Best Melodic Metalcore BandsHere Are The Top BANDS oF This genre which include less Screaming and more melodic leads,riffs,and Choruses
The Top Ten
This band makes some of the best melodies I’ve ever heard. Not only do they have the impressive technical skill and the heaviness and intensity, but they are creative geniuses when it comes to composing music and putting emotion into it.
The best group
The best band ever hands down. No one can compare to the power and true sense of melody these guys posses with their music.
Best metal band making music right now. Go listen to Down From The Sky and tell me differentV 5 Comments
I would suggest that you just listen to Tears don't fall and then immediately listen to Tears don't fall part 2, you'll become die hard fans of this band trust me! Also Scream Aim Fire, Room 409 are some other good songs for new comers to this band... They're really good
Best meatalcore band ever, no comparison. Great mixture of emo and screamo! Songs such as Waking the Demon, Tears don't Fall and The Last Fight rule! - rohitsingh
I figured these guys would get number 1 simply due to the fan boys. But I actually really appreciate some of their material. I do not, however, enjoy the guitar solos. So generic.
I'm so relieved to see them #1 on this list. Bullet for My Valentine spell melodic metalcore. Their lyrics combined with Tuck's extremely realistic vocals, Page's eargasmically excruciating riffs, Jay's screams and Moose's drumming. When it comes to melodic metalcore, Look out for these guys!V 11 Comments
Everything with this band is god-like
Killswitch would be my number 1 pic even though they have lost quality from album to album. Alive or just breathing was a tremendous display on what is possible in the genre of metalcore and as Jesse has rejoined them I could imagine that this is the turning point to old strenght. No offensive to Howard, he was a good vocalist and even very good in the end of heartache, but Jesse has got another level. No end in sight, released in 2012 is really good and by reading Jesse say it was the worst of the album whitch will be released soon I think it could become nearly as good as AOJB. And to conclude my statement, I have to say: Killswitch is the very best core band, followed by the sorrow and number 3 as I lay dying.
Only metal posers will say that this band is not the top 1... Vocals, riffs, powerful they're the most powerful melodic metalcore in the world.. All of their song are so popular.. You don't know nothing about melodic metalcore if you don't know this band and not consider them as a number 1 melodic metal core band...
You can get no better than metalcore for this type of music has it all. Riffs to the words to the raw emotion displayed here. Take that all you special interest discrimination groups!V 10 Comments
This is the best band I have heard so far. The lyrics are amazing, so as the vocals. Bullet For My Valentine is also very good but not better. Awakened album is the ruler.
This is the band that got me into metal! And I am still listening to them. Ocean Between Us best album.
It IS the BEST. All albums, awakened especially is the greatest
Well done you're very good band in the worldV 4 Comments
The Gift of Life is probably one of the greatest albums I've listened to all the way through, as of recently. The singing, from the screams to the cleans, and the guitars, from the heavy riffs from songs like "Your Voice" to the wonderful harmonies of "Photographs"... Not to mention the drums... Just give each track the first 30 seconds. You'll see what I mean.
No words. They are different. Very unique. Armed with exceedingly talented people, their current line-up is second to none. The Gift of Life was a masterpiece, each song has a tinge of what the band puts in as a whole. They are slowly making their way up, and I really want to see them do so. Very underrated, immensely talented. Unique, well placed melodies, deep lyrics and toned screams. Kevin is brilliant. Can't wait for the new album!
I only come across this band, everyone in the band oozes talent. Excellent drummer, catch guitar riffs, great singer and talented bassist. I am looking forward to seeing what this band can do.
Listen to the Gift of Life. The screams, the clean vocals, the riffs and the kicks. Photographs actually tore my heart out. And brilliant lyrics. Very unique. Amazing stuff. Waiting eagerly for the new album!V 5 Comments
What? Mastodon isn't metalcore.
This is the definition of Melodic Metalcore lol
Greatest metal out there... Wait for the Christmas album to be released!
