Top 10 Best Metalcore BandsMrhabs4ever The best Metalcore bands there are on this planet...
The Top Ten
I love a lot of the bands on this list but seriously, this is no contest. Avenged started Metalcore and, I must admit, were pretty damn good at it but yet they are easily a lot better at making their more Heavy Metal styled stuff. I also love Killswitch and again, they are really good. The only problem is that some songs are really really strong whereas others are weak. Then Asking Alexandria too. I love them but compared to As I Lay Dying? No way. Also have Bullet For My Valentine who I love but, although a good band, they don't compare to As I Lay Dying. Plus there's BMTH. Started out as good Deathcore and turned into good Metalcore but yet they suck live and some songs are not the greatest. Trivium too. I actually love these guys so much but yet As I Lay Dying still beat them. On this list I see my 3 favourite Metalcore bands (As I Lay Dying, Trivium, KSE) but yet no one on here is better then As I Lay Dying.
The thing with As I Lay Dying is that with every album they ...more
I think their latest album "Awakened" was the worst. And "The Powerless Rise" wasn't as good as the previous albums. but that's just my opinion
Bullet is my number 2. As I Lay Dying every song, every break down the lyrics everything about this band is amazing. Live they are insane they get the crowd so involed, I've never seen a show like As I Lay Dying. Plus have you heard bullet live? They are garbage. But their albums do kick-ass. Because of the live shows and how much meaning the lyrics have in them AS I LAY DYING is hands down number one on this list
As I lay dying covers the ingredients of their music genre in every way, the dual soloing, the violent breakdowns, Josh Gilbert's clean vocal intervention and yes last but not the least Tim's muscular growling. The coordination of all these pieces even in a short 4 minute ordeal of a song is done so perfectly. As I lay dying forever m/(-_-) m/.

Forgive me, because my English is poor, but I'm here to express my comment about this band the best possible way. In Brazil, people do not hear much metalcore bands, most of them unaware of the matelcore and similar genres. The people of Brazil have preferences for styles less appreciable, unfortunately. It is not easy to promote the metal around here because people are only interested in samba and funk ordinary. But I believe there is a group to which I belong enjoying a good metal song and we are striving to spread the best genre of all: metalcore. This band exemplifies perfectly good building style we're talking about, their music is amazing, all the parts that constitute bring beauty to the song. We must recognize that the KSE has revolutionized the world music scene by introducing a new style and reformulating the concept of music. They brought a new way of understanding and making music, a new way of looking at the process of musical creation. At first, Jesse Leach made clear ...more
Killswitch Engage are the best ever Melodic Metalcore band ever because lets be honest most Metalcore bands out there are crap. Jesse Leach and Howard Jones are two of the best Metalcore Vocalists ever without ever sounding outdated. I don't know the hell Avenged Sevenfold 2nd despite being top of their game in the past they're not Metalcore now!
KsE really blow away every single band in this top, except maybe As I Lay Dying and A7X, because of their rich musical ability. Come on guys, best metal core riffs ever!
Can't agree more with the top 2.
Killswitch and As I Lay Dying have offered so much in the genre and it isn't hard to see why they are rated so highly. Both incredible talents.
BEST BAND EVER! AFTER METALLICA! ASCENDANCY IS BRILLIANT! AND SHOGUN IS A PIECE OF ART! I SERIOUSLY LOVE THEM! TRIVIUM FTW!
Best band ever truly amazing riffs and mats killer voice paired with corey's ripping guitar solos make the best metalcore band ever
Great riffs, they remind me of classic heavy metal
Best metal band ofV 87 Comments
Bullet For My Valentine, Trivium, Bring Me The Horizon, Asking Alexandria, Parkway Drive are some of the BEST bands in the modern metal. But Bullet For My Valentine seems to be the most outstanding. Pretty much every aspect of their music is perfect (in my opinion) - the lyrics, the guitar parts, the drum parts, the vocal performance...just everything. Also they are a great live band, which isn't something usual with most of the bands in this genre. Also, they sound pretty unique, original and recognizable, which is another problem for the metalcore bands.
Trivium are another of the quality bands out there. Just listen to some of their songs from 'In Waves' or 'Shogun'. Absolutely great band.
BMTH just... I don't really like the first album (except a few songs), but their other work... Incredible. And every album is better than the previous and shows progress which is great. 'Sempiternal' is my personal most favourite album (so far).
