Not sure it's dead and not sure there are more players than listeners. But I'm completely convinced that each band gets its own sub-genre.
War metal? Porncore? Brutal death? Slam death? Someone's pulling the piss now. The running gag has spread and now everyone's on board. As much as I get a giggle out of it, it does border on the absurd.
FWIW, I think "warcore" has a far better ring to it.......I'm off to start a new genre.
