Blackened techno (alternatively blackened technocore) is a fusion of electronic music with extreme metal.


The genre was invented by the experimental electronic duo TsT S4K with their song "Brutal Blackened Technocore" off of the 225 Milkweed EP.  The genre incorperates electronic patterns, often at high speeds, and blast beats.  The vocals are often shrieked, similar to black metal vocalists.


Brutal techno is the same as blackened techo, except the vocals are growled as opposed to shrieking, similar to brutal death metal.
