Subgenres

Lustcore

Lustcore, as the name suggests, is a Devilcore subgenre that revolves around the sin known as lust. It brings up the lecherous kinds of topics, often including cold-heartedness of its' followers. Not as much about bearing hatred for others and presenting some kind of violent or unruly behavior, but about being confident and carnally insatiable.

Visuals

Lustcore often has photos that include text with a VHS/vintage feel. Neon signs are also seen, similar to Stripcore. You may see images depicting people dressed in promiscuous outfits with devil horns. Cherries and wine are also commonly shown, as such delicacies are aphrodisiacs, or foods that increase sex drive. Snakes are included in Lustcore to show a sense of sin and promiscuity. Visually, Lustcore is very sensual, private, and all about sexual desire.
