The Hell Frontman Thinks That Metalcore Should “Just Fuck Off”

The Hell frontman Nails hit his caps lock key and let loose the following diatribe (via Metal Hammer) regarding the genre of metalcore:

“DEAR METALCORE,

JUST FUCK OFF.

I AM WRITING YOU THIS AS AN OPEN LETTER, NOT BECAUSE I AM TOO MUCH OF A PUSSY TO SAY IT TO YOUR FACE, BUT BECAUSE I COULDN’T FIND YOUR FUCKING ADDRESS IN THE YELLOW PAGES.

PLEASE STOP. NO ONE FUCKING CARES ANY MORE. IT’S DIFFICULT TO WORK OUT WHAT YOU REALLY WANT FROM ANYONE. I SAW A FEW METALCORE BANDS OVER THE SUMMER AND I’VE NEVER BEEN SO FUCKING FURIOUS IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. THESE GUYS GET UP ON STAGE, SHOUTING “WHICH OF YOU MOTHERFUCKERS IS READY FOR A GOOD FUCKING TIME”, AND THEN PROCEED TO SCREAM EVERY DETAIL OF EVERY ROMANTIC FAILURE THEY’VE EVER HAD. NO ONE WANTS TO HEAR IT MATE. THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO DO WANT TO HEAR IT ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE INTERESTED IN SHIT LIKE CRYING AND FLOWERS.

A TIP FROM THE TOP THOUGH, IT WOULD BE EASIER TO STOMACH YOUR OVERLY-SENTIMENTAL, GROTESQUE CIRCUS OF HEARTBREAK IF YOU WEREN’T SELLING T-SHIRTS TO PRE-TEENS THAT LOOK LIKE SOME KIND OF SWEARY, MISOGYNIST VERSION OF ADVENTURE TIME.

YOU’RE CONFUSED, METALCORE. IT’S ALMOST UPSETTING. TAKE ‘ALONE‘ BY FALLING IN REVERSE. IT’S CLASSIC METALCORE. VERSES ABOUT HOW YOU’RE SHAGGING MY HYPOTHETICAL WIFE, THEN A (BEAUTIFULLY SUNG) CHORUS ABOUT HOW YOU’RE FED UP OF BEING ALONE AND YOU MIGHT NOT MAKE IT HOME AND NO ONE’S ON THE PHONE AND DIAL TONE AND PAYDAY LOAN. JUST FUCK OFF.

SO METALCORE, TO AVOID FUTURE HEARTBREAK AND TO SPARE US ANY MORE METALCORE ALBUMS – STOP BEING SUCH A CUNT.

YOURS SINCERELY (AND WE ARE ALWAYS SINCERE),

NAILS

THE HELL

    i wonder if he designed their new shirt?

    while the hell’s take on metal is still in the vein of metalcore, they don’t sound like a cookie cutter metalcore band (like the shit he spells out about Falling In Reverse).

    on the other hands, their lyrics aren’t much better. i know they’re presented tongue in cheek but, these kids at the metalcore shows probably don’t hear it that way.

      It’s hard for me to take some guy in a metalcore band bitching about how stupid metalcore is. Especially since he calls himself Nails and his bands gimmick is always wearing bank robber bandanas.

  • mYstic headlock

    Who are you again?

  • Stereotypical Evil Archer

    What I want to know is why did this guy steal David Draiman’s broken keyboard?

    • Clown’s Alcoholic Father. You May Have Heard Of Me

      New Jack sold him an authentic match used keyboard

      • karlgrz

        New Jack should get way more credit than he does, props. He almost bled on me in Bridgeview years ago.

    • SFilthy

      It’s not broken. The caps lock obviously still works.

  • asamoah

    I DON4T LIKE PEOPLE WHO LEVE THEIR CAPS LOCK ON

  • Porpoise Orifice

    Idk man, flowers can be pretty fuckin metal; if Archspire were a flower, they’d be this one: http://home.howstuffworks.com/gardening/garden-design/10-most-unusual-flowers.htm#page=1

    And in other news, did you know dung beetles use star navigation to get back to their hole? Pretty sweet.

