Top 10 Best Metalcore Bands

The best Metalcore bands there are on this planet...

The Contenders: Page 5

81 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.

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.

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 sound

This the band should be #1 - Derrick_Fox

They're a highly underrated band amazing clean vocals balanced with good screams and instrumentals.

The Amity Affliction are without a doubt hands down one of the most melodic and most hard band out their if you don't believe me check out Bondi St Blues. Trust me they are amazing.

84 Glass Cloud

Check out this band they are unbelievably good!

85 The Last Ten Seconds Of Life
86 Born of Osiris Born of Osiris Born of Osiris is an American deathcore band, formed in 2003 in Palatine, a suburb of Chicago. The group underwent several name changes, including Diminished, Your Heart Engraved, and Rosecrance, before finally settling on Born of Osiris in 2007, basing the name on the Egyptian deity Osiris, and the more.

Born of Osiris shouldn't be on this, they're deathcore

87 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

88 In Fear and Faith

Incredible band. Listen to their new album "In Fear and Faith" and you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. Specifically, "It All Comes Out". Awesome song.

89 Dead by April

Amazing singer (and growler), production and instrumental. One of the most underestimated bands in the world. My favorite band, hands down.

Dead by april has amazing melodies paired with great screaming that doesn't hurt the ears, great vocals by the main vocalist and finally their lyrics are awesome. I vote dba because they really are the best

Hard to find metal bands with such good lyrics.

By far the best Band in this list!

90 All for Nothing
91 Emery
92 Despite My Deepest Fear
93 Caliban

They must be in first 5.

Yes, 'I Am Nemesis' is heavy personified, and 'Davy Jones' is spectacular - as is Matt Heafy's appearance on 'Ghost Empire' with the fantastic 'Falling Downwards'.

They definitely need to be in the top 5!

Just awesome

94 Secrets

Listen to this and compare it to Bullet For My Valentine and Avenged Sevenfold and tell me who's better.

95 Sylosis

Okay wait, something's wrong. These guys deserve to be number 1. And they aren't even metalcore! Thrash metal and melodic death metal!

Not a metalcore band. My personal favorite band, definitely not a metalcore band laugh out loud. The best here is As I Lay Dying...

No, they're a modern thrash band, but I'm glad they're posted here, because if you're into excellent metal then you should buy this album anyway.

97 Whitechapel Whitechapel Whitechapel is an American deathcore band from Knoxville, Tennessee. The band is named after the Whitechapel district in East London, England, referencing the series of murders committed by Jack the Ripper.

They should be in top 3...
My Opinion is - 1. Lamb of God 2. Whitechapel 3. The Black Dahlia Murder.
Why them sissy bands on the top 5?

98 Betraying the Martyrs
99 Letlive Letlive Letlive, stylized letlive., is an American post-hardcore band from Los Angeles, California. The band consists of lead vocalist Jason Aalon Alexander Butler, guitarist Jeff Sahyoun, bassist Ryan Jay Johnson and drummer Loniel Robinson. V 1 Comment
