Best Metalcore Albums


The Top TenXW

1Shadows Are Security - As I Lay Dying

Without a Doubt the definitive Metalcore sound that will stand the test of time. - SummonSkeletons

2Waking the Fallen - Avenged Sevenfold

Avenged Sevenfold make great songs as well as great albums but this album is up there on any list for Metalcore albums. One of their best albums yet.

3As Daylight Dies - Killswitch Engage

A classic Metalcore album with songs such as My Curse, This Fire Burns and Holy diver etc, easily one of the best.

Why the hell still not on the first position?

Probably best modern album of all time

4The Fall of Ideals - All That Remains

Talk about the bleeding obvious. All That Remains' masterpiece is immense riff after immense riff, blast best after blast beat, incredible solo after incredible solo, and every song is more memorable than the one before. The most talented band going around. Case closed!

5In Waves - Trivium

Although, not originally a Metalcore band, Trivium's In Waves is a great album for any Metalcore fan.

6Horizons - Parkway Drive
7An Ocean Between Us - As I Lay Dying

For me it's the best metalcore-album in history. It starts with a 1 minute intro leading perfectly into one of As I Lay Dying's best songs: "Nothing Left" (and it ends in a piano-play). Besides the album contains extremely awesome songs like "The Sound Of Truth", "Forsaken" (aw god that riff! ) or "An Ocean Between Us". And not only these highlights... I think all other songs are very good metalcore-songs, too. Literally like Sum41's Debut-Album-Title: "All Killer No Filler"! Some songs are heavy, some are more beautiful and calmer.
All in all the album is an impressive record with high variety and virtuosity. And in my opinion this is a perfect metalcore-album! - Flav

8The Oncoming Storm - Unearth
9Jane Doe - Converge

One of the best Metalcore albums out there, Jane Doe is a classic.

10Constellations - August Burns Red

The Contenders

11The End of Heartache - Killswitch Engage
12Ascendancy - Trivium

Trivium again. But this album is too good to leave out of any Metalcore list.

Better than In Waves, which for some reason didn't get me like this album did. I love every song on this record. Rain is my favourite track :l - Lem

13Zombie Ep - The Devil Wears Prada
14Colors - Between the Buried and Me
15Alaska - Between the Buried and Me
16Lullabies for the Dormant Mind - The Agonist
17Sounding the Seventh Trumpet - Avenged Sevenfold

This album is seriously underrated. It has a lot more punk influence than most Metalcore does today, and although it was recorded with a $2000 budget, it is definitely one of my favorite albums of all time - Lem

18Scream Aim Fire - Bullet for My Valentine
19Calculating Infinity - The Dillinger Escape Plan
20Wrath - Lamb of God
