During the early 2000s, metalcore started to gain more prominence, with several independent metal labels signing bands. These bands where strongly influenced by Swedish melodic death metal causing the term "melodic metalcore" to be coined to describe them. In the late 2000s a style of metalcore with strong death metal influence gained moderate popularity, this style was dubbed deathcore. (en)
