Archive for category Speedcore
Speedcore is a hybrid form of techno and hardcore that is characterised by a very high BPM and features violent or aggressive themes. The genre rarely goes under 300 BPM, the speed of the beats being the very definition of the genre.
Speedcore has never gained any real popular following, being given a kind of cult status, but it is relatively popular in The Netherlands and Germany.
Speedcore contains very highly distorted bass hits and snares, with horror movie or similar samples being played in the background often time stretched to give a scream a more drawn out, sadistic feel.
