Top 10 Best Metalcore Bands


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Dawn of Justice

Amazing group. Heavy and melodic with kick ass drum beats. Plus my favourite very like cleans. Totally recommend this album

82 Within the Ruins

Absolutely beastly combination of Metalcore/Mathcore, and such a talented group it's just not fair. Just check out 'Elite' or 'Phenomena' and you'll be hooked big time. Show time metal.

83 Job for a Cowboy Job for a Cowboy Job for a Cowboy is an American death metal band from Glendale, Arizona. Formed in 2003, the band's debut album Genesis was released in 2007, peaking at No.
84 Issues

This band is truly unique. They have a poppy, techno; hard sound that fits together nicely. Tyler Carter is extremely talented, and the rest of the band is top tier as well. They'll be on top eventually. Can't wait for their second album!

Yes, interesting combination of Metalcore and some odd-ball boy band. I prefer Woe, Is Me, but I do like this band.

Love this band and the self-titled... Every song is amazing and unique

85 Amity Affliction

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.

Check out this band they are unbelievably good!

87 I Prevail

I really like this band. They're pretty underrated and deserve more noticement. Really good band.

Insanely talented both musically and vocally. Check out their album Heart Vs. Mind.

88 The Last Ten Seconds Of Life
89 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

90 Ice Nine Kills

Really great band that are still trying hard to breakthrough the metalcore scene. I met them last year and they really are a standup bunch of guys. Really down to earth guys who are really passiomate about music and just wanna play music, not be famous or rich. And they're really good live. If you're looking for a good metalcore band with both clean and unclean vocals, give them a listen.

This band is amazing and highly underrated. they're one of the best bands I've seen live. I'm quite surprised at this list, in what world is slipknot metalcore? And why is AA and BMTH ahead of great bands like Ice Nine Kills, bless the fall, escape the fate, architects and many other good bands. This band, though underground, is really good and worth a listen

They just dropped the album of the year - every trick in the book. Seriously get this as soon as possible. These guys are going to be big

Best bands I've seen live, extremely underrated, check out the redone version of Safe is just a shadow

91 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.

92 All for Nothing
93 Emery
94 Despite My Deepest Fear
95 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.

I think dba fans are not just fans, they are dba itself like I am, if I can say this in the name of others.
Thank you guys, you gave us the best musical medicine that heals the heart and soul! DBA 4 LIFE

96 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

97 Secrets

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

98 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.

100 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?
