Best Deathcore Bandseamon911
The Top TenXW
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.
I have never seen such a good band before. Perfect deathcore band.V99 Comments
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. - MetalFoREVer1228
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!
They probably have the best variety in their sound. Probably the best singer as well.V40 Comments
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 ...more
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
Consistently the bestV45 Comments
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)
I respect the band but don't usually like it. They only had one good song and that was die without hope.V16 Comments
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!?
The very band that got me interested in deathcore. Their song Reign of Darkness is brutal as hell.V43 Comments
I thought I'd heard deathcore at its best until I heard Despised Icon. Tight, precise performances. Well-timed breakdowns, actual riffs, the occasional melodic solo, and the only band where pig squeals are implemented well. Plus their return has impressed me which is rare in this genre but not surprising from them seeing as they're innovators.
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 dumbV4 Comments
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!
The fact that Suicide Silence is ahead of these guys is just ridiculous. Eddie is 10x the vocalist Mitch ever was and if you don't believe me, go listen to Eradication, Wage Slaves, Black Gold Reign, and When Life Meant More
Incredible guitar work with meaningful lyrics.
Love all their songs!V10 Comments
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!
The Discovery is the best deathcore album ever recorded. it has proven that deathcore can be taken very seriously.
Honestly. BOO is too good to be called Deathcore, but if we are going to put them in this category, then they are definitely the best.
Not really deathcore, a bit on the first couple albums but much better than anyone on this listV22 Comments
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
Heavy. Dark. No fluff. Straight to the point. They're "Christian" but one the best touring and live bands out there.
Best deathcore band aroundV10 Comments
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.
Such a crazy band.V18 Comments
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
Their first album ("Allegiance") beats all deathcore bands album. Best BREAKDOWNS, double pedal speed, melodic guitar riffs but unfortunately they changed, but there are still a few great songs in their second and last album..
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..
This band has the "not boring breakdown" and very melodic deathcore.V10 Comments
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.
Their last release won it. Oceano deserves to be higher on this list.
Another great band.V7 Comments
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.
This was an awesome band their deathcores are good and their live performances are sounded just like the same as their studio recordings. VOTE. Hope they were at least number 10.V1 Comment
Decimate the weak is fantastic. the bands look has nothing on their music!
This band is so underrated, they deserve to be within the top 10 (at least), and where the he'll is make them suffer
Why the hell are they still down here? They need a higher spot - MetalFoREVer1228V2 Comments
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!
These guys aren't deathcore. They are death metal. - ryanrimmelV6 Comments
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
Count Your Blessings is their only fully deathcore album, and it was pretty darn good. Suicide Season is mainly metalcore but certain songs off that album could be considered partly deathcore, to an extent. You can hear the deathcore influence in songs like "Football Season Is Over" and "Sleep With One Eye Open". "Chelsea Smile" is a good one, but that's metalcore.
I love Bring Me The Horizon, but they are not deathcore. They are more Metalcore. Count your blessings was deathcore but all the other albums are not deathcore.
Terrible in all ways, not even comparable to any other metal band. Literally only went anywhere because scene girls think the vocalist is hot.V40 Comments
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!V1 Comment
I'd think this band was better if they wrote some good lyrics and if Fronz would cease his rapping. He does death growls that are pretty good only to have them ruined by that garbage rapping.
If Nu Deathcore was a thing. Attila is it. They mix some great Deathcore and Nu metal
They aren't even deathcore... Plus they suckV6 Comments
Intelligent and well thought out lyrics, vocals so brutal they make Phil Bozeman look like Miley Cyrus, insane guitars and bass and inhumanly fast drumming combine to create The Red Chord. Suicide Silence and Chelsea Grin can suck it. These guys are better than them in every aspect
They are the inventors of deathcore along with Despised Icon and Glass Casket. How are they so low?!
This band slays pretty much everything before it on the list really sad too see them at 67, them despised icon all shall perish should be top three.
To be honest there not deathcore. There metalcore. But there an anazing band. Winston's vocals kill it. I love them. There albums are amazing. There the right amount of heaviness. Not to soft and not heavy. Still think these guys should have at least bean 11 or 12. Even though not deathcoreV2 Comments
