Best Deathcore Bandseamon911
The Top Ten
They are the top deathcore.. Listen to their music..
I swear you will like 'em..
Whitechapel, suicide silence, lamb of god..
They are the greatest band of my world..
Their entire catalogue is great. They've consistently been at the top of the Deathcore genre since they released their first LP. I can't wait to hear their next album set to release after hearing the first single!
They're the best Deathcore band to walk the earth. Suicide Silence are great too, but I feel like their fan base just skyrocketed after Mitch died and it was all a bunch of scene girls who thought he looked hot, felt sorry for him because he had a wife and a 5 yr old girl and didn't give a damn about the music he made. They just liked Mitch for his looks ad not his prowess as a deathcore vocalist. No disrespect intended for SS whatsoever, and I'm in fact looking forward to their new album with Eddie Hermida (on Nuclear Bast! ), but Whitechapel are just a far better band. Phil has an amazingly powerful and brutal voice and knows how to pump up a crowd at a show, and whitechapel's fans aren't a bunch of chicks that think Phil looks hot. They're the undisputed best deathcore band. - MetalFoREVer1228
Whitechapel is amazing! Very technical and amazing I don't know who put some of these bands on this list all shall perish should be higher carnifex also one of my favorites I prefer the black dahlia murder and all the bands I listed over suicide silence! My personal opinion! This world is ours and we won't stand still
Infinitude sets thy vision toward the deep
Civilization will fall by the hand of all disease
Banished of all life and awoken from the grave! Whitechapel this is exile!
Bulle For My Valentine isn't even Deathcore! Suicide Silence is the greatest of all this bands, the sound great, they lyrics are excelent.
DEATHCORE PEOPLE! WE ARE TALKING DEATHCORE, WHICH ELIMINATES AND BAND WHO HAS ANY SINGING!
Suicide silence is amazing, Mitch is the best screamer out there
If we're talking deathcore then suicide silence all the way. But half of these aren't deathcore.
I recommend anybody listen to "the cleansing" album. it's awesome!V 122 Comments
Way better than a bunch of deathcore I've heard
Carnifex is without a doubt the best band on this list and they haven't released a bad song yet, no sell out crap just pure passion and anger poured into every meaningful song. If you are new to deathcore then check this band out and you'll be hooked. If you listen to their older material it's more edging toward death metal than core but not quite there.
Carnifex are an awesome band. Just listen to Lie to My Face, In Coalesce With Filth and Faith (this song has some brutal breakdowns) or Until I Feel Nothing. Scott Lewis is an awesome vocalist and Shawn Cameron is an awesome drummer. As previously stated, Carnifex are an awesome band. - MetalFoREVer1228
How is Carnifex so low down, its below Bullet For My Valentine for gods sake (they are nothing like deathcore)V 26 Comments
This is the band that go me into Deathcore back in 2008 with their Infinite Death E.P. I didn't really understand it but what I kept was absolutely amazing to me. They made me feel like smashing stuff up and still, even today, I maintain to have that feeling every time I hear these guys. Top 3 at least.
These are actually amazing, "Hate" is such a brutal album. They deserve so much more recognition. Look up Reign of Darkness on YouTube, and you'll see what I mean.
Found them with "Shadow of eternal sin" and "Holy War" and goth both albums "Holy War" and "Hate" I got speechless with their sound, IS AWESOME.V 57 Comments
Chelsea Grin is THE deathcore band. For me, they can rival with Suicide Silence. I don't know how Whitechapel got higher. Because all Phil can do is lows. His highs sucks. As for Alex, he can do some of the highest highs, and lowest lows I have ever heard; and remember he fry screams, and I as an artist in metal, it's hard to pull off amazing fry screams like Alex. Mitch WAS good at screaming, I mean, listen to The Disease (from the Cleansing) to O.C.D. (from the Black Crown). He WAS amazing. But the older he got his screams became less powerful and not as blood curdling. And the whole band didn't seem like a deathcore band anymore. They just sounded like a heavy metal band with screaming instead of singing. And I am NOT just saying that because Jonathan Davis featured with them in Witness the Addiction. Just, Mitch wasn't as good as he used to be, BUT it's like Tupac all over again. Kinda like how Eminem is the best at rapping, and you may not like him, but he is, people won't say he ...more
This is like a whole essay because I need to practice them and I thought what better than arguing about my favourite band so enjoy.
