The Top TenXW

1The Devil Wears PradaThe Devil Wears Prada is an American metalcore band from Dayton, Ohio, formed in 2005. It consists of members Mike Hranica, Jeremy DePoyster, Andy Trick, and Daniel Williams.

Man I've been a Christian for as long as I can remember and I would always listen to regular screamo but then I heard of Christian screamo and I got pumped whe I heard about The Devil Wears Prada I love them Praise the lord!

I believe that The Devil Wears Prada is the best Christian rock/screamo band for sure. They are all very talented musicians and they use their talent to share their faith and put a positive message out there through music that a lot of people listen to. Melting faces for Jesus!

The Devil Wears Prada is the best for sure. All of their band members are extremely talented, and perform great music together. Their drummer uses the double bass to keep in beat with the rhythm guitar, which has a great effect. Plus, the clean vocalasit makes great choruses aside from the screaming. The Devil Wears Prada belongs at the top without a doubt, forget Skillet.

I've listened to every single band on here, and The Devil Wears Prada are by far the best. They've had the biggest impact on my life out of all these bands. And all religion aside, they've produced 2 of my top 10 favorite albums of all time. Great music, great message.

2SkilletSkillet is an American Christian rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996 and based in the United States.

THE BEST OF THE BEST, they have their own style and their music is easy listening

try this song=awake and alive, rebirthing, monster, hero, one real thing, under my skin and live free or let me die, and you will love this band

Skillet is an awesome sounding band. I just love the sound they have. I do think that they need some more screamo in their songs though. I think other than that they sound awesome though. I also like that they have a woman singer in the band too. They are defiantly one of my favorite bands.

Usually when I hear Christian music it's in a choir so that's why I didn't know this band was Christian band until a few weeks ago. One of the reasons I figured this out was because I actually started to think about the lyrics in their songs. This band is one of my favorite bands of all time and Hero is my favorite song from them. 10/10 - Jerry_Bob

Skillet is the best! I love them so much. They are unique, they are catchy, they are amazing. Their songs are so original and unforgettable!

Just listen to Breathe in to me or Already over by them... they rocks... - skt

Listen to everything on their "Until We Have Faces" album. Also, "Fight Inside" is amazing. I have all of their songs. They are my inspiration as a drummer and they deserve much more fame than they have. LISTEN TO THEM! - Skater

These guys are really awesome. My favorite album of theirs is probably until we have faces. I like their songs feed the machine and hymn for the missing (the first and last song on the album).

Why isn't disciple on this list?

PURE. SKILL. I thank God for this band

5August Burns RedAugust Burns Red is an American metalcore band from Manheim, Pennsylvania. Formed in 2003, the group began their first performances while a majority of the members were attending their senior year of high school, and soon began playing shows around Lancaster, before being signed to CI Records. Afterwards, ...read more.

They inspire the struggles and lives of Christians. They seed great courage and power to all of us. The lyrics also give peace to non-Christians too. This band is one of the most unique Christian bands out there. There are many Christian bands for Christians. But this band is a band for both worldly people and christian people

, why is august burns red so low? This band has great lyrical themes and this band has awesome members.
Songs you should check out: white washed, meddler, cutting the ties, composure, truth of a liar, redemption, crusades, mariana's trench, internal canon, and empire.
WHY IS SKILLET SCREAMO? Well, the guitarist and the drummer in skillet sucks.

Hands down the best music and message I have heard in a while. They have their own sound and it makes you appreciate them more when you hear each little part of the song, kind of like norma jean, certain parts you hear and that is what makes them norma jean and brings a smile to your face.

They are an amazing band I love them they are number one I just love them there music helped me out through all my struggles I sealed with like depression and they are like just the best they should be number 1 on here for sure love them!

6Underoath

This band helped make me the vocalist I am today and I know that after my first love committed suicide I wouldn't be alive today if it had not been for "Casting Such a Thin Shadow" and "To Whom it May Concern". Hands down though, "Some Will Seek Forgiveness, Other's Escape" gave me a new hope for my faith. One of the leading bands in Christian metal/screamo/experimental music. This band should be in the top 10 for sure.

Underoath is a band that has so much meaning to each and every song. It was the first screamo band I ever listened to. You can feel the power in each in every lyric spoken. The feature that makes this band so unique is that they strive to change lives through their music; whether it be through rekindling a faith for God, or acknowledging the corruption of the world which can leave us oblivious and enslaved. This band has changed my life.

Under oath is real an amazing band. They get me through a lot and they truly are AMAZING. While I wouldn't call them totally scream,. I mean most of their songs do scream, but lots of words are sung instead of screamed.

Underoath and August Burns Red should be on the top

7Flyleaf

Flyleaf saved my life! If Lacey had given up, I would've too along time ago. :/

Lacey is no longer in flyleaf but when she was this was my favorite band. I didn't like screaming music until I heard Lacey's testimony and then heard her scream. She's still my favorite singer and her screams are the BEST!

This is the bestest loudest band and if you think otherwise you are downright wrong! I LUV FLYLEAF

Flyleaf is an amazing band

8Third Day

These guys are awesome. I have seen them in concert and they are great live. I really like their songs otherside and lift up your face. They are upbeat songs, although I wouldn't consider them metal and screamo. By the way why isn't disciple on this list?

Third Day is amazing, but not screamo or anywhere close to it?

I love third day and Scott Stapp but how in the world do you place them before Disciple and Demon Hunter I mean come on it's Creed

I love This band so much Try the song Children of god And you will really like them.

9Blessthefall

Bless the fall is the best hardcore christian band in my opinion. They're sound is amazing. They're lyrics aren't all that great but they are so unique in the fact that not one of their songs sound the same, well with Beau some of their music does with Craig every sound had its own unique touch to it.

