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.
If we're talking deathcore then suicide silence all the way. But half of these aren't deathcore.
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

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]
There a thousand times better then suicide silence there only number one because of there one album march to the black crown that's it

3Chelsea Grin
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
This is a real death core band. The majority of the other bands are labeled as metal core, death metal, hard core or soft core and many other types of bands. Don't you people look on the actual band web pages for details. These bands are being miss labeled.

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

How is Carnifex so low down, its below Bullet For My Valentine for gods sake (they are nothing like deathcore)
Musical genius! All of their albums are brutal and technical and puts all other bands to shame! Favorite deathcore band

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.
This band is one of the most intense deathcore bands of all time
[newest]
Awesome should be enough

6All 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.
How are ASP not on here? Every album (before their most recent) is a work of art! Go check em out kids

7Despised Icon
How is this band only one above alesana? This band helped create deathcore you people are dumb
They invented deathcore, they should be at number 1.
Pioneers of deathcore guys? They should get back together. Defiantly my favourite deathcore band up with suicide silence and job for a cowboy.
[newest]
2nd best Daethcore band behind Suicide Silence
More comments about Despised Icon

8Job 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!

9Impending 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
Heavy. Dark. No fluff. Straight to the point. They're "Christian" but one the best touring and live bands out there.
[newest]
I went to go listen to ID now - and I really like it!

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)
More comments about As Blood Runs Black

The Contenders

11Born Of Osiris
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
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!
I love these guys they need to be up higher at lest 2 or 3 please people try to listen to them.

12Infant 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
Quite simply, the most ball-crushingly brutal Deathcore it is humanly possible to create. Your brain will explode.

13Heaven 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.

14Oceano
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.
Brutal like chuck norris with diarrea

15Bring 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
First deathcore band that I heard and make me absolutely want to playing deathcore, they make deathcore full of art and grand
Bring me the horizon came with the new music arrangement which is this band could be the number 1 on the top ten list deathcore band! Keep the band up boos.

16Here 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

17Suffokate
Most negative upfront and real band

18Chimaira
Their bass rattled my bones at mayhem. Enough' said! M/

19Winds of Plague
Why the hell are they still down here? They need a higher spot

MetalFoREVer1228


20Rose Funeral

21Black Tongue
Brutal breakdowns and gutturals.

22The Faceless
Why is the faceless on here. This band is Tech Death, not Deathcore.
The faceless is better than more than half of these bands! Just listen to Leica and the ghost of a stranger! Akeldama was a masterpiece

23In Dying Arms
The most talented screamer in deathcore thus far.
Let's get them to the number one spot asap.
I like their screaming..

24I Killed the Prom Queen

25The Acacia Strain
The Acacia Strain are the heaviest and the best band ever. The fact that they're not, at the very least, number 5 is depressing. Anyone who hasn't heard them are missing out and get with the program.
How the hell is one of the best deathcore bands ever outside the top 25?!
Insanely heavy and brutal, they deserve to be in the top 5.

26A Skylit Drive

27Bleed From Within
One of the best of the list, absolutely better than Chelsea Grin or Suicide Silence.
Band fae larkyy.

Scots can still prove we still got balls and brutality!

28War From a Harlots Mouth
Just the hardest sound, best breakdowns, unique shouter!

29Emmure
Emmure... You can feel this dudes hate flow freely throughout a twisted depressively homicidal ambience this bands got going on... Plus these guys have real skill working with each other... I'm surprised these beasts aren't in the top ten
Definitely should be up in at least top 5.. I like bands like I killed the prom queen.. But deathcore.. List is a fraud...
Totally... Why suicide silence is # 1 is beyond me but I guess ignorance is bliss...

31I Set My Friends on Fire
ISMFOF has one of the amazing screamos I've ever heard.
There songs are hilarious in a good way and awesome.

Try listening there songs like Ravenous Ravenous Rhino and Things that Rhymes in Orange and also that Crank that Soulja Boy screamo cover.
Man their awesome!

32I Declare War
I don't know as far as musical talent, but they really know how to make brutal, honest, and amazing songs and albums. They're vocalist Jamie is so good and powerful it's crazy
Great band. As they burn alive is one of my favorite songs ever!
By far one of the heaviest deathcore bands I have seen live, flawless performance.

HOW CAN THOSE MASTERS BE ON 87?!

34Veil of Maya
Easily one of the best bands I have ever listened too the vocals are second only too those of Mitch Lucker of Suicide Silence but the guitar is by far the best guitar I have ever heard and tge song Punisher is easily my favorite song.
Ok I'm a suicide silence fan and I thought these were they were the best death-core band but after listening to these they just blew me away and I was like WOAH ain't nobody got time for that! XDD

35Dance Gavin Dance
They aren't even close to death core.

36Motionless in White
These guys aren't deathcore, they're gothic metal, but they are probably one of the best modern metal bands I've heard and everyone looking for amazing metal should check them out.
They should be ranked higher!

37Chainsaw Disaster

38Lost Soul

39Parkway Drive
Just listen and enjoy! Amazing guys!

40We Butter the Bread With Butter
Best weirdest German Pop Deathcore band ever, their new stuff is going to be amazing.
Didn't think I would like them.. But they are pretty awesome
Just underrated! The vocals are just sick

41Make Them Suffer

They are incredible. The well is heavy as absolute hell. They have some sick breakdowns too.

42Silverstein
This is an awesome band, not deathcore though. But still everyone should check this band out!

43Betraying the Martyrs
This band should at least me in the top 5!

46Upon a Burning Body
Best deathcore band ever! One of my favorites. Amazing breakdowns, kick ass guitar solos, better pig squealing than any other deathcore bands, meaningful lyrics. They should be #1 on this list.

mp74ify

They are the most realist band I know. This band should be #1 on here since they're band who know what a real solo is
This band is awesome, my favorite of the genre :D

A great heavy slam band!

52King Conquer