AA are a good band, with ...more
SPEECHLESS! how can a band be so mind blowing like them! never have I heard any band performing like them before! just listen them and you will feel why and how they are THE BEST! you will feel what a perfect metal core band is like!
This is the best band. What a powerful scream, fast solo and technical druming. Hey man they are the king and legend of metalcore
Starting to like them more, although their lyrics are very cheesy most of the time and they never switch up the lyrical content, also about failed relationships. I also really don't like when they have to scream "YEAH! " unfittingly before a solo. Otherwise, they are good.V 124 Comments
I like all of the bands listed, in fact, the sub genre of metalcore itself holds the best music ever created... That being said, I personally love All That Remains because of the ever maturing of their songs from album to album, and the way they texture their songs. Blending the traditional metal screams with clean vocals makes the band one that can be listened to for long periods (which I often do) without the music becoming exhaustive. All That Remains should top the list. Don't believe me? Give a listen to "A War You Cannot Win' for starters!
No way! Bullet for my valentine is more like emo screamo than any type of metalcore... All that remains is where its at. Insane vocals and riffs! Killswitch... Tied for #1, Avenged Sevenfold also a great band, I agree on their position. But bullet for my valentine don't come close in my opinion. Maybe on an indie rock or emo list! Where is the death punch at! Trivium blows bullet away by far! Take bullet for my valentine of the list!
A lot of bands are blurring the lines between genres, such as Bullet For My Valentine, As I Lay Dying, Caliban etc. But All That Remains are the best at what they do - which is blurring the lines between Metalcore, thrash, modern metal, death metal and everything in between. They released one of the greatest albums in 'The Fall of Ideals', but many felt they sold-out their fanbase. But 'Overcome' aside, all their releases are excellent for those with a broad palette. And 'A War You Cannot Win' is fantastic. They're no doubt some of the best musicians on the planet, and can do it all. They march to the best of their own double-kick drum. Triple-A band.
why on 7?V 26 Comments
ABR obliterates all of their competition... Or at least they should be. Their guitar and drum playing is some of the best, and their singing goes unmatched. Not to mention the lyrics to a lot of their songs are moving if you listen to them. They're the best thing that's ever happened to metalcore and they deserve to be number 1
To me, August Burns Red makes some of the most beautiful and dynamic music that's out there With multiple instruments that are not specific to the metalcore/hardcore genre, they infuse many genres into their music to make every song a piece of art and not just a number to complete the album. ABR is going where no other band has gone before and they are doing so with excellence. Sure, all of the other bands on this list are great metalcore bands and they all deserve to be in the top 10, no matter what number. But as to ABR, they are the most unique. As every song is unique in itself, some characteristics of ABR are their bone crushing breakdowns, intricate guitar riffs, expert drum work, and spot on screaming. Examples are in the songs: Internal Cannon, Empire, Spirit Breaker, Creative Captivity, Black Sheep, Composure, Crusades, Mariana's Trench, Animals, and Count It All As Lost.
August Burns Red's music is not compared in any way with any other band's; the excellent work of the drummer Matt Greiner fits perfectly with the bass and guitars like there could not be any other way to play it along as the way it is set to be done. Including Jake Luhrs unique and superior scream and voice! Also the lyrics are awesome! The song Meridian includes some words of the Holy Bible and they make it MUSIC in an excellent and incredible way! They deserve to be the #1 metalcore band!
They are the best melodic metalcore band in the planetV 79 Comments
This band is my favorite! M. Shadows' voice and vocal harmonies are admirable, unique. Synyster's guitar sounds like heaven to my ears. When you combine those two gods with the awesome talent of J. Christ, Zacky Vengeance and the deceased (but forever in our hearts) Jimmy "The REV" Sullivan, this band seriously has no match. All of their cds are GREAT but my favorite so far is City of Evil (that one is truly AMAZING). Nightmare is an awesome album but sadly it reminds us that Sullivan is no longer in the band, although he had his part in it. However, Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater's ex-drummer) did a great job taking Jimmy's place on the album. Avenged Sevenfold should be #1 in this list, although Bullet is a great band also (my second favorite).
When Eddie riggs says in brutal legend that he feels like he was born in the wrong time and he wants to be in a time where music was ancient epicness. This is Avenged Sevenfold The most Legendary band of all time
Rip Rev. the drummer
One of the best bands on the planet.
