From wiki;


Mathcore (also known as technical metalcore, progressive metalcore, or noisecore) is a rhythmically complex and dissonant style of metalcore. Mathcore has its roots in bands like Converge,[1] Botch,[2][3] and the Dillinger Escape Plan.[4] The term mathcore is suggested by analogy with math rock. Both math rock and mathcore make use of unusual time signatures. Math rock groups such as Slint, Don Caballero, Shellac, and Drive Like Jehu have some influence on mathcore, though mathcore is more closely related to extreme metal. Prominent mathcore groups have been associated with grindcore.

Weird, i've always described bands like Dillinger Escape Plan as "fucked up carnival music". Mr Bungle was big on that crazy clown music. I guess i'll have to correct myself now to refer to it as "Fucked Up Carnival Music-core".

Never got into Mudvayne so I have no opinion on them.

I saw Dillinger Escape Plan open up for SOAD and I fucking hated them. No core involved, just shit!

Wiki article - couldn't it just be put simply - Progressive Metal?
