They're good but I see stars, suicide silence, and Attack Attack are better!

Formed in 2004, the group currently consists of vocalist Oliver Sykes, guitarist Lee Malia, bassist Matt Kean, drummer Matt Nicholls, and keyboardist Jordan Fish. They are signed to RCA Records globally and Columbia Records exclusively more.

All time best screamo band ever, the vocals of Oliver Sykes is just too hard to beat, especially in their album Count Your Blessings, and the song Pray For Plagues

Their singer must be the best screamer I've ever heard. And there's so much catchy riffs and everything! -

3 Pierce The Veil Pierce The Veil Pierce the Veil is an American post-hardcore band from San Diego, California. Formed in 2006, the band was founded by brothers Vic and Mike Fuentes after the disbandment of the group Before Today, which was formed out of the San Diego punk rock scene.

BEST SHOULD BE #1! I think they are the best band alive. They should not be #21. They are too good for that. Way to cool for 21. They are so hot. Each one of them. Overall They are a great band and need more concerts! Vic Fuentes has one of the most beautiful voices ever. It's so natural. They don't use an auto tune at all which is good. Listen to their music. They are the best.

The number one band that got me into rock even. Vic has the BEST voice out there. I don't care what others say he has such a beautiful voice that even makes a song that isn't so great SUPER AWESOME! I always melt every time I hear his voice.
I'm in love with him!

Pierce the veil is the best they deserve number 1 spot! But asking alexandria is competition for with them but pierce the veil will always come out on top for sure!

Pierce The Veil is one of my favorite bands! I always thought they were different. And besides, the band members are so nice to fans.

6 Of Mice & Men Of Mice & Men

HOW ARE THESE GUYS SO LOW?!?! Austin is probably one of the best screamers I've ever heard and their breakdowns are amazing!

What the hell is of mice and men doing here the should be top 10 easy.

I'm not even sure how its possible this is so low. Of mice and men are seriously one of the best bands ever and should be in the top ten easily. Their songs have deep meanings and their just badass in every way possible.

Austin is a legend. Listen to the bridge of Never Giving Up and listen to all of Bones Exposed

Best one out there. They combine the perfect amount of screaming to singing and play a lot of different types of stuff and are like no other band out there.

I love they're song "You be tails and I'll be sonic" It is assurably the most amazing song I've ever heard! ADTR IS AMAZING!

Jeremy McKinnon has got some real pipes. Homesick is just brilliant, but my favorite song has to be 2nd Sucks.

Best band ever. Lyrics are fun and meaningful. Helped me out many times when I was feeling rough.

8 Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping with Sirens is an American Rock band from Orlando Florida. The band formed in 2009. SWS lead singer is Kellin Quinn

Just the most amazing band! You'd better listen to them or else there isn't any point in reading the list. Do it now remember it later is the best song ever!

I love SWS SO much! Kellin has the voice of an Angel. I love the whole band, to its entirety. The music they produce is amazing, just as simple as that. Sleeping with sirens is on my top 3 list of my favorite bands. Keep up the good work, boys, I love you all.

I went and saw them last night and they were amazing they should definitely be higher up than this! Kellin's voice is amazing.

Kellin Quinn enough said. - Emofag

9 Falling In Reverse Falling In Reverse Falling in Reverse is an American post hardcore band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2008, signed to Epitaph Records.

They are the best. The singer (Ronnie Radke) was singing in Escape The Fate before. He is now in Falling In Reverse, and I think that etf is nothing without him, I can tell that falling in reverse will be so popular, they have one album for now. An album named "The Drug In Me Is You" Ronnie's growl is amazing.

Falling In Reverse is epic. Ronnie is so sexy... And I mean seriously, he has the best voice ever and it just makes me feel so good. I love him, and this is the best band ever. If you want a truly inspiring band look at Falling In Reverse. You'll get hooked like I did,

My friend showed me Falling in Reverse when I was having a hard time, Ronnie's story and his new attitude about life brought me out of the darkness I had put myself in. Their music is inspiring, not to mention all of them are extremily sexy espescially their new bassist, Ron Falling in Reverse forever and always!

I wouldn't say there sceamo

11 The Devil Wears Prada The Devil Wears Prada The Devil Wears Prada is an American metalcore band from Dayton, Ohio, formed in 2005. It consists of members Mike Hranica, Jeremy DePoyster, Andy Trick, and Daniel Williams.

Because they deserve the dead throne. No exceptions. No excuses. Mikey screams the pants off all these posers. Period.

They inspired me to scream. Mike heranica is the best ever, and hopefully one day my band will become as famous as there's

Still fly is the greatest cover to any song ever

This band is unique and you can't ever compare them to any other band.