Their first albums are good, their last 2 cds are simply fantastic! They surely became one of my favourite bands and their like shows are simply insane!
Even though they've moved on to Hard Rock and Normal Heavy Metal,they're Metalcore stuff are bangers.They even have some Alternative Metal stuff too.-DarkBoi-XV 77 Comments
This is the BEST band of the 21th century. I thought all metal was becoming dull and the new bands were just using ripoffs of 80s and 90s metal BEFORE I heard PWD. Theses guys are truly in it for the music and have put out 3 albums that have changed my life for the better. Sure you can say someone's better at guitar or drums but Parkway has the best sound in metalcore... END OF STORY.
As I Lay Dying isn't too far behind.
Parkway drive is seriously the best metalcore band I know and I listen to all sorts of metalcore. For the first is not B4MV, A7X, Triv, KSE, new BMTH, ADTR, LOG, HB, SS or SF metalcore, sure they all got influences from metalcore but they are not clean metalcore. PWD deserve to be in the top just listing to them I mean Gordon have a real killer blast beat and Luke and Jeff is one of the best guitar duet you can find in the 21 century and Winstons incredible growl style is one of the best in all the Core genre. He could really be a singer in a death metal band. The Albums Horizons, Deep Blue and Atlas are real milestones in the metalcore genre it's hard to find a song that you can't like or just want to mosh to. Especially with songs like Carrion, The Siren's Song, Boneyards, Idols and Anchors, Horizont, Dead Man's Chest, Sleepwalker, Wreckage, Deadweight, Deliver Me, Karma, Home Is For The Heartless, Set To Destroy, Old Ghost / New Regrets, Dream Run, Wild Eyes, Dark Days, The River, ...more
The reason that PWD isn't #1 is because they aren't as popular. Give them a listen! Try and find a song that doesn't kick A. It's impossible. Bullet For My Valentine is good but they are nowhere near the talent of these Aussies.

Lamb of god is not metalcore. They are to good too be in the metal core genre.
I think lamb of god is the best
The most epic scream sound... And I like this band. Lamb of god forever
Christian metalcore at it's best - EliHbkV 47 Comments
Sure, if you consider the actual music aspect of AA, there are better on this list, like Escape The Fate. Not to say that they aren't talented, they definitely are. But Danny Worsnop can scream like nothing I've heard. His lows are fairly average, in league with most of the bands on this list, but his highs are incredible. His high screams sound like he's screaming through a tube, and the sound is coming out far away. He makes them sound almost unattached, like he's throwing his voice! His performance at the Mitch Lucker memorial show was also one of the best. But this band isn't just Asking Danny. Ben Bruce can pump out some pretty intense breakdowns, and his verses are pretty neat too. And the topics that they sing out are real. Sure, a lot of them are about women (wink wink), but most of their songs are about substance abuse and relationship problems. All in all, Asking Alexandria deserves to be in the top ten, after making it through the MANY problems they've had.
They are like the best band ever! I love like all their songs so much especially a candlelit dinner with inamorta, a prophecy, alerion, final episode, and not the american average
WTF? You guys Missed One of the Best... m/ m/ for Asking Alexandria - skt
BMTH and AA are the bestV 96 Comments
By far the most underrated metalcore band. Amazing riffs, songs, never selling out. People saying AA is good metalcore? Or BMTH? You don't even know how much more influential this band has been on the genre!
How is it, that a band that never disappoints on any release EVER, gets a disappointing place in this "best metalcore" competition? Each and every single song Unearth has ever written is 10x better than most of these bands entire careers best work. If you skip past these guys, give them a chance. You'll realize that As I Lay Dying can't even compare in AWESOMENESS.
Best metalcore band by far! !
I don�'t wanna say this is for sure the best band, what I can say is that it is better than all bands ranked higher on this listV 3 Comments
Come on guys BMTH rocks! They're the most unique band here. I've never heard similar structure of song. They should be on 2nd 'cause they're awesome. Just listen to Empire or Alligator Blood or even Hospital For Souls, Sleepwalking and Chelsea Smile (These are my favorite songs) And if you want something for chill out listen Deathbeds I promise that you won't be disappointed! VOTE FOR BMTH!
You've never heard similar song structure? You must never have heard any other metalcore band..
Their lyrics have been wonderful insights into life and it's nuances. The sounds from Blessed with a curse were excellent with solid vocals, they're always improving even after disasters and getting great sounds.
