1Asking Alexandria

I love the sound that this band is making.. They totally rock this world! They are so amazing.. Actually they are my idols.. Just keep it up! Stay cool..

2Bring Me the Horizon

All time best screamo band ever, the vocals of Oliver Sykes is just too hard to beat, especially in their album Count Your Blessings, and the song Pray For Plagues

Their singer must be the best screamer I've ever heard. And there's so much catchy riffs and everything! -

Awesome best band I ever heard I head the come down first and ever since I've been hooked. I love this band so much they are my new favorite band ever now keep making amazing songs guys xP!

Oli and his lisp are the key to becoming the greatest vocalist ever

3Pierce The Veil

BEST SHOULD BE #1! I think they are the best band alive. They should not be #21. They are too good for that. Way to cool for 21. They are so hot. Each one of them. Overall They are a great band and need more concerts! Vic Fuentes has one of the most beautiful voices ever. Its so natural. They don't use an auto tune at all which is good. Listen to their music. They are the best.

The number one band that got me into rock even. Vic has the BEST voice out there. I don't care what others say he has such a beautiful voice that even makes a song that isn't so great SUPER AWESOME! I always melt every time I hear his voice.
I'm in love with him!

Pierce the veil is the best they deserve number 1 spot! But asking alexandria is competition for with them but pierce the veil will always come out on top for sure!

If members from nirvana and slayer think they're cool that means heck of a lot!

Just one word they are FANTASTIC

5Black Veil Brides

Black Veil Brides is one of my favorite bands ever! Their music is amazing, and means a lot to me because their music got me through so much although Andy is beautiful I love every band member, and I'm not just one of those girls that only listen to BVB because of Andys looks. BVB is an amazing band and I love all their songs

I like them because of andy 6 he has the greatest voice ever.. and also hot but I like the whole band too.. they should be number one

bvb forever! best band should be at number one lol I'm 12 and andy 6 is so sexy, but I don't like the band just for andy 6. I love bvb peace!

My perfect addiction

6Of Mice & Men

HOW ARE THESE GUYS SO LOW?!?! Austin is probably one of the best screamers I've ever heard and their breakdowns are amazing!

What the hell is of mice and men doing here the should be top 10 easy.

I'm not even sure how its possible this is so low. Of mice and men are seriously one of the best bands ever and should be in the top ten easily. Their songs have deep meanings and their just badass in every way possible.

Why is Mice and Men so low?!?!? They are so god!

7A Day to Remember

Best one out there. They combine the perfect amount of screaming to singing and play a lot of different types of stuff and are like no other band out there.

I love they're song "You be tails and I'll be sonic" It is assurably the most amazing song I've ever heard! ADTR IS AMAZING!

Jeremy McKinnon has got some real pipes. Homesick is just brilliant, but my favorite song has to be 2nd Sucks.

This is my all time favorite band! There are excellent breakdowns in every album and nearly every song. The sound in each album is pretty consistent with some minor changes here and there but it NEVER gets old! Stranded on a desert island, bringing their discography!

8Sleeping With Sirens

Just the most amazing band! You'd better listen to them or else there isn't any point in reading the list. Do it now remember it later is the best song ever!

I love SWS SO much! Kellin has the voice of an Angel. I love the whole band, to its entirety. The music they produce is amazing, just as simple as that. Sleeping with sirens is on my top 3 list of my favorite bands. Keep up the good work, boys, I love you all.

I went and saw them last night and they were amazing they should definitely be higher up than this! Kellin's voice is amazing.

They should be number 1

9Falling In Reverse

They are the best. The singer (Ronnie Radke) was singing in Escape The Fate before. He is now in Falling In Reverse, and I think that etf is nothing without him, I can tell that falling in reverse will be so popular, they have one album for now. An album named "The Drug In Me Is You" Ronnie's growl is amazing.

Falling In Reverse is epic. Ronnie is so sexy... And I mean seriously, he has the best voice ever and it just makes me feel so good. I love him, and this is the best band ever. If you want a truly inspiring band look at Falling In Reverse. You'll get hooked like I did,

My friend showed me Falling in Reverse when I was having a hard time, Ronnie's story and his new attitude about life brought me out of the darkness I had put myself in. Their music is inspiring, not to mention all of them are extremily sexy espescially their new bassist, Ron Falling in Reverse forever and always!

They have really good songs

10Suicide Silence

Suicide Silence is amazing beyond like words and that's why I can't finish this.

I am in love love love love with these guys! If you ever read this comment boys I will marry you!

I never liked there guys until recently, they are so damn amazing it's not even funny!

Suicide Silence is good, but they're Deathcore, not screamo.

