sooooooooong!!!!!! SMASHES PUMPKINS

3) My Heart to Fear: The Witching Hour
3:04 minutes in

4) Phinehas Crowns
1:58 minutes in

These guys are good at combining both solos and breakdowns.


5) Asking Alexandria: closure
14 seconds in (yup!)

This song didn’t even wate anytime . IT OPENS WITH A BREAKDOWN.
I hardly listen to these guys, but the day I heard this song….man…

6) I, Valiance : Part 1-The Pillars of Ruin
3:45 Minutes In

Now THIS IS A BRUTAL BREAKDOWN!!


7) Haste the Day : When Everything Falls

Christan Metalcore Heavy weights opeining with one of the catchiest breakdowns I’ve had the pleasure of hearing.

8) NOCTURNAL BLOODLUST : Strike the Fact
1:53 Minutes in


Okay, I’m tired. With all these samples, I’m sure y’all get the Idea. So that concludes our BREAKDOWN ON BREAKDOWNS.
Happy MOSHING.