Ok, they are no longer Metalcore exactly, but they're first two albums were among the best that genre has ever seen. Now, they've evolved into something very different, but totally unique. There is a Hell... was the first step and introduced the electronic element they were adapting into their sound, and the Sempiternal took it and practically created a new genre. Their latest release, That's the Spirit, has very much left Metalcore behind entirely. However, the musicality of the instrumentals and artistry of the lyrics is pretty unequaled among these band. Plus, Oli has managed to go from one of the best screamers ever to a genuinely great clean vocalist. The transformation of the band is impressive and deserves recognition.
Good bandV 121 Comments
the most versatile hardcore band in the biz these days, I was really impressed with their most recent work in Zombie and With Roots Above And Branches Below. Plus they play an amazing live show. my props to these guys. - alexthehardcorekid
Their earliest works are like guilty pleasures for me, but around 2009's With Roots Above this band stepped it up big time. One year later, 2010's Zombie EP shattered ideology around this band. They had crafted something insane. Another year goes by, and the band puts out Dead Throne in 2011, which I will say is the biggest record they done. 8:18 is also good but the middle portion of the bands career has left a massive impact with these conceptual releases. Miles above anything BMTH or AA could ever accomplish.
the first metalcore I heard, this guys have made great music! - rock2metal

If you saw this band live you would know exactly why they deserve to be in the top 10.
The BEST live band around. Not the best band, though. But definitely worth every penny to see them live.
They have more skill than any band on this list. Also, Greg is probably the best vocalist in the whole scene
They deserve to be in the top 10V 2 Comments
Hatebreed is the more hardcore punk side of metalcore and it's done so well. It has to be said that if you like one album by these guys you will like every other album they release and not in a bad way. The only thing really against Hatebreed is the lyrics I'm not a huge fan of bands like Suicidal Tendencies for the fact that the lyrics are all super tough guy lyrics. Though Hatebreed has more to their lyrics than look at how tough I am. They still have those moments.
Metalcore started with At The Gates, NOT hatebreed imbecile
No At the gates was melodic death metal and hade nothing to do whit metalcore. Not sure if metalcore started whit hatebreed but it was NOT At the gates.
Their defiantly a hardcore band, and the other stuff is nu metal for sureV 7 Comments
Volumes is still pretty "new" and I won't be surprised when they hit top ten very soon. Such an amazing band with potential.
The riffs are so catchy and as a band they can breakdown and be ambient. They should be 2 or three not 97
Great progressive metalcore band, but they haven't overcome Northlane...
Simply great.V 4 Comments
Extremely under rated.
A group of musicians with real talent and clever ideas, this band moves me in a certain way that only very very few bands can.
People talk about how unique their favorite band on this list really are.. Well in that case so will I. If u really think u have heard something unique, then please have a proper listen to this band.
Really interesting layers, especially in the album Singularity. The lyrics don't suck, but the vocals are actually distracting from the music... the instrumental version of the album is incredible.
This is my personal favourite metalcore band.
Have kept quality over a range of different soundsV 8 Comments
Best singer ever, seriously this guy is amazing. As for the rest it is just as good, powerful, efficient, melodic when it comes to choruses... It's hard to go through an entire album though but once you've heard a few songs from other bands and then go back to Memphis May Fire you realize that there's always something more... That something that most of today's bands don't have... Talent
I think this band is so amazing Matty Mullins (lead singer) is so awesome at what he does this is literally my favorite Metalcore band and this will always be my favorite this band saved my life so many times they also made me in a better mood throughout the day plus I feel as if Matty Mullins understands what people go through he is beyond amazing along with the whole band itself. They have something that a lot of bands don't have. I love MMF! An Matty you're amazing at what you do and don't forget that! I literally wish I could go to one of your concerts one of these days I also would totally love to meet everyone! I think MMF should be #1 on the list.
Lyrics, choruses, breakdowns and the lead singer's voice is fantastic. They quickly became one of my all time favourite bands!
Matty is a big boy with a big voice and big talent. highly recommendV 18 Comments
ADTR is a post hardcore/pop punk band. Not even close to metalcore.
Then why are they so high then, look they are metalcore, listen to them, compare them to other metalcore bands. They sound like a blend between metalcore and pop punk - RustyNail
You can rarely go wrong with a day to remember their music blends perfectly and they are not afraid to call people out in their song which in my opinion adds 20 badass points
I really like A Day To Remember but the fact that keeps bugging me is that they usually don't do guitar solos in their songs, my personal favorite album is Homesick.