The Contenders

11The Devil Wears Prada

Because they deserve the dead throne. No exceptions. No excuses. Mikey screams the pants off all these posers. Period.

They inspired me to scream. Mike heranica is the best ever, and hopefully one day my band will become as famous as there's

Still fly is the greatest cover to any song ever

They are very good there music video sailors prayer is kinda creepy but it's also funny at the same time

This band is so under rated, if you know good music then you know this band has PURE talent.

My all time favorite band I don't understand why no body likes them

Knives and pens m/ -nick mo

My favorite and they're really great, why they didn't on the top ten?

13Motionless In White

This band is amazing chris is the best singer. Chris tries to reach out to people to let them know their not alone in this world and to let them know its ok to be different. He respects the way you are but wont take crap from anyone even if they are trying to change him he doesn't let that effect him he starts himself and lives his life his way. That's just some reasons why this band is the best at what they do. I can't go a day without listening to them.

This band is amazing. All the guys are super sweet, and the songs that have, are ones you can really relate to. I think this band deserves to be number 1. Not just because they are my favorite band, but because they are a terrific band.

Motionless in white is just amazing, I really don't see why people would not like them, well besides the fact that they are different, but it's a good thing to be different like us. A lot of us are called freaks, and outcasts because we're singled out, for being different. So let the freak in you show because being like everyone else will get you no-where in this world

Motionless in white are an amazing band, they sing/scream about what its like to be an outcast, they have an amazing singer (chris motionless) Chris tries so hard to reach out to people to tell them they aren't alone, no matter what this world challenges you with you aren't alone in it, its ok to be different. You shouldn't give what others think, its only an opinion. Don't let people change who you are, don't let anything be forced upon you, especially religion. Everyone should listen to them. They are just AMAZING, there are no words for how amazing and life-changing they are!

This guys are a kick ass band. They should be higher on this list.

14August Burns Red

These guys rock. THey shouldn't be number 14. Best screamer and guit

Gotta love these guys. They are so technical, and never fail to impress with their depth of songwriting. They do not deserve to be this low on the list. Buy their Christmas album too, cause it's gonna rock.

There pretty epic not good enough for top ten but the shouldn't be 28th what

This is my favorite band in the whole world. Definitely should not be number 14. These guys are the absolute best, their music is beautiful as are the people who perform in it.

17We Came As Romans

I love WCAR and how they don't focus on the bad, negative things about the music but write about good things, not about hate.

These guys have it all! Screaming is great! Vocals kill! By far better than these top 10

I love this band, is my favorite, I wouldn't change it for any other cause no other band can compare to the talent We Came As Romans have, though their songs have helped get through a lot of difficult times... I just love them!

Their new songs rock!

18I See Stars

Check out their newest album Digital Renegade and you will be hooked. Zach Johnson has a phenomenal scream and Devin Oliver has some solid clean vocals.

Seriously, listen to Zach Johnsons screams. They feel/sound so powerful and full of raw emotion. I see stars is for sure in my top 5 favourite bands of all time. When I saw them, they had an absolutely amazing live show, and we're just so enjoyable, and the electronics add so much fun, but it's also hardcore enough to have a pretty great mosh pit. All around great band

Great overall band, not for everybody, but they have a great style for anyone who likes dubstep type music, or synthcore. Amazing vocals and great screams. This band also has some variety, which you don't see in a lot of bands. Id put I See Stars in the top 5!

Have you heard devin and andrew in the new demons album that dubstep is awesome listen to when I say jump you say how high rock on I see stars

19Memphis May Fire

Matty Mullins is a epic singer this band is off the chain

This has to be my favorite band at the moment. it has a great mix of vocals and screaming. I used to love AA, but check em out on youtube live. they suck. : what a let down...

Matty definitely has one of the most recognizable voices out there, be it screams or singing. Heavy and melodic music, pure awesome

WHY ARE THEY 19?!?!?! They need to be in the top ten they are amazing!

V10 Comments

They are just as good live as they are on recording! Plus their instrumentals are unique and well-structured.

Way too low! Most of the bands rated above them have 2 or 3 tracks per album that are respectable. You can and should listen to Silverstein straight through. Every song has raw emotion, harmonic vocals, melodic riffs, solos and above all the sickest and cleanest screaming voice in the music industry.

This band changed my life. Whenever I feel depressed or anxious I listen to this band. Shane told has an amazing voice and he is a great songwriter. I know all of silverstein's songs and they are amazing live when I saw them at warped tour this year. Shane told is my idol

One of the few band that combines real post hardcore music with intelligent lyrics. And they have one of the best screamer of the world as singer!
