173 Times of Grace

I don't know if Adam D's and J, Leech's masterpiece is up here, but it's Metalcore at its very best. 10/10 listening.

174 Coldrain

Love this band.

175 Cane Hill

They just offer that something different. can't compare them to any other bands... Although Asking Alexandria is clearly the best these guys are worth a listen


They are good! - utahman1971

Are you all crazy I hate cane hill.sorry

176 Vanna

Finally, a screaming vocalist in which every word can be deciphered. I love this band to no end. They swapped their line-up for the better, each member bringing something incredible to the table. Joel's smooth vocals, Sean's rolling basslines, and don't let me forget about the drums. Vanna is onto something truly special, with their latest album "All Hell" already making its way onto billboard charts. - Dorito

In my opinion, Vanna has the grittiest metalcore sound and sounds like no other band.

177 Slayer Slayer more.
178 Demon Hunter Demon Hunter

The other Bands are great, but this one is my favourite, and like 'RockRetard' says they are unique and have a good balance between scremaing, singing and just plain awesome songs.

Possibly the greatest metalcore band of all time. People tend to hate on them because of their Christianity and morals, but seriously, looking at their musical skill, they beat out bands like A7X, Bullet For My Valentine, and some bands on here aren't even metalcore! DH deserves to be in the top ten.

Most unique band that can combine singing, metal and screaming to awesome effect. - RockRetard

Why is Demon Hunter not higher on this list?

179 Enter Shikari

The first metalcore band I've ever herd, like them a lot, great innovating style, huge masterpieces, my favourite song is Sssnakepit, love it

More of a Post-Hardcore band than a Metalcore band, but still utterly amazing...

I <3 Enter Shikari but they aren't metalcore laugh out loud

180 Underoath Underoath

This band get better with every album, they don't sound like all of the other bands out there and the mix is brilliant. They're meaningful and if you listen to their latest album, lost in the sound of seperation over a couple of times you'll find yourself completely hooked into their style

Easily the greatest band on this list. They created 2 almost deathcore albums early in their career and with lineup changes, made their way through their progression of slightly lighter old fashioned deathmetal all the way to their classic Indie Sounding classic Screamo sound that inspired countless other bands on this list. Plus creating the breakthrough album Define The Great Line. What a genius band!

Literally the greatest band ever. I'm not even religious and I still love their music. It's a shame that they're breaking up :/.

Another band that deserves more recognition. - utahman1971