Good Band Though!
They are, in my opinion, a mix of easycore, pop punk, and metalcore. - EliHbkV 17 Comments
These are some relatively new guys that really deserve a listen. If your into the idea of unique breakdowns and a sound that can be described as Parkway drive with clean vocals, then this is the band for you. Deserves to be top 10 with their latest album Divinitation.
This band artistically and sonically is one of the better bands that I have listened to, and I have a good amount of metalcore albums. I hope they don't get overlooked because so many good bands are releasing good albums and it is easy to miss a great release because of this. They are a band that truly deserve to be heard. Also it has to be said that their music has tremendous substance!
Just started listening to this band and they're really amazing. As the other comment stated, the same heavy screaming that parkway drive has with beautiful clean lyrics. Really worth a listen
Is there a bad Australian band? In metalcore there is Parkway Drive, Amity Affliction, Northlane, Buried In Verona, well, In Hearts Wake (I Killed The Prom Queen, Deez Nuts, Capture The Crown - not as awesome as the other but still very good bands, I’m just that much of a fan)... Than there are awesome deathcore bands Thy Art Is Murder, Make Them Suffer and Boris The Blade, all best of the best. AC/DC of course... That’ all I can come up with, but daaamn. Australia is awesome for heavy bands. - MixerV 2 Comments
Its simple really, none of the other bands would exist without them - that1guysfrend
I think Converge are the greatest because they are true to the term Metalcore unlike many other bands because they combined elemnts of Thrash and Hardcore.
The album Jane Doe and a fantastic mixture of metal and hardcore and is one of the heaviest things I've ever heard
I had to go all the way to 40 to see a non-poseur band? Have you people not seen all your favorite bands wearing these dudes' shirts in band photos? It's cause they all know Converge are better than their sorry asses.
This band deserves to be at least in the top 5.V 12 Comments
A-M-A-Z-I-N-G BAND! One Reality is one of the best albums ever recorded!
Adam gray is literally the best drummer ever.. amazing band!
They are like August Burns Red little brother... but sounds good.. I like their sound.
Banda linda de perfeita!V 2 Comments
Wow this band is criminally underrated, shadows fall, killswitch engage and lamb of God were the 3 bands that popularized the "core" sound we know today (I know lamb of God is more groove metal but a lot of elements in their music reflects metalcore so they are an influence on the genre. Also, shadows fall started doing solos again since they started (the 90's and 00's were a dark time for metal since not many bands played solos and we had all this nu metal and nothing else. Shadows fall was a band that ignored that trend and paved the way for a lot of metalcore bands to follow. They are a top 3 in book.
Awesome heavy, melodic riffing and, Mind Blowing Guitar solos that put most other metalcore bands to shame. They are the perfect blend of Swedish Death Metal and American Hardcore, one of the few metalcore bands that I truly love.
For me the best this band, amazing guitar notes
Shadows fall have to be at lease top 15V 3 Comments
Definitely my all time favorite band! Mattie's vocals are always clean cut and easy to understand and the power behind the lyrical content always leaves me breathless as I mosh and scream myself!
Worth a much better spot than this! True metalcore
Amazingly heavy. Sounds similar to parkway drive!
Absolute inspiring hreat music and lyrics. Warm, Close, Real and powerful, positive Energy!V 1 Comment
These guys are amazing. Every instrument is on point, nice growling and clean vocals. Insane technical skill, and they can pull it all off live. They also incorporate many different genres into the metal, and it leaves me in awe how smoothly they can transition in between them.
Jesus Christ. This list has made me lose faith in humanity. A bunch of third-string wranglers from a terrible metalcore subgenre, that its fans mistake for metalcore itself, taking space away from good bands like BtBaM. And why are they so far down anyway? I thought they had actual popularity.
Their later albums really aren't metalcore, I only really call their first 2 proper metalcore, and I found them both to be extremely dull for the most part - kempokid
Not Metalcore anymore or have been for a while, but they destroy 99% of the bands below, and still did back when they had a metalcore soundV 2 Comments
Atreyu is now underneath Pierce the Veil. What is wrong with you people? Listen to Lip Gloss and Black. Listen to Right Side of the Bed. Listen to Ex's and Oh's. Listen to Any song from the first three albums... They all destroy pretty much any song any band on this last past the Top 10 have ever done.
