Best Deathcore Bands

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Animosity

One of the first and best deathcore bands. Animal was a masterpiece and probably the greatest deathcore album ever made along with Fused Together In Revolving Doors and The Price of Existence

Go listen to Terrorstorm, Tooth Grinder, and The Black Page. Try to tell me these guys aren't the best deathcore band. Leo Miller is hands down the most unique vocalist in deathcore history - ThisNameWasStolen

22Black 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

Deathcore is basically guttural vocals and brutal breakdowns. And you can't get anymore brutal than Black Tongue. As they release more music you will see them rise higher on this list.

These guys are great, definitely recommend you at least listen to a song or two on YouTube if you haven't heard them before

Most brutal deathcore band and I love the mix of doom/slam and deathcore, not too much of either, a perfect mix

23Shadow of the Colossus

More emotion than any other deathcore band (except maybe for Make Them Suffer) and better melodies and lyrics as well. Go listen to Beholder of Eyes, Insurgence, and The Dawning of a New Age and see for yourself - ThisNameWasStolen

More emotion in their music than any other deathcore band (except maybe Make Them Suffer) and better melodies and lyrics than any other in the genre as well - ThisNameWasStolen

24The ContortionistThe Contortionist is an American progressive metal band from Indianapolis, Indiana. Formed in 2007, the band consists of guitarists Robby Baca and Cameron Maynard, drummer Joey Baca, vocalist Mike Lessard, bassist Jordan Eberhardt, and keyboardist Eric Guenther.

At first I thought they weren't even close to deathcore, but they are, and they're really good too.

26Conducting From The Grave
27Rose Funeral

More death metal than deathcore on their recent album, but still an extraordinary band. #5 on my personal top 10 followed be suicide silence, whitechapel, chelsea grin, and job for a cowboy.

28Waking The Cadaver

These are no deathcore they are Slam, which in my opinion is better, so you need to check these guys out!

29Glass Casket

Friends with the lead vocalist; also a founder of this sub-genre along with despised icon and through the eyes of the dead, but not given the deserved credit

Adam is a better vocalist than Mitch
Dusty and Ian are better guitarists than Mark and Chris
Sid is a better bassist than Dan
Blake is a better drummer than Alex
Glass Casket is better than Suicide Silence (who are still good though)

Listen to In Between the sheets and Genesis before voting for anyone else

30In Dying Arms

The most talented screamer in deathcore thus far.

Let's get them to the number one spot asap.

I like their screaming..

Without a doubt one of the greatest bands ever!

31Here 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.

32The 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?!

This band needs more love, it is honestly one of the top tens, not 33, their lyrics are pretty well thought out and well executed.

25 what the hell

33Motionless 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.

Amazing band, but it's not deathcore. Sorry.

Incredible band. Deathcore... No

36Rings of Saturn

HOW ARE THESE GUYS ONLY 23!?!?!?! They are amazing, Ian Bearer is WAY better than Mitch Lutcher, who's band is number 1. Lucas Mann can play circles around any other guitarist here, and Aaron is a good drummer as well. When they aren't screwing with Guitar Pro they make awesome music, and no band has the sound they have.

Seized and devoured listen to it!

These guys are by far the best current Deathcore band with a progressive fast paced sound.

I hate to break anyone's heart, but a lot of their music is programmed.

37Betraying the Martyrs

This band should at least me in the top 5!

Why are they so low down? Betraying the Martyrs are AMAZING!

Are you kidding me! Why are these guys not pissing on suicide silence!?

Good band but not death core.

38Chainsaw Disaster
39Bleed From Within

One of the best of the list, absolutely better than Chelsea Grin or Suicide Silence.

Really good and underground band! They should be higher

Don't like colony but damnation is a sick song. Humanity was very Melodeath influenced, I'm sad to see they're going down the same path BMTH did. They were really good before Colony.