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

This band is amazing chris is the best singer. Chris tries to reach out to people to let them know their not alone in this world and to let them know its ok to be different. He respects the way you are but wont take crap from anyone even if they are trying to change him he doesn't let that effect him he starts himself and lives his life his way. That's just some reasons why this band is the best at what they do. I can't go a day without listening to them.

This band is amazing. All the guys are super sweet, and the songs that have, are ones you can really relate to. I think this band deserves to be number 1. Not just because they are my favorite band, but because they are a terrific band.

Motionless in white is just amazing, I really don't see why people would not like them, well besides the fact that they are different, but it's a good thing to be different like us. A lot of us are called freaks, and outcasts because we're singled out, for being different. So let the freak in you show because being like everyone else will get you no-where in this world

Motionless in white are an amazing band, they sing/scream about what its like to be an outcast, they have an amazing singer (chris motionless) Chris tries so hard to reach out to people to tell them they aren't alone, no matter what this world challenges you with you aren't alone in it, its ok to be different. You shouldn't give what others think, its only an opinion. Don't let people change who you are, don't let anything be forced upon you, especially religion. Everyone should listen to them. They are just AMAZING, there are no words for how amazing and life-changing they are!

I think their new album is way too amazing. They improved a lot and they were doing incredible music before

Formed in 2003, the group began their first performances while a majority of the members were attending their senior year of high school, and soon began playing shows around Lancaster, before being signed to CI Records. Afterwards, more.

These guys rock. THey shouldn't be number 14. Best screamer and guit

Gotta love these guys. They are so technical, and never fail to impress with their depth of songwriting. They do not deserve to be this low on the list. Buy their Christmas album too, cause it's gonna rock.

There pretty epic not good enough for top ten but the shouldn't be 28th what

ABR are amazing and I can relate so much to their music! I love their song mariannas trench and I like how Mariannas trench (the band) also did a song called august burns red.

16 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 more.

I love WCAR and how they don't focus on the bad, negative things about the music but write about good things, not about hate.

These guys have it all! Screaming is great! Vocals kill! By far better than these top 10

These guys have a unique sound which is something I value in any screamo band. It's a must for me. I also know this is not an easy accomplishment adding to the fact they sound really good doing it. I have downloaded 1 album already and plan to download more. Keep up the good fight guys!

I love them Andy is my favorite love you guys

17 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.

Check out their newest album Digital Renegade and you will be hooked. Zach Johnson has a phenomenal scream and Devin Oliver has some solid clean vocals.

Seriously, listen to Zach Johnsons screams. They feel/sound so powerful and full of raw emotion. I see stars is for sure in my top 5 favourite bands of all time. When I saw them, they had an absolutely amazing live show, and we're just so enjoyable, and the electronics add so much fun, but it's also hardcore enough to have a pretty great mosh pit. All around great band

Great overall band, not for everybody, but they have a great style for anyone who likes dubstep type music, or synthcore. Amazing vocals and great screams. This band also has some variety, which you don't see in a lot of bands. Id put I See Stars in the top 5!

Listen to mobbin out on treehouse! It's my favorite from this outstandingly amazing band!

18 Memphis May Fire

Matty Mullins is a epic singer this band is off the chain

Matty definitely has one of the most recognizable voices out there, be it screams or singing. Heavy and melodic music, pure awesome

This has to be my favorite band at the moment. it has a great mix of vocals and screaming. I used to love AA, but check em out on youtube live. they suck. : what a let down...

Memphis may fire is my favorite screamo/emo band. Matty makes ordinary life problems into stories that have never been told. I think this band is amazing

19 Silverstein

They are just as good live as they are on recording! Plus their instrumentals are unique and well-structured.

Way too low! Most of the bands rated above them have 2 or 3 tracks per album that are respectable. You can and should listen to Silverstein straight through. Every song has raw emotion, harmonic vocals, melodic riffs, solos and above all the sickest and cleanest screaming voice in the music industry.

A band that has been around for decades and has consistent albums to solidify their greatness. In terms of screamo, they helped define it, especially having one lead singer, unlike most bands, for clean and unclean vocals. Silverstein also has helped with depression for many. Top 5 in any category!

20 Alesana

All of Alesana's music has a story behind it! They're new album is better than any other album out there! The should be 1st!

There amazing! They have that mix of soft and loud I love it

21 Alexisonfire Alexisonfire Alexisonfire is a five-piece Canadian post-hardcore band that formed in St. Catharines, Ontario in 2001. The band consists of George Pettit, Dallas Green, Wade MacNeil, Chris Steele, and Jordan Hastings.

This group was out before any if these groups in the top ten. They created the standard with so little influence before them. They had no one to Try and be better than. 6th isn't bad but I feel they were better than some if these other bands. Especially since they never completely went mainstream.

Alexis is the best band easy, even now they've disbanded all of their music will reign supreme until the end of time!