Awesome lyrics and vocals I mean the growls ar given by lead vocalist Alex and the clean vocals ar given by the drummer! Awesome
Personally Atreyu is my favorite band. With songs like Lose It and The Theft I don't see how they aren't higher on the list. I know they aren't as well known as some of the other bands here but they should be.
What could be more badass than the perfect blend of screaming and singing. With a variety of different sounds between albums.V 8 Comments
Suicide Silence is death core, not metalcore
Amazing band, the most memorable in my opinion R.I.P. mitch Lucker
But Suicide Silence is deathcore
Heavy as hell! Great breakdowns.V 2 Comments
Yes, 'Numbers - Deluxe' is a high-quality release. Very unique, and the 'Keisha' cover smashes it out of the park. Brutal, with finesse.
I like the way they use eletronic stuff in their music.. makes it unique or at least different.
Any band with caleb shomo is an amazing and truthfully metalcore band unlike many of the bands here
Beartooth is amazing I like the songs
Best band ever NO contest at all
Beartooth is one of my favorite bands. I would've voted for Wage War though if they were on this list. - Ultrasonic1000V 9 Comments
Illusions is a great song
Their first album
Lol! Disturbed doesn't have any metalcore genre on their songs!
This band is metal not metalcore, I don't mean to be one of the technical dickheads but it's true, only metalcore and sub-genres of metalcore should be here
They were a mix of nu metal and thrash metal, and now they are just straight heavy metal
In my opinion, I would have to say slipknot started the metalcore community. Don't give a flying care what people say! PERIOD!
Slipknot is great but far from Metalcore. They're in the sub genre of Groove Metal.
Extreme Nu Metal Not MetalcoreV 3 Comments
Not even slightly metalcore. Can't stand them either.
I live PTV, but they shouldn't be on this list; they're more post-hardcore.
They're not metalcore at all.
I live and breath Pierce the Veil but there more emo post hardcore xV 3 Comments
Five Finger Death Punch does not only make great music, but they are so dedicated to their fans. It's really cool that with all the fame they don't ever forget their fan base who helped make them famous. I have a lot of respect for them because of what they do. Van Moody has such a unique voice, and the whole band itself is just incredibly talented in general, they should definitely be higher on this list
Five Finger Death Punch is my favorite band of all time, but why are they on this list? They're groove metal.
Why in the name of god is Five Finger Death Punch way the hell down here?
This is honestly, like, the greatest band there will ever be. Stunning percussion, vocals, and instrumental elements in every song.
Far from death more like nu-groove metalV 4 Comments
BEST BAND EVER!
One of the most amazing and influential bands lyrically and instrumentaly. No 2 songs are alike. They have only released one album and a single but has a huuuge following. They inspired me to try to start a band.The only name we can agree on now is "in the company of misery". Can't wait for B O's next album!
BEST BAND BOTH LYRICALLY AND INSTRUMENTALY. NO 2 SONGS ARE THE SAME, AS SAID BEFORE. IF YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THEM, LISTEN TO EVERY SONG THEY HAVE RELEASED
AND THANK ME LATER. EVERY SONG IS UNIQUE... I MEAN, YOU HAVE CRAWL, WHICH IS SLOW AND SAD (UNTIL THE END) AND THEN YOU HAVE HEDONIST, WHICH WILL HAVE YOU BANGING YOUR HEAD SO FAST AND SO HARD YOUR BRAINS WILL FLY OUT. I PERSONALLY RELATE TO SONGS LIKE
EXIT WOUNDS AND ENOUGH, ENOUGH NOW. NOAH, VINCENT, JOAKIM, NICK, AND NICHOLAS ARE JUST AMAZING MUSICIANS. CAN'T WAIT TILL THE DAY I GET TO MEET THEM IN PERSON.
CTE hasn't even been around for all that long, but they're definitely more talented than most (if not all) of the above-named bands. The screamer is one of the best I've heard in metalcore, and the cleans are some of the best I've heard in general. If you're looking for creativity, brutality, and amazing vocals; then look no further than Crown the Empire. M/
How can you possibly put crown the empire so low? From the amazing melodic sung songs by Andrew to the heavy screaming that Dave brings to the band, Whether it's Limitless, The Fallout, or the newest album The Resistance Rise of the Runaways, you can't not fall in love with their catchy choruses, heavy breakdowns, and perfect clean and screamed vocals.