Blessthefall is in my opinion the best screamo band. First of all, they're actually screamo. Some of these bands, like Skillet, are loud sometimes... but aren't really screaming. Second of all, Blessthefall's lyrics are so powerful and inspiring, especially Rise Up from the album His Last Walk. These reasons are why Blessthefall should be ate the top of the list.

Blessthefall expands more than just anyother screamo band, it is a God blessed band that is percise in more in a musical and spiritual value that is far beyond the boundary of any band, I Absoulutley LOVE them...

That are the most awesome. Band ever. and. They sing for GOD and don't suck. should be number one.. Screams? OH HECK YEAH. -EMO KID FEMALE

10Disciple

Not only do these guys totally rock, they are genuine. Listening to The Scars Remain album pulled me back from the edge of oblivion. They are all about getting the message out that God loves broken people. They are probable the most real and unselfish band in Christian Rock today. Saw them Last night in New Castle PA as they invested their whole beings for Gods Glory and to advance His Kingdom in the hearts of young people!

Sadly, lots of Christian rock bands tend to jump to the mainstream scene and go secular. But Disciple is an exception, as they have been 20 YEARS rocking for Jesus - and saving souls for Him!. Kevin Young's testimony is just amazing and I love the fact that every line in their lyrics has a Bible verse explaining it. Totally recommendable as they don't only sound good but they MINISTRATE Jesus through their music. This is not normal to see in a rock band. They should be higher on this list.

These guys are insane. They are really connected with their fan base and have an amazing ministry and love for God. The are one of the few bands out there who have the rare combination of both AMAZING music and an incredible message. I STRONGLY recommend Disciple!

Disciple is the best Christian band I've heard in a very long time. The messages in their songs are so inspirational. They make me feel better about myself every time I listen to them!

The Contenders

11We Came As RomansWe Came as Romans (abbreviated as WCAR) is an American metalcore band from Troy, Michigan, formed in 2005. The band has gone through one name change and multiple lineup changes, and signed to Albany, New York label Equal Vision Records in 2009. We Came as Romans is managed by Outerloop Management and ...read more.

These guys are AMAZING! The Devil Wears Prada, Blessthefall, and We Came As Romans are my top Christian Screamo bands. We Came As Romans' "To Move On Is To Grow" is by far one of their godliest songs and my absolute favorite and I hope it will be yours too. WCAR are great at promoting God and doing what they love. God Bless You!

Ummm these guys aren't a Christian band sadly.

Their guitarist said himself that "there are Christian dudes and non Christian dudes in the band" and "just because our lyrics are positive doesn't mean their Christian"

I really enjoy their music... They one of the best bands to listen to.

12Pillar

Pillar are simply the best.. Last Goodbye and Holding On are my fauvorite songs by them.

I wonder how can people like Devil Wears Prada, that band is terrible. Skillet, 12 Stones and Pillar are the best hands down.

Flyleaf sucks.. Red is boring.. Skillet is always the same thing over and over..

13Demon Hunter

I'm not saying there the best, but there song Driving Nails is quite a life savor. I was in but to cut my own throat and I listened to that song and it changed the way I look at things.

One of the most vitriolic sounds in Christian Rock. They have got to be, hands down, the coolest vocals. Anything from The World is a Thorn, Extremist, or others would shame many bands you will see above.

Really good. I've beenn through so much stuff. Another to look up is brian welch. He is my role model. Stay christan...

14FamilyForce5

they are a great christain band that likes to have fun and enjoi being christains (soul glow activatior is the bomb)

Not exactly metal, but they scream a lot and their music is awesome, so they have my vote. I just wish they'd do harder stuff on this next album. - chimpy2000

Family Force 5 is just so good and their songs are so catchy that people have an amazing time dancing to them.

i love this group they're just so creative - anthonybecerra831

15For TodayFor Today is an American Christian metalcore band from Sioux City, Iowa, formed in 2005. They are currently signed to Nuclear Blast Records.

Amazing band. Look up psalm of son and seraphim they are really great songs but I would recommend all of their albums to you all

Devastator on their album Breaker is an insanely good song. Also recently they came out with a new ablum called Immortal which is my favorite album of theirs. These guys make intense songs with awesome lyrics and I'd recommend them to anybody.

"These guys have brought me closer to God more than anything else! These guys make me wanna evangalize 24/7! The Lord is totally glorified though this band!

16I am Terrified

This is my all time favorite band ever. I Am Terrified is an amazing Christian screamo band, possibly one of the best, if not THE best. Heaven Knocking, Hell Rising is my favorite song of theirs. All of their songs have such a powerful message in them. I hear people talk down about Christian screamo all the time, saying you never know what they're really saying and it's demonic and everything. God loves it when his children sing his praises, whether it's through screamo or a simple, soft toned song!

This band is actually a local band to me, I'm so glad to see how well known they have become over the years they are extremely talented and also have an amazing message in there songs.

Through my darkest times I stumbled upon I Am Terrified and fell in love

17Wolves at the Gate

This band should be at the number one spot! Not only are they a Christian Metalcore band, but they also evangelize most of the time during their concerts. Skillet and Red aren't even screamo bands.

Best band ever... If you like The Devil Wears Prada then you will love WATG. The song oh the depths and herald... Never mind the entire CD is amazing check them out

Saw them and the singer that plays guitar talked to me about God for at least 20 or 30 minutes & it was amazing he took that time out for me, God bless Wolves At The Gate.

These guys are all out! From the first song I loved them and my love grows fonder!

dawn's voice is amazing with a really wide range... They have some screamo elements(done by guitarist) in their first album... Powerful and anthemic... - RavenDimn2011

This music is AWESOME! You can rock out to some great music and feel uplifted at the same time. It's a true gift to hear this music.
