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.

to:

* Woe of Tyrants: Some minor stylistic similarities plus a tendency to tour with core acts when they were active, but they were thrashy melodic death metal.

* Uphill Battle (also grindcore)



* Music/ThreeInchesOfBlood: The confusion comes from the dual vocalists. While switching between clean, punk styled vocals and harsh, growled and screamed vocals is common in metalcore, 3 Inches of Blood is very much a thrash-power metal band with little to no similarities to metalcore outside of common thrash elements. Furthermore, while one of their vocalists does use similar screams to some metalcore bands, their other vocalist uses a [[Music/JudasPriest Halfordesque]] screech that's far more in line with thrash metal, speed metal and PowerMetal.

Metalcore began life as a blending between thrash metal and hardcore punk, and was used to describe bands such as [[DirtyRottenImbeciles D.R.I.]], S.O.D., and Music/SuicidalTendencies in the 1980's, however the term changed its meaning in the 1990's to "metallic hardcore", and the genre metalcore originally defined became known as "crossover thrash". This newer "wave" of metalcore included bands such as Integrity, Earth Crisis and Converge. By the end of the nineties, metalcore had evolved into "melodic metalcore", which slowly grew in popularity until the mid-2000s, when it was a big mainstream draw. In fact, today, metalcore is the most commercially popular form of metal.