As far as style and creativity this band has shown thru the support and overwhelming increase in popularity that they are metal core. With the vocalist (Andrew) sounding strong and sometimes very weak, gives this band no other metal core band has a unique personality.
There songs are so unique and creative they have to be one of my favorite bands of all timeV 15 Comments
Why on earth is Architects at 53? Are people going deaf? Dear Lord. They're an absolute fantastic band and deserve to be so much higher up. They've changed their sound in little bits throughout their albums but they've remained true to themselves, and their newest album absolutely rocks (not to mention how much meaning and significance it carries with Tom's passing.) Sam Carter's vocals are as powerful, emotional, and strong as ever in Holy Hell. Instrumentation has always been top-notch as well, not to mention their unique atmospheric thing they have going on in a lot of their stuff. Lyrics always have a point, with just the right amount of political sting, and carry a whole load of meaning. One of my all time favorite metalcore acts.
This is a fantastic METALCORE band. Slipknot, Pierce the Veil, Falling in Reverse and Sleeping with Sirens are NOT metalcore.
Anyways, Architects definitely deserve to be much further up the list, not only because they are actually metalcore, but because of interesting use of time signatures combined with complex guitar parts that do more than 0-0-0 make them stand out from many of those that are ranked higher. Also, Sam Carter's meaningful lyrics and soulful vocals cannot just be overlooked...
Absolutely absurd for Architects to be this low. They should be in the top five without any doubt. I personally would place them in the number one spot, but that's primarily because of my personal preference. Subjectivity aside, they are some of the most talented musicians anywhere on this list, and Sam Carter's lyrical abilities are second only to those of Keith Buckley from ETID.
How are these guys so low this list is ridiculous if architects is this low. Easily the best metalcore band right now with Sam's powerful lyrics and angelic voice number 1 for meV 32 Comments
This band is so awesome! They're vocalist is great because she can do intense screams and beautiful clean vocals. The guitar work is amazing and they have a kick ass drummer. - MetalFoREVer1228
Its more Deathcore than metalcore. Awesome band though!
Once I showed my friends "Panophobia", they didn't believe me that screamer and vocalist are the same person: "WHAT? THIS IS A GIRL? ", "HOLY SH-", "that voice". Well, I guess some stereotypes got broken on this day :D. - Flav
Is the great band from Canada..
And this band have a pretty vocal
After the burial... To say this band changed my life forever, the vocals, that fast drums, guitar work, those breakdowns, to say all their albums EPs are brutal awesome progressive and have deathcore elements, to say this ban should be 1st. And this band be my favorite of all time. And people listen to their albums vote for this move it from 162.
When I heard they broke up, I couldn't believe it. I really love their sound
I agree with the other guy constitution is amazing and earthsblood is really good too they deserve a higher spot on the list.
Consitution of Treason is and always will be one of my favorites!
These guys are a German machine, extreme music that everyone should listen!
They're more melodic death metal than metalcore

HSB is the only band, which songs I wanna listen louder, no matter how loud it actually is already. Great songs with perfect vocals and deep strong lyrics.V 4 Comments
Radke is an ass. they don't even sing about anything good. like tragic magic? That's a joke. get off this list. 70 is too high for them.
Radkes a douche, bands a bunch of douches known fact
Love these guys!
People should listen to the actual music and hear Ronnie's talent- not judge his band's music by what he may or may have not done
This band influenced As I Lay Dying along with many others on here, so I have no idea why they didn't make it anywhere on here.
How the hell is Zao so low on this list?
Listen to when blood and fire bring rest or liberate te ex inferis or even the fear that keeps us here
They influenced so many bands on this list
So much bs on this list
These guys are amazing! It is really sad to know that they aren't as well know though. Even though everyone of their songs rock!
Meaningful lyrics, great singing as we as great drums/guitar/bass. They use their emotions and what bugs them and they channel it into their songs. Give them a listen. Hush Yael is an extremely good song.
This band is just sick that's all I have to say and that is one of my favorite bands ever
They should be way up in the list!V 1 Comment
In my opinion this is definitely the best metalcore band in the scene right now no questions asked.
100% Pure Metalcore! Best new Metalcore band by far, just listen "Mirrors" and "Perception"!
Look at the Lyrics.. and the Music is amazing
I am very particular and parshal to certain bands and band sounds.This band has everything I love all in one package plus some. All out badass! (Jack York)V 5 Comments
