Power Violence is a subgenre of Thrashcore, which is itself a fusion genre of Hardcore Punk and Thrash Metal that began in the late 1980s in the United States.


Musically, power violence is focused around speed, tempo changes, and abrupt breakdowns. It differs in the songwriting and production of Grindcore and are very short.

Confusion with Other GenresEdit

Power Violence is commonly confused with Grindcore, and Crossover Thrash. Grindcore has a more metallic influence than power violence, as does Crossover Thrash which holds the middle of the spectrum of Thrash Music by having a perfect marriage of Hardcore Punk and Heavy Metal.
