Damn great band love them too bits but you wont really like them if you aren't into some sick lyrics so 50 is reasonable but they at least deserving of a top 30 spot I mean come on bullet for my valentine sucks ass

43 Being As An Ocean

With lyrics that cut to the bone and a style that's unique and fresh like an update to the scene, they deserve wayyy more attention than what they have.

44 Demotional Demotional

Illusions is a great song

Their first album

45 Slipknot Slipknot Slipknot is a Nu 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.

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.

Literally the best band! Better than anything on this page!

I agree 1000% way better than anything in this list!

46 Soilwork Soilwork Soilwork is a Swedish melodic death metal band from Helsingborg. They are signed to Nuclear Blast. Formed in late 1995 by Björn Strid and Peter Wichers, originally under the name Inferior Breed, the band changed their name in late 1996 to Soilwork.

Why the hell is Soilwork on a Metalcore list... They're melodic death metal...

And they're better than most on the list

47 Motionless In White Motionless In White Motionless in White, often abbreviated MIW, is an American metalcore band from Scranton, Pennsylvania.

This is the band which can make you scream and if you haven't heard their songs start hearing. It will really raise up your goosebumps. This is the best band I've ever heard and is perhaps really underrated. Vote for them now

All aspects of their music is on point. They're amazing live, I saw them twice. Overall an amazing band and genuine bunch

Motionless In White has beautiful lyrics, Chris's vocals sound amazing and his leans are very beautiful, MIW needs to be in the top 10!

Best metalcore band

48 Palisades

Lol, bad girls track

49 Attack Attack!

I've listened to many metalcore bands but most sound all the same. I feel like this band is what most metalcore bands have been influenced by these days. Yeah they get a lot of hate but I feel like AA! Has the most unique sound and they will always be remembered. From the days where Austin Carlile and Johnny Franck were the vocals, to the last attack attack album with Caleb Shomo doing both vocals and screams. I will always think of this band when I hear the word Metalcore

THERE AMAZING CALEB, ANDREW, ANDREW AND JON ARE BEASTS THEY SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE

This Means War should at least put them in the top 10! I love Caleb Shomo

50 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.

I see starss rule I love this band so much

Yes, they are a rare talent, no doubt. 'New Demons' is fantastic.

Excellent band, HELL YEAH! But metalcore, not really anymore. ISS is more Post-Hardcore and alternative electronic rock now. Listen to the treehouse album and you'll understand.

WHOA PEOPLE REALLY?! ! THIS SHOULD BE SO MUCH FARTHER UP THAN THIS!

51 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.

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 metal

52 Dream On, Dreamer

Such an incredible and underrated band. Recently signed Rise Records. Give them a shot, "Downfall" and "Ambitions" are two of their better songs.

These guys should definitely be in the top 10 soon especially with their new album. They are going to be big one day!

100% Pure Metalcore! Best new Metalcore band by far, just listen "Mirrors" and "Perception"!

57 Eyes Set to Kill

The guy beneath me is right about Eyes Set To Kill being Post-Hardcore/Emo/Screamo and not even remotely close to Metalcore,however,New Jersey's Abacinate are one of the best examples of generic Metalcore,Fit For An Autopsy,Molotov Solution and Adversions Crown is what top notch Metalcore is.

Eyes Set T Kill is Post-Hardcore/Emo/Screamo.New Jersey's Abacinate is where it's at,one of the best examples of Metalcore properly executed,and much better than most of the bands on this list,and a lot of them aren't even close to Metalcore,what?.

58 God Forbid

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!

60 We Came As Romans We Came As Romans We Came as Romans (abbreviated as WCAR) is an American metalcore band from Troy, Michigan, formed in 2005. The band has gone through one name change and multiple lineup changes, and signed to Albany, New York label Equal Vision Records in 2009. We Came as Romans is managed by Outerloop Management and ...read more.

FIRST OF ALL, we came as romans is amazing because their lyrics is uplifting and really meaningful and you can relate to them. if you feel angry, depressed or whatever issue or problem you might be facing, just listen to them you'll feel RELIEVED and HAPPY
SECOND OF ALL, THEY ARE GREAT LIVE, really. Like really!
Third, ALWAYS and I mean ALWAYS, their chorus is amazing really, it's wonderful.

PS GO LISTEN TO " TO MOVE ON IS TO GROW (IT'S GREAT, I KEPT IT ON REPLAY FOR WEEKS ) AND "AN EVER GROWING WONDER" (line from the song: MY IMPERFECTIONS COMPOSE MY COMPOSURE AND I CAN LIVE WITH THEM.. )

REALLY ANY SONG BY THEM WILL GET YOU HOOKED IN A MINUTE LIKE IT DID TO ME

Could use a little work live, but they are with out a doubt one of the best; most unique sounding metal core bands of this generation.

I know they have gotten softer on their last album, but Dave still does some great screaming, and combined with Kyle's singing, makes this band the best out there.

Awesome Band
