Deathcore Bands that are Stylistically Similar to Melodic Death Metal Bands

Some of these bands sound very similar to their Melo-death predecessors like The Black Dahlia Murder, At The Gates, In Flames, Children of Bodom, and Darkest Hour. TBDM is probably the most influential Melo-Death band to these Deathcore bands partially because in their early day they toured with hardcore bands (only because there wasn't a death metal scene in Michigan yet, according to Trevor), which is another reason why people mistake TBDM as a Deathcore band.

3 As Blood Runs Black As Blood Runs Black