I listen and love a lot of different deathcore bands, but without a doubt my favourite is Chelsea grin. No other band can compete with the vocals of Alex and the shear evilness and brutality of some of there songs. There are other bands that come close like thy art is murder and infant annihilator. Infant annihilator may actually be more brutal and evil but I just despise their lyrics. Chelsea grin used to get a lot for their lyrics, as people thought they were dumb and not serious but since 2011 they have released songs with much more meaning as I shall discuss later.
Alex has the most incredible range of sound in all of METAL! He definitely has the highest of highs which you may find in the my damnation or desolation of Eden album and lows so low that it sounds like shao kahn from mortal kombat, which you will hear in their self titled Ep. ...more
You guys rock I can't wait I to see you in the flesh
Chelsea Grin is the best Deathcore band. Their songs are brutal and some are meaningful. When I listen to them my anger and all of my hate are disappearing. I feel very bad that I discovered them two months ago. I should've been with them since they started to play. To everyone who doesn't know CG Go to YouTube and just listen and you'll know why I and other people like them.V 56 Comments
I thought I'd heard deathcore at its best until I heard Despised Icon. Tight, precise performances. Well-timed breakdowns, actual riffs, the occasional melodic solo, and the only band where pig squeals are implemented well. Plus their return has impressed me which is rare in this genre but not surprising from them seeing as they're innovators.
They invented deathcore, they should be at number 1.
Pioneers of deathcore guys? They should get back together. Defiantly my favourite deathcore band up with suicide silence and job for a cowboy.
They recently reunited :) back together and ready to kick some more ass
How is this band only one above alesana? This band helped create deathcore you people are dumbV 5 Comments
The fact that Suicide Silence is ahead of these guys is just ridiculous. Eddie is 10x the vocalist Mitch ever was and if you don't believe me, go listen to Eradication, Wage Slaves, Black Gold Reign, and When Life Meant More
All Shall Perish is absolutely amazing! Every album is a piece of art! Screw the guy that said their last album isn't good. It is great!
Incredible guitar work with meaningful lyrics.
ASP is the best dither band of all time. Awaken the Dreamers is an album that never leaves my phone. I'm so stoked they're back together.V 14 Comments
Only band on this list who doesn't take itself seriously.
Best band everererere
Almost overwhelmingly brutal. Great vocals, inhuman drumming, awesome sweeps and monstrously, skull-crushingly heavy breakdowns. Seriously, listen to just one of their songs and you'll be ready to smash a chair over somebodies face.
Amazing vocals and best drummer ever.V 38 Comments
Listened to a few of Suicide Silence's songs. Uh, yeah not much talent there. If you want to hear badass Middle Eastern classical prog death core (thank you other person for classifying this band), listen to these beautiful songs: Abstract Art, The Takeover, Now Arise, Live Like I'm Real, Faces of Death, Two Worlds of Design/A Solution, Shaping the Masterpiece, and Regenerate.
How is this band only on 18? This band is much better than Suicide Silence. Born of Osiris have awesome Guitarists and the Keyboardist is awesome too. They deserve to be on Number 1!
The Discovery is the best deathcore album ever recorded. it has proven that deathcore can be taken very seriously.
Although Suicide Silence are great to listen to, these are definitely more talented musicians. It stands out as it is like a progressive deathcore bandV 27 Comments
Only good band of the genre
Very amazing and underrated band!
Maybe people won, t like it because it has got Christian messages but you should admit that this band is very underrated deathcore band
Hear "Murderer" "For The Wicked"(my favourite song for them) "Deceiver" - nooreldeen
Dark, very low more growling than screaming at least on there newer stuff. awesome. Yes they are Christian. SO WHAT! I have never heard another deathcore band that I enjoy as much as impending doom
Heavy. Dark. No fluff. Straight to the point. They're "Christian" but one the best touring and live bands out there.V 16 Comments
Best Band ever
The most Unique deathcore band, so unique I think they deserve their own genre
Sorry 23 guy, they got bumped down to 36... But I do agree that they are amazing and should be higher up on the list, and I sadly can't say top 10 because honestly I haven't listened to. I am not one who really cares much for vocals, I just like how the instrumentation of a song sounds, but these guys oddly enough caused me to actually get into caring for the lyrics, and vocals as a whole, which is kind of odd because now I can understand these kind of vocals better than clean vocals sometimes... kinda weird...
