Greatest Christian Metalcore Bands

The metalcore is a fusion between extreme metal and hardcore punk. Many of the metalcore bands are Christian. What do you think is the best?

The Top TenXW

1August Burns Red

Man, this band is the most openly christian band in this whole world. They even shout the name of Jesus, God, Holy Spirit, or they even pray for the crowds after their concerts and they would even cheer me up. As I Lay Dying just plays christian music that's all. They are not too open. But abr is.

They inspires me so much every time I see them. They give you so many positive messages and give you hope. My emo friend got over his troubles after listening to the song "Composure" and "Meddler". Abr can change so many people's lives. If abr is reading this, I wanna tell thank you so much for giving me stronger faith and changing my friend

An extraordinary band, they are very talented. Creativity of them seem to have no end, their songs are the amazing and charming. I like listening to August Burns Red, but I miss a clean vocals on some songs. They, however, are not limited to just listen Constellations that we were impressed. His later projects are also great. We can say that they are one of today's best bands.

Their songs are a mix of heavy melodic music and Christian value based lyrics and it's just a perfect mixture of this that makes their songs so powerful and spirit filled. Their songs just SCREAM! Out JESUS to the whole world which I've never seen in any other Christian band.

2As I Lay Dying

Hard to say whether this band is truly Christian. From what I know, they professed the Christian faith openly in the past. They called themselves Christians. But honestly, I have my doubts. Currently, the singer is arrested, leaving the band on hiatus, and he revealed he became an atheist. For those who do not believe, look at the lyrics of some songs, like "This Who We Are"; it may seem that they are not practitioners of Christianity, but I think they had a different view on religion, unusual way of interpreting and expressing their faith. All indications are that the remaining players will continue to make music without bringing Christian references in his compositions. There was a change. But we must know that they were a Christian band. The statements of the singer about his atheism concern the change he suffered later. Despite the controversy, we must consider the As I Lay Dying a Christian metalcore band. Only giving the lyrics we can draw clearer conclusions. The ...more

I don't know how to say how much this band influenced my life in good way. Their music is so inspiring to better yourself, and it helps you to find out your way in life. After listening of As I Lay Dying and Still Remains I have become better person and it helps me to feel closer to God

All the memebers here have great christian faith, and the power of G*d. God bless you all! :D.
Actually, TDWP and ABR are really awesome too but I like this band better

Not a Christian band. They said so.

3The Devil Wears Prada

I don't really listen to any Christian bands other than The Devil Wears Prada and I only actually listen to them because of A Day To Remember, but, yeah, THEY'RE AWESOME!

I Love The DEvil Wears Prada.! They Are Really Awesome. - ravicupcake

The Devil Wears Prada are in my opinion the best metalcore band out there but a little un-original

This band is the best metal core Christian band and inspire me

Probably THE most well known Christian metalcore band out there and for good reason! Had one of the most talented clean vocalists in the Metalcore Scene and has well written songs, music and lyrics wise!

Come on! It's Underoath. Even though they aren't necessarily a Christian band right now, they've made plenty of songs during their time.

Underoath set the scene for Christian metalcore and metalcore in general more then any other of the bands on the list

These guys were one of my first Metalcore bands other than Demon Hunter and I still love them to this day!

5Haste the Day

Haste the Day -When everything Falls.. I think its #1myself.. Although the others are nice also this is my favorite band although I did not think it was a Christian band when I first herd it.

This is a great band with great melodies and magnificent choruses. Their songs are incredible. I just think that the vocals could be improved, but they are great! All of them work often bring excellent choruses and fantastic break downs... I love them

Truly an epic band.I listened to every one of there albums for months at a time before I eventually settled on Dreamer and Pressure The Hinges.
I love this band!

6Oh, Sleeper

This band is definitely my favorite metalcore bands out there. Every one of their songs has a deeper meaning behind them. Like son of the morning and the finisher. At first I didn't get either of the songs songs until I looked it up and it blew me away. I am so proud of this band I can tell you listen to any one of theirs songs and you will like it! Check me out they are sick!

Love this band, Children of Fire is one song you must hear before you die

7For Today

My favorite of all time. Met Mattie Montgomery at a show and watching him pray with every individual fan had me in tears. He and the rest of the band are True inspirations and they speak truth to troubled youth. They have shown me through god that I am not useless and I have a purpose

Amazing musically, and amazing lyrically. They always challenge me in my walk with God, and their music is always encouraging, and always uplifting the Lord. They are the best.

One of the best Christian Metalcore bands I've ever heard before. I saw them in concert and the lead vocalist preached out to the fans. It was a great experience.

Awesome songs based on true Bible stories! Music rocks!

a great tune from 'em is "I Used to Hate Cell Phones, Now I Hate Car Accidents". When I heard it for first time, I knew they were a great metalcore band! - rock2metal

17Blessed by a Broken Heart
18Sleeping Giant

I've never seen them live, but I've watched them on YouTube countless times. Tommy is an amazing man of faith and pure love for people. He loves Jesus so much, and it is shown in praise dancing, bowing, and full outpour at every show. This band is thick with the Holy Spirit and never fail to give praises.

19My Heart to Fear

These guys have amazing and technical breakdowns

They are very good with there instruments
