The Top Ten

1
Suicide Silence
Bulle For My Valentine isn't even Deathcore! Suicide Silence is the greatest of all this bands, the sound great, they lyrics are excelent.
DEATHCORE PEOPLE! WE ARE TALKING DEATHCORE, WHICH ELIMINATES AND BAND WHO HAS ANY SINGING!
Suicide silence is amazing, Mitch is the best screamer out there
If we're talking deathcore then suicide silence all the way. But half of these aren't deathcore.
[Newest]There were no deathcore before Suicide Silence!

2Whitechapel
They are the top deathcore.. Listen to their music..
I swear you will like 'em..
Whitechapel, suicide silence, lamb of god..
They are the greatest band of my world..

They're the best Deathcore band to walk the earth. Suicide Silence are great too, but I feel like their fan base just skyrocketed after Mitch died and it was all a bunch of scene girls who thought he looked hot, felt sorry for him because he had a wife and a 5 yr old girl and didn't give a damn about the music he made. They just liked Mitch for his looks ad not his prowess as a deathcore vocalist. No disrespect intended for SS whatsoever, and I'm in fact looking forward to their new album with Eddie Hermida (on Nuclear Bast! ), but Whitechapel are just a far better band. Phil has an amazingly powerful and brutal voice and knows how to pump up a crowd at a show, and whitechapel's fans aren't a bunch of chicks that think Phil looks hot. They're the undisputed best deathcore band.

Whitechapel is amazing! Very technical and amazing I don't know who put some of these bands on this list all shall perish should be higher carnifex also one of my favorites I prefer the black dahlia murder and all the bands I listed over suicide silence! My personal opinion! This world is ours and we won't stand still
Infinitude sets thy vision toward the deep
Civilization will fall by the hand of all disease
Banished of all life and awoken from the grave! Whitechapel this is exile!
[Newest]I cannot go a day without shredding some Whitechapel! Should be number one!

3Chelsea Grin
Chelsea Grin is THE deathcore band. For me, they can rival with Suicide Silence. I don't know how Whitechapel got higher. Because all Phil can do is lows. His highs sucks. As for Alex, he can do some of the highest highs, and lowest lows I have ever heard; and remember he fry screams, and I as an artist in metal, it's hard to pull off amazing fry screams like Alex. Mitch WAS good at screaming, I mean, listen to The Disease (from the Cleansing) to O.C.D. (from the Black Crown). He WAS amazing. But the older he got his screams became less powerful and not as blood curdling. And the whole band didn't seem like a deathcore band anymore. They just sounded like a heavy metal band with screaming instead of singing. And I am NOT just saying that because Jonathan Davis featured with them in Witness the Addiction. Just, Mitch wasn't as good as he used to be, BUT it's like Tupac all over again. Kinda like how Eminem is the best at rapping, and you may not like him, but he is, people won't say he is because Tupac died at the height of his career. Everyone says Mitch is the best because he died when he was most famous. Alex still has a whole life ahead of him to become who he is truly destined to be. Anybody who truly listens to deathcore agrees Alex is as much as a legend as Mitch if not more legendary. We can ALL agree My Damnation had some of the best screaming known to METAL, let alone deathcore. Alex's scream in My Damnation was good and unique enough to rival against Chester Bennington. Although Chester isn't deathcore, he still screams better than most deathcore matalists. And that truly says a lot if Alex's scream can rival to THAT. Although, he didn't do that great on Ashes to Ashes, he has an exception, he had his jaw broke, and he can still scream better than most people. Chelsea Grin is overall the best deathcore band ever, and sense I don't see Suicide Silence being moved down from one anytime soon, then Chelsea Grin at LEAST deserves the #2 spot on this list. because they have heavier riffs and instrumental and have higher and lower screams than most people. People, including myself, WISH they could be as good as Chelsea Grin. CG should be at least at two.
Chelsea Grin is the best Deathcore band. Their songs are brutal and some are meaningful. When I listen to them my anger and all of my hate are disappearing. I feel very bad that I discovered them two months ago. I should've been with them since they started to play. To everyone who doesn't know CG Go to youtube and just listen and you'll know why I and other people like them.
One word - Amazing
Great Band, Ridiculously Heavy Breakdowns, Brutal Screaming, Great Riffs
[Newest]Just a brilliant band all together real technical in there old stuff and a bit experimental in there newer stuff but damn that new drummer is phenomenal and new album is similar to there older stuff, all time best deathcore band

