Not to be confused with Hatecore.

Violencecore (sometimes incorrectly known as Hatecore) is an aesthetic that is the emotional opposite of Lovecore. It involves the embracing of taboo emotions such as hatred and anger, and topics like gore and violence.


Violencecore visuals depict hatred and vitriol, so colors like red and black are common color schemes in this aesthetic. Visuals can sometimes resemble DarkErrorcore or Devilcore - but it depends on the image and form of aggression being represented. Visuals can include, but are not limited to:

  • Angry facial expressions
  • Burning buildings
  • Gore and viscera
  • Angry dogs; barking
  • Violence; murder
  • Glitchy VHS


Various forms of hate have been embraced by practically all human societies, with certain types of hate being socially accepted and even encouraged, while others are deemed incredibly taboo. Various human cultures throughout history have embraced tribalism to some extent, and at times encouraged hatred of outsiders or those of a different race.

Many religious groups have also embraced hatred to some extent, deeming unbelievers to be demonic and deserving of death and hellfire. Powerful institutions have also been known to harbor a culture of hatred within their companies and government institutions, discriminating against individuals based on race, gender, or sexuality. In many modern societies, hatred is accepted when it comes to criminals or the homeless, or when it comes to those who harm children or animals. Among some vegetarians and animal rights activists, a level of hatred is embraced against those who eat meat or contribute to factory farming. Political tensions and disagreements can also lead to outbreaks of violence and division in a community, effectively reducing the rise of multiculturalism.


Violencecore fashion draws a lot of inspiration from a mix of both Punk and Bastardcore fashion, designed solely to provoke anger, hatred, and potential violence from people around them by being as offensive as possible. Violencecore fashion may also make heavy use of the gothic-rooted motif of using fake blood as an accessory of sorts.

Violencecore music is violent, either in lyrics or in the melody/genre itself. Typical violencecore genres include Rock, Metal, and Alternative - but other genres may also be included. Keep in mind that many violencecore songs discuss upsetting topics, such as abuse or self-harm, and that listeners should listen with discretion if they are sensitive to these topics.

Bloodcore is a sub-aesthetic of violencecore concentrating on pictures of bloody faces, teeth, and hands - usually centered around very strong feelings such as anger that provoked such violence from someone. It can be paralleled with Yandere, Devilcore, Goth, and even Pastel Goth aesthetics for content such as moodboards and playlists.
