2Suicide SilenceSuicide Silence is an American deathcore band from Riverside, California. Formed in 2002, the band has released four full-length studio albums, one EP and eleven music videos.

Lyrically, they have greatly matured from there early EP, to life lessons and they way to perceive the world
This band has turned into a seasoned veteran of Deathcore

Suicide Silence is one of the deathcore bands that got me into screaming and this type of music at age 9. Lyrically, they have improved the most out of any other band in this music genre. I believe this band should be at least in First, Second, Or Third.

extreme band, very much enjoyable.
beneath the sky is also good.

These guys.. Enough said glad Asking Alexandria came to be it showes UK still isn't done with their talent and still can compete, they earned my vote wish I woulda known about this sooner ;D this list isn't bad I don't agree with the order, but I'm just one vote.

Good balance between singing and screaming,
Killer riffs, brilliant breakdowns,
Heavy, but still melodic and catchy.
LOVE this band.

Plus, british accents are pretty rad.

They are amazing. I love Danny's scream. One of the EPIC screamo song they have. A Prophecy and A single moment of sincerity are one of them. I just love their breakdown.

I love them so much can't wait to see them in concert

The Devil Wears Prada is the greatest band alive! They have continued to make incredible music and changed their style among their different albums. They deserve to be #1.

7SlipknotSlipknot is a Heavy Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa. The band released their first album in 1999 and was well received by critics and fans. The group gained success after the release of their second studio album, "Iowa". ...read more.

I'm just going to vote for Slipknot because they're awesome. But seriously, "deathcore/metalcore/screamo" is such a broad and undefined classification that you might as well just put your favorite modern mainstream metal band on the list. METAL FANS: IT'S ALL METAL AND IT'S ALL GOOD.

Slipknot.. They are gods of nu metal. Just... Go and listen.

This list should be slipknot first and then suicide silence

I love there music!

Incorporate screaming into their songs well, with good use of both Matt Tuck and Jason James with screaming. Mean guitarists with both Matt Tuck and Michael Paget being able to play anything and everything, and then Michael 'Moose' Thomas tops it off with epic drumming that goes well in their songs.

I am so in love with them they are the best band ever

Best Metalcore band, Tears Don't Fall, Your Betrayal, Suffocating under Words of Sorrow.. ♡

Much metalcore-bands sound too whiny and cloned. there are few exceptions, but these are very very awesome bands, like as I lay dying, parkway drive, trivium and of course august burns red! - Flav

14WhitechapelWhitechapel is an American deathcore band from Knoxville, Tennessee. The band is named after the Whitechapel district in East London, England, referencing the series of murders committed by Jack the Ripper.

Phil Bozeman is an amazing vocalist. His screams are some of the coolest and most talented I've ever heard, and the band is very talented with amazing riffs and solos, by far the greatest deathcore band ever

Best band I have ever heard. Meaningful lyrics and Phil really knows how to bring out the emotion in all of his songs - hlmni

They are brilliant and these got me into screamo

No way Metallica is beating whitechapel

18The Architects

You're an idiot. It's a shame that other bands try at metalcore whilst architects exist. They're pure brilliance. But it make sense, when someone things manes like Metallica are Metalcore.

It's not THE Architects! THE Architects is a really annoying old rock band that sounds terrible and, by the way, they're NOT BRITISH!

Makes perfect sense coming from an A7X fan, those boys ruined the idea of Metalcore once the rev died.

19Motionless In White

My favorite metalcore band. They changed so much about my live. They are just amazing, so beautiful. Chris, Joshua, Angelo, Ryan, Devin, Ricky. They are all perfect. Ricky is one of my idols, and I remember when they played upcoming for AA in Copenhagen I met Ricky. He is so cute. I couldn't live without Rihanna, Evanescence or Motionless In White! Seriously.

I can see the pain in Chris Motionless songs, amazing Lyrics, YOU GOT TO LOVE THIS GUY, Seriously, this band is going to be the greatest thing since Misfits and Marylin Manson, they songs have a nice combo between industrial metal, screamo and old school goth and metal bands.

MIW are an amazing band who I can't go without listening to, they've progressed so much over the years and just keep getting better and better with every release

How the hell is Motionless behind Black Veil Brides? Motionless In White is 100% better than Black Veil Brides