4Carnifex
Carnifex are an awesome band. Just listen to Lie to My Face, In Coalesce With Filth and Faith (this song has some brutal breakdowns) or Until I Feel Nothing. Scott Lewis is an awesome vocalist and Shawn Cameron is an awesome drummer. As previously stated, Carnifex are an awesome band.

MetalFoREVer1228

Carnifex has talent. Far more talent than any other band (aside from All Shall Perish, which is also a very talented band. Carnifex is just better. ) in this top 10. Suicide Silence, Whitechapel, Chelsea Grin, Despised Icon... All talentless excuses for deathcore bands.
How is Carnifex so low down, its below Bullet For My Valentine for gods sake (they are nothing like deathcore)

5Thy Art Is Murder
This is the band that go me into Deathcore back in 2008 with their Infinite Death E.P. I didn't really understand it but what I kept was absolutely amazing to me. They made me feel like smashing stuff up and still, even today, I maintain to have that feeling every time I hear these guys. Top 3 at least.
These are actually amazing, "Hate" is such a brutal album. They deserve so much more recognition. Look up Reign of Darkness on Youtube, and you'll see what I mean.
I think that is the best "deathcore" ( I don't like use this definition) band. They're amazing and so technical. Chelsea grin are better than TAIM!?
[Newest]I think the band is better than Suicide Silence and others...

6Despised Icon
Pioneers of deathcore guys? They should get back together. Defiantly my favourite deathcore band up with suicide silence and job for a cowboy.
They recently reunited :) back together and ready to kick some more ass
They invented deathcore, they should be at number 1.
How is this band only one above alesana? This band helped create deathcore you people are dumb

7All Shall Perish
All Shall Perish is absolutely amazing! Every album is a piece of art! Screw the guy that said their last album isn't good. It is great!
Incredible guitar work with meaningful lyrics.
ASP is an amazing band. Their songs are so different from each other and each album has a complete style that's all its own within the genre. Eddie Hermida is also one of the best singers in Deathcore, but he sadly moved to Suicide Silence. He does great work with ASP though! Definitely my favorite.
[Newest]These guys even actually sound better than any other known deathcore bands here.

8Impending Doom
Very amazing and underrated band!
Maybe people won, t like it because it has got christian messages but you should admit that this band is very underrated deathcore band
Hear "Murderer" "For The Wicked"(my favourite song for them) "Deceiver"

nooreldeen

Dark, very low more growling than screaming at least on there newer stuff. awesome. Yes they are Christian. SO WHAT! I have never heard another deathcore band that I enjoy as much as impending doom
Impending Doom : for me Impending Doom is the best band. because the shout. growl and scream they have high vocal pitch and clear voice not like other the band just only a death to death core the behavior and characteristic. while perform so blurd voice.

Example : murderer, doomsday, silence the oppropesors, deceiver and nailed dead risen ( passion of the christ )
[Newest]Impending doom is deathcore

9Job for a Cowboy
IS this even a question? Deathcore is a mix between death metal and hardcore. This band is the only one on this damn list that is more death metal then hardcore. And seriously? Bring me the horizon? Bullet for my valentine?
Only band on the list yet that does a death metal and hardcore mix. But they have still left out the band that was the first known to mix these two... Dying fetus.
Totally awesome! My favorite deathcore band so far!

10As Blood Runs Black
The best breakdowns ever (EVER) I dare anyone to get breakdowns as half as good as those guys just listen to, strife (chug chug), My Fears Have Become Phobias
To the moron beneath me that said there are no original members from "Allegiance" to "Instict" - Have you heard of this magical new website called Google? If you had, you would've known that your statement is completely wrong. Don't disrespect Lech like that, man..
THE BEST DEATHCORE BAND EVERR even though what makes me sad is they have one album only (allegiance) the new album doesn't have any members of (allegiance)
[Newest]Why are these guys not pissing on suicide silence... I guess ignorance is bliss...

