Top 10 Best Metalcore Bands


The Contenders: Page 7

121 Hopes Die Last

This is what I call "great post-hardcore" If you don't know them, please try them out. You won't be disappointed.

122 Protest The Hero

Great band out of Ontario, Canada. Can almost hit the same notes as Freddie Mercury, and growl with the best of them. Amazing talent across the board with these guys!

So these guys are Metalcore? I love them, but I have no idea what genre they belong to. 'Volition' is a pleasure though, no question.

124 Emmure Emmure Emmure is an American metalcore band formed in 2003. Originally based in New Fairfield, Connecticut, but now residing in Queens, New York, the group has a total of seven releases, with their first public release being a 2006 EP entitled The Complete Guide to Needlework.

They were amazing in Ireland at the Mosh pit tour

125 Upon This Dawning

Their gonna be huge I liked their first album but maybe top 50 not top 10 but a good band not 127th on this list

Their 2014 album is the best metal album I've heard in over 3 years.

This band definitely should be on the list.

126 Mudvayne Mudvayne Mudvayne was an American heavy metal band from Peoria, Illinois formed in 1996. Originally from Bloomington, Illinois, they are known for their sonic experimentation, innovative album art, face and body paint, masks and uniforms.

Yes, excellent band that were ahead of their time.

127 Chimaira Chimaira Chimaira was an American heavy metal band from Cleveland, Ohio. Formed in 1998, the group was a notable member of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal scene.
128 ERRA

Please give these guys a listen. They are one of the most complete bands I've ever heard, and deserve far more recognition than they've gotten. In just two albums they absolutely shattered my conception of what I considered a good band to be. These guys are the future of the genre. Check out "White Noise", "The Architect", "Alpha Seed", "Dreamwalkers", "Hybrid Earth", "Rebirth", "Warrior", and "Lights City".

They are gonna get big. They are 322th now, just to know for you who see them in top 10 in the future - this is how they started. - Mixer

My favorite Metalcore band. It is truly amazing and deserves more than what they have.

Yep, so many of these bands are way down there that should be higher. - utahman1971

129 Stigmata

Best metalcore band form Russia.

130 Alesana

Good band

131 Eskimo Callboy

Definitely a great band, that many people are unaware. Listen to them, they are great!

This band is Way to unknown

132 Make Them Suffer
133 More Than a Thousand

Just check out their last album, Volume IV: Make Friends and Enemies (2010). They're better than most from the top 10.

134 Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!

Just listen to the song Restart its like a perfect blend of ADTR and Four Year Strong.

135 I, the Breather

Seen them at warped tour 2014 sad that they only had a crowd of about 70-100 people amazing lyrics and riffs. they will blow up very soon mark my words

This is the band that just takes my breath away with every song.

This band is probably my 3rd favorite band of all time. They deserve so much more than they already got. Songs like False Profit, Conquer, Dear:Devil, Soul:Seek are fantastic. Its sad that they split up, but what they have should be given more attention.

136 Sleeping Giant
137 Myka, Relocate
138 This or the Apocalypse
139 Sworn In

Best Metalcore band ever.Amazing breakdownsAmazing unique screamingHardcore punk singing in The Lovers/The DevilsComplex guitar riffsAnd great lyrical themes

140 Sylar

Sylar is a technical metalcore band. Although I don't usually like hearing technical stuff in metal, these guys really make it work. Jayden is one of the sickest vocalists I have ever heard, his screams sound so raw and powerful, and although he doesn't usually do lows, in songs like Golden Retreat, they sound super brutal. Miguel's clean vocals are also some of the best I have heard, this band is incredible, they should really be much higher in this list
