Top 10 Best Metalcore Albums

The Top Ten Best Metalcore Albums

1 Shadows Are Security - As I Lay Dying

Without a Doubt the definitive Metalcore sound that will stand the test of time. - SummonSkeletons

2 Ascendancy - Trivium

Trivium again. But this album is too good to leave out of any Metalcore list.

Better than In Waves, which for some reason didn't get me like this album did. I love every song on this record. Rain is my favourite track :l - Lem

so good.

3 As Daylight Dies - Killswitch Engage

A classic Metalcore album with songs such as My Curse, This Fire Burns and Holy diver etc, easily one of the best.

Why the hell still not on the first position?

Probably best modern album of all time

Simply the best

4 Waking the Fallen - Avenged Sevenfold

Even though they stopped making metalcore after it, what is still one of Avenged's best albums with amazing songs like I Won't See You Tonight, Unholy Confessions, Chapter Four and Second Heartbeat. I personally dislike their first metalcore album but with what they really nailed it with a perfect mix of clean and screamed vocals.

Avenged Sevenfold make great songs as well as great albums but this album is up there on any list for Metalcore albums. One of their best albums yet.

Awesome album

This is a very overrated album its just Meh - christangrant

5 Jane Doe - Converge

Not just the greatest metal core album, one of the greatest albums of all times in any genre

One of the best Metalcore albums out there, Jane Doe is a classic.

Brutal, great songwriting, a classic, heavy as #%€@

Why isn’t this on the top already?

6 The Fall of Ideals - All That Remains

Talk about the bleeding obvious. All That Remains' masterpiece is immense riff after immense riff, blast best after blast beat, incredible solo after incredible solo, and every song is more memorable than the one before. The most talented band going around. Case closed!

This album was set on repeat and cranked to 11 most of my teenaged years, still only found one other album I loved more than this

Absolutely the band has become rock now

7 Constellations - August Burns Red

MASTERPIECE! "Ghosts" and "Mariana's Trench" are awesome!

The most impressive metalcore cd of all time. Every song stands out, every word hits you right in the chest. From Matt's ridiculous drumming to JB's solos; all the riffs, the song structures and of course Jake's perfect delivery make for an unbelievably hard hitting effort. There will never be a more definitive album to showcase what metalcore "could have been" at its prime. August Burns Red are still showing us how it's supposed to be done in a mostly washed-up genre filled with clichés and dishonest musicians.

8 The Poison - Bullet for My Valentine

34th? This album features some of the best metalcore songs ever made such as "Tears Don't Fall," "The Poison," and "Suffocating Under Words of Sorrow."

Best Bullet For My Valentine album by far. One of the best examples of metalcore through and through.

This is truly an amazing album by one of the best, if not the best Metalcore band out there.

Simply the best album ever made

9 Horizons - Parkway Drive

Immediately grabs you this album dose

10 Sempiternal - Bring Me the Horizon

This album changed game! The best metalcore album ever! 10/10

Full of experimentations

The Newcomers

? Earthwalker - In Hearts Wake
? III: In the Eyes of Fire - Unearth

The Contenders

11 The End of Heartache - Killswitch Engage

Why the hell is this in 12th place?

12 An Ocean Between Us - As I Lay Dying

For me it's the best metalcore-album in history. It starts with a 1 minute intro leading perfectly into one of As I Lay Dying's best songs: "Nothing Left" (and it ends in a piano-play). Besides the album contains extremely awesome songs like "The Sound Of Truth", "Forsaken" (aw god that riff! ) or "An Ocean Between Us". And not only these highlights... I think all other songs are very good metalcore-songs, too. Literally like Sum41's Debut-Album-Title: "All Killer No Filler"! Some songs are heavy, some are more beautiful and calmer.
All in all the album is an impressive record with high variety and virtuosity. And in my opinion this is a perfect metalcore-album! - Flav

One of the greatest Metalcore albums from one of the best Metalcore bands. A classic album indeed.

13 In Waves - Trivium

Although, not originally a Metalcore band, Trivium's In Waves is a great album for any Metalcore fan.

14 The Powerless Rise - As I Lay Dying

THIS IS EXTREMELY TOUGH CHOICE! I LOVE THEM ALL! I love Waking The Fallen by A7X, Motionless In White’s Creatures, The Devil Wears Prada’s With Roots Above, Trivium’s Ascendancy and In Waves, I love basically all As I Lay Dying, Bullet For My Valentine, Asking Alexandria, Bring Me The Horizon, A Day To Remember, Miss May I, and many many other bands that I either forgot or are not as well known (While She Sleeps, Betraying The Martyrs,...). Damn, I love metalcore genre so much. But this album, with Parallels and Anodyne Sea is true masterpiece. - Mixer

15 Shogun - Trivium
16 The Oncoming Storm - Unearth

Greatest album of all time. Unearth is melodic and heavy at the same time. And they don't need to sing every chorus. All their albums have been good but Oncoming Storm is by far the best.

One of the best metalcore album ever - HatebyDesign

17 Calculating Infinity - The Dillinger Escape Plan

Great album

18 Ire - Parkway Drive
19 Alive or Just Breathing - Killswitch Engage

One of their first albums, Alive or Just Breathing was a stepping stone in the career of Killswitch Engage. A true masterpiece and ideal for any Metalcore fan.

Simply one of the best representations of the genre

20 Disarm the Descent - Killswitch Engage
21 Suicide Season - Bring Me the Horizon