HOW ARE THESE GUYS ONLY 23!?!?!?! They are amazing, Ian Bearer is WAY better than Mitch Lutcher, who's band is number 1. Lucas Mann can play circles around any other guitarist here, and Aaron is a good drummer as well. When they aren't screwing with Guitar Pro they make awesome music, and no band has the sound they have.V 23 Comments
With the new Suicide Silence being absolutely terrible, these guys prove that deathcore is still alive! VOTE FOR THESE GUYS TO BE NUMBER 1! That, and it proves African Americans can be a part of the deathcore community! LOVE THESE GUYS!
Oceano and winds of plague are the last in this list? I can't bear to see it. Vote for them people! They're too awesome to be so low in rankings. - MetalFoREVer1228
These guys are extremely heavy. These guys are extremely brutal and is the heaviest put of all bands I had ever listened to. #1 on these guys.
This band is mean, angry, and the music reflects that. Oceano is number one on my list.V 11 Comments
At first I thought they weren't even close to deathcore, but they are, and they're really good too.
So dopeand technical as hell
Decimate the weak is fantastic. the bands look has nothing on their music!
This band is so underrated, they deserve to be within the top 10 (at least), and where the he'll is make them suffer
Why the hell are they still down here? They need a higher spot - MetalFoREVer1228
Winds of plague must be in top 10V 1 Comment
Intelligent and well thought out lyrics, vocals so brutal they make Phil Bozeman look like Miley Cyrus, insane guitars and bass and inhumanly fast drumming combine to create The Red Chord. Suicide Silence and Chelsea Grin can suck it. These guys are better than them in every aspect
They are the inventors of deathcore along with Despised Icon and Glass Casket. How are they so low?!
This band slays pretty much everything before it on the list really sad too see them at 67, them despised icon all shall perish should be top three.
Incredibly brutal and punishingly technical with awesome lyrics and vocals to top it off. This band is awesome
HOW IS THIS BAND AT NUMBER 175 AHH! This is the greatest addition to music in the past 20 years and the best progressive deathcore band I've listened to in a long time.
The best band on this list but not deathcore
Justin Lowe's guitarwork was the best part. And I'm not just saying that because he died - he honestly was an amazing guitarist. R.I.P. - ThatStrangeKid42
Actaully is dejtn metalcore band
Grat guys... Deathcore? No.
These guys were the original and their music is still far beyond many of the bands at the top of the list who drew Inspiration from animosity.
One of the first and best deathcore bands. Animal was a masterpiece and probably the greatest deathcore album ever made along with Fused Together In Revolving Doors and The Price of Existence
Go listen to Terrorstorm, Tooth Grinder, and The Black Page. Try to tell me these guys aren't the best deathcore band. Leo Miller is hands down the most unique vocalist in deathcore history - ThisNameWasStolen
The best breakdowns ever (EVER) I dare anyone to get breakdowns as half as good as those guys just listen to, strife (chug chug), My Fears Have Become Phobias
Their first album ("Allegiance") beats all deathcore bands album. Best BREAKDOWNS, double pedal speed, melodic guitar riffs but unfortunately they changed, but there are still a few great songs in their second and last album..
To the moron beneath me that said there are no original members from "Allegiance" to "Instict" - Have you heard of this magical new website called Google? If you had, you would've known that your statement is completely wrong. Don't disrespect Lech like that, man..
As Blood Runs Black is just a funny and AWESOME Band. They LOVE their fanbase and the breakdowns ARE so epic!V 10 Comments
Best deathcore band ever! One of my favorites. Amazing breakdowns, kick ass guitar solos, better pig squealing than any other deathcore bands, meaningful lyrics. They should be #1 on this list. - mp74ify
I love this band!
They are the most realist band I know. This band should be #1 on here since they're band who know what a real solo is
This band is awesome, my favorite of the genre :DV 2 Comments
Brutal breakdowns, nasty vocals, awesome lyrics, how could you not enjoy them.
These guys have some of the heaviest breakdowns I've ever heard and I've listened to almost every single band on this list. The only bands I think that could contend to the heaviness are The Acacia Strain and The Red Chord
Deathcore is basically guttural vocals and brutal breakdowns. And you can't get anymore brutal than Black Tongue. As they release more music you will see them rise higher on this list.V 8 Comments
Easily one of the best bands I have ever listened too the vocals are second only too those of Mitch Lucker of Suicide Silence but the guitar is by far the best guitar I have ever heard and tge song Punisher is easily my favorite song.
