Electronicore or "synthcore" is a music genre that rose to prominence in the late 2000's, largely on social media websites such as myspace. The genre is largely a mix between Metalcore and various types of electronic music (usually trance, rave, or dubstep). It is characterized by the usual metalcore trademarks of harsh vocals and chugs but it's also coupled with auto-tuned or synthesized clean vocals, lots of breakdowns (probably to even more of an extant than metalcore) and electronic breaks usually in the bridge. Some of the bands have a relatively bad reputation amoung music critics (check the crabcore meme) but the scene has also produced many critically acclaimed and experimental bands that prove the genres worth.

Many bands have overlap with straight up Metalcore as well as Screamo, with the more genre bending ones also overlap with Crunkcore.