  • Going Normal

    Blimey! Someone must have peed on this tosser’s crumpet.

  • jrr

    “A TIP FROM THE TOP”

    Sure thing, pal.

  • SHOTGUNFACELIFT

    I never knew falling in reverse were Metalcore I always thought they were come kind of shitty faggot emo offspring.

    • nickygoods

      Damn my reply was literally summed up by you as I was zoning out typing it. Thanks for helping me realize that the 5 extra bucks I threw in for newer bud was worth it! I may be the only person on earth with an honest pot dealer.

      • nickygoods

        At 4:20 not even planned!!!!!!!!!!

      • SHOTGUNFACELIFT

        Haha +1

    • TheMediaProphet

      I came to say the same. I also did not know Failing In Reverse were metal core. I swear I thought they were this gen’s Good Charlotte.

      • Clown’s Alcoholic Father. You May Have Heard Of Me

        Good Charlotte actually sold records

  • nickygoods

    Damn! All this proves is that even a proper english metalhead can sound like an average American mouth breather. But I would like to have a good american swing at this statement and the statement of “metalcore’s” rep in general anywho. Metalcore is like taking iron maiden and integrity and making them fuck metalcore is most aptly defined by bands such as:unearth, throwdown, killswitch engage (with jesse you fucking wankers!) Parkway drive, as I lay dying, hatebreed, god forbid, and some fine ass classy old shadows fall. Now although feelings may be discussed at times during these recordings they do not suck. They are more about human emotion in general. Emo core is what we are kindly speaking of. This happens when you take 80s pop sensibility bend over in front of pop punk and allow underoath to film it, most commonly defined by bands such as: silverstein, hawthorne heights, underoath, atreyu, falling in reverse, and escape the fate. So enclosing FUCK OFF if you’ve got beef with metalcore as a whole! And ps there are such side genres of metal as emocore etc. So get used to it. Longest reply I will ever make again, coulda been much shorter.

      Bravo.

    For everybody’s enjoyment.

    They literally play the same style of music this guy is telling to fuck off. They might as well just be King 810, but with more bandanna’s , and goofy names.

    • TheMediaProphet

      I just watched that. I expected a lot better. That was 2014 nu-metal.

      I wish Snot would have made one more album.

      My balls, your chin.

      • nickygoods

        You dont want snot to reunite. Mikey is an AMAZING guitarist but I get a sense that you are an individual that still savors that unbeatable energy of “get some” and when I saw snot attempt to reunite in 08 with tommy vex on vox. You would not have approved. They even announced they were working on a new album at that time that never surfaced. For good reason im sure. Lynn strait= irreplaceable. Just ware out your copy of get some repeatedly!!!

      • Smokin’Joe

        Don’t for get Dobbs = irreplaceable.

      • Cyanidenailbomb

        Wow, Vext doing vocals for Snot would just be odd to me…very different styles there.

  • WURST

    Haha, this pussy listens to Falling In Reverse.

  • Clown’s Alcoholic Father. You May Have Heard Of Me

    This guy would have a point if he didn’t play in the lowest common denominator shit band The Hell

  • Surly

    Ah, I get it. These guys are like a SNL parody band…..

  • adamonfire

    When I think metalcore, I think Killswitch and Parkway Drive – this guy is insane in the membrane.

  • EyeOfEveryScorn

    This guy is like 4 years too late anyway.

  • Sniki

    “NO ONE FUCKING CARES ANY MORE. IT’S DIFFICULT TO WORK OUT WHAT YOU REALLY WANT FROM ANYONE.”

    So, it’s difficult to work, yet he still knows what every single person on this planet cares about. Awesome.

    • Sniki

      Also, I’m glad some guy/girl/thing I’ve never heard of has taken the time to tell me what I care about – I would’ve never known if it wasn’t for him/her/it.

  • frog

    Guys, this band is a parody act and this post was meant as a joke. I can’t believe people are taking this seriously all over the place – their songs are obviously meant to be a parody of metalcore, and I’ve never heard them before today.

  • TattooPanda

    Tell this faggot that Every Time I Die says Hi.

  • Stankinstien

    3 words, metal by numbers.