All the bands are mediocre compared to alexisonfire, they were the first screamo/post hardcore band to break into popular music and although they're broken up they remain one of my most favoured bands ever!

Actually Screamo unlike most of the bands above AOF.The only bands above that are Screamo are Asking Alexandria and Bring Me The Horizon.Anyways Alexisonfire is one of the few Screamo/Post Hardcore groups that I like.-DarkBoi-X

Issues is amazing. Not many people know about them, but they have real talent. I see them getting more popular when they release their first full size album.

Just take a moment.. And listen to the lyrics

Love the music...rock the world

The vocalist has an amazing voice! It's better than the voice of Justine Bebeir!

24 Miss May I Miss May I Miss May I is an American metalcore band from Troy, Ohio. Formed in 2007, they signed to Rise Records in 2008 and released their debut album, Apologies Are for the Weak through the label while the members were still attending high school.

Best screamo vocals I've ever heard!

Shane's singing is so and compliments Micah's screaming beautifully. Love these guys!

Best screamo band! But it's been forever since they released an album

This band is pure awesome! Just listen to their song Hush Yael! Best screamo band ever, and their Christian!

27 Killswitch Engage Killswitch Engage Killswitch Engage is an American metalcore band from Westfield, Massachusetts, formed in 1999 after the disbanding of Overcast and Aftershock.

These guys rock. The songs are well put together, and howard jones's screams are fantastic. The songs stay heavy too, they don't start out heavy then get all 1 direction then heavy again.. Unfortunately most screamo songs now a days have a girly section somewhere that takes away from how awesomely heavy the rest of the songs is. KSE doesn't do girly.. even when howard is singing its methodical and deep. No frills here..

Howard Jones can scream hella good. Better than Bullet For My Valentine! Something other bands don't have is that he can SING!

Killswitch for the win without a doubt. listen to this fire, my curse ( and make sure it's the heavy version, there are 2 versions), rose of sharyn, and save me best songs ever

I love them, their music helps me calm down. I also love how in most of their songs they have a positive message.

Explain to me why these guys aren't in the top ten. I mean come on they scream well and their singer has an extremely unique voice and can carry melodies beautifully. Not to mention the few acoustic songs out there by them are amazing.

CTE definitely deserves to be in the top ten. These guys are amazing. Andy sings very beautifully, and David is an amazing screamer. Andy screams great too. So why is this number 47? I haven't heard one song by them that I don't like.

They have amazing vocals! Having two vocalists really does something for them and their lyrics are really amazing!

This band is absolutely the best and deserve to be at the top of the charts, along side falling in reverse

29 Woe, Is Me

I like you woe is me

By:Ryan from Indonesian

They are the best with BVB, The Devil Wears Prada, A Day To Remember and The Yeah Yeah Yeah's

Forever in our hearts!

30 The Used

By far the best band of all time. Meaningful lyrics, good sound, everything. Plus, they don't only do heavier songs, they have many slow acoustic songs as well. Also, Bert McCracken is awesome live and makes seeing them such a joy! I love them. They are my favorite band.

The Used are one of my fave bands because they are different but in the best way possible. They have a wide variety of music and it never gets old. As people they all seem really down to earth too. I am actually quite shocked they are so low on the list.

Listen to their "hands and Faces"... You'll know what I mean!

Should bve number 1 smh

This is one of the most amazing bands I've come across, they have very inspirational songs like facedown, your guardian angel, Godspeed, etc. they have amazing vocals. They have an amazing mixture of screaming and regular vocals in their songs. Personally I think they deserve a higher ranking but that's just my opinion.

Best one with their song, Face Down m/

Oh my gosh love their songs! Try them for sure!

One of the only screamo bands with a top 40 hit ever and they aren't even top 10 :(

Best screamo band ever, I listen to all the bands on this list and love them all, but Chelsea Grin definitely deserve to be higher up!

One of the best bands. They deserve top 5 at least. Some of the most hectic songs ever that just make you want to get up and move.

36 Dance Gavin Dance

These guys changed the game with the introduction of R^^B and screamo. They took dual vocals to a more artistic level, offering compare and contrast of vocal abilities. This, bottled with unconventional guitar work ala Thomas Erak, deep bass lines and intense drumming, Dance Gavin Dance has risen to the top as one of the most influential bands in the scene today. With influences like Thursday, At the Drive-In, Deftones, Daitro, Sigur Ros, Dr. Octagon and Aretha Franklin, they bring a mixture of anticipation, passion, soul and intensity.

Mother of god, is this band good. The chillest songs I have ever heard. Johney Craig is among gods, so is Kurt. If you have beer listened to this band, there is something wrong with you.

Dance Gavin Dance is amazing they should be higher like it is aginst the law to have Dance Gavin Dance down here.