Best band indeed but they had slipped from deathcore like Suicide Silence to metalcore with deathcore like vocals such as Oceans Ate Alaska. Good band though!
Veil are amazing musicians but I feel are a little too technical to be thrown into the "deathcore" genre...
Ok I'm a suicide silence fan and I thought these were they were the best death-core band but after listening to these they just blew me away and I was like WOAH ain't nobody got time for that! XDDV 1 Comment
More emotion than any other deathcore band (except maybe for Make Them Suffer) and better melodies and lyrics as well. Go listen to Beholder of Eyes, Insurgence, and The Dawning of a New Age and see for yourself - ThisNameWasStolen
More emotion in their music than any other deathcore band (except maybe Make Them Suffer) and better melodies and lyrics than any other in the genre as well - ThisNameWasStolen
Believe what you will, Suicide Silence isn't the best of 'em.
I prefer Heaven Shall Burn's live performances over other deathcore bands'. Marcus' vocals are much more chaotic, and the guitars don't frequent around open strings because the riffs make them heavy.
Iconoclast and Antigone are awesome Albums. They have the lyrics, the sound and the voice to make them one of the greatest bands out there.
I LOVE Endzeit, anyone reading this should listen to it.
SO good! - EliHbk
Underrated band is underrated.V 4 Comments
IS this even a question? Deathcore is a mix between death metal and hardcore. This band is the only one on this damn list that is more death metal then hardcore. And seriously? Bring me the horizon? Bullet for my valentine?
Only band on the list yet that does a death metal and hardcore mix. But they have still left out the band that was the first known to mix these two... Dying fetus.
Totally awesome! My favorite deathcore band so far!
These guys aren't deathcore. They are death metal. - ryanrimmelV 7 Comments
Well I don't think of them as deathcore to me they're sounding more melodeath
Friends with the lead vocalist; also a founder of this sub-genre along with despised icon and through the eyes of the dead, but not given the deserved credit
Adam is a better vocalist than Mitch
Dusty and Ian are better guitarists than Mark and Chris
Sid is a better bassist than Dan
Blake is a better drummer than Alex
Glass Casket is better than Suicide Silence (who are still good though)
Listen to In Between the sheets and Genesis before voting for anyone else
This is like the only good deathcore band.
Great band, great lyrics. My favorite deathcore band at the moment. Give them a listen
Great band, really been jamming to them recently. They're heavy and have awesome lyrics.
Great band, great lyrics. My favorite deathcore band right now. Give them a listen
How is this band not in the top 5... this is absolutely ridiculous, angle maker has such clean and precise instrumentals and the lead vocalist has as much talent as Phil this dude is probably even a little more versatile
Very diverse vocals and some of the most slowest and nastiest breakdowns you'll ever hear. They also have songs with a constantly changing sound and actual emotion you can hear.
Love it. There’s so much variety considering it’s deathcore and it’s incredibly heavy. Give them a chance and they’ll wow you.
These guys suck why are they so high?
Deathcore in their first effort, everything else is slam.
Waking is way more slam then deathcore haha
These are no deathcore they are Slam, which in my opinion is better, so you need to check these guys out!
They're not considered deathcore but I think they are. They are so technical and talented, and they're such nice guys
Oh come on!... JARED DINES!
It’s Jared. It’s really good, nothing special, but solid work
Best weirdest German Pop Deathcore band ever, their new stuff is going to be amazing.
Didn't think I would like them.. But they are pretty awesome
Just underrated! The vocals are just sick
This band is really amazing!V 4 Comments
Such a great band. Should be higher on the list. If anyone listened to the albums Absolute Hope, Absolute Hell and The Process of Extermination would understand. Hellbound isn't that great though.
Seriously, 69? What the hell... these guys are still one of only three or four "deathcore" bands I religiously listen to (the others being Thy Art is Murder and Make Them Suffer, and Wage War if you can count them) because every other band on here sounds exactly the same. These are one of the only truly original bands in this genre...
The Process of Human Extermination is a great album. This band should be in a better spot on this list considering that half of these bands aren't even deathcore.
Most underrated band out there. Their last album Hellbound is the heaviest thing you'll ever listed to. Best Deathcore/Death Metal band.V 1 Comment
This band should at least me in the top 5!