Best melodic metalcore band ever
The best there is on this planet
Best Melodic Metalcore band ever!V 4 Comments
Sometimes I wonder about what people consider melodic metalcore, some of these bands aren't even metalcore. Bury Tomorrow brings everything to the table, unlike some bands that have out of sync music and riffs in inappropriate places, and music in the background that sounds like just a mash up of all the instruments at the same time. I started with Union of Crowns and loved it but I like their first one even better, Portraits, even though in listened to it 2nd. Runes is to me their weakest but still good.My top 3 and albums1. Bury Tomorrow - Portraits2. Erra - Augment3. Breakdown of Sanity - PerceptionEven with this list, Killswitch Engage should have legendary status.
Easily the next big thing in melodic metalcore. Their upcoming album will cement their arrival at the very top. Already they are one of the best live bands on the world circuit.
This band got me though a lot of lockdowns in prison, I love this band
First two albums were amazing and Runes should be too!V 3 Comments
That's not even Melodic Metalcore
Every Demon Hunter song (except a couple) is pure brutality with amazing melodic choruses or verses, every album had gotten better and better!
I've never heard any other better band. All their songs are awesome!
The whole list is good - Demon Hunter still makes my playlist
Listen to the 2012 album TRUE DEFIANCE!V 1 Comment
That was unique band I ever seen.
The world has no idea about these guys, by far the best on this list
They have two albums out right now they shred
"Till The End" "I Am The Lion" "White Livered" and "Seven" are all great songsV 2 Comments
When you lidsen do adept you get that fealing in your chest that not many bands give
Most melodic Metal band in the world for sure. Amazing melodic clean vocals, great screaming, beautiful synths (especially on the track "Dreaming"), guitars just rock, drum boosts my soul, bass just rock in my ear! Not only instrumentally, but also lyrically they write good songs which have only good messages in it, love, expressions of your feelings etc. This band is better than all the bands out here. Where are all the Dead by April soldiers?! Vote please! Let everyone know that Dead by April is still alive!
No words needed. Love their songs!
First of all, their music is very appealing to the listeners, especially their lyrics, they've brought a lot of meaningful songs, emphasizes our feelings and expresses their thought about music, to be honest, they are way better than Bullet For My Vallentine, All That Remains and As I Lay Dying. And their unclean vocalist, Jimme, is more aggressive. He can scream and sing, he is a versatile person. Over all, this band is very worthy to hear.
Surely this band should be in top 10 on this list. Their understanding of music is way high and their work on albums namely 'Let the World Know' and 'Incomparable' shows their devotion to music. shaping a song with such great lyrics and giving a melodious music is what other bands need to learn from DEAD BY APRIL.V 19 Comments
Make way through the night you all will be in my sight...
A7x are no longer metalcore, they're just another word for awesome
OK, what are A7x doing here, they are the best metal band, but they aren't metalcore anymore
All of these bands are great but Avenged is the best from all. I miss Rise to Remain from the list!V 3 Comments
There are a lot of good metalcore bands, but I think that Atreyu and Avenged Sevenfold are the best 2 choices. I like A7X more, but they aren't as metalcore anymore so Atreyu wins.
Are you kidding me! Atreyu are number one! Absolutely insanely awesome!
Pretty great Melodic Metalcore band. Deserves at least top 10!
I've heard one of their songs but I think I agreeV 4 Comments
Great Singing and Supernatural guitar leads. Should Be At The Top.
Specially In Two weeks the lead which starts to play after the chorus is so WOW.
And the special thing is that all their songs have such similar Guitar leads
All That Remains is the closest thing to intercourse thus far, aside from actual intercourse but a lot of the time I can't tell the difference.
Amazing it is the best and the creator of melodic metalcore MELODIC! Period
They are one of the greatest bands of all time been a fan for over 10 years love their old and new musicV 4 Comments
That's not even Melodic Metalcore
Parkway Drive best metalcore band in the world!
Why is Parkway Drive buried on this list? I have listened to every single band above them and Parkway is far and away better. Parkway has better riffs, better breakdowns, better songs.