Listen to unseasy heart weight the most then you'll see how great this band is

38 Attila Attila Attila is an American metalcore band from Atlanta, Georgia, formed in 2005. Frontman Chris Fronzak started the band in high school and, not wanting to use typical death metal terms, adopted the name from Attila the Hun, which he came across in a book.

Attila is one of the bands that makes you feel better about your day and makes your problems seem lesser, they are the best escape from reality, they should be higher up.

Attila and attack attack need to be up higher then they are

ABSOLUTELY THE BEST RAW screaming vocalists in all of metal, alt, screamo history and the best there ever will be.

39 Attack! Attack!

They are the best and my friend thinks Caleb Shomo is the hottest thing in the world. They are the best thing in the world. I do agree with my friend. My favorite song is stick stickly, the best in the world. I am a huge traveler and I don't miss a single concert that they are in. I went to Warpt Tour last year in Idaho and it was the best thing. I haven't missed a concert since I was twelve and I'm fifteen. It is sick. My family is insanely rich and I get all there money no that they died, sad really but good for Attack Attack. THEY ARE THE BEST IN THE WHOLE WORLD!

They are my favorite band! My favorite song is The Wretched and it's off their This Means War album! It's their third and final studio album before the band departed. My dream would be for the band to get back together but I think it's improbable since the screamers from this band have their own new bands.

This is the sikkest band in the world. I love these guys. All of the band members my other frind think he is the hottest thing in the world and I sorta agree. I when to warped tour and saw them and now I am obsessed!


40 Trivium Trivium Trivium is an American Heavy Metal band from Orlando, Florida, formed in 1999. Their frontman, Matt Heafy, lead guitarist Corey Beaulieu and Bassist Paulo Gregoletto are the band's most consistent members and have appeared in every album since. more.

They should at lest be number 4 or 5 because black veil bribes barely screams and suicide silence has bad vocals honestly

This is the best band I see here. Even though its not screamo at all, they're the best. They are incredible musicians and great people who actually hang out with their fans. AWESOME!

What is this...31? Are you kidding me? Trivium is and should be number 1! Best vocals, screams, riffs etc... don't take my word for it... Listen to songs such as 'built to fall', pull harder on the strings of your martyr, no hope for the human race, or the entire 'Shogun' album.. They genuinely kick ass in my opinion :P

They're metalcore, not screamo. BUT STILL. Listen and you'll understand the awesomeness.

Atreyu is definitely too low on here. A deathgrip on yesterday is a great album. Some of the bands on here are not screamo to be honest.

Atreyu should be in the top 5! Check out this band you won't regret it.. You will be hooked with their songs plus alex varkatzas' voice is just amazing it's so powerful! Check out " the crimson"

How are they so low? They're awesome! - SkullKid101

Sure not all songs are a hit but "lipstick and black" "bleeding mascara" and "ravenous" are great. They have a powerful duo. "Gallows" "blow" "anitlove grand" and "when two are one" are also great.

Come on, some of the oldest, most inspirational, screamo bands out there, and they're number 12? Without them most of these bands wouldn't even exist. They have to at least be in the top 10. With albums like Full Collapse and War all the time, they influenced tons of bands.

Slipknot 45?... What? They should be #1! What is this? They are on top, every band looks up to them.

Good band but not screamo. - DarkBoi-X

Get Scared should get higher. So vote for Get Scared. There so cool and awesome, they are my favourite band. So get Get Scared Higher!

Love them! They have a great sound

I love them there amazing and they have just the right amount of screaming and they have amazing I personally think they deserve higher at least like top 30

Not screamo. Not even emo. They're post-hardcore, or alternative metal. - Gruunge

48 Dead by April

Dead by April has been around for a couple of years now, but I just found them, and I completely fell in love with their music, and it's hard for me to get into a band this much, other than I See Stars.

This band has the best screaming vocals I've heard in my whole life, check out the songs "Painting Shadows" and "Losing You". Jimmie Strimell is the best screamer ever, that's for sure, and one thing the other bands don't have is the amazing singing talent which Dead by April has.

Man! They should be at no. 1! No question!

I found this band last year and LOVED them! Their song "Dreaming" was my #1 fave!

BEST screamo band I've EVER set my ears to, I've heard over 100 from different countries, and by far this band is up with ASKING ALEXANDRIA! For serious screamo lover only, should be in top 5 MINIMUM, and with more world-wide support these guys are going to be HUGE!

Aussie metalcore/post-hardcore is where it's at. Best band ever, Joel writes the most amazing lyrics and the whole band does an amazing job at producing the sound. They should definitely be higher.
- coming from a 12 year old.

Great and inspirational lyrics. I love the screams and clean vocals. Everything about this band is amazing and I accidentally found them on YouTube when I was looking up Beartooth songs. First song I ever heard by them was, "Pittsburgh," and ever since I've been hooked. By far my favorite band of all time, and my favorite song is, "Open Letter."

Top 10 band for sure