The Contenders

11Born Of Osiris
How is this band only on 18? This band is much better than Suicide Silence. Born of Osiris have awesome Guitarists and the Keyboardist is awesome too. They deserve to be on Number 1!
One of my favorite deathcore bands insane vocals I wish I had the vocals Ronnie Canizaro has and guitar is amazing and bass Danny de roach is a mad bassist these guys should be number one
The Discovery is the best deathcore album ever recorded. it has proven that deathcore can be taken very seriously.
[Newest]Definitely stays in top 10

12Oceano
Oceano and winds of plague are the last in this list? I can't bear to see it. Vote for them people! They're too awesome to be so low in rankings.

MetalFoREVer1228

This band is mean, angry, and the music reflects that. Oceano is number one on my list.

13Infant Annihilator
Almost overwhelmingly brutal. Great vocals, inhuman drumming, awesome sweeps and monstrously, skull-crushingly heavy breakdowns. Seriously, listen to just one of their songs and you'll be ready to smash a chair over somebodies face.
Fast, intense, brutal lyrics. They deserve to be in the top ten
I can't decide a favorite, but this band deserves the top 10. Although they were only a project they're sound is amazing. Dan Watson is a amazing vocalist, Eddie Pickard is a epic guitarist, and Aaron Kitcher's drumming is insane and the double base is so fast that you'd think he used a machine, but it was pure skill. For only one 16 track album and a couple of singles, this band owns and is seriously brutal. Deserves to be up there.
[Newest]The most brutal thing I've ever heard! - I am totally in love with this band, and hope to hear much more from them in the future.

14Heaven Shall Burn
Believe what you will, Suicide Silence isn't the best of 'em.

I prefer Heaven Shall Burn's live performances over other deathcore bands'. Marcus' vocals are much more chaotic, and the guitars don't frequent around open strings because the riffs make them heavy.
Iconoclast and Antigone are awesome Albums. They have the lyrics, the sound and the voice to make them one of the greatest bands out there.
I LOVE Endzeit, anyone reading this should listen to it.
Underrated band is underrated.

15Winds of Plague
Decimate the weak is fantastic. the bands look has nothing on their music!
Why the hell are they still down here? They need a higher spot

MetalFoREVer1228

Winds of plague must be in top 10

16Bring Me the Horizon
I can't even believe there are nerds who think that alesana, bullet for my valentine and asking alexandria are deathcore bands! Laugh out loud
Alesana is hardcore-punk
Asking Alexandria is Hardcore-screamo
Bullet for My Valentine is Metalcore-emo
This band at one point was alright. When Oliver screams especially for Diamonds aren't forever, that song is just a mess his screams are awful, they aren't even close to being deathcore, well not anymore... That was only Count your blessings. The only album that was pretty good was There is a hell but overall I don't know how they even got to be in this list
First deathcore band that I heard and make me absolutely want to playing deathcore, they make deathcore full of art and grand
[Newest]Count your blessings is just a brutal album and I advice everyone to check that out this is my favourite band so... yes check them out (the old stuff if you are searching for deathcore)

17Here Comes The Kraken
Most technically advanced, complex, and talented deathcore band out there. Their guitar work is top notch. Listen to "Confessions of what I've done", "Don't Fail Me Darko", and "From the Deepest Darkness" and you'll see what I mean.
This is top band

18Suffokate
Suffokate are one of my favourite bands, purely becuase they have brutal music, Ricky and Matt have incredible voices and they are just plain awesome!
Most negative upfront and real band

19Chimaira
Their bass rattled my bones at mayhem. Enough' said! M/

20Black Tongue
These guys have some of the heaviest breakdowns I've ever heard and I've listened to almost every single band on this list. The only bands I think that could contend to the heaviness are The Acacia Strain and The Red Chord
These guys are great, definitely recommend you at least listen to a song or two on YouTube if you haven't heard them before
Brutal breakdowns and gutturals.