This is melodic metalcore! Not trivium that's thrash metal and so is avenged seven fold
One of the best "melodic" metalcore bands I have ever heard. There songs create a powerful atmosphere around them! It seems people forgot this is melodic metalcore list! - Zoran945V 5 Comments
Outstanding and melodious guitar riffs no one can compare these guys. These guys are gods of melodic death metal
These guys are just all so talented and offer a lot and also something a bit different to melodic metal and also metal in general. this bands work is so much more melodic than many other bands on this list
Best metalcore band to date.. lyrics are their strong point and Mike Hranica is a genius
Seriously some of the best metal I've ever heard. The band that got me into Metal in the first place!
This band should be in the top 5 for sure, what guys?!
Simply an epic band... Although I don't if they fall in this category but they create some sensational stuff! Listen to The Final Episode, I won't give in, Killing You, The prophecy, etc. And then you'll believe me...
JUst got into them as they got rid of the their singer Danny, so was worried about their dircetion with new album, 'THe black' and whilst not as heavy as say 'stand up and scream' but still an awesome sound with low and high vocals with melody galore! GREAT band originally from York, ENG..
These guys are more post-hardcore and unlike the emo kids say they are not metal. Still GREAT though!
Incredible balance between heavy and melodic, but not with your typical progressive sound. They cross barriers that are very unique and powerful. Chris Clancy has a voice that simply carries them in a way no other could.
So underrated! Everyone please look these guys up! They're extremely talented and represent great clean vocals in metal! Truly a great band!
Mutiny Within deserve a lot more credit than they get. They are a lot better than half the crap breakdown dependent bands in Metalcore today.
Best band everV 1 Comment
I don't think this band gets enough credit since they changed from their first 2 albums but over all they are still an amazing band from the guitars to drums and I love the cleans and screams!
Fantastic band. Insanely talented with strong instrumentals.
Underrated band that broke up too soon :(
This Band makes such beatiful choruses with such awesome guitar riffs.
A really deserving band of the No1 spot.
Well they are such a band that provides a true new meaning of melody with their strong voices and guitar riffs. To get this feeling one can hear 1. Far from home and 2. Remember everything. and many more.
Don't Forget: While She Sleepd
Makes the most relatable music ever
The best melodic metal core
Helped me through a lot in my life.
Should be top 10 by far!
Best metalcore band pure melodic metalcore..
How aren't they in the top 10? They are epic!
I think that this one of the most famous melodic metalcore bands.I don't know why people think that Black Veil Brides is playing Glam Metal.This is instently wrong!
Simply amazing! give them a try
I don't think they belong on this list, their music is beyond just melodic metalcore. Way better then any of the other bands on this list. Bullet for my valentine is number 1? Where's Darkest Hour, Norma Jean, uh Protest the Hero?
These Aussie boys can crank out some sick melodies, while staying heavy as fuark
Why wasnt this on the list sharks in your mouth is a melodic metalcore song and its what made them famous. They deserve this don't compare thash and hevy metal with melodic metalcore
Deliver Us the most melodic record I've ever heard.
This band sometimes sounds like Megadeth to me. Melodic, riff based tunes with screaming vocals. The front-lady has quite capable singing skills, as well as a hot bod.
I can't believe this band isn't higher on the list. They're fantastic and so devastatingly underrated.
Maria brink definitely deserves to be in at least the top 10 because in my opinion she has the best voice in this genre all of her music is THE BEST I don't know what it is you just really got to listen to her.my favorite song by her is blood
Best melodic band this year 2014
Why the Hell was this Ignored
Their New album "Sempiternal" has made the to earn a Position here!
They are much better than many Other bands mentioned here!
Their first album, Someday Came Suddenly, is just nostalgic and simply beautiful.
Woahh! Love this band
Deserve to be in Top 5
Found them as a symphonic metal fan and they got me more interested in metalcore. They have a great combination with their three vocalists. Drop Dead Cynical is one of my favorite songs ever. I don't see them getting close to number one on this list but I'd love to see more acts like them.
This has a higher rating than Dreamshade! Check Wikipedia.
My Favorite Melodic Metalcore/Post-Hardcore Band
My list goes :
1. Crown The Empire
2. Bring Me The Horizon
3. Escape The Fate
4. Of Mice & Men
5. Asking Alexandria
Agressive melodic metal for me!