Why are they so low down? Betraying the Martyrs are AMAZING!
The first listenable deathcore band I found
Good band but not death core.V 6 Comments
To be honest there not deathcore. There metalcore. But there an anazing band. Winston's vocals kill it. I love them. There albums are amazing. There the right amount of heaviness. Not to soft and not heavy. Still think these guys should have at least bean 11 or 12. Even though not deathcore
Just listen and enjoy! Amazing guys!
They are not deathcore but listen to "The Blue and the Grey". Winston's vocals are so widely varied. My favourite metalcore band though.
If these guys are deathcore... Then they own this
This is one of the most brutal and most awesome deathcore bands ever! Widower, Weeping Wastelands, epic songs, check them out!
They are incredible. The well is heavy as absolute hell. They have some sick breakdowns too.
I don't understand why non deathcore bands are above these guys? These guys should at the very least be in the top 15!
This band is so talented! Their music is so dark and seriously heavy. They create a very good atmosphere with all of the synthesising that they use. The main vocalist has a very good range and sounds like the grim reaper!V 3 Comments
Perfect instrumentals with very low growling!
They are good give you that
Brutal and punishing riffs and amazing vocals that pack a punch in every song
The Acacia Strain are the heaviest and the best band ever. The fact that they're not, at the very least, number 5 is depressing. Anyone who hasn't heard them are missing out and get with the program.
How the hell is one of the best deathcore bands ever outside the top 25?!V 5 Comments
Weak deathcore...These guys got me into deathcore with their first album and I am forever grateful to them for that! I never wanted to believe all the bad things that people said about this band because count your blessings was my favourite album like ever but now after listening to heaps of different deathcore and death metal bands I can truely admit that these guys are no where near as talented as most other bands in the scenes and they probably only did get famous because little girls love oli and the whole emo depressed darkness whatever scene that was so popular from the 2000s. In saying all of that I still really do like count your blessings as an album but there are other better albums out there for sure. I recommend as blood runs black, thy art, the black dahlia murder or Chelsea grin but there are tons of other great bands.
Count Your Blessings = Deathcore
Suicide Season = Metalcore (but partly deathcore)
There Is a Hell was a good album Sempiternal was amazing and That's the Spirit, SUCKS. They're Deathcore for let's say 2 albums. After that the music changed, I've loved the first 4 albums but the latest one, "That's The Spirit" seems more like pop rock, their are some good lyrics in the songs on the album but they changed cause of Oli's ability to scream. Essentially, he can't anymore. That's why the music changed. Sucks! But that's the way things go sometimes. Still have much love for the bands old material, the new stuff is not for me though.
This band at one point was alright. When Oliver screams especially for Diamonds aren't forever, that song is just a mess his screams are awful, they aren't even close to being deathcore, well not anymore... That was only Count your blessings. The only album that was pretty good was There is a hell but overall I don't know how they even got to be in this list
Count Your Blessings is their only fully deathcore album, and it was pretty darn good. Suicide Season is mainly metalcore but certain songs off that album could be considered partly deathcore, to an extent. You can hear the deathcore influence in songs like "Football Season Is Over" and "Sleep With One Eye Open". "Chelsea Smile" is a good one, but that's metalcore.V 49 Comments
First album was mid-blowing, a master piece I could say, brutal, intricate and fast.
Most technically advanced, complex, and talented deathcore band out there. Their guitar work is top notch. Listen to "Confessions of what I've done", "Don't Fail Me Darko", and "From the Deepest Darkness" and you'll see what I mean.
This is top band
More death metal than deathcore on their recent album, but still an extraordinary band. #5 on my personal top 10 followed be suicide silence, whitechapel, chelsea grin, and job for a cowboy.
Why is the faceless on here. This band is Tech Death, not Deathcore.
The only deathcore band I can stand alongside aversions crown.
The faceless is better than more than half of these bands! Just listen to Leica and the ghost of a stranger! Akeldama was a masterpiece
Most negative upfront and real band
Suffokate are one of my favourite bands, purely becuase they have brutal music, Ricky and Matt have incredible voices and they are just plain awesome!
I don't even like deathcore but this band is sick. They kind of a mix between deathcore and tech death, but not in the weedly deedly Rings of Saturn way. Lots of symphonic elements on their new stuff but it's not front and center like most symphonic metal bands, it just adds melody in the background
Great band but not even close to being deathcore they are post hardcore
