Top Ten Best Screamo Bands


The Contenders: Page 5

81 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.

Definitely way better than any of the other bands in the top ten. The latest album is the bomb. I saw them live, and they were amazing. This band is a REAL screamo band. Not asking alexandria.

They really should be a lot higher on the list they are really good

82 Circle Takes the Square

This is the only screamo band on the list, therefore they win. They're chaotic and crazy and overall amazing.

None of these bands are screamo, with the exception of a few... I HATE METAL CORE! If Devil Wears Prada is screamo, then I'm Santa ' Clause

One of if not the greatest bands, not only in emo/screamo history, but in ALL of ROCK AND ROLL history

How is the current top ten "screamo"? This beats all of them with As the Roots Undo. - SevenTreeTool

83 Senses Fail

You can see how Buddy Nelson's scream has developed through all of his albums, it becomes more emotional, sad, and angry through each album. You can tell he puts a lot of feeling and emotion into his scream. Senses Fail easily deserves a higher ranking than 87. My all time favorite band.

I don't see why this is so low on the list, other than the fact that they don't scream in all of their songs? Even then, this is one of my favorite bands. I've been listening to them well over five years now.

Buddy Nelson's screaming has devoloped so much and even though the band has lost so many members they still are amazing and going strong with their new album

84 Fall of Troy

Great band, really progressive, very underrated, some of the best.

86 Orchid

They are better than pretty much all the bands here. Orchid is also one of the only actual screamo bands on this list, a list which comprises simply of terrible metalcore bands who should not even be on this list.

DevilDriver? Really? They are melodic death metal, not screamo! I wish people wouldn't label anything with harsh or screaming vocals, "screamo". It really is quite an insult to the actual music genre. Screamo is Circle Takes The Square, Saetia and Pg.99.
I choose Orchid as the best because they were the first screamo band I actually heard.
Some of these band shouldn't be on the list, they're just terrible scenecore bands. - YourGothicNightmare

#93 on a screamo list and I've seen 3 screamo bands. We live in a sad day and age, my friends.

A real screamo band

89 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.

This band should be in the top 10 or top 20 best screamo bands!

Sorry, but I think calling Whitechapel screamo is a little insulting.

This band is just so Awesome deserves to be higher

Whoa whoa whitechapel is awesome.

98 Architects Architects Architects is a British Metalcore band formed in 2004 in Brighton, East Sussex. Consisting of five band members, Architects' discography consists of seven studio albums and one split EP.

This guys are my favorite band ever, they are way to good to be at 89, all their albums are great, and their live performances are AWESOME!
They have perfect vocals, they have perfect riffs, and they are way much better than Asking Alexandria who are at number one, Architects are at the same level (if not in a higher level) that Bring Me The Horizon are and if BMTH is at second then Architects should be at least in the top 5, even though most of the bands here can be classified as "Screamo"...

The best band ever, they're music makes me jizz, Feather Of Lead is a beautiful song, and Hollow Crown is a great album

This band is amazing. I cannot stop listening to their album Hollow Crown. This band is pure gold.

These guys started with (and continue to have) well balanced, thoughtful material. You can't get a better mixture of raw emotion and addicting riffs!
Cool band, cool dudes.

99 Make Me Famous

Awesome underground band they would be higher if people knew them
