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!

23 The Devil Wears Prada The Devil Wears Prada The Devil Wears Prada is an American metalcore band from Dayton, Ohio, formed in 2005. It consists of members Mike Hranica, Jeremy DePoyster, Andy Trick, and Daniel Williams.

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!

24 Mutiny Within

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 ever

They shoulde first. They give the true definition to melodic metalcore.

25 Miss May I Miss May I Miss May I is an American metalcore band from Troy, Ohio. Formed in 2007, they signed to Rise Records in 2008 and released their debut album, Apologies Are for the Weak through the label while the members were still attending high school.

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.

26 Haste The Day

This Band makes such beatiful choruses with such awesome guitar riffs.
A really deserving band of the No1 spot.

27 Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch is an American heavy metal band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band's name is derived from a fictional martial arts maneuver in the 2003 film Kill Bill.

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.

32 The Amity Affliction
33 Between the Buried and Me Between the Buried and Me Between the Buried and Me is an American progressive metal band from Raleigh, North Carolina. Formed in 2000, the band consists of Tommy Giles Rogers, Jr.

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?

35 Silverstein
36 Abandon All Ships
37 I Killed the Prom Queen

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

38 Darkest Hour Darkest Hour Darkest Hour is an American melodic death metal band from Washington, D.C., formed in 1995. Though failing to break early in their career, the band has received acclaim for their albums Undoing Ruin, Deliver Us, and The Eternal Return.

Deliver Us the most melodic record I've ever heard.

39 In This Moment

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

40 I See Stars I See Stars I See Stars is an American rock band that formed in 2006 based in Warren, Michigan. The band currently consists of vocalist Devin Oliver, guitarist Brent Allen, keyboardist and vocalist Andrew Oliver, and bass guitarist Jeff Valentine.
