When combined with DeathMetal, metalcore usually transforms into {{Deathcore}}, but the 2010s have also brought "Entombedcore" (a common colloquialism, but there is no definitive name for the sound at this point), which fuses the more metallic side of hardcore with Swedish death metal (NOT Gothenburg; the distinction is important) and crust punk (sometimes also powerviolence and/or black metal, depending on the band) to create an angry, dirty, and abrasive form of the genre that has gained a fair bit of popularity as of late; prominent practitioners include Trap Them, Nails, Xibalba, and All Pigs Must Die.[[note]]Trap Them actually existed as early as 2001 and could probably be considered an UrExample of the sound, but they didn't really grow famous until the late 2000s-early 2010s, which was around when Entombedcore started to become a thing.[[/note]] It should be noted that most of these bands are rarely called "metalcore" (mainly due to the term's negative connotations) and the bands are, for the most part, involved in the grindcore, crust punk, sludge and/or powerviolence scenes, rather than the modern metalcore scene. Similarly connected is "slamcore" (another colloquialism), which started to become a small but growing trend in the mid-10s; it is characterized by a mixture of slam death metal riffing and breakdowns with significant elements of beatdown hardcore. Notable acts in this movement include No Zodiac, Acranius, and Dysentery (circa ''Fragments''); while it is strictly underground, it is starting to gain some traction in both death metal and hardcore circles and thus bears mentioning. It should also be noted that it is entirely separate from slammy deathcore and should therefore not be confused with acts like Ingested, Waking the Cadaver, or Vulvodynia.

The 2010s have also brought a new, or rather "[[{{Pun}} nu]]" variation called "Nu-metalcore" (like entombedcore, there's no official name and this merely a colloquialism based on the natural conclusion). As the title would suggest, it's a combination of {{nu metal}} and metalcore. Basically the base of the music is metalcore, while aspects of nu metal - which can range anywhere from rapping, downtuned riffs, turntables, angsty lyrics, and use of electronica - are added onto it. While mixing the two together is OlderThanTheyThink, it generally got it's footing in 2012 when Music/{{Issues}} released their debut EP ''Black Diamonds'', though Music/{{Emmure}} also integrated nu metal into their sound with ''Felony'' three years earlier. Others followed suit and started gaining attention, such as Of Mice & Men, Cane Hill, Attila, Stray From the Path, Dangerkids, Sylar and From Ashes to New. Reception to this has been mixed; some view it as a new innovation in the saturated field of the genre, while others are turned off by it because metalcore's popularity was attributed to people growing sick of nu metal. It's important to know that the genre is still emerging and as a result it is still mostly underground, which isn't helped by the negative connotations that both ends of the fusion hold with the metal community. Issues, Of Mice & Men, Emmure, and Attila are the only major success stories of the sub-genre, though some have gained ground such as Cane Hill, Dangerkids, Sylar, Stray From the Path, and From Ashes to New. That said, it's easily more commercially viable than entombedcore. Like vanilla nu metal, many bands labeled nu-metalcore don't sound much like each other, because bands draw from a wide variety of varying influences depending on the band in question. Naturally this leads to {{Fan Nickname}}s such as "Linkin Park-core" and "Slipknot-core". This, combined with the fact that some fans are still repulsed by the label, makes classifying them tricky.
